Viking Saga #2 – How To Grow A Viking Beard

I had to turn to some experts to figure out how to grow a beard but it turns out there’s, like, an entire process to follow.  

From planning and patience to the nitty-gritty like shaving the perimeter, using supplements to support your efforts, trimming it as it grows, and just plain taking care of the hair.

When you’re in the planning stages of growing your beard, you’re looking for what’s going to suit your face the best.  Keeping the perimeter looking just right, you need to maintain the cheek area and neckline. 

As it’s growing, you’re trying to avoid looking like Robin Williams just popped out of Jumanji after 30 years.

Part #2 – How To Grow A Viking Beard

It’s no different than when you’re starting a business or getting ready to make a new offer or completely pivoting during COVID-19.

When you’re in the planning stages you have to consider not only your abilities but what really lights you up and what you have room to offer.  There’s nothing worse than watching the clients pour in and not having the bandwidth to handle them all. 

Trust me.  Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.  

If you’ve got a lot of young kids at home then taking on clients that are going to need you to work during “regular” business hours is going to lead to a lot of problems.

But it doesn’t stop there.  When you launch, always take stock and measure how things are going.  If you’re running ads, you need to know which ones are performing the best so that you can kill the weak ones.  

If people aren’t responding to your offer you have to be willing to rework it – you might need to tweak the offer, maybe the copy that you use, maybe the pricing.  Maybe you have to kill it completely.  


No business yet?  Start writing down all of the things that you’re good at doing, what you enjoy doing, and put a star next to the things that you think your audience is going to need the most.  

Already in business?  Write down all of the things you offer and scratch off anything that you hate doing.  Put a star next to the things that your customers ask you for most often.  If there are services or offers that you haven’t sold in the past 3-6 months, highlight those on your page.
