Passion + Power and why you need both (The ‘P’ Series)

Welcome to 2018!

This week, we’re talking about passion and power. As we begin this new year, it’s a time to reflect on the past one and the goals and dreams you have for the future.

Your what and your why are still questions you need to ask yourself.

Why do I do what I do?

What do I want out of my life?

Passion and power are intertwined when it comes to answering.

Your passion was design, so you became an interior designer. You have the power to share your talents and the power to build a flexible schedule so you can live the lifestyle you desire, while performing the work that you desire.

Businesses are successful when passion and power play equal parts. Passion alone won’t bring in clients or money. The power to create plans. The power to make decisions. The power to set boundaries. These are what helps your business grow and thrive.

For me, my passions include helping women leaders reach new levels in businesses, this includes financial growth, communication and strategy, that helps us continue to grow ourselves, as well as the business we are committed to.

I have the power to make a difference. I have the power to share innovative ideas. I have the power to hold people accountable. I have the power to charge what I am worth. I have the power to take vacations with my family. I have the power to go to dance or yoga in the middle of the day on a Thursday if I want to.

Being passionate about something is wonderful. Feeling powerful around that passion is even better.

I will share honestly, in 2017, my focus of what I wanted out of my business and the connection to my personal life completely shifted. I have spent over 25 years with the focus on my business success to result in the ability to raise my kids. Well, those kids are both in the workforce, with jobs and apartments of their own. So, I did get lost in the journey of the “What” & “Why.” In rediscovering me in this process, 2018 is an exciting year of new adventures, programs and possibility for SSC.
