The 7 Stages of Entrepreneurial Growth

There is a path of personal growth that every entrepreneur travels.

Sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is slow. Often it is painful.

Some will fall along the way but this isn’t survival of the fittest. It isn’t the survival of those who are most prepared to grit their teeth and push, hustle and prove their worth to the world.

Entrepreneurship is for those who are prepared to get to know themselves and be brutally honest about what they see.

7 ways you are hiding on social media

It is surprisingly easy to be everywhere and not really be seen by anyone.

And despite the need to be visible to reach your potential clients, you may well be simply hiding in plain sight.

Social media has become a playground where you can pretend to be visible while doing your best to keep yourself hidden.

A close look at social media feeds tells the story of entrepreneurs everywhere who waging a war between the part of themselves that wants (and needs) to be seen and the part that wants to stay safely out of sight.

Reclaiming Stories and the Freedom of Choice

Humans are transported to another world deep within them through the power of story. Every good story is a tale of transformation.

It speaks of the depths where we find the resourcefulness to triumph over the trials that face us.

Fables, myths and stories are part of our understanding of life and how we interpret our place in this world. They have inspired and challenged the human race for millennia.

They speak to the deepest part of ourselves that is rarely given the freedom to be. They speak to who we are, transporting us beyond who we are being.

Create to Thrive

No one begins a business to be its beck and call day in, day out.

No one sets out to create a business that demands their constant attention and presence to stay alive.

Yet that is what most create.

They create services to bring in the essential income, they deliver the services and then have to create more just to balance the books. Most find themselves on the hamster wheel of creating, delivering and creating again just to survive. A merry-go-round of offer after offer, programme after programme that, imperceptibly at first, drains their spirit.
