You Want to Make a Difference…
…but, don’t know where to start.
That Point in Your Life
You’ve hit a point in your life that you simply know it’s time to do more. To do something bigger and have a real impact beyond just your family. But, you haven’t got a freakin’ clue how to go about it.
You want your business to grow, so you can help more people. You want to reach more people, so you can earn a bigger income because you know that’ll ultimately help more people.
They Should You Write a Book
Someone tells you to write a book. It’ll open doors for you. It’ll give you credibility. It’ll make you stand out and get speaking gigs. You’ll gain new clients simply because you wrote it. Well, on some levels that can be true, but there is MUCH more to it than just writing one and throwing it out there.
Just yesterday I had a woman say to me, “I’ve had people tell me lately that I should write my life story.” I asked her, “What would be the intent of the book – the purpose? Who would it be for? What would be the benefit to them if they read it?” Sadly, she decided she had no idea and couldn’t possibly figure it out or write it.
Here’s the deal. In less than five minutes, I had a target audience for her and an angle for book. Yet, she still believed she couldn’t do it. Her BS got in her way. That’s why I’m so adamant about discovering your personal BS, revealing others’ BS that affects you and discovering your “blind strengths”, which is another aspect of your BS.
Don’t Let Fear and BS Stop You
Don’t let fear and BS stop you. When you’re feeling called, you should find those that can help you, coach you and support you. Then, you have to choose to step up to the plate and take your first swing – while your coach and support team do exactly that – coach you and support you.
There is no need to try and figure it out alone! Get the support you need. We’re women…that means we typically prefer a community to help support us in some fashion or another. So…get support and find that one coach that will meet your needs in a way that lights you up and helps you go after the dreams you’ve had on the backburner for too frickin’ long!
Here’s to creating more powerful women with fierce passion and grace,
