I think many of you can tell by now that I’m on a bit of a personal journey with my professional life. I’ve gone all in on my business and my passion to help other people with their growth and development. Along the way I’m building a brand.
And while, I wish I had it all figured out and could hand everyone this finished product that looked amazing and professional – that isn’t what is going to happen. It is a journey. A journey that I’ve vacillated back and forth on how much to show.
- Do people want to know how the sausage is made?
- Do they want to be part of that journey along the way and see how my brand gets built?
- Do they want to be a part of the building?
I don’t know the answers to those questions. I’ve bounced around as I’ve worked on finding my comfort zone in how much to share.
I think I’ve made a decision to open up more. To share my vulnerability. To open up about my mistakes along the way. To let you all in.
Wow, you can’t see it on your end as you read these words, but that is hard to say. I’ve spent so much of my life keeping carefully drawn walls up around different parts of my life. Recently, I sent out a post asking for help and that was a start of this journey. This post continues that path. And still, I cannot really articulate how scary that is to me.
My plan is to continue to share my content on self development. That content is a good start for anyone beginning their developmental journey. It sets the stage. And I think it important to give it away.
Because I want to help. That is my primary purpose. I have a story to tell. I have a perspective that comes a bit from outside the norm. My lens is a bit skewed and that is what helps me come up with novel ideas and solutions. To see the world and what we can do together in a unique way.
So, here I will not only be sharing my developmental competency articles, I will also be sharing my thoughts, my stories, and a whole lot more about me. And I know that for as alone and different as I feel, I know that there are others out there that must be able to relate.
I hope that you will continue to come along for the journey. You can be a casual observer, or you can jump in and participate. I learn from others. I grow from my network. And what you’ve seen so far is nothing compared to what we will do over the next few months.
Like, and comment, send an email. Just say hi. Let me know that I reached you.
I want to hear from you. You are the reason I do what I do.
