I Love My Network

On the other side of the sea...

I have the greatest bunch of friends.  More importantly, I have a great bunch of friends that are also solopreneurs and run businesses of their own.  This means that if I ever need to bounce business ideas or challenges off someone, I have a great team to do that with.

I’m so thankful for the fact that I know, without a doubt that I’m never alone.  This is something that I wish for anyone, whether you own  a business or what.  May you always have a team to support you in whatever you do.

Today I met one of my friends for lunch.  There was a lot of catching up since it had been nearly two months since we’d last talked (brief emails and text messages on NYE don’t count).  I loved hearing where she was in her business and what she was focusing on for this year.

It was great to be able to share in her successes and support her when she needed it. I think she’s going to do some amazing things this year and I can’t wait to share that with her as well.

I also really enjoyed being able to share what I’m going through right now (this feeling of being pulled in different directions and not knowing what to focus on) and getting her input.  I think, through her insight, I finally get it.

I really feel like I know what I need to do now.  I can finally stop avoiding setting some goals and gaining some focus.  Sadly, I seem to be so quick to play the part of the ostrich and stick my head in the sand waiting for something to come to me.  And to top it all off, I’m excited again.  This is most definitely a good thing.

So if you’ve got something that’s been bugging you, take a moment and ask your friends for their input.  Ask for help if you need to.  Stop fighting it and just open yourself up to receive.  You never know what might come of it.

So what’s been bugging you or keeping you up at night?  What would you like to share?
