How can you best start attracting clients?
Hi, I've gained some experience with workshops but still have a lot to learn. I want to start with a low-threshold approach with clients. Think of remote workshops of up to 2 hours. Any ideas on how to best attract clients for workshops?

I have found success in posting 'free', high-quality graphics and materials on LinkedIn that generates loads of traffic. By building this 'reputation' on that platform my own reach has grown organically. If I have developed 'trust' then I can post other things about working with small groups or organizations. People where your resources are important tend to reach out either in comments to posts or in DMs. This has help me attract leads for various events...
How do you fight procrastination ?
Do you ever procrastinate? 😴 Procrastination, the scourge that prevents us from moving forward and generates stress, but can be effectively combated with simple, concrete facilitation techniques. 1 Set SMART objectives: Specific: precise and concrete. Measurable: quantifiable and assessable. Achievable: realistic and ambitious. Relevant: taking into account your resources and constraints. Time-based: setting a clear deadline. 2 Break tasks down into small steps: Break colossal projects down into more digestible, less daunting steps. 3 Prioritize and organize: Identify essential and urgent tasks, schedule them and stick to your agenda. 4 Eliminate distractions: Isolate yourself in a quiet environment and put your phone on silent mode. 5 Reward your progress: Celebrate each milestone to boost your motivation. 6 Focus on the here and now: Don't get lost in negative thoughts or "what ifs". 7 Forgive failures: Accept setbacks and start again with determination. What are your anti-procrastination tips? 😅

Actually, the more I read about creatives and how 'downtime' really isn't being lazy, but there is value in doing nothing and ruminating on various things. However, stuff needs to get done! You eat an elephant one tiny piece at a time! Make the tasks into a game for yourself and celebrate getting things done by doing something you enjoy. I would also recommend checking out the book by Daniel Pink titled 'When'. It has changed my whole 'napping' technique! ;) https://www.danpink.com/books/when/
Workshop Gamification?
I was thinking today about how everyone loves gamification! Everything from hotel and airline points/miles, to micro-credentialing. So, I am curious if anyone has tried this sort of thing with their workshops? I know it would require a lot of upfront work, but I can see real value in it! Thoughts?

@Julie Cursi Great resources!
LSP
I am wondering if anyone here has had any success in integrating aspects of LSP (LEGO Serious Play) into their workshops? I have done it as an ice breaker as EVERYONE loves to play with little plastic building blocks!!!

@Rebecca Courtney I love 'build a duck'!
Prototyping
I am curious what sorts of 'prototypes' result from the workshops people run. I really also want to know sort of platforms groups use for modeling their prototypes (e.g. Miro, Figma, so on) and if you actually make physical models for your prototypes, what do you often use?
