In the past few days, I’ve had two different people reach out to me. Both of them were asking for advice on starting their own businesses.
My reply to them?
“Go for it.”
Life, technology, and business are changing rapidly. It is my sincere belief that being an entrepreneur (or an intra-preneur in a large organization) is the surest path towards freedom and happiness.
Therefore, today’s note is all about “G” — go go go!
Seth Godin is an author and big thinker (and one of my heroes). He is a GO guy. His big message is “just ship it already” and by that he means:
- Do something different and share it with your tribe
- Write and share it with the world
- Create something and get it into the hands of those who need it
- Start a business and let everyone know it
- Learn something new. Then find the tribe who digs it and start a conversation.
- Figure out who you want to serve and do it
In other words: GO!
Invest in yourself by using a coach or hiring a consultant. Go back to school or get additional training if you need it. Start a business. Write the book. Make the app. Schedule a volunteer vacation. Whatever it is your soul is quietly (or loudly, in my case) imploring you to do…GO DO THAT.
And I’m here to help you get unstuck. To wade into the resistance (hat tip again to Seth Godin). To create the path with you. To help you move in to right action. And to hold you accountable when the fear and doubt step up (and inevitably it will).
What do you want in life? I mean really, really, really want?
When you’re ready, I’d love to show how to get that. GO!
Make some room,
P.S. I’m offering two-hour Make Some Room Rendezvous sessions through the end of the year. The investment is a mere $350 (and it goes up to $500 on January 1, 2014).
Your dreams are priceless – honor them.
