Chuck Bass Ruined My Life

So, I've found Gossip Girl. Yes, I know, I know...where have I been?! I'm not really a fan of these types of shows but one rainy day, I turned on Netflix, Gossip Girl was there so I thought I'd give it a try.

I WAS HOOKED. Why didn't anyone tell me about this before?!

When I discover a TV show, I tend to binge watch but this thing has 7 series for me to catch up on.

Chuck Bass was ruining my life. I was watching Gossip Girl when I could have been using my time better in my business.

This is the thing you need to watch out for when you are a business owner, YOU manage your time and there is nobody there to give you poke when you are slacking off.

So, I took a day off away from Chuck this week, sat in my favourite eatery, had a HUGE coffee and read.

I removed myself from my distraction and went with a book and a notebook.

For me, reading is where I can learn how to grow my business, get inspiration from thought-leaders and really just take time to think about what is next for The Female Mogul.

There was an exercise in the book. A pretty simple one. I just had to answer two questions:

1. What did I do and

2. How do I add value

This is what came out:

What did I do:

- I'm a thought provoker

- I'm a disruptor

- I'm an idea generator

- I'm f*cking awesome

- I help ambitious women TRANSFORM their careers and LAUNCH successful businesses

The How Do I Add Value:

- I show women what's possible

- I help them think out of the box with regard to their skills & expertise

- I show & teach clients how to then make that into their business

- I give them the tools they need to make this their reality

This may seem a pretty, simple kinda thing for someone who already has a business but I'd never actually written it down since my business model had changed.

Want to know what happened next? I felt at one with my business. I understood my value. I understood the difference I can make to peoples lives.

All through the power of writing it down and putting myself in a new setting.

What I do is LIFE CHANGING.

You want to start a business - I'm there for you

You don't know where to start - I'll help you

You don't know how to monetise your skills, passions and experiences - *big wave*, I'm here to show you how

What IMPACT do you want to have? What do you WANT to do in life? Hint: Whatever it is, it's POSSIBLE.

Chuck is now relegated to Saturday mornings only. #sozbabes but I got an empire of my own to build.

Much love & coffee,
Dee
