Business building is mostly perceived as hard, challenging, tough, etc. It doesn’t always have to be! In this blog, I’ve come up with a few “fun” business-building activities that you can integrate into your daily schedule right now.
- Subscribe to a business-oriented podcast. I’m definitely a fan of podcasts, but if you’re into reading you can subscribe to blogs or e-newsletters or even groups, like this one, too. But I don’t want you to just look up random business themed content. I want you to begin to follow leaders and entrepreneurs that you will actually enjoy listening to or reading from. This is what will make it worthwhile. And it doesn’t have to be only one – you can follow various leaders. The point is that you are taking a step towards learning more and therefore continuing your business education in an easy and effective way. And bonus? It’s free content, and still tremendously valuable.
- Make yourself more visible. Ok, so I know that this doesn’t sound fun to a lot of people, but it totally can be if you go into it with an open mind. Whatever social media platforms you use, start posting more frequently. Share pictures, infographics, quote images, videos, whatever you find inspirational. This isn’t about posting just to post. This is about getting comfortable with putting yourself out there in a way that shows who you are, what you’re about, what you believe in, and what inspires you. You can absolutely create and follow a content strategy for this if you have one. I personally plan content at the end of each week for the following week.
- Follow and engage with people in your industry. Mention them, share their work, and comment on their posts. Social networks are meant for engagement, and people love it. I get thrilled every time I see someone sharing my content on their platforms. It brings me so much joy. So, spread the love. Who can you share about? Or talk about? Or mention? You might be surprised by the conversations that happen because of this.
