It’s easy to see building a business as a race to the finish line. The finish line being something like lots of reliable clients and well attended sessions.
There are many snake-oil salesmen offering to show you the shortcuts and fastest ways to get there.
But crossing the finish line of a marathon is only meaningful because of the 42kms of steps taken to get there. If you took a shortcut or had a cab drive you it would take away that meaning. It would be hollow.
Likewise, part of what makes your business mean so much is the pitfalls and struggles on journey to where you want to go. My friend calls it building a slow-iness, not a busy-ness.
Take your time, enjoy it, experience it. It will be more meaningful in the end.
