Getting Real, the Game Has Changed!
For the last few weeks I have been getting real about what I am committed to in life and I am finding it a little uncomfortable. I find that my ideals and passions conflict with the mainstream corporate ideals that paid my bills for many years of my life.
Recently I realised that four years after leaving my last job that I have become a business hippy! I now see the opportunity for people to use business as a means to an end. That end being the ability to help people create fulfilling lives, lives where you have the freedom to make a difference to the things that are important to you.
It is scary for me to declare this because for many years I saw this kind of public commitment as a “fluffy, feel good” concept without substance. Looking back I can see that I used pragmatism as an excuse to merely dabble in “doing good”. I still had “real work” commitments preventing me from launching into something that I was really committed to. Am I the only person who feels this way?
Lately I have been putting together a program to train 12 people in everything that I have been learning in my quest for a low maintenance income. This is exciting because this will be the proof that anyone with guts and motivation can create the lifestyle they want… However, I have a new rule for the game!
I am now looking for 12 people who have a massive commitment to something bigger than their own interest, people who would really like to sink their teeth into that thing that plays on their mind over and over. In particular I would like to work with people who would like to positively impact people, the environment, or social causes.
I believe that if money was not an issue that most people would want to either spend more time with their families, travel and have more adventures or make a difference in the world. It is people that fall into the last category that I really want to work with in this instance.
I know that this may cut out plenty of the people who would be interested in creating a passive income but I am ok with that! As the ruler of my own destiny, I choose to work with people who have great hearts, and that is how it is going to go.
So, I am looking for 12 people who really want to make a difference in the world who are interested in creating a low maintenance income. If you would like more information about the program please check it out here. If while you were reading this, someone popped in your head as perfect for this please forward it to them! I am trusting that this community of positive people will help me find the people I am looking for. And for the rest of you, please watch this space, I promise to update you on the progress of our fabulous 12 and their exciting adventure on a regular basis.
If you have any comments on this change in direction, I would love to hear them, so please share.
Business Coach – Serena Star-Leonard – Star Coaching
I have always had a healthy belief that if you really want to do what you love for a living you can find a way to make it work for you (and done right make it work really well for you!). My coaching practice is designed to guide people who understand that there is something more to life than working 9-5 and who are driven to do something about it.
Recently I noticed that many people were trying to use the internet to create alternate sources of income but made the same costly mistakes time and time again. So much so that I partnered up and created Grassroots Internet Strategy, a small business resource that helps people understand what they really need to know and plan for.
If you have a burning desire to either start or expand I would love to hear from you…
