Sometimes the answers to your business & career challenges are right outside your front door. You walk by it everyday and you may not see it. The insight on how to get new customers, change your job, or actually ship that project are all right there.
When our kids were little we used to go camping at Acadian Nation Park up in Maine. I anxiously waited to get our reservation for a campsite on the day they became available to ensure we would get one.
Every trip started to have a familiar pattern. As soon as we hit the traffic at the toll – I think at Maine – the kids would begin to cry. They had reached their limit and wanted out.
Once we got there our trips were great! Although I will confess that my idea of camping was always that we went to a hotel if it rained.
On a particularly long trip back one year as we turned got to the bend our neighbor I looked out over the water and thought – wow we really drove 9 hours – parts look a lot like this.
While that really isn’t perfectly accurate it made me realize that I wasn’t looking closely enough at what was right outside my front door.
Opportunities are right there – you just have to look and discover them.
My friend Pamela Slim also made a big discovery like that recently which lead her to open K’é – A Place to Grow Small Business to support small businesses in her area and virtually.
In her Jedi ways she will connect both Mesa folks with her virtual tribe and it will magically benefit everyone.
Right now she is offering a great series 3o days series of classes during October.
If you are looking for a longer time period to work on the goal take a peak at my 4th Quarter LEAP Program. Magic will happen there as well.
