One of my favorite Sunday morning rituals is reading Chris Brogan’s newsletter. I have been on Chris’ list for a while, and have enjoyed watching the evolution of his business and content from dealing primarily with social media to getting straight to the heart of what you need to do to be a successful entrepreneur.
Yesterday’s newsletter was all about the power of forgiveness and Easter. Easter is at its core the story of something terrible happening, of forgiveness and starting again. Every religion has a similar story – and chances are, you’ve been through this cycle many times in personal life. It is how you make progress. Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in the “something bad happens” and not make it through to “forgiveness” – or you forgive but get stuck and don’t move on. The growth happens when you take the step to start again.
For example, you might have noticed your email inbox was seeming a little empty last week. I didn’t get the solo biz bites done. This week, I am starting over.
As we end the first quarter of 2016, are you feeling discouraged? Is your business possibly not where you thought it would be at this point? My guess is that there are things you are celebrating and things that you wish you could do over. My challenge to you, is to be gentle with yourself and forgive, then wipe the slate clean and start over.
Not sure where to start? We’ve found that often just a few simple tweaks can make all the difference. We’ll be talking all about that in a webinar on April 6 where we’ll introduce the concept and issue a challenge to you to make six simple swaps and see where they take you.
My name is Meredith Eisenberg - the solo biz hacker - I love to scour the internet for new strategies and ideas - and then experiment to see which ideas really work.
