What it all means… for YOU

forest

Imagine being in a forest covered with haze. As the old saying goes, one can’t see the forest for the trees and ironically it applies in my situation. This vision had been brewing and looking back, it took a lifetime to evolve. It’s like the puzzle pieces finally started making sense and came together. The elements were all there, just not in focus and aligned on the right path. 

What evolved? I found my What’s next? First for some context, I was an early retiree with years of experience, training and supporting others realize their potential and capitalizing on their skills…. I was a teacher. My story is at the core of what emerged. Writing the book, The Wealthy Teacher: Answering the question, What’s next? became an exercise of self discovery and started me on a path to alignment. All of the pieces of my life were placed on a tablet before me as I discovered my needs.

So, what does it all mean and how does it have any impact for you? There are many people, consciously or unconsciously, looking for what’s next? However, many don’t realize that it is not the what that is important but actually the why. The secret is grounded in your core – your passion – your purpose. That is the element that ties everything together and creates lasting satisfaction. It also is at the core of what came next on my path to serve you.

Finding alignment, internally and externally was important. This alignment was the vision behind the launch of new services that connect with existing brands.  Externally, they may seem unrelated, however there is a strong thread that transcends and connects them – Passion for community service. Utilizing my story, experience and expertise as a trainer, nonprofit specialist, believer in social enterprise and corporate social responsibility, became the foundation.

Your needs –  Help you find meaning, purpose and be profitable too.

Are you asking what’s next as I did? Where does your passion lead you? Want to start a nonprofit, envision a business or combine the two? Supporting your needs has been central to our services and here’s how they work together.

Building Your Tribe

Over the last 18 – 24 months, my life, career and perspective on who I am has taken a major shift. It wasn’t a big “AH HA’ moment but a gradual shift and realization of my strengths and weaknesses. Concepts I had to embrace include, I do not have super powers, live on an island, know everything, and must do everything myself.  This was an eye opener…. for those of you that know me. Touche! Feels so good to acknowledge and put it out there.

These discoveries came during restructuring my company and writing the book The Wealthy Teacher: Answering the question, what’s next?  I was exploring my roots, re-living past experiences and looking at how my career and life evolved. It was an adventure down memory lane that stirred and reignited some of my own passions. It was the message I was conveying to my readers, yet I had strayed from that path and was not honoring my own passions. However, that is not the purpose of this blog. I digress….

My time writing is significant because it became a time of isolation and it made me realize the power of being connected, to your tribe, your community. My entire career had been based on building relationships, creating bonds and tribes, watching others grow and succeed. I still need that and it is my passion.

my_tribeTony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos in his bestselling book, Delivering Happiness details his journey building his tribe. 75 years ago Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, introduced the concept of mastermind groups, a highly successful business strategy widely used today. People with similar goals, challenges and interest gather to gain multiple perspectives and use this time to solve problems and gain insight. A tribe…

My goal is to help others build their tribe, a community to call their own. You will be my tribe too.

Come join my tribe. Join a community that will support your goals.

So here’s the plan – I’ll offer two main streams of support.  The use of virtual meetings and webinars has grown in significance as a useful tool, however the POWER of live interaction can not be totally overlooked. For me personally it has two outcomes, provides a vehicle for me to support my clients needs, and feeds my soul. Sounds like a win-win. It will allow me to embrace my passion for training and serving.
