Cracking open a fresh book, feeling the paper between your fingers and getting lost in a world that is not your own – there’s nothing quite like it. Curling up, slowing down and immersing your self in the words on a page. Possibilities, dreams, wonder and passion collide.
I often get asked what are my favourite life changing- world rocking- passion and purpose igniting- books by clients. So I thought I would compile a list of my favourite books that will do just that: rock your world, change your life and have you seeing differently. And with the holidays rapidly approaching – there’s no better time to dive into these pages.
It’s the one thing we don’t want others to see in us, but it’s the first thing we look for in others.
At times we shut down and shun vulnerability because we don’t want others to know that we don’t have it all together. All the time.
Being real, being raw, being authentic, laying bare your flaws and discovering your voice can have massive power. Standing in who you are, owning your strengths and weaknesses and accepting who you are in all your beautiful messy glory is an amazingly powerful habit to cultivate.
Most people have been raised to believe that vulnerability equals weakness. But it doesn’t. There is incredible strength and courage in vulnerability. We must live in the space of vulnerability.
So, I’ve been in business for a few years now. But, actually running my business, by myself, full time? I celebrated my first year as a full time #girlboss and solopreneur recently. It’s been a fun, interesting, challenging and amazing year. I have learnt so much and I wanted to share with you a few insights that I feel might be helpful to fellow solopreneurs out there or those looking to leap into their business full time.
I’m just going to come right out and say it.
I feel as if almost every plan I have made this year has changed, been re-routed and not really worked out like I initially anticipated. It’s caused bucket loads of frustration and drained much time and energy.
They say if you want to make God laugh – tell her your plans.
Needless to say she must be having a bit of a chuckle.
As a solopreneur, that is a one woman or man show running your own biz, doing your thing, there are moments where…. yeah.
Let’s get real. Like really real.
It’s all you.
It can be both liberating and frustrating as hell.
