If you’ve been following me along my doubt-filled and a-little-bit-confused journey – first of all hi!!! and thanks, so great to have you here in my space. Second of all, I want to say:
You can do it* too! And you don’t need a freakin’ fancy plan to do it…
*whatever that it might be
Don’t get me wrong, reading up on marketing and business tips fascinates me, even as a do-good, nature-loving, ecotourism promoting, yoga doing, boho loving entrepreneur.
I love business. I don’t know how to do it all yet, but it’s just fascinating.
But at the same time, it’s all so (over)whelming. I feel like my record is on repeat because every post I write it seems like I’m whelmed by something.
Like I said many times before – why don’t I learn? – I keep on comparing my first baby steps with more experienced female entrepreneur’s mega steps.
That’s why I love what Ash recently said on her blog the Middle Finger Project that I’d like to share with you who’s starting that business (social or otherwise) – a peace of mind feeling just came over me when she told me that:
“You don’t need fancy marketing, to begin with. The most important thing is genuine enthusiasm and belief in what you are doing.”
“Just start talking everywhere.”
Well hunty, I do love to talk! Let me loose at a party, and you won’t have a moment of quiet. Sorry, NOT sorry.
I finally get that this blog, is my space, I can develop myself here, I can be myself here, I can talk about anything I value here: my story, yoga, hiking, my research on ecotourism, my business, my struggle with believing in myself.
ANYTHING I feel enthusiastic about.
You might like it or not. Or you might think damn that’s not professional of her. But all I can do is be myself and show you what I stand for. If I struggle writing about my expertise and I share that with you then that’s my truth.
It doesn’t have to be perfect – as long as it’s from the heart.
All I hope is that it helps you as much as it does me.
Now go and do it!
