Just in case you didn't know, I am not perfect. Yeah, big surprise huh?! But here is the cool part, I am getting better at listening to my heart and doing things that are more in line with who I am. And frankly, it is liberating. A few months ago, Miranda and I created a new webinar, "Uh Oh, I've got too many clients. What to do when your couch is full." Loved the title, but the webinar itself...meh. I don't know what it was, but it wasn't jiving for us. And the reality is we could have kept doing it. But why? I mean, why do something you don't like?
So, we sucked up our pride and just called it what it is...and now we are revamping the whole webinar. If you don't really know us yet, we want to do more than inspire you (though I LOVE inpsiring you), we want you to walk away and say, I am going to change X in my practice or to create a new goal. Aha moments are what we love to give.
So how about you? Are you doing something that isn't totally fitting you? When you put out a program, book, service package or whatever it is...does it reflect what you are all about? I hope so! Here is how you know if something is working or not. 2 things:
You feel passionate. You love what you are talking about and you could talk about it all day, because...you KNOW what you are talking about. It is your expertise, your interest, the thing that gets you up in the morning. Ok, well maybe not that...for me that is a toddler and she is everything to me. But it is the thing that keeps you doing your business.
There is a need. You have people that could really use what you have to offer. And when you do offer it, they love it. They want more! You get more positive feedback than negative AND the feedback is from who you intended to reach. Sometimes we get feedback, but it isn't helpful because it isn't intended for that person. It's like going to an expert on biology and asking them if you have a valid philosophical argument. So, take feedback within that context of who you intend to speak to.
If you decide - nope, this isn't working for me, then be open to some change. I know. It sucks when you put a lot of time into something. BUT it sucks more to have your life whittled away by something you don't LOVE to do and to be missing out on the people that need you most. And just so you know, we consider your feedback. We don't want our stuff to not be helpful. We truly want to help change our industry, your practice and your life.
