I’ve been in business on my own for 20 years.
In that time, I’ve created many businesses, eight to be exact, and I’m now building number nine. However, as they say, not all businesses are created equal. Three of my businesses were successful. They enabled me to do work I was passionate about, work that filled me with a strong sense of purpose, and they were profitable. In fact, all three businesses hit six figures.
The other five businesses, well let’s just say they never truly got off the ground.
Not for a lack of trying. Not because I didn’t market them. And, not because I didn’t work hard. In many ways, I worked harder in the businesses that failed than the ones that succeeded.
So what was the difference?
Well, there were a few differences. But as I look back at all those businesses, I see now that one of the main differentiators was that I was Working Inspired in the businesses that succeeded.
In the others, I wasn’t.
Whether I was focused primarily on making more money, following someone else’s blueprint, or modeling someone else’s success, the motivation behind my actions, and the actions I was taking, were not inspired. I was doing what someone else told me to do. I was doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing. Not what felt right to me, or that I knew in my heart I should be doing. And certainly not what I was inspired to do.
What do I mean by Working Inspired?
