In this article Kate Griffiths shows you how to reframe the challenges that life presents you and shares a tool that may help you turn your vision into reality. If you are a solopreneur then such challenges often come into focus much more sharply because there is just you, there is nowhere to run and hide. And yay for that! Every challenge is an opportunity to grow and reach your full potential.
On Friday, I went to an event with the intention of building a relationship with someone that a colleague had introduced me to and I thought that the presentations would be inspirational. There were some great speakers but what I had not realised was that it was an event that was hosted by the firm’s Muslim network so the attendees were predominantly Muslim. I was one of the few white people in the audience, which was rather a novel experience but took me back to my diversity days when this happened more often.
The main learning for me was the importance of preparation. It would have been helpful if I had found out more about the purpose of the event which would have given me the information to determine whether the event was the right one for me. Also as a foodie, I was starving by the end because it ran from 6-10pm and the organisers decided to serve only Danish pastries. Next time I will ask what food is on the menu and take a banana if there is nothing suitable. So more specifically how does this relate to turning your vision into reality?
