For me, the motivation to start a business was almost like an 'unfolding', by that I mean the skills, passion, experience, qualifications and creativity 'came together' from within. When I realised the 'how' it was definitely a 'a-ha' moment that just led to an inner feeling of 'ahhhhh!' -understanding of where I can direct my focus, learn from mistakes and barriers, use calm reflection to figure it out. The biggest boost was recognising my strengths AND weaknesses and be willing to work WITH people who knew more than me.
There's always going to be challenges, real or imagined it's getting up each day and 'taking action' towards bringing our intent forward.
Great question @Ashley Misleh | Marketing the next question is always "what keeps the fire alight? How do you keep going when things seem impossible?"
So it seems as though it was a natural progression for you, and then there was the fork(or forks) in the road where you either let it continue in its progression and thrive or continue in the progression where now you with all of the creativity, experience and qualifications mentioned decided to take it into an SE direction as well. I’m curious about that step.
Right! How has that original motivation evolved into what is keeping the fire lit? (Even if it’s a flicker 😀)
For me, the moment was when I learned that I have something to offer. There is this constant change that demands creativity and to keep learning (new things about ourselves, about the new dynamics of people and our environment, over time). This 'project manager' internal drive, a real WANT to do something, to ACT on it in this life, this existence.
“that I have something to offer” this is beautiful. To start any project, business, partnership with this as the mindset of all involved, the meeting table would be approached more meaningfully, intentionally and with more purpose.
