Reviewing Your Company’s Social Media Brand

Most entrepreneurs know in their bones that what they’re doing is meaningful. Every client we have knows the “how” and “why” they began their business.

Pablo Picasso said the work of our life is to find our purpose – the thing we know in our hearts we do better than most – and share it. Many people take their purpose and become an entrepreneur, developing a small business.

When I became certified as a Master Coach, I was asked to set intentions for what I wanted to create in my businesses. I wrote down two things:

I intend to learn how to blog, then write a program to demonstrate the value of coaching. I intend to help people and organizations grow through courageous communication.

I have way too many years of business strategy experience to be a one-on-one coach full time, so I took a two-prong approach to building the business. I left my corporate gig about four years ago, and so far my intentions are coming together.

You’re reading this; so you know I figured out how to blog. My coaching blog lives at LG Coaching, and I recently completed RightLife RuleBook. It took me a full year to create this coaching program. So far I’m thrilled with these offers.

Now it’s time to move on to that second prong: businesses and organizations.
