It was an honour and privilege to listen to some amazing speakers at the Women In Business Conference in Ottawa on March 11th, 2015 in Ottawa. All the speakers who have now reached a successful place in their businesses shared their experiences including the low times where they went broke but kept committed to that “thing” which called to their passion. A few of the key messages which I took away with me, which also ignited my passion again were:
a) Seek not yourself 100% in one day. Seek to improve yourself 1% per day for 100 days. This is the true path to self-mastery. Master Phil ( http://www.blackbeltleadership.com/)
b) Is what you are eating cleaning you or clogging you? Holly@wildcarrot.ca
c) You must be a dog with a bone. Grab hold of your author dream and don’t let anyone take it away from you. Persistence is Key. Peggy McColl, New York Times Best Seller, The Millionaire Author Mentor, The Best Seller Maker
d) Writing your book is 5% of the work done. 95% is marketing.
e) Sometimes, you just meet the right person who gives you a break! Never underestimate the power of simply meeting another human being. Sometimes you have to sort out the weeds but if you don’t put yourself out there, you will not know what is possible.
And best of all, I met with the great author Peggy McColl and I will be doing an interview with her this week. Isn’t that awesome!
Keep your dreams alive. Don’t give up – if it is planted deep within you – it must bloom some day with your persistence.
