Lindsay’s In Business: PART 19: Tapping into new energy

What happens when you realise your path is entrepreneurship rather than employment? Lindsay takes up the challenge and shares an account of her journey as it unfolds…

 I go to a yoga class every Saturday morning. It’s a lovely, easy, stretchy class – nothing too taxing. At the end of the class, the instructor Cassandra always give us some homework for the week ahead. Homework? Doesn’t sound nice. But actually, the homework is always about a way to think about being in the world that helps us be the best version of who we want to be.

This week, the homework was to find the positive energy and perseverance that you need to keep doing what you want to do, even if the going gets tough.

I need that. People are telling me it takes time to get a business off the ground. Sometimes it feels a bit insane: believing, pushing, smiling, developing, chasing, imagining…

But I know that the Mirror Mirror concept is solid, pioneering even. I am convinced it can take off. I know that it will add value. I am passionate about the angle it takes. I am not giving up.

In search of clients

I realised I’d been in touch with so many people over the past 6 months that now was the time to thank them for their support and update them on progress. And if you read this blog regularly, or just occasionally, I’d like to thank you too for your interest, curiosity and good vibes:

  •  especially now I have a new websitemirrormirrorhub.com – do you like it? (Natali Drake, a very good value brand and marketing consultant worked with me on that.)
  •  especially now that I’ve just put out a post on LinkedIn to promote the test offer for teams. If you could go to that post and share it for me, I’d be most grateful!
  •  and especially now that we are focusing on the message that Mirror Mirror is great for a team away day, via this new flyer, as below. If you know anyone who might like to get that flyer, you can earn double bonus points from me, by downloading it from here and passing it on 😊

So here I am. Feeling better than I did last month. Still working on business development like mad. Drawing energy from the fact that energy can come from within if you can just tap into it.

It’s obvious that when you ready a product and declare it ‘NOW AVAILABLE!!’ that there will be relative silence in return. But it still takes you by surprise.

But we’re not sitting 🙂 . Now that the Mirror Mirror process has been designed and is ‘ready’ to go, we need people to test Mirror Mirror, to give us feedback and help us fine tune it to be an AMAZING intervention.
