Ok, scrumptious ones … it’s time this goddess came clean.
Watch this … I know it’s a bit longer than usual, but there are some important lessons buried within!
Sooo … what can YOU take away from my rather waffle-y confession?
- Transparency and Honesty in marketing is EVERYTHING!If you have something to hide, it’ll cramp your creativity and stifle your abundance.Enough said!
- Your Mess can be Your Message!As I proved when I ‘came out’ on my dismal MLM track record in my Great Quitting, when you admit to having been in a hole, and share how you’re getting out of it, that becomes a powerful message.There are so many folk out there in the very same situation as you’ve been in.They’re hungry for hope and leadership, and YOU could give that to them.You could be their hero, if you’ll just be YOU!
- There’s nothing ‘wrong’ with having a job while you’re building your empire!Actually, quite the opposite, your job can fund your transition from employee to entrepreneur, although I will admit that it takes some extra work and awareness, and maybe a “vaccination“!What IS wrong is demeaning your employment (like referring to it as a J.O.B, aka just over broke) and acting as if it’s not important in the grand scheme of things.This goddess gets rather steamed up on this topic, can you tell?!
- Don’t Worry About The Cursed ‘Hows’When I left Starbucks to work online, I never dreamed I would discover that without regular face-to-face contact, I would wither away like an under-watered houseplant.I’d found my Passion and my Niche, and I was blinkeredly focused on finding that place where all my wannabe-goddesses hung out. I thought about it daily, envisioning creating a whole army of goddesses whose empowerment and ‘live-life-on-my-own-terms’ attitude would slowly change the world.Quite frankly, I didn’t know ‘How’ I was going to find them.I thought it was online ~ you know, Facebook, YouTube, Google+.But it wasn’t online at all.
It turns out it was at the mall!
In his book, “Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams“, (mind blowing and highly recommended), Mike Dooley talks about the Cursed Hows, and how trying to work out the mechanics of HOW your vision will manifest will basically handcuff the Universe and drastically delay the realization of what you wish for.
How right he was!
I hadn’t been focusing on allowing, I might not have gone to the mall that day, and mentioned my social claustrophobia to the VS manager, and I would never have ended up in precisely the place I needed to be to finally clarify and streamline my message and mission.
There’s so much more to share on this topic, scrumptious ones, but this post is already longer than planned so I’ll save it for another day.
But I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Have you bridged the ’employee to entrepreneur’ gap?
Do you work retail but with you didn’t?
Do you love your job and hate that marketers poopoo those who are employed?
Do you think there’s a LIMIT to authenticity? ie it’s ok to NOT tell everyone absolutely everything about your life?
Please comment below, dear heart – you know how I love to chat to you all.
And if you know of any goddesses who are currently employed but would love to work for themselves,
please pass this on.
That would be wonderful!
Till next time, scrumptious ones.
