Oh yes, have I been there!
If you're new to me... hi there! My name is Sherri King and I'm a travel agent and travel and lifestyle content creator.
I have had the honour of working with some of the top travel brands such as Viking Cruises, Pursuit Collection, Rocky Mountaineer Rail Tours, East Winds St. Lucia, Booking.com, Reservations.com, Kingfisher Resort & Spa, Fairmont Hotels, Hilton Hotels, to name a few.
And while that all sounds magical (which it is!), building this business was no walk in the park.
In fact, when I first started my digital nomad journey in 2016, I had NO idea how to grow my side hustle into a full-time gig.
I just knew I wanted to find a way to work from anywhere.
But in May 2020, I had the rug pulled out from under me when I was laid off from my 17-year university marketing job.
So now it's been 6 months solo and all the things I mentioned above are real struggles.
Then I discovered a great way to check tasks off my list, get feedback on my crazy ideas, have that bit of virtual watercooler chat time, and be more productive so I can spend more time playing.
Because I finally nailed down the essential ingredients to building a successful remote work strategy and I want to share them with you.
Here’s the truth: If you’re going to build a successful business and work remotely, then you’re going to have to get real about, well… BEING PRODUCTIVE!
It doesn’t matter how great of an entrepreneur you are. If you don’t know how to keep up with the workload, build your social media presence, find clients that need what you have to offer, and actually make money from your services, that business isn't going anywhere.
Successful entrepreneurs know that in order to build a business that doesn’t include you working 24/7, begging for clients, or playing the “I'll waive my fee” game, you need to have three things in place:
And that's to know your goals, be productive, and never stop learning.
Because at the end of the day, if you don't get your projects done on time, and have a trusted community of people who will give you authentic feedback and support... your business isn't going to get very far, right?!
Take it from someone who's been working a full time job plus a freelance side hustle for 22 years — once you have these three ingredients nailed down, you're well on your way to building a successful business that gives you the income and the impact you've always wanted.
So let’s do this.
