I haven’t written much here lately because I’ve been busy with a number of great clients, and also because I’m taking some time to step back and re-think how I offer my services.
The people I most enjoy working with are doing amazing things… some of you are leading social profits (aka nonprofits) that are doing much-needed work; some of you are writers and artists; some of you are therapists and healers.
For many of us, these are challenging economic times. I’ve heard from a number of people who would like to work with me (or other consultants who offer similar services) but that money is limited right now. I really want to find a way to support you—so I’m researching some new ways to work together that will be more affordable.
Some of these new forms might be group learning and coaching events, as well as tools that you can download and work with at your own pace (articles, e-books, etc.)
Here’s where you come in: The Survey
I’d like to invite you to help me in this process. I’ve created a short survey to help me better understand the kinds of tools I could create that might serve you. You can find the survey here.
Thank you for your interest in Five Directions and this blog — I look forward to continuing to connect with you!
And a p.s.
By the way, one resource that I’ve found incredibly helpful as I re-think my own business is a course called the Empire Building Kit, developed by writer and entrepreneur Chris Guillebeau. (Chris is a pretty unique guy. His mission is to live his own life to the fullest—his goal is to travel to every country in the world by the time he’s 35—and to help others do so as well.)
Chris has put together a collection of detailed case studies (in video as well as on print) and 365 daily lessons designed to help people build successful online businesses. If this is something you’re interested in doing, I can’t recommend the Empire Building Kit highly enough – I’m learning so much from it. (Full disclosure: I am in Chris’ affiliate program so if you do end up purchasing the EBK or any of the other excellent products on that website, I’ll receive a portion of the sale.)
