It is my mission is to misfit enable entrepreneurs.
For me it is all about inspiring as many people as possible to listen to their gut and follow their intuition!!
So, I’m asking people who I think are great to answer my 8 in 8
– Eight quick fire questions, in eight minutes, not too much thinking – straight from their hearts.
Be sure to check back every other week for a little more quick fire inspiration, I update them every other weekend… (why not sign up to my mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out?)
1, 2, 3 GO!
1. What does being an Entrepreneur mean to you?
Freedom. To do what I want, to solve problems that I see, to make the world a better place and do it my way. To learn and to grow organically… To be a free range woman, grabbing the world by the horns and making it my OWN! To lead a tribe, a posse of people who are all standing up and breaking free – together.
2. What did you want to be when you grew up?
Independent. Seriously that’s all I really wanted… I wanted to enjoy life, live without struggle, never be under anyone’s thumb, and change the world in the ways I believed were important. Now I help others do the same, and it’s MAGIC.
3. When did you decide to be self employed?
When I started my first job. Night stock at a grocery store for $9-something an hour with no autonomy or creativity… #itsucked. I started writing copy freelance later that year.
4. Who inspires you?
Everyone who has ever seen something broken about the world, and instead of bitching, decided to go fix it. The bigger the problem, the more inspiring their efforts to solve it.
5. What is non negotiable in your schedule?
Christmas. I occasionally do calls in the afternoons, I sometimes work evenings and weekends on blogs and things… I never, ever, EVER even check my phone on Christmas. I’m not religious, either. It’s just sacred family time. <3
6. What makes you feel ARGH!?
People who spend decades struggling to see their genius, taking their magic for granted when it is right there in front of them. Like my dad, who has been toiling away for 30 years on “starting his own business” in every field except the one he belongs in. He’s been through homelessness, depression, loss of a parent, disability, cancer (x2), strokes (x2), poverty… I could go on. And he keeps going. That man needs to be an author, speaker, and visionary to help others persevere… And he keeps getting stuck on get rich quick schemes. #headdesk
7. What do you do that helps you to feel more AHHH!?
Watching (or hearing) women’s eyes light up when we create that magic something that they’re meant to do. When they find the purpose of their business, the programs fall into place, the marketing gets easy, and you can almost hear the FIRE in their voice. It makes me want to fist bump all day long.
8. What would you like your epitaph to read?
She came… She saw… She f*cked up the place, and we’re all better for it.
