I am …..
Now more than ever it seems “we” are drawing lines and identifying with one camp or another. I see it all around me and I see it in myself.
I have been taught that you need to claim yourself as this or that both in business and in our personal lives. But I hate labels, and to be honest, I identify with a lot of different types of people, places and things. Some say I am complicated, and my response is, “Yes, thank God for that.” I get to try and experience so many types of things only because I have a vast array of interests. That is the good thing.
The down side is I don’t seem to focus very well. This has muddied the waters for me while I have tried to find my uniqueness in the business world. Business terms like Target Markets, Business Plans and Sales Strategies all seem so stiff and confining. This doesn’t mean I am not dead serious about Sage Organizing LLC, just the opposite. If you have met me and I have gone down the passionate “Everyone needs to be organized” path, there is no question that I am a serious business person.
But fitting in with one group or another usually spells out the kiss of dead for me.
First and foremost I am me. The one and only.
Below is a fun list of things that make up me. Please note that unlike product ingredients, what comes first on the list doesn’t necessary mean the biggest portion of the whole. All of these things make up the whole plus much more I didn’t think about at the time of the writing. All of these things are the way I interact with the people around me and this is how I can connect so deeply with so many.
