I had a decision to make yesterday.
The “one and only” Seth Godin had announced he was doing a live online QnA for the 5000+ students participating in his new SkillShare workshop on Modern Marketing. He’s like a rock star to me right now, so you can imagine my excitement!
The thing is, the live event was on Thursday: the same day local legend, Bonny Boice of BGB Consulting, had graciously agreed to meet with me and share some insights into her path to success.
I could only arrange to do one or the other. The decision was a no-brainer. A face-to-face conversation with a real person ranks miles above a limited online exchange any day of the week.
When we connect with someone directly in genuine conversation, we are transformed in the process. We are able to see ourselves in a way we couldn’t otherwise, especially if we or they are skilled in the art of asking empowering questions. When we engage in an extended dialogue, whether it be with a friend or paid professional, we have the opportunity to gain insight into our inner workings. Those insights can empower us to step more boldly into the fullest possible expression of ourselves.
If you ever reach a point where you feel you’d like some support or companionship on your journey, I do hope you’ll drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
