A LETTER FROM TDR
A DAY WITH TDR - NEW THOUGHTS. NEW ACTIONS. NEW VIEW.
Are you ready to have a real conversation, address real issues, and get real results? The truth is... there is no one way to do anything. However, when you have the opportunity to connect with solid, solution driven and success minded individuals, it is important that you not only show up and make the sacrifice to get there, but it is equally as important that you ADD YOUR VOICE.
This is so important to me because for 2016, we have been enforcing the intentional message of A NEW VIEW for 2016!
A new view requires that we get honest on a new level. We must look at ourselves and ask where we can improve?
We must look at our goals and ask, where can I improve or how can I use my wisdom and mistakes to propel forward?
We must assess the people and environment around us and honestly ask if we are in a healthy place to thrive and what changes may be needed to support our ultimate growth.
Many times we are too hard on ourselves but then there are times when we are ready to get serious, streamline, tap into the root of an issue and LEVEL UP. Yes!!!! Level up, meaning reach and execute towards a greater vision and a deeper level of potential and truth. I have been in business for several years now and I never imagined that getting laid off would catapult me into my love for entrepreneurship full time. It was overwhelming and scary but it was exciting too. There were days when I felt like I was on 2,000 and could conquer the world. Then there were days that I felt alone, fragile and vulnerable. I was uncertain of how things would fall into place but I was never uncertain of the talents and skills that I had worked too hard to learn in my past corporate career in Federated Buying Offices or at the University of Georgia.
I knew that eventually I would be lead to a place that would lead me exactly where I was meant to be. After bootstrapping (a fancy word for doing a whole hell of a lot with a little lol) my first brick and mortar storefront with my entire severance package and no investment money and struggling to get my startup off the ground, to becoming a national speaker and consultant that wanted to help others feel the freedom that I felt, I realized that my belief system changed over time and I began to emerge from a deeper place.
See at first I thought everybody needed to be an entrepreneur and "if you were building your own dreams then you were being paid to build someone else's." In fact, a portion of that is true to a degree. However, after embracing my transformation after taking a pause and writing my book The Power Of Peace In A Pause, I realized that not everyone is meant to be a full time entrepreneur because not everyone is equipped or wants to invest their life in creating their own welfare. Some individuals simply want options. Some just want peace of mind and some of the most talented people I have ever met in my life, have honestly told me that they can not stand the unpredictability of entrepreneurship, especially at the bootstrapping phase. Guess what? I get it. I respect it. Why? Because I now understand that what is for me may not be for you and what is for you may not be fort me. However, that doesn't mean that together we can't do something amazing!
Now I am a huge advocate of people creating the life that is in their heart. We all want some form of success, whether it be in our company, families, organizations, relationships or whatever. It all begins with our mind, our heart, and our intent.
This is why I began to dedicate myself to infusing personal development and self accountability exercises and intentional thought provoking messaging to the business and entrepreneurial consulting that I offer. If we want better results with anything, we have to first be wiling to start at the source. We are the source. We have amazing potential and power, however many times we are taught to reach on the outside instead of within.
As we celebrate the manifestations of our New View for 2016, I want to invite you to Train for a Day With TDR. It will be an intentional day of community, learning, and leveraging what you already have! Many times we are seeking someone new without learning how to put the pieces together that are already in your lap so to speak.
Let's maximize where you are with what you have without getting overwhelmed, overloaded with too much to execute, and learn to leverage.
Join me for
A New View. New Actions. New Results. I look forward to locking arms with you just as you are. On that note, I 'll leave you with the quote that blessed me most as I embarked into 2016.
" You don't need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections."
