Thanks to one of the members of our Savvy Nurse Writer members for asking us this question: what are the traits of a six-figure writer vs. a beginner?
I’ve decided to turn this question into a podcast so that you can’t only hear the traits but will also learn how to implement them in your own business in order to become the six-figure earner that you deserve to be.
A six-figure writer is efficient in time management.
They know how to prioritize and figure out their days to get the time directed efficiently. To get started with this, you can start to monitor your days. Look at each hour of your day to start doing a time assessment from what you’re doing during those times.
Around 3-4 working days, go back and see where you can tweak things to become more efficient as possible. I’d love to mention that my favorite time strategy that has never gone away and I always use is my hours of power. It is the time of the day when I got the chance to get the work done. If you want to learn more about doing this, I will be doing another episode tackling this strategy.
In the meantime, you can read more about what you can do with 1 hour of power in my previous blog post!
They prioritize tasks
It is when you know what task needs your attention the SOONEST. I really like the method that Rocky Lalvani does. He was our guest in episode 97. Throughout his day, he focuses in client services, networking, and then sales. The pattern starts from doing client works first and then move to other areas to bring in more business.
They are motivated and self-directed
Running a business by yourself has to be self-driven. Good habits create goal achievement. Whatever good habits you do every day can help you become motivated and self-directed to become a 6-figure writer.
Six-figure writers do not think of themselves as hobbyists.
Think of yourself as a business owner. One of the parts of growing a business is changing your mindset. You are thinking of an income-generating business, not a self-serving hobby. There is nothing wrong with having a hobby. But when you are trying to build a business, you need to think of it as a business.
