Hang Your Stars
Several years ago my husband made me a fabulous colorful star light fixture to hang in my craft room at home. When we moved to Hood River, I didn’t have a craft room so I wasn’t sure what to do with it. He asked me if I was going to hang it in my office. I hadn’t really considered that because it is cheery and fun and I was afraid that my leader and business owner clients would see it and think that I don’t take my work seriously or their businesses seriously.
After some reflection on my own business I realized that while serious and important, my approach to coaching and consulting to small businesses does have an element of fun. I am silly and cheery and I’m not going to apologize for it. I think that style helps to make this work accessible to people who could benefit from but don’t have a background in Organizational Psychology.
There may be some prospective clients who see the stars and make a judgement that I’m not a fit for them. They are probably right.
My advice for the day is to honor what makes you uniquely you. This will resonate with the clients who are the best fit for you anyway.
