The Struggle for Financial Stability

Running a business is hard. Are you struggling to make money despite your efforts? Burning through client payments, spending endless hours on social media – it’s a never-ending cycle. But why aren’t you making any money? Let’s dive into the three major mistakes designers make that hinder their success.

Identifying the Mistakes

1. Chasing the Wrong Dreams: Attending trade shows and staying informed is important, but it doesn’t guarantee success. Focus on making your business profitable.

2. The Overwhelm of Prompt Response: Promptly answering every call and email may seem like good customer service, but it can lead to feeling overwhelmed and unproductive. Manage your time efficiently and prioritize tasks.

3. The Social Media Burden: Constantly sharing job site photos and obsessing over viral posts may not be the best use of your time. Cultivate relationships with referral sources instead.
