I was sitting here feeling foiled in my efforts to move forward (strictly situational/emotional) in my various efforts. So I decided to make an org chart of the things I need to do in order to achieve my goal. (This is just one goal of many – I would need transparencies to really get “all the things I”m trying to work on simultaneously” displayed properly).
So, here you see the ultimate goal of being a stylist & author (they go together, one will build on the other, they build one another up).
There are four chains that come off of the main thread (I added one after I took the picture). So far we have: Personal Makeover (no one is going to take a stylist seriously who doesn’t have her own style nailed), Book, Marketing, and Professional Development.
Since I was looking at it, I decided to flip around. A lot of the ladies who do style stuff seem to do “outfit photos”. I don’t think I’m all that fabulous, but if that would be a draw, I can start doing a “this is how I wore it” post a few times/wk. Thoughts? Not, “do you think other people would like that” but would YOU like that, or would it be too-too-vain?
(SSW clued me in that I’ll need a dedicated blog just for the style stuff, but I’ll wait until I’ve gotten things more polished before I get that going. When it goes, I’ll want it right, right from the start. If you’re selling looks – your look needs nailing. However, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t practice now!)
Throwing the floor open for suggestions, ideas, criticisms, whatever. Yes, I want to be a success, but being a blessing is more important. How can I be a blessing in this endeavor? Should I give it all up and get my paper so I can do Christian counseling instead? (I do that, I don’t get paid for it. Don’t really want to get paid for it, but … okay, that was totally irrelevant).
Talk to me!
