Passion Noodle: Tiny Shifts Can Lead to Big Changes

Rather than thinking you have to make a major life change, listen in to how making small changes can impact your thinking.

Passion Noodle: Find Your “Tribe”

Today’s Passion Noodle was actually recorded from the road yesterday (hence the quality). Don’t worry I had my hands on the wheel…

If you feel isolated or that you don’t have the support of people who encourage your entrepreneurial dreams and want to help or at least see you succeed, take 3 minutes now to listen in.

Who did I meet at the Women Business Owners meeting?

Like I said in the podcast, there are a few REALLY interesting people who for different reasons I’ll introduce to you later.  For example, one is still working out a few kinks on her website and I would rather give her some good buzz when she’s in a better position to take advantage of it… the other one… well, let’s just say, stay tuned 😉

Two of the enterprising business owners are both profiting from their creative passions — but in different ways.  Amy Woolf is a color consultant. She works with home-dwellers and businesses to select the perfect colors for them. How fun!

 If you have an eye for color then get find your tribe at the International Association of Color Consultants at http://www.iaccna.com/  

Linda Warren is a quilter with multiple income streams. One is teaching. Obviously there’s a market out there because when she held an open house recently over 50 people showed up! Can you say “tribe!” Check out her site at www.lindawarrendesigns.com

The best part of this event for me — besides the speaker — was having the opportunity to help some local small business owners to think bigger about their business… or connecting them with resources… or generally brainstorming some marketing ideas people seemed to find helpful. Helping others is good for the soul — and energizing.

Resolve today to take a small step to find your tribe. And to borrow from the famous JFK refrain , ask not what other profit from your passion seekers can do for you, ask what you can do for your fellow profit from your passion seekers.

What are YOU noodling about today? Love to hear from you!


Passion Noodle: Tuning In To Your Passion

 In today’s 3-minute Passion Noodle you’ll learn a simple technique for tuning in to your passion. Tomorrow I’ll share another quick tip for discovering what you love to do and how to profit from your passion.

Not only can you profit from the things you love to do… you can make a difference too. This morning I saw this great story on ABC’s Good Morning America about how a choreographer with NO medical background what-so-ever used ballet to help a man with cerebral palsy to transform his body.

If I had a passion for dancing and children I would be all over this story to see how I could reach out to this niche and make a living while making a difference.

Don’t have a medical degree? Remember, neither did this man’s teacher. What she had was a passion for dancing and the determination to share what she knew with someone else and a willingness to learn along the way.

Here’s the link to the article but be sure to watch the video too: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/HealthyLiving/odds-dancing-cerebral-palsy/story?id=9596192
