Reinvention is that phase in the evolution of an entrepreneur that comes along when things have been going pretty damn smoothly.
Or “slicker than snot” as my siblings and I so eloquently put it when we were kids.
You’re happy with the amount of money you’re earning.
Serving clients you adore.
Life is gooooooooooooooood.
And then one day you wake up and realize there’s something else you need to offer the world.
Sometimes you know exactly what it is. Other times, you don’t have a clue. Simply a feeling that you’re being called by something bigger than you.
What you do know is you’ve got a sense of being nudged (or maybe it’s a bullhorn in your ear…) to change things up.
By doing more. Or less. Or maybe something entirely different.
It forces you into an even bigger version of the game you’ve been playing until now.
As I go through a reinvention of my own, I’m even more aware that it’s a process of realignment.
And deeper truth.
Realignment with your ever-evolving self.
Finding truth in the intersection that acknowledges how both you and your audience have grown along the way.
Reinvention forces decisions about what to create. And what has to wait.
It’s about taking a good hard look at every bit of your life and business from a place of truth. And choosing what to let go of in order to create space for the new.
It’s about expressing your full self. Your evolved self. Your future self.
Because doing so will ultimately serve more people who are waiting for your even more resonant message. And better serve you too.
Over the coming days and weeks, I’ll periodically take you through the ins and outs of my current reinvention / realignment over on Facebook Live.
From what prompted my recent trips to Singapore, Cambodia and London.
To the world’s longest photo shoot — and the custom red skirt that wasn’t.
Untouched thumbnails over here!! >>>
To what I’m letting go — and why — and how.
Things I’m creating that are more in alignment with what’s ahead — while honoring where I’ve been.
And probably a whole bunch of other stuff that I haven’t even anticipated yet…
Because even if you’re not going through a reinvention / realignment right now, you will someday.
Guaranteed. It’s the way of the entrepreneur.
And perhaps what I share with you sheds light on making your own journey easier to steer through.
If you’re already in on my email communications, I’ll do my best to remember to shoot a quick email message when I know I’m going live. And be sure to follow me on Facebook if you don’t want to miss a beat!
