YES – it’s true! I’m launching Kate’s Take: The EntrepreneurOnFire Audio Blog :)
It feels really awesome to “type” that out loud, and within a couple of weeks, you’ll also hear me say it on the mic.
Why an audio blog?
I want to grow my audience, but I don’t know how.
I want to launch a podcast, but I don’t know where to start.
I want to build a website, but it’s too difficult to do it on my own.
I want to create my own business, but I don’t have the time.
I’ve never been much of a science person – it’s just so concrete.
I don’t like concrete.
Last week I was hanging out in our Fire Nation Elite Private Facebook group, and I decided to do something that I haven’t done before: I wrote a post that said:
“Hey Elites! Just wondering what I can help you with today. Do you have a question, a struggle, or 1 thing that’s holding you back right now that I can help with?”
When I was in high school I was a triathlete, and it was pretty awesome.
My parents were super proud of me – for several reasons – but one of those reasons was probably because of all the time and money they’d spent “grooming” me for sports as a kid. It worked!
I know I’m not the only person this happens to:
You’re on a run listening to a podcast, or just letting your mind wander; or you’re in the shower, and you start brainstorming ideas for your business; or you’re at a conference listening to someone speak about a topic you’re very interested in…
In any case, something pops into your mind and you think, “Wow, this is a REALLY great idea!”
What comes next?
I was talking to a good friend of mine the other night; his name is Andres. We were having a conversation about the things that make us uncomfortable – either physically or mentally or otherwise. You know: running 26 miles in a marathon, getting up on stage and speaking in front of a hundred people… that sort of stuff.
Andres started telling me about a recent experience he had with meditation, and this is how he described it:
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.
I love this quote from Abraham Lincoln because it gets down to the very essence of smart preparation and planning.
