Integrity is a tricky thing sometimes. There is so much desire to grow, expand our incomes, and be of deeper service of the world. We can have criticism for each other, our practices, etc without it being an AFFRONT to sisterhood. We can have a point of view that varies from that of other coaches […]
Typically speaking, I’m not one to laud the eccentricities of famous folk. I’m more apt to laud the opinions and perceptions of that of the common human. The ones who have very real bills to pay, and fears about where the next dollar will come from. (I find this to be especially important when discussing […]
AKA “What the BLEEP was she thinking all these years?” See also: 2 years (in this iteration of coach/consultant/mentor), 5 programs, and a GAZILLION pricepoints later…. I started my business in 2013. It was a rough year for me to be starting, but it was out of necessity. I had just found out that […]
I’ve never done a year in review post before. Mostly because…I’ve never had a year to review for my business! This is officially the first, full year I’ve been around the interwebs as a business strategist and coach. And the truth is? I wasn’t planning on doing one. But I figured since 2014 was my […]
I spent the better part of February holding vigil in the ICU. The adventure (if you could call it that) started with a phone call from my mother, 5 minutes later I had a plane ticket. 10 hours later I was on an airplane. For 10 days I sat at her bedside, watching nurses make […]
Back in April of 2014, I had the joy and luck to be interviewed by Lila Simmons. I’ve had the download link forever, and yet…I avoided sending it out into the universe. It wasn’t that I didn’t love the conversation, but rather it was incredibly personal. But here it is! And I am stepping up […]
Someone recently called me a renegade, and I thought that was hysterical. I suddenly had this vision of myself in a Xena Warrior Princess battle outfit, shouting a shrill battle cry into the ether. I shared this vision, and we laughed outloud that maybe that SHOULD be my next press photo. “That isn’t what I […]
When I started this business a year ago, I called myself a ‘solopreneur’. In fact, I called myself that until just a few hours ago (as of writing this blog post). I found the word enticing, the idea that I was the sole business owner, and that I was ‘in it’ on my own. No more pesky people to manage, no more bosses that micromanaged my time and impeded on my genius. I was a free to roam ‘solopreneuer’–free to manage my time, travel, and have freedom. Nothing could stop me now.
I mean, using it seemed natural. There are hundreds of people who use it. Forbes uses it. There are over 230,000 hits when you google ‘solopreneur’
So despite its popularity, why did I cut ‘solo’ out of all my branding? My copy?
Because I’m not a ‘solopreneur’ and you’re not either.
Today I find myself in a less than cheerful mood, my tendency towards light slowly being overtaken by shadow. Dark seeps into corners, smiles turn flat. Being a wanderer, both by choice and by marriage means a great deal of excitement. Constant streams of new friends, old friends left behind, new places to discover, destruction […]
