Start doing what you are doing with modesty and hard work. I wrote my blog for a year or so before I got a successful submission to some of the larger publications. They want to see a good track record, that you are not just someone who is impulsive and want to be "famous" through their platform, but someone who continues to do what one does.
As I gained more traction with my work, I started to get some invitations for interviews or quotes - and I think it is important to know what the journalist or interviewer needs and wants from you.
Don't go into a long speech about oneself, but think about what is helpful for them in their article or interviews, and give them the direct, short answer, so they do not have to do much editing.
Who is your target audience? How do you find your clients?
Targeting adults who have forgotten to play, particularly executives in the workplace. At the moment I find my clients by word of mouth, and already I cannot handle all the projects, so I am looking to build a team and also expand into online offerings. Also, I was surprised, a large corporate client found me on LinkedIn by searching for mental health!
What is your secret to keeping peace of mind and clarity when running your consultancy and coaching clients?
Believing in my purpose and mission: To make the world mentally health.
Making life bearable and playful is what I have lived and breathed through, my own life depended on it when I was suicidal and depressed. So I believe in the good of it and that there is value in it. When I start to doubt myself, I go back to my mission, i.e. the "why" am I doing what I'm doing, and I find peace of mind again.
But don't get me wrong, there are times of really bad self-doubt and I sink into the low cycles, which I allow myself to fully experience because I think those are also messages to me
