When it comes to running our own businesses, it’s easy to feel like we’re always beginners. Each new project, product, or venture brings with it a whole new learning curve and set of responsibilities.
It’s part of the game that makes things interesting, challenging, risky, and rewarding.
In my own business, I’m on my third career change in six years. After building a lifestyle brand with Jess LC, I switched gears to business consulting and business products. Twelve months later, I’m now shifting focus from business to the personal growth world (with a dash of design, as seen above).
Closing established brands, products, and client bases for the next chapter is exciting – and at times rather isolating.
Lately, I have been thinking about this new chapter and now realize that these kinds of shifts are not about “starting over.”
I’m not on Level One all over again, I’m on Level Three.
Just because we still have a lot to learn doesn’t mean that we’re not further in our careers and purposes than ever before.
This type of promotion isn’t about a raise or a corner office. It’s about a shift in consciousness within our careers.
I believe it’s time for us to start viewing our growth and evolution from a bigger perspective.
Whenever we move towards a more authentic version of our purpose – by expanding our established businesses, launching brand new ones, accepting amazing job offers, or raising our children full-time – we are entitled to honor these evolutions as promotions.
Because looking through the lens of our legacy… they are.
May something wonderful happen to you today,
Thinking about doing The Intention Sessions with me?
I hit a tipping point with feeling overwhelmed in my work life and as a result was suffering my personal and interpersonal life.
Thanks to Jess, I was able to have the insight and clarity I needed to figure out the how and why and take back control of my life. To keep myself accountable I wrote a contract to make myself and shared my experience and goals with others.
Through Jess and living and working with intention, I was able to make the changes I needed to and take the steps necessary to tip back in the right direction. I truly believe it wouldn’t have been possible with out her guidance and advice. Through not only our intention sessions but through the “Wish I Knew” book and blog.
And for that I am forever grateful.
