My year…..The stepping stones were placed nicely in 2010, the year before. Everything to a plan, found my first Master Mind group through Sue and found support I needed to confirm what I was doing, away I can fly. I put on a permanent manager, trained 3 new staff, opened number 5&6 studio locations and injected a heap of corporate ideas that I thought would be right at the time…… Meanwhile in my personal life ( I do forget they are separate! )
With the downturn in building industry and my husbands new business only just kicking off we made the unpopular decision for John to leave me with the 3 kids, while he travelled away for work. I ran the business & worked in the business leading to me leaning on staff more than I would have liked in their first year. The consequences of this? The power shifts. My intentions became focused on their perceptions and ideas of what would keep them happy so I could get through my year. My decisions became based on what they needed. Oops!
Lesson 1:MY business will not run without it being MY ideals. It will never work out that way. Thank Goodness it Didnt actually take me long to figure this out. Perhaps thats due to the things I've learnt at master Minds group. Meanwhile, The business has had a very successful year, I got into the finals for Most Outstanding Business Person, the kids survived, my marriage stronger if anything! Karen from Positive People advices me: "Life isn't about how to survive the storm, it is about how to dance in the rain" - this I have forgotten ALL year.
I am proud of surviving this storm/tsunami of a year and thank god I dance for a living!!!!! Next year is going to be amazing with what I've just been through. Right now though…I need a holiday!
