I’ve been negligent again, of this space…

So much going on…and I’m not disciplined enough yet to make it all work together. It’s not easy taming a creative mind. I’m getting a bit better every day though. I’m learning now to set goals and to break things down to step by step tasks. It’s agonizing. And necessary, nothing gets done when I have a thousand ideas written in my head with no plan to get them out. With no plan, that’s what happens, over and over again.

So now I have a plan.

Sort of.

Baby steps, right?

It begins tomorrow. Ready or not. Triumphant Tales.

But before I tell you about that (You’ll hear about it soooo much through the month of November, that you’ll appreciate the suspense…) let me go back and show you a bit of what I’ve been doing.

The biggest thing was my Top Guns presentation.

2015-10-01 05.07.05

I spent six weeks preparing for it. And in the end I still didn’t feel prepared enough. I didn’t feel my presentation was as strong as it could be.

But I did it!

I shared my equation for family peace outside of hushed whisperings between friends and allies. I shared part of my vision out loud and in public. With an audience.


It was recorded, but I haven’t been able to watch past the first 30 seconds. Maybe you’ll get further into it. If not, the end result was that the idea itself was well-received but there’d be research into seeing if there’s an existing app that could be licensed or bought.

I’ve joined two membership sites Leonie Dawson’s Shining Biz and Leslie Vernick’s CONQUER. I haven’t joined a membership program like this since I joined SoloMasterminds and I’m pretty sure that was 10 years ago already (if not more…it’s been a source of strength and inspiration for a great deal of my business journey. I still log in from time to time, but it doesn’t fit my everything the way it once did.

Okay, so that’s what I’ve been doing.

And I’ve also been working on Triumphant Tales, but I’ve been in a bit of a procrastination cycle with it. So I’ve decided that I’m going to start it raw and work to improve. Tomorrow.

No, I’m not procrastinating again.

Tomorrow is November.

November is Family Violence Awareness Month.

And my birthday month.

And Nanowrimo month.

So I might as well try and turn it into Triumph month too.

And so I will.

Stay tuned for the first brief episode of Triumphant Tales tomorrow.

Time to make it happen and not let the butterflies and fears. Time to stop worrying about what  people are going to think and do it anyway.
