Ive been seeing a small business consultant. In my quest to grow and expand I reached out for some help. Overall it has been GREAT, however there are a few things that arent sitting well with me. While this should probably be a blog post, my blog isnt set up yet and I need to get this off of my chest. My small business consultant (SBC) wants me to compare my company to other similar companies. I know this is common place for businesses, but I dont want to do it. My SBC also wants me to become an expert. I need to get a certificate or degrees or something so I can add letters at the end of my name. I dont know about everyone reading this, but I left high school behind a LONG time ago. The need to have myself validated by others who dont know me is tucked away with my zit cream, my mix tapes and my braces. What I do know is where this company is going. I am intimate with the integrity and love I place into every building block of this business. I know who I am and what I want. Maybe I am naïve, but I dont feel the need to create a false sense of self to prove to my clients that I am worthy. I think my product and myself do that every single day. I also dont wish to stare at my competition, longing to be like them or ripping their business to shreds. Their dream is not mine and mine is not theirs. End of story. My attitude will certainly not gain me any investors, but it will allow me to sleep at night. It also allows me to make decisions based on love and not out of fear. Because, I believe standing in the light and love of oneself is far more powerful than letters at the end of your signature.
