You can follow your heart for change in your life and restructure whatever is currently not working. Life and business are never straightforward or linear, it is whatever you make of it though.
The rules of business say that you need to niche down but
- What if being a multi-passionate introverted empath is exactly your niche?
- What if you, just the way you are, is totally part of your niche and your community?
- What if building a product and a service-based business is your thing?
And here’s the thing, I didn’t want to just be a coach. I want to show and tell, to teach, to motivate you into action and ok a small part even inspires you – without sacrificing what I stood for, belief in and mostly myself.
But first I needed to figure out what the heck that all meant for my own life and my own business. It needed to forge my own path and that meant giving myself permission to dream and to ask myself the question:
What if I couldn’t fail, what would I do every day of my life?
And my answer was: all the things.
Well, all the things at the same time, that wasn’t going to happen. But developing time management skills, focusing on what did matter to me and tuning out the noise that was going to be the key for me.
Until I gave myself permission to forge my own path and stopped listening to all the people, I was floundering around wondering what the heck I was going to do every single day. And let me tell you, that time of my life sucked donkey balls.
I was bored out of my freaking mind. And here’s the thing, I have about a gazillion ideas all the time – all that can move me forward, challenge me and lead me to personal and business growth. And 7 times out of 10 I take immediate action on it, imperfectly and without fear.
I rebel the notion I need to have a “proper” launch of things very much the same that I struggle with “niching” – and let me be clear, I am not against either of those, however, they do not work for me – and if there is something I learned by following my dreams and focusing on my goals, you don’t have to follow someone else’s blueprint.
With that said, I see and hear a lot of people talk about the thing they are going to do one day.
And let me tell you, that isn’t how things work. But if you follow your heart, your inspiration, your ideas and take action, life can look completely different in a matter of weeks.
Had I waited for one day or the perfect moment, then
- the Rebels Den would still be in question
- my wood-burning blog would still not exist (totally contradicting the niching bit haha)
- I wouldn’t be interviewing the bands I go see at our local shows
- I wouldn’t be sponsoring Metal In The Mountains
- I wouldn’t have joined a soccer team 3 years ago
