Finding the Gold for Your Business

Mining your life story

As someone who has rewritten their life numerous times through the course of living, I have, just as frequently, set aside my stories, accomplishments, and history in order to just “get on with it and get down to business.”

When we decide to show up for our businesses, we can feel like we’ve gotta show up “better than we are.” We may feel like we’ve got to look a certain way, some version of “professional,” or to try a “fake it till we make it” attitude, which can make us feel like we’re wearing our Mom’s shoes and suit coat. Dealing with low self-esteem can really hold us back in so many ways.

When I begin the work with a new client, I guide them through a powerful remembering exercise. Together, we claim each award, each experience, each learning and skill and add it to a long, running list. Their accomplishments are always great and beautiful. They get to embrace and celebrate every part of their life story. This process helps them shape and enrich the business they were born to run and the clients they were meant to serve. It’s pure gold.

When you sit down to craft the words that represent you and the work you do, remember to claim all of you, even the tender, emotional parts. Every piece of your story and experience plays a significant role in the heart-driven work you do.
