As I was preparing for our recent Small Business Week celebration, I realized this was yet another manifestation of one of my visions. I regularly schedule time to find an inspirational place (beach, woods, park, my favorite chair in my home, my backyard) and journal my dreams and my vision for where I want to be, what I want to do … my WHY.
When I was rebranding and planning my expansion, I journaled extensively: very detailed descriptions of what the facilities would look like, what and who would be in them, the expressions on people’s faces, the sounds (laughter), the effect we would have on our communities, and so much more.
As I headed to the podium to kick off our SBW event, I realized in a deja-vu kind of way, this was exactly where I was meant to be and yet another vision of mine had come to life.
- I believe companies should be a force for good.
- I believe we are meant to teach what we know.
- I believe in the power of collaboration.
I fully rebranded the company based on these beliefs. I have seen this power fuel the success of our clients and our community, and our SBW Event embodied all of these beliefs.
We had a small army of highly regarded experts, organizations, institutions and the entire C3 staff working toward a common goal: share what they know to help others to be more successful. This is my dream, this is my legacy, it might even be my Higher calling.
I invite you to do the same.
Get clear on your WHY, and it’s never just money. As Simon Sinek says, money is a result. Build a plan. Be a thought leader. Practice being a go-giver. Roll everything into a sustainable, focused behavior plan and then just do it … day in and day out, step closer toward creating the life of your dreams.
I want to thank each and every one of you for helping me to realize, once again, I am exactly where I am supposed to be and I feel insanely blessed.
Join me on the journey…
