All right, so I obviously didn’t spend a lot of time writing that title. But, there are some things I’d like to share with you and I figured the best way to do that is to just tell you about them.
Lift Off Retreat
First, my good friend and business partner Charlie Gilkey and Pamela Slim are doing their second Lift Off Retreat. If you’ve been wanting to connect with other people in person to get some support with your business, this might be exactly what you’re looking for. They have packed this trip full of super-charged coaching and support from people that really get what you’re doing.
Last time, the retreat was held in Arizona. The one in a few days will be up in Portland, Oregon. If you think you could use some one-on-one help and a jump-start to your business, this retreat will do that for you. Last I checked there are only 7 spots left, so you might want to submit your application while there’s still time.
Small ways to make a big difference
My friend Raam Dev has released a free document called “Small Ways to Make a Big Difference.” It features 40 bloggers and influencers that answer the question “What small things can I do to make a difference in the world?” Yes, it features yours truly.
But I’m not just sharing it here to promote myself. I think there’s an important message behind this that we often overlook. Sometimes we don’t need to do big, epic things to change the world. Sometimes just being encouraging, being mindful, or practicing kindness is enough.
It’s the same with our own lives, too. Sometimes what can make a big difference is something really small, like meditating for 10 minutes in the morning, drinking a smoothie every day, or doing something that you’re afraid to do.
If you’re interested in learning some small things you can do to make a big difference, here’s where you can download the free ebook.
Discover your purpose, and sustain yourself and others with it
A lot of people struggle with this elusive idea of purpose. It seems so big and scary. And we avoid trying to figure it out because we’re afraid we’ll screw it up, or that we’ll confine ourselves by having a narrowly defined purpose.
The truth is, purpose doesn’t have to be either of those things. You really can’t mess up your purpose (you can always change it, right?), and purpose should be something empowering and expanding. Not something that restricts you. If it is making you feel confined, it’s probably not the right purpose anyway.
So, how do you find your purpose? And how can you support yourself while following it?
My friend Aaron and I will be talking about that next Tuesday on a special webinar dedicated to this subject. There is no-cost to join in, and if you can’t make it to the live version, we’ll be sending out a recording.
If you think you could use some help with this, you can learn more about it here.
So, that’s what’s going on with me. What’s new in your world?
