We had my favorite bostonian Andreas Dietzel on our podcast talking about one of my favorite books. “Screw Work Let´s Play”. This is a Do-It-Yourself book that showed me the first steps towards doing what I love on a full time basis. One important secret is, as the cover says, “… and get paid for it”.
I needed to get paid well in order to put in the time and effort to do quality work. What did I do?
I found out what I really love doing. Helping good people with sales training. I found clients that needed that kind of help. And I put all my effort and time into helping them. You need you to put enough time and effort into the work with each customer to make a insanely great results. The only way it is possible to do this is to ask the right price.

It also includes saying no to the clients you can only help to solve 80% of the problem for. You cannot have too many customers either. If you want to know more, listen to the Bookcasting Podcast and you will get some of the answer to that question.
