I have to admit, I thought about just throwing in the towel on You Leading You.
I enjoy the interviews, the coaching clients, speaking to groups about things that I’m passionate about, but…
The returns didn’t seem to add up, not just financially, but from a viewpoint of the diversity of my projects and client base. I appeared to be focused on having an answer for EVERYTHING, and this I knew is the issue. Having the opportunity to learn from actual experts, and live crash test dummies has been a phenomenal experience. The difference is that the insights I was receiving from my guests affirmed many of the practices that I already preached.
Instead, I realized that the point of what I wanted to do with You Leading You, was an entrepreneurial venture to create something, with my voice. An opportunity to share some of the things that the professional ranks have been leveraging me for years, with the energy and veracity that only I offer.
I know it sounds a little egotistical, but I am excellent at helping people. It’s also very general. It’s what had me at the crossroads as mentioned earlier.
I took a step back sometime at the beginning of April, I still did some interviews, which will be released over the next couple of weeks, but I defocused on the business of You Leading You. Family and my daytime commitments took precedent. Many moving pieces seemed destined to roadblock me from being the show and services I thought we were supposed to offer.
I looked within and saw that I was so disconnected from my purpose, I couldn’t see the forest for the trees.
I was wrong. People need help. Not just solutions, but an actual helping hand. That is where I come in.
I was wrong. People need help.
The core concept of You Leading You will remain, but some changes are afoot. While I still believe that everyone has a leader inside of them that can be, and do amazing things.
I forgot until I again realized. it can happen to me, that we all start somewhere, and go somewhere, but the road between is bumpy and full of obstacles.
My purpose is a lot closer to home than I realized, and so might yours. Within our grasp or under our nose. Who we become are the choices we make.
