The entrepreneurial journey unfolds in mysterious ways. I admit, I have been fighting the mystery. I want a clear cut road map with guaranteed destinations, an expectation belonging to an amateur mindset. An epiphany unlocked a pro mindset. I will embrace the mystery!
Flown The Coop
Flown The Coop closed the doors to regular hours on Saturday, August 4th. Big dreams die hard. Change can be heartbreaking.
I will continue pursuing creative classes on a variety of topics. I will host an occasional event, like our BIG Backyard Bash on September 28th. (why not???? we have a fun space for a party!)
Jeff and I are talking to contractors about our garden guest house. I have dreamed of this project for almost four years. Stayed tuned for progress updates as the project comes together.
I have operated in survival mode for too long, trying to make sense of it all. Thank God for authors who speak right into our souls at the perfect time. I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I reread Turning Pro by Steven Pressfield. This little book is incredibly insightful into an amateur mindset and a pro mindset. Funny how all the books I’ve read lately are all pointing to mindset. Mindset by Carol S. Dweck, PhD is a great resource for learning the difference between fixed and growth mindset. I loved Girl Wash Your Face, by Rachel Hollis. Rachel shares raw life experience in an attempt to get her readers to identify lies and create a positive mindset.
I had an epiphany reading Turning Pro. I am a Networker. Recognizing this truth about me is the moment I “Turned Pro.” My amateur mindset has been running from this gift. It seems skeevy. It has a ton of bad connotations. Entrepreneurs survive by networking themselves with people. I believe that I have a gift for connecting people and promoting ideas I care about. I have the gift of hospitality which is a really handy skill for a Networker.
Hi! My name is Tiffany. I am a Networker. The best epiphany ever!
I can’t quite put my finger on how to define my new role as a Networker. I am embracing the mystery.
Letting go of Flown The Coop retail was my first hard step. Pros do hard things.
Stepping into the mystery
I will step into the mystery by working on business developments that promote my passion for wellness and the pursuit of a life well lived. All of my projects require me to learn new skills and get out of my comfort zone.
I am building a team with Young Living. I adore this company and their commitment to bringing a wellness mindset to every home. On top of the business opportunity, I am impressed with the company’s world wide philanthropy opportunities. It makes my heart sing!
I am also building a team with Scout & Cellar Wine, another company with high standards and a commitment to wellness. Working with Scout & Cellar is an exciting journey into the clean crafted wine industry. I am learning to savor good food and great wine. I have inhaled my food without thought for far too long.
Gadabout Gals ~ The launching of Gadabout Gals, our lifestyle travel site was a true labor of love with my favorite gal pals and is a collaboration made in heaven. The three of us truly love to travel finding adventure in excursions, destinations and great flavors. We are using our combined influence (networking) to promote our experiences.
Clear as mud
I have two choices
- I can control the future with fear (amateur)
- I can embrace mystery as a beautiful reality.
I will put in the effort and allow the mystery do it’s thing.
I will focus on the only thing I have control of, my mindset.
I will let go and fly free!
And the birds fluttered around her writing “YES” in the sky
From the moment we met I knew you were a Networker! I am thrilled that your positivity is creating new paths for you. I love your courage!
