Sick and tired of being sick and tired of your job? You’ve come to the right place!
Aw Snap! was inspired by life. I have always wanted to be my own boss. For one reason or another, however, I was stuck in a succession of dead-end jobs for about fifteen years. The titles changed, nothing else did.
Yearning to finally claim my freedom, at the beginning of 2013, I decided to quit the rat race once and for all and start my marketing & copywriting business.
It took me approximately seven months to go from decision to D-Day. I was so committed to my new life that I did everything within my power to transition successfully. I would schedule phone calls prior to going to work in the morning, at lunchtime, or after hours.
My car soon turned into a mobile office. I even set my alarm clock in the early hours of the morning to reach out to potential clients in Europe (time difference helped) prior to starting my “real” workday. I spent hours researching, talking to people, testing and tweaking. I got on a plane and went to a trade show out of state. I had no contacts. I went booth by booth introducing myself. I took a risk and it worked: I secured my first client. From there on, I worked my way up my own business.
Little did I know, however, that I was not only changing my life, but also having an impact on the lives of those around me. Friends and acquaintances started reaching out by email, Skype or phone, telling me I was an inspiration to them. I was a real person who had quit her job and started a successful business. And they all had one question for me: how did you actually do it? The question was not philosophical but very real. They wanted to know how you get started, what needs to happen, how you get clients, how you invoice them, how, how, how.
At that point, I decided to put all the practical knowledge that I gained while starting my own business and the marketing expertise I acquired through the years of hard work and education to good use and launched Aw Snap! But how do I actually quit my job and start my business? The premise is simple: it is a guide by an entrepreneur for an entrepreneur. No fluff, just real answers.
There is a method to the madness, and I have broken it down to 7 simple steps. The life you always dreamed of is attainable, and you know it.
You just need to snap into action.
