When was the last time that you did something bold? Something completely unexpected and out of your comfort zone? If it’s been a while, or if you cannot remember the last time you made a bold decision, now is the time to make it happen!I have recently made two bold steps myself, and I can tell you that I have no regrets surrounding either of these actions. The first bold step I am referring to was my decision to be a full-time, self-employed consultant. I had previously handled marketing duties for a local restoration company in addition to my consulting business, but now I am all in working for myself. This has been the second best decision I have ever made. I do set my own schedule; I am responsible for finding my own clients, booking my own speaking opportunities, and managing my own business. I love what I do and I wake up every day excited to get started! Can you say that about your career? If not, maybe it’s time for a bold decision of your own.
The second bold step is the decision to fire my hair! You read it correctly, I have fired my hair! It had been abandoning my head and retreating for years, so I as the owner of the head, I decided to fire it! The hair gene came from the Lusher side of my family, and let’s just say we are not known for old age and a head full of hair This again, was a great decision for me. I feel better about myself and my appearance and everyone has accepted the new, bold look. I have even received compliments on the shape of my head! That is a new one! I also removed the goatee, so the grey hair is gone from my head. Bonus: looking younger!What does firing my hair have to do with business or more specifically the industry in which I work? Simple: as a small business owner, making the decision to incorporate a social media plan into your business is a bold step. For many business owners, it requires a leap of faith into a medium they are not familiar with. But, as with my career move and my hair, taking bold actions can and will be rewarding if you approach it with careful planning and implementation as well as partnering with the right consultant or team.So, how can you be bold today, this week, this month, or this year? What bold steps can you take? Let me know, and let me know what you think of my healthy scalp!
