Sorry guys this one is for the ladies.
I had the pleasure of attending Blogging Concentrated on Sunday. Dan and Rachel (and the other speakers) were great. Not only did I laugh a lot, have a ton of fun but I learned a lot too! One of the most important takeaways for me was all about the WHY – why I do what I do and telling my story with the why first. (It’s a bit more in depth than that – I took a ton of notes all about this! – but that’s the gist of it).
So when I saw an infographic on Kathleen Gage’s website, it was perfect to share today because it fits right in with what I just learned at the blogging conference! The one thing that stood out most to be was:
Your business is merely a means to get your message out to the world. It’s not just about WHAT you do but the reasons behind WHY you do it.
Those couple sentences resonated with me because we had just talked about telling your story and the why behind why you do things at the conference.
So if you’re a woman business owner, take a couple minutes to check out Kathleen’s infographic The Umbrella of Secrecy!
Side Note: I’ve had the honor of meeting Kathleen Gage in person. It was many moons ago – we were at NAMS3 – and I’ll never forget how encouraging she was. It was during the affiliate contest and I had just gotten my very first sale but was feeling discouraged that it was only one (I wanted to win the contest!). She sent me a private message on Twitter and I don’t even remember what her exact words were, but it was a boost of encouragement. Ever since then, I’ve just loved her!
