Can I be transparent for a moment?
Wait..See. Thats my problem. My inclination to always ask for permission before I speak my mind. My inclination to brace my audience before I go on a rant. Im done asking for permission. Im done settling. Im done.
For the past year, I have been on an entrepreneur journey. More downs than up. More no’s then yes’. More lows than highs. But that’s what a journey is right? I thought that if I stayed the course and took what I knew and made a profit then I would be fulfilled. The stars would align. I would have more than I could handle and life would be good.
I spent more time trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and everyone else was doing right. I kept trying to silence that voice that kept calling me back to the place where it all started. My writing.
Let me tell you. Dont EVER try and block that voice. It will keep nagging you. It will keep you up at night. Listen to that voice.
Dont get me wrong. I love what I do. I help businesses find their voice, market their products and connect with their audience on more than just a business to consumer level. But it comes a point when you notice that you’re doing alot of things to build someone’s business but you’re neglecting your own. I got to that point.
I would check my stats everyday and notice that people were still reading my old ass content. My inbox started to fill with emails from people who wanted me to guest blog on their site!
Why me!? Have you looked at my site lately? Are you sure you have the right person?
But they did have the right person. They knew it and I know it too! Sometimes we get so caught up with trying to go with the flow when all that God wants us to do is listen.
Im not promising anything with this site. You wont come here and get one niche of content. You may not get anything at all for weeks but I have made a promise to myself to at least make an effort here. My passion deserves an effort.
