It’s time to come out. I haven't been able to come to grips with my new identity, but it's time I share so I can find my community.
It's been years of trying and failing. I kept going back to my old ways.
I was being stubborn or at least going with what was familiar to me.
No matter how many times I was offered an alternative, I wouldn't even consider it.
And then, I met Polar Raspberry Lime Seltzer and it was a game changer.
That led to experimenting with other Polar flavors.
I'm still mostly a Raspberry Lime kind of guy, but recently I was in a supermarket and I was thirsty. What did I buy?
Diet Coke – my old friend?
A zillion other sugary options?
Nope. I got a can of Polar Blueberry Lemonade Seltzer.
And it was delicious.
I can't believe I'm even saying this.
But I had to share because now when I’m out to eat, I no longer order my usual glass of Diet Coke, I instead get a glass of…
Sparkling water with a lime – what!??
So now, I know it's real. I'm a… seltzer drinker.
I don't know how to feel about this.
Have you recently been converted?
Do you remember those early days when you still automatically reached for Diet Coke and shook your head no when offered sparkling water?
Is this change permanent? Will I once again find the idea of seltzer repugnant?
I’m only half kidding – I know that a small change like this is going to have enormous health benefits.
That got me thinking, what small change have I been resisting that would help me succeed in business?
Your Challenge For This Week:
What small shift could you make so you were better able to take advantage of the many opportunities and possibilities in the world around you?
What have you been automatically saying no to for years that might now be something worth trying?
Try it out and let me know what happens.
Business Growth Strategist & Business Coach
As a relationship-based business growth strategist, I work directly with a limited number of self-employed professionals, aka solopreneurs.
WHO YOU ARE:
You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you’re running out of time.
The reason options are overwhelming is that you’re looking at them as a series of disconnected steps, when to make the most of your time, you need a strategy that connects only the most important and highest impact ones.
You know that if you try to do everything, you’ll accomplish nothing. This means, to achieve your goal, you have to invest in a strategy to put time on your side.
As a relationship-based business growth strategist, I will work with you to design a year-long plan that consists of three 12-week sprints, each followed by 4 weeks of reflection/assessment, rejuvenation/vacation, and strategic planning. This will allow you to sequence your goals, create momentum, and leverage your limited time.
We can build your plan through a half-day strategy session, a coaching engagement, or a mastermind program.
These are not right for everyone; they’re personalized offerings and are priced accordingly.
