Have You Thought About Your Why Lately?

I’m part of a year long mastermind program and this month’s topic was, You, First” and the question asked of us was…

“Why did you start your business and what does it give you that you otherwise wouldn’t have?”

When I really start to think about it, I realize that much of my initial why is no longer that relevant.

I’m a rebel at heart and I will easily go left when you tell me to go right just because I GET TO CHOOSE how I want things to turn out. 

I know now that I’m no longer employable. 

I don’t fit into the traditional mode of going to work. 

When I think on that, my heart clenches, and my shoulders tighten.  Ugh the sense of dread, just writing that hurt my soul.

While I love sitting at my desk, in my teal colored office, with my himalayan salt lamp, crystals, two fur babies, the Electric Mayhem Bus and Bojack Horseman Pop all near by…

I know I started my business because I wanted to get away from the mundane and boring that a regular 9 to 5 was feeding me.

Now, my reason for building my business and creating a recurring revenue stream is so that I can continue to have the freedom and independence I’ve always craved (even when I didn’t know it).

I’m building my business so I can fund the life ​I choose to live and for many years to to come

I’m not striving for growth for the sake of growth, I’m not striving to build a team just because I should.  

I am striving to help the clients

…that know and appreciate what I do for them

…that I have the opportunity to build personal relationships with

…that as I get to know their websites and I am directly helping them build their dreams

…that see the value in having someone manage the technical bits of their website so they can focus on THEIR why, not the technical tasks to make their why a reality.

Today, I want you take some time to think about your why. 

“Why did you start your business and what does it give you that you otherwise wouldn’t have?”

Leave me comment if you want to share it with me – honestly I’d love to know.
