As promised, I am back with part 2 of the e-zine article - Viva La Revolution- about how to identify your Revolution. This is all about showing up fully, differentiating yourself, and giving people a compelling reason to hire you so you can stop settling and make some real money doing what you love.

I left you thinking about your point of view.

In case you forgot- Your point of view is your unique perspective. It's what you know to be true and feel passionate about. It's the thing that drives you and the wisdom that you live by. It's also what makes you special and unique.

It's important to take the time to identify your point of view and be conscious of it because doing so helps you stay true to you, and sends out a powerful signal that attracts other people who resonate with it into your experience. They will quickly become your friends and allies.

Your Revolution

Once you have your point of view down, it's time to move onto your Revolution.

Your Revolution springs out of your point of view and is based on what drives you crazy, what you see as missing, and where you constantly want to take action to change things. In most cases, this is what got you into the business that you are in. It's the WHY and the driving force behind what you do. Don't be afraid to claim it.
I want to throw out there that your Revolution is about you taking a stand for what you believe in. Don't be afraid to take a stand for the change you really want to see. It doesn't need to be popular or politically correct. It can go against what other people are doing and saying. Matter of's better to be bold! That is what a revolution is all about...shaking things up and saying "This can be different and I'm going to show you how".

Your revolution is that thing that you can't stop talking about! It will compel you to write a book and launch a website. You are passionate about it! You want to show other people how to avoid falling into this trap!
Your Revolution is a rallying point for people. They will get behind you and want to be part of it.

My revolution -

My revolution springs from being upset that so many talented musicians, coaches, and healers feel they have to give up their dreams, conform and settle for soul-sucking jobs in order to make money. If they choose to do what they love, they think they have to conform to the standard way of doing things or settle for not making any money and barely getting by.

It breaks my heart because I know that they CAN make money doing what they love and being themselves; if they would just go for it and believe that it can happen and trust that there are plenty of people out there who will buy what they are offering.

My revolution is to make money doing what you love and being 100% you in your full freaky glory! No settling or conforming!

I want you to pursue what interests you, do your own thing and own that special something -something that only you can share with the world.The goal is to be excited about what you're doing and love what you are offering.

Love it! Own it! And fly that freak flag high and proud!

Is this a revolution that you want to be part of?

It's your turn- What's your revolution all about?

Remember-your revolution is personal. Think about what your journey in life has been about, what you have to learn and what you feel compelled to share. Who cares if 100 people are already talking about the similar thing! No one can do it like you.

Send me what you come up with!

If you need any help figuring your revolution out let me know. I'd be happy to set up a Kick-ass consultation with you to discuss it.

Unfurl that freak flag!
