I take the plunge and publish my campaign on Publishizer with a few challenges in the mix, No list, no engaged social media presence and no money. I’ve run around with this in my head for a while and only accomplished panic and distraction and procrastination, vacillating between them. When is the right time? it’ll never be that perfect time, Yes I can wait to have a massive list, and a huge following and lots of money but there will always be boulders along the way created by myself just like these at this moment. So with a brave face and the thought of, if not now when? and a faint glimmer of hope with the idea to flip the fear and turn this into a fun project, try different angles and play. An opportunity to share insights, short stories, and ideas along the way, and create a learning filled, fun, environment. I’m stoked!

My phone rings, a distraction from writing this vulnerable piece, it’s my friend, she is frantic, and she needs to talk. I drop everything and meet her in the park; I love reveling in nature as often as possible. She’s at a crossroads in her business and I ask her, What do you want with this business? And then? and then? and when you get there what then? she has to get a clear picture of what she wants. She replies that she keeps recycling the task that she knows she must do every day, back onto the to-list for the next day. She knows she has to do it to move forward, but keeps stopping herself from doing it. We discuss solutions while enjoying the sunshine. I smile, at a simple truism, everyone we meet is our mirror, somehow if we take time to listen, the universe is always speaking to us. I was struggling with pushing the launch button on this campaign, repeating the to-do every day and feeling the anxiety increase within my body. I needed my friend to reflect this back to me to push me out of my ruminations. This is also a powerful example of synchronicity.

A thought for you, dear reader: Who is reflecting back to you in your life? Are you frustrated and blaming them or do you see them as the angels that they really are?Take a few minutes and jot this down in your journal, you will be amazed at the insight.

That everyone you meet is your mirror would relate to clients, we are constantly in this melding pot of learning through all our relationships. It’s exciting, it gives us the opportunity to be in each…
