In the six-ish weeks since I last posted, lots has happened in my world to cause it to turn pretty much upside down--at least professionally. Personally, things couldn't be more serene, and I'm loving that.
But professionally, it's all akimbo. That's not a bad thing, exactly...but it is, for lack of a better adjective, disruptive to my otherwise serene life.
I'm reinventing again--something I've done several times before. It's not scary, it's not even especially difficult. It's just a lot of work, with most of that work being internal and exploratory in nature.
As I've been thinking about what I want to do, "multifarious entrepreneur" seems apt, as I want to do a variety of things. But I don't think that's something people buy.
I don't for a moment wonder why people become "The ______ (fill in the blank with a noun) diva," or "queen." It's far easier to promote yourself if you have one thing on which to hang your hat.
And I guess that, for the most part, for the past 14 years I've been some version of that with regard to Virtual Assistance. But it's never been the whole of me. At the very least I've also written and coached. Sometimes I've consulted, too. And led retreats. And taught. And this past year, I did all of that plus interviews, 30 Day Projects, and another five or ten things.
And why? Because I'd become mind-numbingly bored and lazy if I hung my hat on one thing and put all of my time, energy, and focus in that.
I read their blogs, those queens and divas, and I honestly don't know how they talk about their one thing, all day, every day, for years and years without growing tired of it, or simply running out of things to say. I run out of things to say all the time.
So, yeah, I wonder how they do it. And I wonder if I'd do it if I could. I'm not so sure I would. Would you?
