WEBINAR – Which Hat Are You Wearing Today?
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 – 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (ET)

Freelancers, in Luke Mysse’s view, are really “solopreneurs”—entrepreneurs who single handedly wear a lot of different hats, and he knows firsthand how donning all those different hats can make you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world. A veteran solopreneur himself, Luke will show you how to feel lighter by wearing these hats better and getting more done both professionally and personally. (Hint: Wearing your hats better increases the velocity of your business, which in turn leads to more success—and more time to do the things you love.)
In this webinar, Luke will help you organize your hat rack. That is: identify your different hats, understand how they fit into your life and your business, and see what you can accomplish when they’re well organized.

You’ll learn about:

  • The Operations Hat: Envisioning your perfect week.
  • The Marketing Hat: Identifying your business’s wants and needs.
  • The Creative Hat: Staying fresh and discovering your reset button.
  • The Planning Hat: Knowing your next move.
