Today I wanted to share with you a bit of the back story and the journey behind the Artful Business Conference. Where the idea came from, what where the first steps I took to making it a reality and more importantly the 5 Business Lessons I have learnt along the way.

Here are the five business lessons I have learnt

But let me assure you there have been thousands of lessons and I am still learning every single day!

  1. Know your numbers, or whatever is your biggest concern in your business – don’t hide from it, shine the flash light right on that sucker and get to know it in intimate detail!
  2. Doing the best you can with what you have and what you know is all you can do – STOP being so hard on yourself and your mistakes.
  3. Fear and excitement feel pretty much the same – the most helpful lie I regularly tell myself.
  4. Ask for support – stop trying to be superwomen and let people HELP – they want to help!
  5. The work is sometimes BIGGER than you. Embrace it. Lean in. Don’t be scared to do the work you have been CALLED to do. The world needs it.

I’d love to hear what work YOU have been called to do and if you fight that calling?
