I had the pleasure of presenting at a conference last week, with the topic, “Build Your Practice, Balance Your Life.” I wanted to share the principles that have helped me approach the work I do in a positive, assertive way that has enhanced my practice and how I interact with my clients.
Wanting to serve comes 1st: mission-centricity is hugely important to how I choose the clients I work with
I love what I do: that saying “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”? Well, THAT’S not really how I feel, but I do love my work!
I have cultivated a niche for myself: working with small organizations feels important for me and for them
I enjoy relationship building: networking, collaborating, mentoring- all make it easier for me to do my job well
I position myself as an expert: it certainly feels weird to say that sometimes, but it’s true,and I think it makes me credible
I am generous with my time and spirit: I am aware that many people took the time to help me while I was building my career and my business, and I try to do the same
I am confident: you have to believe in yourself to “sell” yourself
I come from a place of caring: I have compassion for others, and for myself
I will share more from my presentation in future posts. Enjoy, and start 2019 balanced!
