You may have been wondering why is LowellAnn doing this Mindset Monday? Well partly its because I have committed to participating in a Plus Your Business movement that has the goal of making Mondays the best day of the week for entrepreneurs.
And partly it’s because I want to connect with as many #solopreneurs as I can because that’s the group I love to assist. This is my answer to “Why do I do what I do?”
Recently, I stumbled on some discussion around Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, a book by Simon Sinek and I realized that many solopreneurs have not clarified their answer to that question “Why do I do what I do?”
So I sat right down and did some thinking about my business. Here is what I recorded. I thought you might enjoy knowing this about me:
* I am proving that you can carry on in business as you age, so long as you do what you love.
* I love learning new things. You can’t stay in business without staying on the leading edge.
* I love to share what I have learned and I have learned a lot.
* Income from a business helps too. This is not central to why I do what I do, but it is critical.
Your Monday Challenge is to take a few minutes to answer that question. Write down your answers so that you can come back to them periodically. No doubt it will take a few reviews to get them so that they feel absolutely right for you.
This Mindset Monday post is presented especially for solopreneurs

In my workstyle-lifestyle coaching work I love helping solopreneurs find direction, stay motivated and build systems that both support and promote their business. One support that I like to emphasize for them is the Google experience. Two great places to begin are my Weekly Being Your Own CEO Success Circle and The Portable Business Coach (Now titled “Solopreneur Evaluation Tool” – a tool that will tell you where you need to put more time and energy)
