Artists, how would like to have more sales? You can, when you develop relationships with other collaborators.
We all would like money come to you easily and effortlessly, no matter where you are or what you are doing?
We all would agree that is would be a wonderful thing. Putting all our eggs in one basket is something I have learned that hasn’t really worked well for me.
Earlier this year I decided that hunting for work, spending my energy on this task was wearing me out.
A friend of mine asked me, “How’s it working for you?”
My answer was of course “It’s not.”
What I felt in that moment, was I could let go of my struggles and worries. Struggling wasn’t getting me anywhere. I was given an incredible opportunity to live with a friend and just re-focus, get my stomach and legs back, spend time just to think about what it is that I really wanted to be and do.
I have many ideas and things that I want to do..I came up with Food 4 Social Change. It’s not just about food, it’s about inspiration, it’s about Kindness, it’s about being passionate and what I do and want to offer.
It’s about supporting other Start-Up Entrepreneurs who want to make a difference in our world, or maybe it’s just making a difference in our local economy. Creating jobs, helping people have money come to them, to have other revenue streams, help them launch their passions.
I bring this up, because if we are struggling then maybe it’s time to give it up, surrender it. Life ought to flow. It also means we need to listen to ourselves, take risks, be open- minded to new opportunities that present themselves.
Since saying, “YES,” I have found many opportunities to meet new people, gigs and other adventures have come to me. When we have obstacles or mountains sometimes we feel, “I give up!”
It’s ok, just to give up for a time or rest. It’s an opportunity to look at the situation and find a way around it, or through it or just learn to LOVE what’s in your way. Once it is released or a resource or idea or solution will come to you.
I remember a friend of mine who wanted to make some extra money as she was just covering her rent. I suggested an idea to her. It was like the doors and windows immediately shut.
If you want more money or another revenue stream or sales and you just feel stuck, then you also need to be open to new ideas. Say Yes more often.
Be careful what you ask for. As you will likely get it.
