Take a moment and have a think about your life. Are you happy? Do you love your job? Are you studying your dream subject? Do you wake up every day excited about your life?
Something to think about anyway. I’m in two minds about things. Sometimes I think that I should just keep doing what I’m doing, work hard and slowly build my way up into something fantastic. Other times I want to completely change everything and go on an adventure.
I’d love to be travelling the world talking about what it means to finally have a sense of who you are as a person and how important it is to nurture self-esteem in others. I have pages and pages of notes and ideas that I am insanely passionate about and I’m currently looking for opportunities to share my thoughts with the world.
Imagine being paid to share your ideas and do something that you love. It’s the ultimate goal really. This is what I’m working towards. That first opportunity to earn money from what I love to do.
And tomorrow is December which means goodness how fast this year has flown but also that there will be a new ‘Quote of the Month’ on the website which you absolutely must read!
It’s been a little while since I have posted and for that I apologise.
I have recently had this really strong feeling that there is something I could be doing right now other than everything which currently occupies my time. I haven’t exactly discovered what that thing is yet but it has encouraged me to try a new approach to business.
So far I have managed to prioritise my time better so that I am more efficient and actually get things done instead of finding lots of other non-important things to do. (Which means that I finally did laundry and made a start on my Philosophy essay!)
Currently I’m writing the OFFICIAL mission statement for Sense Of Self as it’s one thing to have a really great idea and a fab ethos but the important thing is to have it written down and saved everywhere so that I can hand it out left, right and centre until people start taking notice!!
I even have an action plan that will take me right up to Christmas (oh goodness, it really IS that time already…) but then things will snowball into next year and maybe people will start to see a change in their every day lives.
Although I am getting good at posting really interesting things on the Facebook page so you should definitely check that out 🙂
The weather today is actually gorgeous here. I always feel inspired and happy when the sun is shining and it’s even kinda warm today too! Brilliant!
I’m working on my video pitch for the San Francisco Summit competition. For those of you who don’t know, it’s a competition where five businesses will be taken to San Francisco for a week of inspiration! There are meetings with some of the worlds biggest names in business and I really cannot think of a better opportunity for entrepreneurs! To enter you have to make a 30-second video pitch explaining why you should get to go and then the successful ones are shortlisted etc, etc. I have a really quirky idea for mine because believe it or not it is very difficult to explain much in 30 seconds.
I’m also part of a business tracking group where we meet up every month or so to discuss our goals and set targets, then we are there to give each other a kick on the backside to make sure that we are achieving as much as we can. I have noticed that my attitude and productivity have improved wildly. It’s GREAT!
Right. I really need to get on with this. The competition deadline is two weeks away and as usual I am being just a little over-ambitious… but I can do it!!
Sorry for the lack of posting, things have been getting really busy for me recently. It’s great! I have designed a logo and it is based on the cirlce of infinite possibilities. I have designated a meaning for each arrow too so that my logo has a personal meaning for me but also so that I have a cool story to tell people if they ask about the logo. People love stories. I think it’s lovely and I will post a picture as soon as I have a final design because it’s one thing having a great idea and some rough sketches but it’s another thing to actually make it appear on paper the way i see it in my imagination… BUT I love to draw so all should be fine.
I’m looking into getting some t-shirts printed with a kind of promotional design to get people talking about what I’m doing so that there is a buzz of excitement and energy in time for the website to be launched and subsequently, THE BUSINESS!
I hope to drive you all to pay more attention to my facebook page too.. *hint hint*
Cheers for now, busy busy busy!
Well well well, things are certainly getting exciting around here! I have been arranging things and having meetings like they’re going out of fashion. (I love it) I really enjoy being busy and always having something to do. I admit it does take me a while to motivate myself sometimes but once I’m started…WOW
I’m having a productive day business-wise and I’m creating a small survey. The word ‘survey’ isn’t one I delight in using as I know when somebody even mentions a survey to me all I can think about is standing in the freezing cold answering eighty-billion questions and stressing about the time because I actually have somewhere else to be. So, I am making a survey, yes, but it will be absolutely nothing like that. Hopefully just a handful of questions with quick answers that will give me some proof of market research. It’s all fine and well for me to ask my friends what they think or to use my initiative (being a teenager myself) but anybody that will be able to help me in business is going to need actual evidence of real market research. Hopefully I can have them ready by next week so I can start researching on my days off. (Still working at the gallery, still loving it)
All I need right now is the little things to fit together and then I shall be ready to actually accept all the prize-package help and… START A BUSINESS!!!
If you (yes YOU) could help me out that would be awesome. I’d love to know what you think of my business idea and where you think it would work best? (online, in it’s own shop, in other high-street shops…etc) Oh oh oh, and, any advice on how to boost the attention online would be much appreciated? My wee facebook page is great but I’m still striving to break into the 100’s for likes but trying not to post too often where people hide me in their newsfeed. (That wouldn’t be good)
Very exciting times ahead and I hope to hear from some of you soon!
Yeah I’m listening to ‘Anything Goes’ by Guns N Roses.
I feel kinda inspired today because it’s been a good day on the think front. I’ve been thinking a lot oh AND I think I forgot to tag my last post in anything which is annoying but hey-ho.
It has been almost a year since I won the competition and I am looking forward to going back again this year to talk about my progress and to see all the new ideas this year.
Ambitiously I would LOVE to get things going and take the first steps to actually starting Sense Of Self, but honestly I am really scared. Sigh.
Please keep telling everybody on the planet about my blog and I’m going to get round to making a Facebook page too.
Busy week at work coming up too which I’m looking forward to. Oh and it’s almost November!!?? Argh time is literally running away from me but here’s some food for thought from a really fascinating Spanish guy I work with –
“Where does the time go when the time passes?”
