I promised on Tuesday that I would show you some of the other stuff I was working on. I DID manage to finish the project I was hoping to, and I’m very excited (and slightly nervous) to show you!
As I mentioned in my birthday post, I’ve been working through the Right Brain Business Plan this month.
I’m working on Chapter Three, which is VERY work-intensive…lots of research and analysis and scariness. It started out with the construction of a Detective Bulletin Board, which is basically a HUGE collection of notes about myself, my business, and any businesses that I consider related to mine. This was the stumbling block that stopped my progress back in the spring, but this time I was ready for it. And here’s the result:
That was the really hard part. The rest of the chapter was synthesis and analysis and fun stuff. I ended up with two projects…what I call the Left-Brain Business Self-Portrait:
And the Right-Brain Business Self-Portrait:
A note on the woman in the AMAZING dress: one of the questions I had to answer for the Detective Bulletin Board was “If your business was a person, what would he/she be like?” And I answered all kinds of things about fabulous, colourful, flowing clothing, wild hair, total self-love, dancing all over the place…and then I found that photo. Thanks, Universe! Apparently my dream business is Jill Scott…who knew!
And here are a few detail shots in case you’re wondering what the hell the writing actually SAYS:
And there you have it! Chapter Three is almost complete!
If you’re starting a business, or thinking about starting one, I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Even though I’m not even halfway through the book, I feel SO much clearer on what I want to do. And I can tell that by the end I’ll know way more about HOW I want to do it and where to go next! AWESOME! SO worth the effort!
