Hello esteemed members of The Ville! It’s Lena – your new guest blogger.
I’ll be guest blogging here on a frequent, yet infrequent, basis. That’s fancy talk for – I don’t have a schedule and I’ll be posting about my journey whenever I feel like it. I believe in flexible structure (more on that in another post) so, this arrangement works for me.
So, here’s why I’ll be guest blogging on The Ville Blog:
Lately, I’ve been feeling really stifled. Stifled because I’ve wanted to write/share/vent about my wellness journey and what I’ve learned about personal development.
But, I am a social media consultant and strategist for
high-strung high-growth businesses (you know, blogging, podcasting and all that ‘stuff’) and the kinds of things I want to write about don’t really fit too well on my guest blogging spot at Lipsticking, or my Entrepreneur.com blog.
So, Cheryl and I decided that it would be a good thing for me to do here – on the The Ville blog.
As I mentioned, I’m an entrepreneur and about a year ago, I contacted Cheryl for coaching. She was warm, welcoming, funny, real and totally non-judgemental. I liked her immediately. What’s not to like??? That was a year ago. At the time, I committed intellectually to wellness. Now, I’m prepared to commit emotionally and spiritually. Yes, it took me that long. As Cheryl so lovingly says, “There’s work to do there.”
In order for me to build the caliber of business I wanted to build and live the life I want to live, I need to be healthy so I could ‘go the distance’ – literally and figuratively. And, let’s face it, when someone is at the front of the room giving you advice on how to grow your business, you want them to look the part. It’s not always a nice fact of life to face but, as I always say: It is what it is.
I’m not perfect, but I’m committed. The whole point of me blogging here is to share my challenges, ideas, thoughts and wins with you. Some thoughts will be nice – some not so nice. This is really a bit of therapy of sorts for me. And, as I heal myself and move toward a wellness lifestyle, I hope you learn something along the way as well.
So, this is me – warts and all – groping my way toward a happy, healthy wellness lifestyle all while heading up a growing business and living in NY (for the time being…more on that later). Let’s see what happens.
Hopefully I’ll get a warm welcome from all The Ville residents. A girl needs all the support she can getPrint This Post |
