As I work with service professionals, coaches and consultants to turn their practices into a more leveraged, high income business through workshops and seminars, I come across a few common misconceptions. Often these misconceptions can prevent people from putting on their own workshop and breaking through that income ceiling they have imposed on themselves by working one-on-one with their clients. Other times, it will not prevent a successful workshop, but it will make a difference of thousands of dollars. Do you suffer from any of these misconceptions?
I see myself moving effortlessly throughout the Art jamming Workshop day from home to my car at work in and out of various rooms and conversations flowing from one to the other effortlessly and with total confidence.
Adding overhead storage is a great way to maximize workspace and minimize clutter. Especially if you have some tools that you rarely use, overhead storage can keep those tools out of your way, but they are still readily available when you need them.
Santa could have anything he wants; he is the jolly fat man after all, but after seeing the sad state the elves’ Art jamming Workshop had fallen, Santa knew that there had to be a better, more durable material out there, a material that would look nice but be resilient to the fury of elves building toys all year round. He thought perhaps plastic would do the trick, but he soon realized that plastic melted easily. He thought about paper, but that would hold up at all. He tried wood, dirt, and pretty much anything else he could, until he finally found granite. Granite countertops are one of the most durable, resilient materials out there, and when the elves saw their new workshop, with newly installed granite countertops, they rejoice before quickly getting back to work.
Writing and publishing a book is not a get-rich quick scheme. Reid Tracy shared the cold hard facts. Every year traditional publishers add Art jamming new books to the market. Of the 80,000, only 300 produce sales over $50,000 per year. Comparatively, approximately 200,000 self-published books hit the market in a variety of formats including hard cover and eBooks and they generate even less in sales.
Is your room on the top floor of a six story building with no lift or in a windowless basement? Consider accessibility as well as ambiance when choosing your meeting space. Ideally a room on the ground or first floor with plenty of natural daylight. It will keep everyone perky and create a sense of space.
11. Simple and easy: keep your station clean and organized. Every day before you close up shop, make sure to sweep and vacuum your workshop. Keeping a tidy workstation will maximize efficiency. Make sure that all tools are cleaned and stored properly to avoid damage to the tools or to you. Keeping a clean workshop will minimize clutter, and it will be easier for you to see what you have.
