Going through the journey of becoming an entrepreneur is and has been an interesting one. I’ve gone through so many phases. I’ve listened to many people who want to give advice. That includes people on the internet, Facebook and YouTube. I’ve joined many Facebook groups and subscribed to several email lists. At this point I have a pretty good overview of what that’s all about. I thought I’d share my experiences with you.
First, I’ve definitely learned a lot! One of the things I practice in “Conscious Living” is to pay attention to the people that cross my path during each day. Whether it’s in person or virtually. If I feel drawn to check someone out, I follow that guidance and look into it. Sometimes it turns out to be that I love most of what that person has to say, sometimes there’s just a nugget of something for me. I feel like no matter what, there’s always something to learn. It might even be about learning something that I don’t want to do.
As I’m writing this I’m laughing to myself because the metaphor of dating is popping into my head. I love a good metaphor! : – )) When I first started dating I went out with lots of different people. That’s how I learned what I liked and what I didn’t like in a relationship. It seemed that after a while I got quicker at discerning if the person was what I considered a good match for me.
It feels the same way on the entrepreneurial journey. You want to learn from people you’re attracted to that can offer guidance, people that spark new ideas for you. Then you want to find people that are attracted to you so that you can offer guidance and spark new ideas for them.
Here’s a loop that I realized I was caught in for a while. Everybody is trying to tell you how to do it. They’re sharing how they did it. What I finally learned and what is important to know is that we all have our own way of doing things. We are all unique and how it plays out is different for each one of us. There’s no book or person that explains who you are and the person you want to become. That person you want to become has not been created yet and it’s up to you to create that version of yourself.
When you decide for yourself that you’re not going to wait anymore for something on the outside to change and you’re going to bloom from the inside into the person you want to be, you will feel the lights go on inside of you.
Did you ever hear the saying “it takes a village”? Well, it does! It takes the information you’ve gathered on the outside plus the work you do on the inside to equal how you want to experience yourself from this moment forward.
If you’re looking to get started, I bet this would help! I am offering you my video course called “28 Days to Conscious Living”. For 28 days you’ll receive a short video (about a minute) each day where I offer an idea of something to practice. Trust me, just doing this will give you a big boost in the direction you’re headed.

And, of course, I’m always available for a 1:1 session where I can intuitively give you guidance to take you up the ladder towards your amazing self. Just email me at Sheree@ShereeMaree.com to set that up.
As always. . . .
Sending you lots of love and big hugs,
