Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone

It’s been years since I’ve written a blog post, and I suppose I should be ashamed.  However, blogging has never been my thing.  I’ve been a behind the scenes kinda gal, but 2015 demands that I break out of what’s been comfortable for me.

SO . . . there’s this event I want to attend next month.  And I learned that if I submitted a blog post, I MIGHT have an opportunity to win two tickets to the Daytona Beachpreneurs Lifestyle Conference, February 27 – March 1.  To be considered:

“Blog about one way you feel ‘Frazzled’ in your business activities and share why you’d love [to] attend the Daytona Beachpreneurs Lifestyle Conference.”

I have to admit that ‘Frazzled’ is a word I had to look up to be sure I understood its meaning.  Although I found several definitions, this one from resonated with me:

“To be feeling a bit brain-fried; lost and confused; not functioning properly; slightly stressed; all over the place.”

To be honest, that’s pretty much been the state of my ‘business activities’ for the past 12 years.  No real structure or foundation for running a business.  Just 36 years of computer operations, software training and troubleshooting skills.  Thankfully, I’ve managed to utilize all of that experience in a haphazard fashion since 2003 to eek out a living without a traditional job.

And that is the real issue over which I am most ‘Frazzled’.   People who know me and the quality of my work recognize that I’m dedicated, diligent, detailed oriented and know my stuff.  Yet, I’m still struggling to earn the kind of income I know I am capable of earning!

Although it may appear as if I’m living the ‘dream’ lifestyle where my income is generated from online activities and I live in Daytona Beach, my bank account is embarrassingly the opposite of what is touted as the Internet and Beachpreneurs Lifestyle.  And that absolutely MUST change in 2015!

Being able to attend the Daytona Beachpreneurs Lifestyle Conference would be beneficial in:

  • Gaining guidance and direction so that I can create my own powerful and successful business (as I have watched each of the speakers do for themselves);
  • Discovering how to more clearly define a business structure designed to generate more than enough income;
  • Determining how best to develop additional products around my new web service; and
  • Helping to boost my self-esteem and elevate my confidence level – I want to really show up in the world with what I have to, and can, offer – not just have the appearance of confidence.

Having recently experienced a time of ‘Frazzled’ uncertainty, which made me feel lost and confused about what my future business looks like, I have had to emerge from my self-imposed cocoon and ‘slap myself in the face’.  And I recognize my future totally depends on never putting myself in such a position again.

So, since I live less than five miles from the event location, I would absolutely LOVE the opportunity to attend the Daytona Beachpreneurs Lifestyle Conference.

Being able to spend three days getting to know each of the speakers better, while learning how to “see the big picture, adopt success focused attitudes and use methods [you each] have developed” would not only be enlightening and empowering, but also AWESOME, as I know you each are.  🙂

Thank you for providing an opportunity to WIN 2 Free Tickets for the Daytona Beachpreneurs Lifestyle Conference.
