Step 4: Test Out Your Ideas
I was really feeling good after I secured my first client. I knew my skills were valuable and that there was a market for what I had to offer. However, I still had some doubt. I had success in my own life, but I needed to make sure my approach worked on other people.
Proof Of Concept
You have to test out your ideas before you start charging people for your product or services if you want o stay in business or keep earning money. In the business world this is called PROOF OF CONCEPT.
In my case I didn’t realize it, but I had a track record and proof that my ideas worked. In fact, I shared my track record on social media for years. Those who followed me could physically see what I had achieved and saw proof of it. In the business world, this is called SOCIAL PROOF. Social proof is things like testimonials, photos, recommendations and referrals.
Here’s the thing, I didn’t know my worth back in the day so I did everything for FREE!!! Can you relate to that? Hopefully, after taking this course, you will put a value on your products and services. But for now, I want to show you how to test out your idea without charging people.
You can offer PRO BONO services (free services) to an ideal client to test out your ideas, and most importantly to get RESULTS. You will learn what you need to tweak. You could also charge for your services at this stage, too. That’s even better.
Step 4: Action Item

Today I want you to think of ways that you can TEST OUT YOUR IDEAS. You can do PRO BONO work or charge a small fee to ideal clients. LISTEN, GET FEEDBACK, GET RESULTS AND TWEAK.
Most importantly be sure to get SOCIAL PROOF, i.e. testimonials, recommendations and pictures of you in action with clients. Social proof and results go a long way!!! In fact, it will make it easier for you to get more clients.
By the end of this week you will start building your credibility which will increase your confidence and chances of earning money.
