I have a confession. There was a time when I thought books, courses, and coaching about mindset was all mumbo jumbo. I’m a go-getter. I want tips on what to do, not how to think. It was all too woo-woo for me.
But back in 2014, I made the decision to start taking myself seriously as a businesswoman and that mindset shift changed everything. The next year See Jane Write grew exponentially and I was even selected by the Birmingham Business Journal as one of their Top 40 Under 40. Mindset made all the difference.
Confession: I haven’t sent a message to my main email list in nearly a month. Sure, I’ve emailed the members of the See Jane Write Collective regularly about all of the awesome virtual events we’ve had this month. But for my general email list — the See Jane Write Weekly — it’s been crickets.
This, however, was actually a planned sabbatical. I wanted to take this month to brainstorm new ideas for the See Jane Write Weekly and to brainstorm ways to grow my list.
On September 8-10, 2019 I had the opportunity to attend Inspired Vacay, a retreat hosted by and for the members of the Female Entrepreneur Association. This year’s Inspired Vacay was held in Palm Springs and I headed to sunny California with a few set intentions: 1) I wanted to talk to FEA founder Carrie Green about See Jane Write and get her advice on how to grow my membership program. 2) I wanted to develop a vision and plan for my business for 2020 and the rest of 2019. 3) I wanted to make a genuine, long-lasting connection with at least one other attendee. 4) I wanted to get photographed in my new swimsuit.
I’ve always called myself a dreamer. I guess you could say it runs in my family. My brother, who’s a music producer, is quite the dreamer, too. We even have our own hashtag — #PowerToTheDreamers.
But I recently realized I wasn’t quite the dreamer I’ve always claimed to be.
