It's been 4 weeks since the What's Next retreat I blogged about a few months ago. I have accomplished more to grow my business in the last 4 weeks than I have in the last 4 years. I'm not exaggerating. At this retreat, hosted by the amazing Stacy Brice of AssistU, I was able to go away for 3 days and focus on my business without interruptions or distractions. I gained clarity on where I wanted to go and how I was going to get there. I created a detailed plan including all of the baby steps to get me from where I was to where I wanted to be. I am moving forward for the first time in a long time. I am inspired, motivated, focused and productive.
The biggest lesson I learned from this experience is that in order to learn and grow, I needed to step out of what was comfortable and safe. I needed to explore, experiment, share and take risks. I would not be where I am if I had stayed in my cozy little office. I could not see what I was missing. I needed a change of scenery and that's exactly what I got. Now my basement office has a corner office view. Stay tuned for a new website, a new blog and a new vision.
