Guest post by by Lisa Dolce, Right-Brain Business Plan® Licensed Facilitator,

As right-brain entrepreneurs we see our business as a sacred vehicle for getting our gifts and talents out into the world. We are always looking for ways to fully express ourselves and in turn make an even bigger contribution in this world.

But what happens when you don’t know what’s next?

Maybe you hear a little voice inside you that calls you to do or be something more… But you don’t know exactly what that ‘something’ is!

Not knowing your next step can be very uncomfortable and frustrating…if you let it.

Instead of searching for some magical business formula to move you forward, remember that for you, a right-brain entrepreneur, planning starts on the inside.

You have a few superpowers you can rely on in times of transition. They are called Intuition & Imagination—and when accessed, they can reveal what I call “divine breadcrumbs” that lead you to the next step on your business journey.

So how do you access this powerful tag team?

1) Give yourself permission to start from within.

Did you know that only about 20% of our brain is used for conscious thoughts and 80% is dedicated to our unconscious thoughts? That means you have a treasure trove of untapped guidance.

Just because we are conditioned to rely on data and concrete tools for business planning, doesn’t mean you should start there. All you need to take the next step is right there within you.

2) Invite Intuition & Imagination to come out and play.

Intuition wants what is best for us, but we need to shut out all the distractions before we can hear her.

I’ve always loved to write as way of letting my imagination come out to play. So imagine my surprise when, a few years ago, my current business idea and vision came to me as a poem! I had never written a poem before—which just goes to show you never know what your Intuition & Imagination will manifest for you.

You can tune into your personal tag team in many ways: writing, painting, drawing, being in nature, meditating, dancing, cooking, anything you like to do that helps quiet your mind.

Another way to access your internal wise self is through guided imagery. It’s like dreaming while you are awake! I recommend using Jennifer Lee’s Big Vision Visualization.

3) Use a Capture System to record your breadcrumbs.

Flashes of intuitive brilliance pop up when you least expect it. So don’t miss them! Develop a simple Capture System like journaling, mind mapping, collaging or voice recording.

That poem I wrote, was captured onto this beautiful Right Brain Business Plan. This helped me to manifest the next step into a business that expresses who I am more authentically and attracts the most perfect clients for me.

My Intuition & Imagination have been my very best business guidance tool. When I stop and listen, the next evolution of my business begins to clearly emerge and so do the next action steps to lead me there.

So the next time you find yourself longing for an action plan, stop and remember to access your right-brained superpowers before diving into those left-brained details.

Your inner wise self knows exactly what you need. Listen in for those divine breadcrumbs and follow them to your most authentic and fulfilling business.

I’m launching some new things soon… a book, a podcast, plus awesome art and business retreats for busy entrepreneurs… totally delicious additions to my current coaching practice.

In the process of doing this I have only about a jillion things to get accomplished. Naturally I feel pulled in many directions all at the same time as I must keep a plethora of plates all spinning at once. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, but more often I’m fairly comfortable because I know I am well equipped to figure out how to get all this juiciness completed and ready to serve.

So how do you learn how to stay relatively calm in the face of all the things that need to be done?

  1. Know where you want to go
  2. Plan how to get there
  3. Get help with the things you’re not good at or don’t want to do
  4. Do only what you’re really good at
  5. Check in regularly with everyone (including yourself)
  6. Adjust the plan

Everything else is just noise.

Know where you want to go
This almost goes without saying… you need to be crystal clear on where you want to go and what you want to accomplish. This will serve you immensely when things get tough. It will also help you very quickly identify what’s important and what’s fluff. Plus, it will help you get back on track when you get derailed or distracted.

Plan how to get there
Since I’m a visual planner, I whip out my whiteboard, the big calendar, my foam core and my sticky notes and go to work. I start at the 30,000 foot view to identify the big projects (like book, podcast, retreats), then give each project a big piece of foam core. Then I used my sticky notes to list the major tasks and milestones. I figure out where I’ll need help and identify who I should get in touch with. I figure out when the tasks need to start and to be finished and continue to dive down and down and down until I’m ready to go to work on it.

Get help with the things you’re not good at or don’t want to do
During the planning process I show the relevant parts of the plan to various members of my team and get their input on priorities, scheduling and content. For example, I know I need to plan a social media campaign for the book, so I let my book coach and her team handle designing that piece for me. I also know I need a redo on my website, so I need to find someone to help me design it and make it a reality.

Do only what you’re really good at
Now I can already hear some of you saying, ͞”I don’t have a team.͟” I’ll bet that if you really think about it, you probably do. Does anyone help you with your website? Does anyone help you with your bookkeeping? Does anyone help you with your social media? Your graphic design? Your writing? Your mindset? Your brainstorming? Your business? Does anyone guide or mentor you? Then you have a team. They may be paid or unpaid, they’re still part of your team. Pay attention to others who have good results and get recommendations from them about who to consider engaging.

Check in regularly with everyone (including yourself)
Staying on top of things and holding your team, including yourself, accountable is essential when you have a lot you want to accomplish. I’m definitely NOT talking about you micromanaging everything or doing everything yourself. I AM talking about being a good boss and managing your team by letting them do what they do best while making sure they’re on track with what you want them to accomplish. Remember to turn the accountability mirror on yourself as well. You need to keep your focus on doing what you do best and only overseeing what other people are doing.

Adjust the plan
You will need to review your plan regularly to figure out where you need to make adjustments. Practically every plan will experience a few major glitches and will require adjustments. (Note: One of the beautiful things about sticky notes is they can be pulled off and moved easily.) Your goal is to minimize the disruptions by keeping an eye on what’s going on and by making adjustments before you hit a crisis.

Stay laser focused on what’s important and do the work. Everything else is just noise.

Pipe Your Strawberries

calendar

Guest post by by Cass Mullane, Accountability Coach, Right-Brain Business Plan® Licensed Facilitator, Prosper Creatively, LLC

I have a friend who is an amazing chef. She learned from a very young age how to bake and to cook from her grandmother and has honed her skills over the years. She describes cooking and baking as being “in her bones” meaning it is something so ingrained that she simply takes it for granted.

I asked her to cater an event at my studio and we made it a bit interactive so attendees could literally build their meals in various food vessels. (I am an artist, after all!) My friend explained each ingredient and how various items would pair beginning with appetizers, through main course options and desserts. At the end of the spread the desserts included a tray of fresh strawberries hollowed out and ready to be filled. My friend reached the strawberries and said, “This bag is filled with a wonderful chocolate mousse. Just pipe it into your strawberries and enjoy.”

As the event progressed and people started heading for desserts, she realized that the chocolate mousse bag was getting smushed in the middle instead of being twisted and kept in shape. She realized that what was “in her bones” was not necessarily in everyone else’s bones. It made her think about how she could better communicate what she considered second nature.

So, what gifts and skills are in YOUR bones? What do you do that feels completely natural? What do you do effortlessly? What is second nature to you yet you’re surprised when others cannot do it easily?

When you’re working in your zone of excellence you’re in flow. And everyone has their own zone of excellence. Your job is to identify what it is that puts you in the zone and to spend as much time there as possible.

Your job is also to OWN your zone of excellence. Please do not discount your gifts and skills, do not minimize them. Instead, recognize that this is what makes you strong and this is what makes you unique. You can always draw on these skills and they are solidly in your toolbox.

If you’re inclined to share your skills and gifts, learn how to do that effectively. Learn what is foundational and how to communicate it. Learn how to make sure the people you’re teaching feel empowered and gain confidence in their new learning. Make sure you know how to make your wonderful world open and welcoming to them.

And, from a business perspective, while you’re concentrating on working in your zone of excellence, let others take care of the things that are not in your zone. Ideally, you’ll seek out and hire people who are working in their zone of excellence to take care of the things that are not in your zone.

Chefs can make a meal look and taste spectacular and think nothing of it. Artists can create a work of art seemingly effortlessly. A business person can look at numbers and instantly understand what they mean. A software developer can write an app without even thinking about how to code.

What is your zone of excellence? What are you doing to pipe your strawberries?

My friend Emilie Wapnick’s new book comes out TODAY May 2nd. It’s just the thing for you if you have multiple passions and aren’t sure how to make it work. In Part 2 of my interview with Emilie she talks to us about productivity hacks for multipotentialites, how to get over Imposter Syndrome, and how to lead with your gifts. You can check out Part 1 here to learn about her four multipotentialite work models.

Emilie’s Interview

Jenn: I hear from many creatives how frustrated they get when they feel like they can’t get anything done because they always have so many ideas and interests. What are a few productivity tips that you can share with us?

Emilie: Here’s my favorite “productivity hack” for multipotentialites:

  • Write down all of your passions and projects.
  • Pick 1-4 projects that you really want to focus on right now. These are your priority projects. Write them out on a separate page. Hang them on your wall as a reminder, if that helps.
  • Make a long list out of all of your other passions and projects. This is your list of projects that are waiting in the wings. Add to this list whenever a new, shiny idea pops into your head.
  • When it’s time to get down to work, take a look at your priority projects and pick one to work on. Once you lose steam, take a break and/or switch to another priority project.
  • If you’re ever itching to play with some of your projects that are waiting in the wings, take some Tinkering Time. Set a timer for 40 minutes (or whatever length feels appropriate), and have at it. Go down the rabbit hole, explore to your heart’s content, be “unproductive,” have fun! You set a timer, so there’s no risk of losing the whole day.

It’s important that multipotentialites give themselves the freedom to explore, otherwise we can become resentful of our priority projects. At the same time, we want to make progress on our core projects. This technique allows you to balance those two competing needs.

Jenn: It’s quite common in my community of creative entrepreneurs for folks to dabble in a lot of different areas and sometimes this triggers people’s “Imposter Syndrome” fear to kick in. What would you tell someone who is suffering from this limiting belief?

Emilie: Imposter syndrome is a belief that deep down, you are a fraud, that you shouldn’t be here, and that one day everyone will wake up and realize it. Everyone experiences imposter syndrome from time to time, but I think multipotentialites feel it more because we often have unconventional backgrounds or are “outsiders” when we begin exploring something new.

First, know that if you were truly an imposter, you wouldn’t be feeling this way. Imposters are liars, bent on tricking others and profiting from that deceit. Come on, does that really sound like you? True imposters don’t feel imposter syndrome. If you’re feeling a little unsure of yourself, that means that you’re genuine, that you are doing something that matters to you, and that you are maybe stepping out of your comfort zone a little: all good things! Plus really really successful people have talked about experiencing imposter syndrome. I’m talking about folks like John Steinbeck and Jodie Foster. In fact, imposter syndrome might be a sign that you’re doing something very very right.

Beyond realizing that everybody feels this way sometimes, the best way to get past imposter syndrome is to refocus on the work itself. Instead of thinking about how other people perceive you or how well you measure up, just get back to it. Show yourself, through your actions, that you know what you’re doing.

Jenn: It’s so important for us to live from our strengths and as you discuss in the book multipotentialites actually have so many gifts to tap into. What advice do you have for us to lead with our multipotentiality?

Emilie: If you think you might be a multipotentialite, know that there’s nothing wrong with you. In fact, being oriented this way is kind of a super power! Your diverse background and unique skillset can help you stand out in a professional setting and allow you to contribute to the world in refreshingly unique ways.

To lead with your multipotentiality is to embrace and own it. Don’t apologize for having many projects; share those projects with enthusiasm. Design a life that allows you to be the biggest and best multipotentialite you can be. It is absolutely possible to embrace your many passions and having a thriving career at the same time.

Thanks so much for sharing your unique gifts so that we can embrace our puttylike nature. How can we find out more about your work?

Thanks Jenn! You can learn more about my new book at HowtoBeEverything.com. And if you’d like to check out the community and blog, head over to Puttylike.com and say hi!

Guest post by by Lisa Dolce, Right-Brain Business Plan® Licensed Facilitator,

In my last blog post, I talked about how as a Sensitive Entrepreneur, your sensitivity is not a weakness but rather your GREATEST strength.

As highly sensitive people, entrepreneurs like you and I think and feel more deeply than most. We experience the world around us much more intensely. You may think this will hold you back in your business but in fact your sensitivity can be used as a business superpower!

How?

The most important first step is recognizing your sensitivity as a business ASSET, not a liability.

Here are a few ways to look at your sensitivity as a competitive advantage that will help your business to flourish.

Being a daydreamer gives you the fuel to build a powerful business.

Do you feel like your vivid imagination runs away with
you?

Your ability to envision the future is a superpower that is at the heart and soul of any successful business. As a highly sensitive person you can see what most others can’t, and you sense what pieces go together to develop a targeted roadmap to create a standout business.

Being overwhelmed by creative ideas makes you an awesome innovator.

You know that constant stream of ideas that wake you up in the middle of the night? Don’t dismiss this as an annoying quirk!

Highly sensitive people have come up with the most life-changing ideas, inventions and products. Do the names Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison ring a bell? Yes, they were highly sensitive just like you. Entrepreneurship thrives on creativity, which is why most businesses have super creative people at the helm.

Being “too emotional” creates remarkable customer loyalty.

Have you ever been told you’re “too emotional” or “overly sensitive”? You probably hide this part of yourself because it can be perceived as a weakness in business.

However, your incredible awareness of the suffering of others can be your customer service superpower. Your empathy and intuition can keep you a step ahead of customer service issues. You can usually sense when something isn’t quite right, and you care a lot when a customer is unhappy. Sensitive entrepreneurs tend to offer a level and quality of customer service that is far superior to many other businesses—giving us an incredible competitive edge and many satisfied, loyal customers.

Bottom line: Please stop trying to “fix” your sensitivity and start embracing it for all its gifts in business. This is the most important step in activating your natural superpowers.

No more hiding. It’s time to step out and shine a light on ALL your gifts, so the people that need you the most can find you.

And when you honor and work in a way that is truest for you, you will be amazed how you and your business will soar!

So how can you use your sensitivity as your superpower?

My friend Emilie Wapnick’s new book comes out on May 2nd and you can pre-order yours today to get some cool pre-order bonuses! I had the chance to interview Emilie about how to make having multiple passions work for you in this Part 1 interview. Part 2 will come out next week, just in time for her official pub date!

Emilie’s Interview

Jenn: Lots of creatives I know tend to get down on themselves for not being able to “just pick one thing.” Can you talk to us about what it means to be a mutlipotentialite and how it’s actually a valuable quality to have? I’d love for you to talk about your term Puttylike as well.

Emilie: A multipotentialite is someone with many interests and creative pursuits. We’re curious about a number of unrelated subjects and often move between domains in our career and over the course of our lives. We can be hard to pinpoint or categorize because we’re into so many different things.

“Puttylike” is an adjective that describes a multipotentialite. I got the idea from thinking about silly putty, and how it’s malleable and changes shape, kind of like us. So you could say, “Suzie is a total multipotentialite! Did you see the music video she wrote and produced that explains the laws of Thermodynamics?!” Or you could say: “Suzie is so puttylike! Did you see the music video she wrote and produced that explains the laws of Thermodynamics?!” You get what I’m saying.

Conventional wisdom pegs multipotentialites as “jack-of-all-trades, masters of none,” in other words: ineffective and unsuccessful dilettantes. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Multipotentialites are creative, out-of-the-box thinkers who possess super powers like idea-synthesis (combining two ideas that don’t normally go together–the basis for innovation), rapid learning, adaptability, big picture thinking, and the ability to relate to all kinds of different people and translate between them (an important skill to have when you’re working with big, cross-disciplinary teams).

Jenn: Being a multi-passionate person can feel overwhelming especially when you don’t know how to make it work for you. I love that you offer some great frameworks for structuring your passions into a fulfilling life/career. Can you give us the highlights of your four multipotentialite work models? I’m also curious to know which one are you?

Emilie: While doing research for the book, I interviewed about 50 multipotentialites who self described as being both happy and financially comfortable. Then I surveyed a couple thousand more. I wanted to really grasp how multipotentialites make a living.

At first it was a little frustrating because everyone had very different careers. There were artists, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, architects… I thought: if multipotentialites can be happy in pretty much any role, but what works for one multipotentialite doesn’t work for the next, where the heck should people begin when designing their careers? What I eventually realized is that, even though the participants’ specific jobs were different, there were four work models I saw people using again and again. Each of these approaches to work allows you to get the variety you need as a multipotentialite into your work and life:

1. The Group Hug Approach: having one multifaceted job or business that allows you to wear many hats and shift between several domains at work.

Imagine your interests coming together in one big group hug–It’s like that. To give you an example of what this looks like, I interviewed an Urban Planner named Jimena Veloz who told me that over the course of a single week, you might find her: researching, mapping, conducting field visits, interviewing people, working with communities, drafting reports, organizing events, planning the implementation of policy, designing, communicating to the public, advocating for a project to be approved, and evaluating completed projects. Talk about a perfect job for a variety-seeking multipotentialite!

2. The Slash Approach: having two or more part-time jobs and/or businesses that you flit between on a regular basis.

This is the programmer/teacher/stand-up comedian (see those slashes?). Unlike the Group Hug Approach, where you combine your interests in a single job or business, with the Slash Approach, you are keeping them separate and distinct. You have a handful of part-time work projects, each of which appeals to you for a different reason. Most of the Slash Careerists I spoke with enjoy each of their “slashes” a great deal, but wouldn’t want to do any one of them full-time. Moving between unrelated projects creates a fun, dynamic work week and allows you to diversify your income.

3. The Einstein Approach: having one full-time job or business that fully supports you, while leaving you with enough time and energy to pursue your other passions on the side.

Albert Einstein worked at the patent office for many years. He was essentially employed by the government and had this stable, secure day job. He actually developed his theories on the side. Multipotentialites who use the Einstein work model have what author Barbara Sher calls a “good enough job”: a job that takes care of your financial needs but that also leaves you with enough time and energy to pursue your many passions on the side. (By the way, you can also have a “good enough business,” where you have one narrow, lucrative business that pays the bills and then you explore everything else outside of work.)

The Einstein Approach definitely isn’t for everybody. But the multipotentialites who use it told me that it takes the pressure off of having to monetize every little thing they become interested in. Having your financial needs taken care of can be quite freeing. My favourite example is a guy I interviewed named Charlie Harper. Charlie is an IT manager by day, but come 5pm, he leaves the office and goes to musical theatre practice. He also sings in an a capella group and he builds furniture and boats on the weekend.

4. The Phoenix Approach: working in a single industry for several months or years and then shifting gears and starting a new career in a new industry.

Some multipotentialites like going deeper in a single industry for longer periods of time. At a certain point, they begin to feel like they’ve learned and experienced all they need to, and are ready for a new adventure. At that point, they begin building their skills and connections in a new domain that has piqued their interest, and eventually transition to the new field.

The phoenix is a good metaphor for this kind of multipotentialite because it’s kind of like they reach the end of their “life” in a particular career, burst into flames (or decompose slowly, depending on the interpretation of the myth) and are reborn from the ashes to embark on a new career.

By the way, it is totally possible to be a hybrid of two or more of these work models. Feel free to mix and match these approaches and customize them to your heart’s content.

And since you asked, right now I’m using the Group Hug Approach (my business/online community, Puttylike, is extremely multifaceted. I feel like I’m switching hats all week long, going from writing to speaking to developing courses, to coaching, to design… I also get to focus on topics as varied as work, creativity, mental health, fear, etc.), but I definitely have phoenix tendencies, too. Check in with me in ten years and I bet I’ll be doing something very different (wink wink).

Jenn: Thanks so much for sharing your unique gifts so that we can embrace our puttylike nature. How can we find out more about your work?

Emilie: Thanks Jenn! You can learn more about my new book at HowtoBeEverything.com. And if you’d like to check out the community and blog, head over to Puttylike.com and say hi!

Stay tuned next week for Part 2 of Emilie’s interview where she’ll talk about productivity hacks for multipotentialites, how to get over Imposter Syndrome, and how to lead with your gifts.

Break The Time Box

calendar

Guest post by by Cass Mullane, Accountability Coach, Right-Brain Business Plan® Licensed Facilitator, Prosper Creatively, LLC

Don’t you just love getting up in the morning? You pop out of bed, hop in the shower and zip into work because you love arriving bright and early. You sit down and start tackling the tasks of the day and by the time everyone else is rolling in, you’ve already gotten in a couple of hours of good, solid work.

Wait a minute…

Don’t you just hate it when that alarm goes off and you have to get up in the morning? You drag yourself out of bed, stumble to the shower and haul yourself to work, sucking down the coffee just to keep your eyes open. You sit down, look at the stack of work to be done and lay your head on the desk wishing for a few hours more sleep.

As business owners, we all have to deal with getting up and going to work. And we all have models of behavior that are ingrained in us that relate to work. For example, some of you of you come from environments with a time-clock and you punch in on time and leave on time. Others come from a corporate environment a where there are set hours for arrival and departure and you know the minimum work day is generally 8-9 hours.

So, what happens when you decide to head out on your own? How do you set your work hours?

Here are a couple of things to consider when thinking about your work hours:

  1. When do your clients and customers expect you to be available to them
  2. When do you want to be available to your clients and customers
  3. When do you need to spend time working on your business
  4. What are your body’s natural rhythms in terms of when you are most productive and when you need to be doing something else.

I have a client who found herself struggling to get into her office by 9:00 am each day and who would berate herself about not being able to arrive on time and how unprofessional she was. She was also causing herself some discomfort at home as she was unable to enjoy morning chats with her spouse because she was in such a rush to get to the office. In addition, she was forcing herself to work through the last two hours of her day and beating herself up for not getting much done those last two hours. She did not understand why she was having such frustration with what she “knew” was the “right” way to work. After all, she had done it as a corporate professional for many years. Plus, she had read that super successful people always arrived at the office early and stayed late.

When we looked at her self-imposed requirement to be at the office at 9:00 am and not to go home until 6:00 pm, we discovered a few things:

  1. She was not “required” to be at the office at all; much of her work could be done at other places like home, coffee shops or even outside in the parks.
  2. She was not “required” to be at the office at the crack of 9:00, especially since the building itself did not open to the public until 10:00.
  3. She was not “required” to stay until 6:00 every day, especially since the building closed to the public at 5:00
  4. Her body was telling her in no uncertain terms that late afternoons were her least productive time so forcing herself to stay with the expectation of being productive was not such a bright idea.
  5. Her soul was telling her that she needed to change something or she’d go nuts.

So we decided to break the time box that she had encased herself in.

As the CEO of her business she realized that she had the flexibility to set her own schedule to match her body’s natural rhythms with the needs of her business, her customers and clients and her family.

So, are you encased in a self-imposed time box? Are there adjustments that you can make that would allow you a better flow with your business needs and your personal needs?

Is it time to break the time box?
