Wouldn’t it be great if you could just cam instead of having to deal with all that social media posting that comes with the business?
Yeah, it would be but stop dreaming!
No career gets anywhere without PROMOTION.
To compete, you have to suck it up and get the word out about your brand.
If you don’t hate shouting yourself out on the platforms 24/7 you’re ahead of the game. Most of us despise it. We’re artists! We want to concentrate on what we truly love… the performance, creating art, and connecting with fans.
But there’s no way around it. Either promote or die. So how do you commit (instead of procrastinating), to sitting your butt down at the computer every day and doing what you need to do to build your career?
One way is to set up a space that makes you EXCITED to work and get sh*t done.
Read below for a few game changers for your office that can take the edge off doing the business side of camming.
A Laptop Riser – If you’ve got a laptop instead of a desktop, you may not realize that you’re constantly craning your neck to look down – and that’s painful! Purchasing a riser will bring the computer to eye level and when you’re body doesn’t hurt you’ll be happier to show up to work. Make sure to find one that is the correct size for your computer.
A Good Water Bottle – You know you have to stay hydrated when sitting at the computer all day but that can be difficult if you don’t have a water bottle reminding you to drink. Treat yourself to one that makes you smile even if it’s a little more expensive.
A Fountain Pen – Nothing says class like signing hard copy documents with a fountain pen. Treat yourself! You’ll be surprised how really boring things like putting your John Hancock on insurance papers suddenly becomes thrilling.
Writing Gloves – These are so adorable you could find yourself getting excited to sit down and work on your computer just so you can put them on. For every day typing try these by Storiarts, for cold days, try Wristies.
Computer Glasses – Get thee to an eye doctor! If you find yourself having headaches, it could be that you’re needing specs for the screen. If your eyes aren’t happy you won’t be.
A To Do Pad – Take the overwhelm out of the things you need to finish by purchasing a cool calendar that you can write and cross things off (so satisfying) when you’ve completed them.
AirSquares – You are not going to want to go on Zoom and wear your AirPods if they’re grody. Get busy with some of these cleaners to get the gunk out!
Pick up some of these game changers for your office space and you’ll find promotion isn’t so bad when you’ve got all these cool things waiting for you.
