That’s what a client wrote after I explained the thinking behind my not-quite-like-everyone-else business model.
We’ve only been working together for a few weeks, but she’s already taking off like a rocket: putting together packages, revamping her pricing structure, and taking a much-needed fresh look at self care.
To say that she was ready is an understatement – and it’s soooo much fun to see her becoming.
So when I got her note, this is what I wrote back.
“You know that tag line I use? Love your business, love your life? I live that. :)) I really, really, really, really, really love seeing people grow….”
And it hit me how absolutely true that is.
I really do love my business. I really do love my life. (And sometimes I cry when I see people grow.)
When I started my first business back in (gasp!) the early 90’s, I had no idea what I was doing.
I’d never taken a business course or read a single business book. I didn’t know anyone who ran a business other than an aunt who sold insurance.
There was no such thing as the internet, and the only coaches I knew were men with whistles yelling at the football team.
But that was a long time ago, and the world is a very different place today. When I think of all the mistakes I’ve made, and lessons I’ve learned, I wish I could talk to that young, clueless, but courageous, young woman I was back then.
