Every day I work with entrepreneurs who are living with doubt, frustration and fear. Searching for a way to re-connect with their initial passion, to bring balance and prosperity back to their lives, so that true success is no longer ‘some day’.
The desire to make a difference, to live from purpose keeps you going, but there’s much anxiety about all there is to do, when there is already no time to do what’s right in front of you. It’s easy to forget that the energy invested in defining the “Soul of your Brand” is vital. Doing so will then guide your business in an entirely different manner.
Creating a congruent model, that’s aligned with you, your values AND builds a thriving business can be challenging. Besides, some industries are changing so quickly, it’s even more of a puzzle. You are truly the only one on earth that offers what you do. You’re constantly wondering: ‘How do I ‘package’ this and get it out there?’
