Why You Need Some Easy-Mode Projects In Your Business?
Today we’re talking about why you need to have some Easy Mode projects in the mix of your biz and how to make them happen. If you list out all the things you do in your business - the different types of projects, the different responsibilities, things you create, people you meet with… how many of them feel a tad heavy, maybe slightly stressful…and how many of them feel easy, light, and just a joy to do. Now, we can’t have ONLY easy tasks in our business…we can love the easy and the more challenging things…but we can build in more things into our work that feel easy, that have a high ROI on our limited investment and time spent. What easy-mode revenue streams, projects, and "side hustles" are you ready to share? DM me over on Instagram and let's chat! https://instagram.com/annesamoilov
