To start this one off though, I do have to talk about me! It almost warrants a whole other post, so I'll try and keep it brief - but I have to tell you that I LOVE being an entrepreneur!
It's about freedom and the same time control. It's knowing that for every ounce of effort you put in, you're getting something personally out of it. It's the thrill of chase, the magic of adventure and the thrill of the unknown.
Don't get me wrong though, it's darn hard too. It's long hours, self-doubt, financial insecurity and tough decision-making to name but a few. And when, like me, you're a business of ONE, then it can be a bit lonely too. When there are choices to be made, you don't have a team around you to share opinion.
It's why I join Entrepreneur networks, devour business books and follow the goings on of those who inspire me - my entrepreneurial heroes whose determination to succeed, drive and creativity lift me from those moments when I fear I can't achieve.
Beth Nicholls and Rachael Taylor are two such ladies. I first came across Beth when she ran the Do What You Love retreat last May and I met Rachael there. Since then between them these ladies have run numerous successful online courses (sometimes together), collaborated with more of my heroes (Kelly Rae Roberts), moved to Japan (Beth), appeared in books, won awards, appeared in magazines, been interviewed here there and everywhere, given lectures and generally been a guiding light of entrepreneurial inspiration for those that believe that you really can do what you love for life and for your living.
And now... they have launched a new magazine that is quite possibly the most beautiful I have ever seen!
