Why Do I Do What I Do?

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?”

Start With Why
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.

Greetings from LowellAnn,

In my workstyle-lifestyle coaching work I love helping solopreneurs find direction, stay motivated and build systems that both support and promote their business. A great place to begin is the Solopreneur Evaluation Tool that will tell you where you need to put more time and energy.
