Being an entrepreneur is all about creating something that the world needs. As an entrepreneur, a question I ask myself all the time (thank you James Wedmore) is: “What can I do that no one else does?” The answers to that question tell you where your business has the most value.
I’ve actually been asking a lot of questions lately: I’m asking questions to myself, to others, and into the void of the Universe. One of the questions has been: “Hey! Where’s the vulnerability at?” Y’all, I have been craving some depth in my business life. I want real talk from folks doing things that are relevant to what I’m doing. I don’t want the shiny Instagram success story where everything turns out perfect, I want the nitty-gritty of what it felt like while you were getting there! Then, it occurred to me: If I’m not seeing this, does that mean that I’m avoiding this public act of vulnerability too?
It’s been a minute since we had a solo episode on this podcast, a “Sarah’s Soliloquy,” if you will. It seems like, if I am wanting people to be real about big business transformation, the uncertainty of decision making, and the things that drive us to take risks and imagine our lives differently, then I should probably show up and do it!
So, in this episode, I talk. I talk about the things that pushed me into changing the way I structured my business. I talk about shifting from direct service and into community building. I talk about bringing on new people and creating a team, instead of a One Woman Show. I talk about how I got my creativity back after a lot of burn out. I talk about what I am hoping for and working toward and where I am now.
I hope you’ll join me this week, not only for insight into the big things I’m learning right now (I narrowed it down to 3 today!) but also in sharing your own Behind the Scenes with the world that is hungry for authenticity and shared experience. I invite you to post and tag me in your own stories of growth, learning, trial and error, success and failure. Let’s all be in this together.
