100 Chats About Messy Meaningful BusinessesFor Business Owners Ready & (Re)claim Their Unique Voice In The Marketplace.
In April 2019 I hosted The Messy Meaningful Business Project – a 30 day interactive conversation about what it means to reject the ‘shiny perfection’ of much of the online business space and instead embrace the earthy, less polished reality truth of what it really takes to grow a meaningful, sustainable business.
The conversations and contributions were rich and fortifying. Folks came together and shared how it is 100% possible to build something with meaning in a way that is sustainable:
- Energetically (e.g. doesn’t exhaust you),
- Ethically (e.g. doesn’t rely on sleaze, manipulation or hard selling)
- Emotionally (e.g. does fulfil and nurture you and doesn’t require you to sacrifice your joy and nourishment)
- Financially (e.g. makes you a consistent income you can thrive on)
As part of my ongoing work, I want to talk to 100 entrepreneurs about how they want to carve their own messy, meaningful path.
What are the points of tension?
What areas do you struggle with around visibility, sharing your opinions, taking up space and letting your brilliance shine?
Maybe it’s in sales and asking for payment for your skills. Maybe it’s around showing up consistently on social media. Perhaps it’s around sharing your truth, passion, and expertise.
I want to understand how we hold ourselves back so that we can rise.
The better we understand the challenges we face as entrepreneurs, (especially as values driven, squidgy hearted introvert types) the better placed we are to overcome them.
We can create products, programs, services, business models marketing plans that overcome rather than feed into the problem.
As part of our chat, I’ll give you some on the spot coaching around a challenge you’re facing in growing your business.
Plus we get to hang out for 30 minutes and get to know one another a little bit. No sales pitch. No agendas. Just collaboration, conversation and a cuppa*.
