Well, now that I’ve bared a bit of my soul for you all to see, I’m not sure where to go next.
When I wrote the post on Friday about my ‘Gotta Get Goals,’ I didn’t realize it would have such an effect. Not only on you, by your comments – which I thank you for, but on me as well. Over the weekend and into today I’m a little foggy on how I want to proceed.
I’ll certainly continue blogging about small business development, marketing, using the web, blogging, etc. And, it feels right to begin doing so with even more of my own, unique perspective.
When I work with clients, it’s never just about business building. It’s much more. Often I share with my clients how to bring themselves more forward in their business. Not just ‘own,’ but how to bring more of their own, authentic selves forward in caring for their clients and customers.
This doesn’t mean getting all touchy-feely with your clients, not at all. It does mean moving with your clients and customers from, as Liz Strauss talks about, your fully-expressed self.
Moving is the key word because as a good service providers I actively move with my clients through their process. Not in a co-dependent way. No. Rather in a way of coaching, consulting and educating in which I’m interested in my client’s success.
Hence, I’m not just selling them a product or a service. Instead I’m taking a position the position of mutual benefit – they win, I win. Not, they pay – I win, they may win if they get it. I help them get it so they can win too.
So stick around. Looks like another set of changes coming. But that’s one thing I can say, I rarely stand still.
