Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Now back to work. I always like this special moment of the year: a whole new year in front of me, fresh, full of hope but also challenging. Will I reach my goals?
Every year I set my goals. Being on my entrepreneurial journey means that I want to see where I’m heading. I want to know if I’m taking the right steps.
For me it’s also very important to feel that I’m not alone on my journey. I know I need people around me who support me. Who cheer with me when I reach a goal. Who pick me up when I feel lost.
How about you? Do you know who will support you this year on your entrepreneurial journey?
Probably you’ll think first of your beloved ones: your partner, your kids, your parents, your friends. Believe me, you will need them. You will need their love. But they are not always your best supporters when it comes down to building your business.
Your partner, your kids, your parents, your friends, they love you. Which also means that they want you to be safe. They will sometimes not know that you have to take some risks. That being on your entrepreneurial journey is challenging you to get out of your comfort zone.
Perhaps you’re starting your business or private practice this January (I know some of you do!) and you’re feeling scared if you’ll get your first client. Perhaps you want to quit your job but you feel uncertain if your business will bring in enough money to feed your family. Perhaps your revenue goal is to do your first 6 figures this year and you know you’ll have to stretch yourself and you’re not certain if this is possible.
When it’s time to dig into something big you’ll feel the desire to get support, feedback, even collaboration and sometimes a good laugh, from like minded, entrepreneurial social workers who get it. Who will encourage you to keep focused and hold on to your dream. Who’ll give you hands on tips. The A’s to your Q’s. The shoulder to cry on.
You need the right people at the coffee machine.
You need the right mentor in your contact list.
More than 1000 like minded Social Workers are here for you in our Hangout Social Souls >>>. To support you, to cheer with you, to encourage you on your entrepreneurial journey.
