A Good One

Thursday, February 02, 2012

I first saw this quote on one of my college graduation cards. And it was the very thing I needed to hear.  

Whenever I feel that same black cloud of uncertainty, a what-the-heck-am-I-doing kind of urgency...I think on this quote. As a teacher, mom, friend, and now business gal I want to be good at what I'm doing.  Using that as the standard helps me refocus and shines a bit of clarity. 

In the matters of business,  I think we creative entrepreneurs really need this sort of reminder. It's so easy to get lost in the mire of what others are doing, what we could be doing, and maybe even what's next. We can spread ourselves so thin....and miss the chance to be good.

I've been so fortunate to also work as a business coach, officially now for a few months, and I most love getting to know people behind the brands. Their talents, their story. And more often than not, what businesses need to help guide them in the right direction, is a little nudge (sometimes a push) to remember what they are instead of focusing on what they are not

When we focus on this....being whatever we are...we can really jump in with all our hearts and energy and talent to do it well. 

Tell me, who is a good one you know?  (maybe it's even you!)

This is so true Allisa & I deal with this all the time. I don't know many people that don't with running an online biz. There's so much info out there about what you should be doing & what you shouldn't be doing, it's overwhelming.

While it's smart to keep up with trends or even your competition, it's definitely a hindrance to focus on it too much. I think knowing what you want to be & do comes first & then sticking with it & making that show up in everything you touch. Being authentic & doing things that work for you. Things that feel right whether others online say it's the best way or not.

Thanks for this post! I love the quote & I'll definitely be sharing it!
