It is Friday and I am ready for a busy ThirtyOne-derful weekend after what has been a week filled with Thirty One activity. I had the chance to Celebrate and Connect with some AWESOME women on Wednesday night as we prepared to PARTY, PARTY, PARTY this holiday season. During the day yesterday, I got to network with and meet some new women at “Women Only Networking”. Then last night, I shared Thirty One with local women who were enjoying a Girl’s Night Out courtesy of Ocean Medical Center in Brick. I get a breather today then tomorrow it is off to St. John’s United Methodist Church in Hazlet to do a Thirty One Photo Booth. I LOVE being able to share the gift of Thirty One!
No, that is not why I am a “gutsy girl” today. Well, maybe it is because it is sharing Thirty One all over that brings me the most joy. The last speaker that I want to share about from ETTM’s Power of Connection Conference is Roe Couture DeSarno – your Crusader for the Gutsy Girl Life! Her story gave me chills as she shared the transformation that took place in her life after 9-11. Here are some things she shared that may help YOU to become a “gutsy girl”:
- Know who you are… be authentic. Our priority is to connect with our true self and our passion. I know, not always easy for those of us with excess baggage. Maybe you are still looking for your true self. Maybe you live with a lot of “shoulda” and as a result, you never really get to your true self. I am getting ready to take her Core Values Test to see what things I can discover about myself. Not to worry, I will share.
- Know why you do what you do. I know, you hear it all of the time “your why”, right? But what if you were to dig a little deeper. What is the driving force that keeps you going? For some, it is to pay bills, or stay at home with their kids, while for others it was a short term goal to pay for a trip or earn a trip. Maybe you don’t even know what your why is. If you are still working your business beyond you initial why – what makes it meaningful to you?
As you all know, I struggle with my why on a regular basis. Always digging deeper to get to the root of why I want to do what I do (besides I love the product). I love this quote Roe shared:
“Why is the foundation to courage. Only when you know why matters can you be the courageous person who you need to be to figure out your goals so you can have your goals”
Here are two things that will help you in your business (I am working on them now):
- Take inventory of your accomplishments within the last 30 days, 6 months, 1 year. Then move onto your previous job. Think about a risk you took and it paid off or worked. List 30 things! Yes, I said 30.
- Make a list of 30 things that your clients (customers) will experience from working with me. This one is tough too. I got as far as 20 and am struggling.
I would love to have you share your lists with us or even some of your accomplishments… Who is ready to share?
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
