A new Venture.
Have you ever started something new? Are you like me of the compulsive nature where you just think let’s give it a go and see what happens, or are you a meticulous planner? Neither is right or wrong, they both have their advantages and disadvantages. My husband is the meticulous planner; he spends hours poring over detail. It is sometimes difficult to get him to take action as he is caught up in possibilities. I find his execution often painfully slow by my standards, but the results are always fantastic, as he has considered every possibility and found good solutions. Whereas me; I plough straight on in there, excited by the initial idea, and then I come across the problems as I go. This has at times led me to major frustration and occasional heart ache. However things do happen!
So here I am just eight weeks into a new business venture, so why did I start? Have you ever noticed how things come together? One thought I had led to a conversation, which led to another conversation which lead to an idea, which led to a really strong feeling that I was doing exactly the right thing. So that was the easy bit! Then you start down the road and more ideas come, but so do the worries and the “what if’s” and the “how”. It takes a lot of courage to quiet the mind and say, it’s OK I can do this. The further on I go the more help and support seems to be coming my way.
I have that feeling of nervousness and insecurity that has haunted me throughout my business life, but it is what I have learnt in the last fourteen years that gives me the conviction that I have to carry out my plan. The more I talk to people the more I hear that I am not the only one that has doubts and insecurities. I am not the only one working out of a room at home, juggling it with all the other commitments in my life. But those fourteen years have been a journey of learning and discovery; I now know that I am good enough, that I can take risks and succeed. So I am really excited about this my new venture, my heart is singing with the knowledge that I can help and support lots more people through this website and my training. With the help of others I am ignoring the little voice on my shoulder placing the seeds of doubt. I am turning up the volume on my dreams to drown out the doubts.
If any of this speaks to you, you are in exactly the right place. I am here because I have chosen to learn and develop, I haven’t journeyed alone, and now I am here to join you for a little way on you journey, so you don’t have to go it alone either.
I would love to hear from you…drop me a line
