Hire yourself

“What if you hire yourself?”

There are two ways to interpret this question. 

First, are you good enough to hire yourself—would you pay your rate to work with yourself? If not, what can you do to get to that rate—what is the outcome you need to provide to yourself that would make your price worth it? 

This works best when you’re part of your own target market, of course, though this thought exercise can still be useful. 

Second, if you actually took the time to hire yourself and your skillset, what would happen? This applies doubly if you are a freelancer or working in a services business, in which other people hire you to contribute to their work.

It’s a good way to make a living and to start a business, though hiring yourself to work on your business—or to contribute to your own work—will be the best way to take things to the next level. 

For example, if you’re a freelance writer, writing your own story and building a brand for your writing will not only be better for your business, it’ll also draw in more of the projects and clients you actually want to work with.
