My husband recently look a workshop for his massage therapy business about raising prices, hosted by Annette Montgomery, who does business coaching for massage therapists. (It was a great class from what I heard – one that any small business owner could probably use!)
Last year, I worked with Terry Bateman as a business & life coach – he is to photography as Annette is to massage therapists! 😉 His coaching changed how I look at my work, and was so valuable in pivoting to my sabbatical.
In a follow-up newsletter, Annette talks about how she uses guiding words as a simpler alternative to resolutions.
I love this.
Each year, I go through a process of setting intentions, goals and workplans. I picked this up from my time in the Corporate world. My process has simplified over the years – I realize now how much time can we wasted in process, overthinking, shooting for perfection.
My goal now is to keep this to a one-pager.
I’m good-ish at this.
But what about narrowing this to 3-5 words?!! WHHHAATT?!?!
Wait. Looking back to next year, I did this without knowing it! My words for last year were: BE, FEEL, LIVE, LOVE, CREATE
So in keeping with KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), my Guiding Words for this year are:
BeGuiding Words coaching tool – from Annette Montgomery
Thank you Terry and Annette for guiding other creative and healing entrepreneurs.
Thanks for listening.
Keep telling the story
