Just Start


STARTWhat happens if you decide not to “Start Now?” Which of the three if not all three of the following is stopping you from Starting…FEAR…PAIN…DOUBT? If you don’t start somewhere…sometime…then you won’t do or achieve anything that you want to do and achieve!

There are a lot of individuals waiting on you to start, because they’re in desperate need to hear what you have to say and have what you have to offer in order to become the best that they can become. YOUR voice just might be the voice they need to hear from because you can reach them on the level they need to reached. BUT if you don’t at least “Start” then you’ll never know how far you can go, how many lives you can/will change, and/or what a major success you can/will become.

This is one of the many reasons why having an Accountability Partner is important to have in your entrepreneurial life whether you’re sitting on the sidelines trying to figured out where to start, have already started and now stuck, or you feel like you’ve gone as far as you feel you can go and no one wants to hear what you have to say.

If any of the above is where you are including not have started yet, then you want to be on the Accountability teleseminar call with myself the Accountability Queen to Entrepreneur Women and Bonnie Pond the Bahooda Kicker for Women who want more out of Life as we discuss “End Your Business Struggles with Accountability” on this Thursday at 12pm CST by clicking the following link – http://join.freeconferencecall.com/881-718-971. I look forward to having you join us on our FREE 30 minute call!

Accountability Brings Me to My Center

For those that are already GYP followers you know I’ve been talking about and have been in the process of making a change and shift in my business model. I don’t believe I would have had the courage to do it without my Accountable Partner (AP), Bonnie Pond.

Making changes, being honest with yourself and to your business is not always easy to do, due to so many questions that arises and the many different directions you can go and as solo-entrepreneurs we can definitely find those different paths to go down :).

What made me chose the new direction of accountability is I finally found the true understanding, meaning and importance of accountability for my own home based business AND I realized that as women solo-entrepreneurs we need this crucial piece especially in our home based business lives. I’ve learned we’re good at having accountability for all the other parts of our lives, but when we decided to go into business for ourselves we didn’t think about needing this piece and if we did think about it we didn’t understand what this piece look like and how to go about putting it into practice.

With that said, this is what made me make this business shift along with knowing that I want to produce more in my business for this upcoming year and help other women solo-entrepreneurs do the same. I’ll be spending the rest of this year making this transition and honing in on my center :).

If you are interested in hearing the replays and/or want to be apart of our lives shows please email me at karen@giveyourselfpower.com. Put in the subject line: “accountability teleseminar sign up” and I’ll be happy to send you the next link to join us on our next 30 minutes show that will be Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 12pm CST.

I look forward to continuing connecting with those that are my followers, connecting and possible working with others in the near future.

Young Entrepreneur 2

I haven’t had an opportunity to read any entrepreneurial/business books this month, been busy reading/studying some spiritual books to improve my own life and for a wonderful Bible class I’m taking at my church :). So replacing this month’s BOM with a weekly blog. Found another precocious, but successful young entrepreneur on Yahoo Finance. What caught my attention with this young entrepreneur is that he’s created a business from what most would consider to be an old fashion style. I so love that this young man followed his on creative style and not let anyone distract him from it. Just like Maya Penn in my last blog on April 22, 2014 entitled, Young Entrepreneur, this young man has created a profitable business from his desire and passion. Remember you’re NEVER too YOUNG or too OLD to create YOUR own business from your desires, passions, and love. Because It’s about Your Dreams…Your Passion….Your Life!!

Young Entrepreneur

For those that have been following me any length of time you know how much I’m passionate about entrepreneurship. With that said, I found this TEDTalk about a young entrepreneur that I wanted to share with you that I know you will find this 7 minute video encouraging, motivating, powerful, and worth the time to watch as I did.
