If you’re like so many new leaders and new entrepreneurs, you’re probably plugging away at it. Every day pursuing your passion-fueled small business or seeking inspiration to continue to climb the corporate ladder of success. This kind of wanting, and frustration when the results don’t pan out as you’d hoped for, can be exhausting, and heart-breaking.
So how do you find real-life know how, break-through skills, and true stories? You want the real stuff, the goods that will enable you to continue to pay the bills, grow your team, gain momentum in your career; or nurture your side hustle? All while you’re waiting for all of your success goals to actually happen.
I’ve been there. Both as a new leader in the corporate world and more recently as a new entrepreneur who launched an encore career. In both situations it was daunting. Learning how to lead, influence, attract great talent, join new organizations and be seen as the leader I knew I was meant to be, was an ongoing exercise in personal growth and stick-it-ability.
I’ve learned a few things along the way with over 25 years leading in the corporate world, while not-so-secretly developing an exit strategy and nurturing a side hustle that gave me the confidence to leap into my encore career full time.
One the tough days I’ve found myself wondering if I should just give up and quit my big dreams... but my passion always wins out. I remind myself how bad I want this, and therefore know that I’m ready to go all in and to figure it out as I go along.
