I want to share with you my chat with Avani Miryala of Beyond the Status Quo podcast.
How do I know Avani Miryala?
Avani Miryala is a UX designer who specialized in the Cryptocurrency space. She’s the host of Beyond the Status Quo podcast.
On this episode, we discuss the reasons why finding your freelance niche can increase your revenue, strengthen your relationships with clients and create a smoother funnel for recurring business.
We connected on Instagram and as we began chatting in comments and on DM, when she told me the name of her podcast and invited me to come on, I had no choice. It was a no brainer. If anything, I had to be a part of anything named Beyond the Status Quo.
In this episode, I had a chance to talk about the following:
How to find your niche
In case you don’t want to read the rest of this, you can check out the full episode for all the details.
In the episode, I shared a variety of things including:
- Strategies for finding your freelance niche and methods for developing your specialty
- How to introduce your niche to your network and the price tag that comes along with it
- Best practices for circumventing negative emotions attached to client and revenue ‘FOMO’
Specifically, I talk about tips for gracefully declining work that does not fall under your scope of work.
I think that this is an important part of the process. Once you figure out what niche to go for, it’s a matter of not falling back into bad habits.
Once you draw that line in the sand for your business, anyone that’s defined as not a great client should be referred elsewhere.
Definitely go check it out.
