I don’t wake up every morning thinking about branding or design or websites.
I wake up thinking about you, I think about my clients, I think about the ladies taking my workshops, I think about moms trying to stay sane while building businesses and raising their kids. I think about the questions you are going to ask me about your business and how I can give the best answer to those questions.
I think about how to get you to see yourself as the wonderful creative person that you are.
I think about how to help you get the courage you need to take the steps you need to take in your business.
For so long I was really striving to figure out how to explain that what I like to do best is help women.
I kept asking myself …
Is giving someone a kind word or lifting someone up when I see that they need it, good enough. Is it worth it? Does that connection with just one person make a difference in the world? Or does it need to be bigger? Is helping women create their businesses big enough? What is the “something bigger” that I’m supposed to be doing?
But in the last year I’ve realized that it doesn’t matter what I’m doing. I could be creating websites, designing magazines, teaching workshops, or cooking dinner, and this is serving women with the skills I have now.
I’m going to grow. I’m going to keep coming into my own and I don’t know exactly what that looks like. I only know that at the core, whatever it is that I’m doing will be of service to women. It might be through philanthropy, it might be through the book I’m writing, it might simply be me being the best mom I can be to my kids.
I’ve quit worrying about what the big work is and when I’ll get to it. This is the big work.
If you ask for help I’ll do what I can with the skills I have now, as the woman I am today. I will give you my time, my energy, my brain in the form of workshops and consulting and encouragement of all kinds.
Helping women is what I was put on this earth to do.
As Sarah Yost would say it’s my holy work, my sacred work.
So what is your holy work, your sacred work and how can I help you do more of that?
