Passion For What You Do!
One of my guilty pleasures is The Rachel Zoe Project. While I agree that what she does is mindless and unimportant I enjoy watching it. What I enjoy is her passion for her business. She has several disastrous situations during each episode. A missing dress, can't find the perfect necklace, not enough shoes. None of these things mean anything to those of us leaving in the real world. To her, it means an unhappy client that is something all business owners can relate.
Her reputation and business success is at stake when clients move to the unsatisfied zone. She has mini breakdowns obsessing on what seems to be ridiculous. I admire that passion. She works countless hours finding the pieces she needs to present to her clients. Once she has what she deems as worthy to present and the client is happy she rejoices and takes delight in a job well done.
Every business owner can relate to that feeling. It is that passion and gratifying work that confirms that we are doing what we love. For me it's when I've mailed all the invoices, updated the Quick Books account and my client knows all is well.
I take a well deserved sigh of relief when I know that I've done just as my client expected. What use to be an overwhelming task for them has become one less thing for them to worry about. They can concentrate on growing their business, knowing they have the support they need to forge ahead. That's where my passion lies, helping small business owners manage and grow their business.
I'm a huge advocate of entrepreneurship and enjoy picking up the task that makes being a business owner difficult. Explaining an invoice, returning a telephone call, or scheduling an appointment for my client brings me that joy, I see in Rachel Zoe when she watches her client on the red carpet. Hats off to all of us that brave the weak economy and continue to work on our passio.n
