Since registering as self-employed a few years ago, I have learnt a lot. Running a business, even if it is freelance writing and blogging, means that you need to create your brand and work hard to create success for it in everything you do. Thinking outside of the box for your business will keep your ideas fresh and ensure you are ahead of the game in your industry. These are three ways you can think outside of the box when it comes to your business.

Doodle for Creativity
When trying to solve a problem or come up with a new idea, it can be tempting to sit down at your desk or in a meeting and get serious, but this can actually be counterproductive. Doing an activity such as doodling encourages the use of the right side of your brain, which is responsible for creativity, so doing something ‘fun’ can actually help you tap into new, fresh ideas. The easiest way to implement this into your day to day running of the business? Have a plain notepad close to hand at all times and don’t be afraid to get doodling!
