Episode 21: How to Identify the Best Opportunities
Last August, while sitting outside on her back porch on a sunny afternoon, Pierrette started to dream about what would be possible if she could step into working with the people that could really use her guidance, support, and expertise, to elevate their lives and their legacy. As she remembered her first big vision and mission, that of starting Women Moving Forward, an organization of over 1200 members, long before social media, from 2002-2008, she looked back wishing she had a visionary coach to help her. She felt so alone in how to grow her vision and mission, despite having a stellar advisory board. Neither of them had ever grown communities before, again, long before social media, and Pierrette had to learn through trial and many, many errors. In this episode, on the heels of a five-day writing retreat in the Canadian Rockies, she shares what she now does as her process when she is faced with opportunity that could potential take her vision and mission to a whole new level. How do you weigh a good opportunity against a bad one? She has learned through many bad mistakes what is right for her, and what is not, and she shares the process she uses to walk you through an opportunity which can then help you to decide if it’s a good investment, a good fit, or not. In this episode: Pierrette shares the six questions she always asks herself and how she used them to determine if the writing retreat was a good fit or not. Here are the questions to ask yourself: What is piquing your interest around that opportunity? Can you afford the opportunity, financially and energetically? Can you afford not to? If you say yes to this opportunity, how will it help you reach your short and long-term goals? Would you have regret if you chose not to invest in this opportunity? What kind of support will you need to say yes to the opportunity? Do you believe in yourself enough to say yes? As you step into your own vision and mission, opportunities will present themselves. Saying yes to the right ones can support you in ways beyond measure. Read the blog post that inspired this episode at, “Say Yes to Your Dream”.
