28 Nov How To Find Business Clarity In Life’s Clutter
We’re wrapping up 2017 and I’ve spent a lot of time clarifying my message. It’s that behind the scenes work that your audience doesn’t see, but they can feel. Once you’ve gotten the message right everything seems easier, from the first meeting to amazing results thereafter.
I’m not magical or possess any special powers, or believe that I’m better than anyone else.
I am self-studied and self-taught. This is my key. When I didn’t know how, I figured it out.
What am I passionate about?
People! I’ve been in the “people business” since 1989 when I started in the Human Resource field. My role was focused on securing employment for clients and assisting companies to find the right match for their teams. I’ve always said “my product is people”; it’s been my role to “pull them off the shelf” to employ them, empower, and lead them.
I stand for self-worth, independence, a strong attitude of belief and accomplishment and making a positive impact.
What sets me apart?
I’m not afraid! I am a visionary who can lead. I have deep interpersonal skills. All of this is enhanced by my experience, which guides me.
I took the courage to step out and make an impact in 2017 and with that all kinds of actions aligned, the team got bigger, the tasks larger, the clients more demanding and yet, I continued with my humble soul and stuck to my discipline strength and continued to do what I was being called to do; make an impact. Impact to me is pure authenticity, just being me and nothing else. Sticking to my guns, challenging myself further than I knew I had the potential for and showing up every day, even though setbacks that I did not see coming.
My book launch comes later than had anticipated because I was thrown another curve ball in the game of life this year. After multiple surgeries and 11 tumors removed from my body, I was feeling overwhelmed. It took a lot of mental strength, thinking I’d just throw in the towel and give it all up and just rest and heal my body. Every advisor and mentor I could muster to get myself in front of said, “that’s not you, that’s not the girl I know, the one who knows how to accept challenges and keep fighting the good fight”. So, I listened and allowed the experience to add to my wisdom and courage and kept on going.
This body of work that is coming out via book; The Making of a Maverick, Building Champions in Business and in Life with pre-sales happening now, is a testament to all that I believe in. People matter, self-worth matters, time matters and when it all aligns everything works. You could say I personally tested that theory, and yes, it works!
Again, I simply stuck to what I’ve learned; the valuable lesson by Earl Nightingale that I have honored for over a decade:
“One hour per day of study in your chosen field is all it takes. One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.” Earl Nightingale
This blog post by Mastin Kipp also resonates loudly for me too and I think you’ll also find value in it.
“Here’s what I want you to know: a portion of a blog by Mastin Kipp, Daily Love.
You were born to be happy, to be healthy, and to contribute to the world in a meaningful way. That’s what the Universe wishes for you — and expects of you.
You might be a manicurist. You might be a physical therapist. You might be a copywriter, a stand-up comedian, a yoga teacher or the director of a meditation center. No matter what you do, you have skills and abilities that can make other people’s lives better.
Now here’s the part that might be tough to hear:
It is your spiritual responsibility — as a human being — to bring your skills and abilities to as many people as you possibly can.
It is your spiritual responsibility to serve at the highest possible level, helping people, teaching people, inspiring people, at every possible opportunity.
If you hold back — by hiding, procrastinating, giving just 80% of your capacity at work, or refusing to market your products and services — you are essentially stealing from the people who need you most. “
That’s what it is.
Tough to hear — but true.
I know that whatever you are currently doing in the world — whether you’re a stay-at-home dad with a cooking blog on the side, or the CEO of a multi-national corporation — there is always a way to serve (and by extension: earn) more. “
I’m choosing not to rob anyone and stay true to what I was called to do this year; make an impact. I’m happy to say that preorders for the book are flowing in and I am beyond humbled and grateful for the army of people that believed in me while I also continued to believe in myself.
