Pursing a passion as a career is a blessing unlike any other. What could be better than getting paid to do something you love? That’s the subject of my story just published in USA Today’s, April 13-15 weekend edition, Direct Selling News supplement. (Page 10)
Writing this story validated for me the choices I’ve made in my life about writing and I hope it empowers others to look at their work as something from which to gain value (and I’m not just talking dollars!) Seth Godin, Tory Johnson, and Dan Miller are all tremendous sources for people wanting to change up their idea of work and explore the possibilities beyond a “trading time for money” job. (What inspiring folks!)
Letting your world know what you’re doing is vital to success. That’s something I struggle with personally. (Frankly, I’m uncomfortable tooting my own horn.) But with social media it is easier these days to reach out to your world. In fact, it’s a tremendous asset to building the kinds of relationships (work or otherwise) that can not only bring you business, but lasting happiness. Plus, social media is making it possible for entrepreneurs to not only compete, but also win at the innovation game. In this same supplement you will find a social media-focused story (page 19) that celebrates relationship building (Facebook-, Twitter- and Pinterest-style).
While it still gives me an uneasy (attention-monger) feeling to post links to stories I’ve written, I’m so happy to share what I’ve learned with those who matter most to me. My hope is to provide some value to you, and thereby, leave the world better than I found it.
Happy Spring to you all,
Leave the world better than you found it!
