I’m sharing an extra-special blog this week.
If you’re anything like me, you find words powerful. They guide you, boost you, and inspire you – and so as you navigate the path of self-employment, with its myriad joys and challenges, you may constantly be looking for words to live by.
Some of the words you find will leave you cold. Phrases like “find your competitive advantage” and “dominate the market” turn me off in a heartbeat. They have nothing to do with the world I want to create.
I crave a different world. One in which we feel inherently and unconditionally safe. Where we see no competition, but only allies, supporters, buddies and champions. And where we remember that we are meant to be here, we are needed, and all is well.
So, when I emailed my community on 1st January with words to this effect, I discovered I’m not the only one. My heart-felt wishes for us appeared to move and comfort; I heard time and again from people who had printed the message to stick on their wall or to slide into their journal.
I realised these words were what many of us had been craving – and so my team and I have transformed the message into a beautiful 3-minute animated video.
My voice, uplifting music and vibrant illustrations have turned the words into an anthem with which to start your self-employed days.
Settle in and watch now:
