Day Nine: Business Sense & Action
I am in transition. I am creating.
I am excited.
And I am feeling a lack of knowledge which creates a pause in forward movement which creates a feeling of uncertainty which creates stress. Been there before?
Here is the deal. I have great business ideas - around my personal brand, around new ventures, around video concepts. I speak with my friends about them and I get excited and we plan and scheme. And then, a road block and boom, idea is paused. Kind of like a firework. A big burst of color, loud noise, then smoke that drifts into nothing.
Instead of asking myself over and over again WHY I do this firework pattern and wallow in complaint, I asked myself WHAT can I get up to rock the choice, get in action and make it happen.
So today, I kicked the not-knowing and fear of failure to the curb, I stopped waiting for someone to hand me the right book, tell me what to write or do it for me. And do you know what I did? I signed up for a Business Workshop in Simi Valley CA. Oh yes, it is this weekend. Hello one hour drive at 7am on a Saturday! I am going to wear my black rimmed glasses, geek out and take loads of notes. And I also sent in a request for 1:1 business mentor-ship via a rad company my biz developer friend recommended called SCORE.
Time to get the knowledge I want to create not only for the idea(s) I want to develop + launch, but also learn new tactics to share with friends, clients and in future workshops. As Elvis said, 'a little less conversation, a little more action bab-ay'! Boom!
