Risky Business

The day you decided to start your very own business, you decided to take a risk.  I guess without really knowing it you continue to do just that – for the company you just gave your life too.

Just recently I’ve been faced with something some may term as “a fork in the road”. I was reviewing my business and wondering if I should continue to grow on the pathway things were moving or make a change. I’ve been in business for 3.5 years now and finally I felt like I was making some traction. You know when you start out in business people tell you it isn’t going to be easy, and it’s not. Some tell you it takes years before you actually get anywhere. I guess they were trying to prepare me for a long road, it takes a while before you become successful, they said. But, what is successful? How do you define that? Perhaps that’s another topic I can write about some other time, but what I really want to speak of today is taking risks and deciding which way to take the business.

I sat on this for quite a few weeks. Things were progressing, I was taking on more clients but I felt like something wasn’t quite right. I just wasn’t sure I was growing in the direction I wanted to go.

So, after many discussions with my husband – my sounding board, I thought it was time for me to get a coach to help me decide what I actually needed to do and help me in the decision process of what road to take. I highly recommend it!

I’m excited to report I turned to Edward Zia, the crazy Persian as he calls himself. I knew he would push me to my limits and that’s OK.

In business we continue to take risks, it’s just a matter of how calculated and educated your decisions are. I’m super excited to be on my new road and can’t wait for what’s to come.
