Did you know it’s possible to create a business around just being you and the things you are most passionate about?
I remember when my teachers asked me to think about what I might want to study when going to university, because they told us, "you’re going to be studying for a long time, you should choose something that you're really interested in".
At the time, little did I realise, it would be close but not quite close enough.
I studied journalism, public and media relations thinking that because I loved English and writing that would be the right degree for me.
Now, when I look back I can see how flawed that whole process is. But because I have that degree, I can also draw upon everything I learnt.
Nothing in your background or your past is a waste.
It was all leading you to this place.
It was building you toward what you really want.
The difference now is that you are thinking more about what you really want against a background of that wasn’t really what I wanted.
You’ve just got to make the fundamental shift which is less thinking about what you don’t really want and more manifesting what you really want.
Along this journey, what I have appreciated the most, is getting out of my comfort zone, and in doing so I have learnt a lot about what is me and what is not me.
By letting go of the parts of me that diminish my own listening of myself, I have come to trust myself and tell myself that "yes, you can have what you really want, through finding yourself".
Being myself and making money from being myself - how exactly is this possible?
Let me tell you how. Your journey is unique. When you get really clear on who you are, your purpose in life, everything starts to materialise.
The more you work on you, the more you get to become much more insightful and recognise what is intuition and what is not.
At the same time you also need a platform to take action, a platform to learn, a platform to grow, a platform to share your strengths and skillsets, just as you are, right now.
The who that you are right now has a bucket load of value to provide. You could be someone who is already in a work or business environment delivering coaching to grow the people you are leading. You could be someone who is so inspired to make a difference in your communities, you are already up to stuff creating projects, collaborating with the people in your life. You want more time to do the things you love, and less time doing the things you don't love.
Learning is the fundamental foundation of all organisations and businesses. If you’re not someone who is great at learning, you have to be someone who learns through teaching others, because one way or another, we are always learning. It's inescapable, learning gives us access to almost anything and everything we desire.
My kids are learning sign language, my sister is learning swing dance, my brother learns to draw, my dad learns guitar, and my mum and I are learning the art of creating an online business from scratch, monetising our passions through digital and affiliate marketing.
The skill of passing on the learning is what makes you a leader. This skillset is exactly the reason you will go on to be able to create a business and much more around just being you.
Start here start now.
