Where Babies Come From

Newsflash: Adults don’t birth adults… they birth babies.

When “birthing” a new business, idea or position, treat it like your baby. 

Nobody frets over a baby pooping its diaper or sleeping all the time. Nobody gets frustrated when a toddler falls down when taking his/her first steps. Nobody gets discouraged when their young child fumbles over their words when learning to read.

So, why should we treat our newborn endeavor any differently?

Too many of us become discouraged or even defeated when our project doesn’t morph into adulthood in the first few years. You can’t microwave everything. Just stay the course. It takes time for ideas to develop, gain traction and find their way.

Patience, my friends, is your number one strategy to deploy. Enjoy the journey, day by day by day.

  1. Give your business grace….. brilliant! #thanksleaderbirdineededthat

  2. So I have I don’t know if you can call it a business. Let’s just say giving a helping hand . I live in a 55 plus apt building and help my neighbors in need . I clean and paint and organize and grocery shop for them . I don’t do it for money I do it because I care . If they offer a little pay I do take it helps to buy my supplies. It’s what I’m supposed to be doing at this time of my life.

  3. Thanks, Kim! You’re such an amazing encourager. As business owners, we expect so much from ourselves, which is good… but, gotta strike a balance, for sure. Love to you! Brent

  4. Gloria, I could not be more proud of or inspired by you! I love your heart, what a blessing for all those who get to have you in their lives on a regular basis. Just beautiful. You’re heeding your calling, bless you for doing so, my friend! Love you! Brent
