In this episode of Your Biz, Your Rules, I’m interviewing PR whizz and newly published author, Kerri Walker.
The key takeaways:
💛 People can tailor their approach to PR and marketing based on their personality type. There are so many introverts out there who run amazing businesses but shy away from all of the marketing stuff because it seems too shiny, too salesy, too sociable. Go easy on yourself and take the time to figure out what works for you.
💛 Don’t do things that make you feel really uncomfortable because it’s not worth it. It’s just not worth the energy and the time that you waste worrying about it. Just do things that you are really, really good at, or really love doing, and that you know is going to get in front of your ideal clients and people that you want to reach out to.
💛 Getting away from the norm can really boost your creativity. As can designing a really beautiful “creation” ritual. Put on your comfiest clothes, make you tastiest tea, listen to your favourite album… making your writing time a real treat.
💛 It’s not always easy to relax and switch off, but it’s really important to do. You need to push yourself to do that. It’s so easy to just slide into doing work or doing something, doing the busy work. It’s really easy to just let that occupy all of your time. It’s not so easy to take time for yourself, but that’s what you need to do. This is just as important as getting the clients and making the money. You need to be healthy and to be able to serve and find those clients.
