I had a Zoom call today with an organization about what I needed to do to land government contracts. The presenter told me all of the steps it would take for me to make sure that I was compliant with the federal government guidelines to bid on projects. As I listened to him I was really excited about positioning my company to possibly get a million dollar contract with the federal government.
Once the call had ended I sat quietly to digest all of the information that I had just received. The more I thought about the information that was shared with me the more I realized that going after government contracts did not fit into the life that I had designed for myself. My new designer life is one of more fun and authenticity, and less stress all while making money. Now don't get me wrong, I understand that a million dollar contract could really change my life for the better financially, but the stress that comes with that million dollar contract is not something I'm willing to take on.
I've spent so much time grinding and stressing about my business, I'm not willing to do that anymore. My frame of mind right now is to work smart and have fun. Right now I feel that chasing down government contracts will not be all that fun.
My designer life consist of me hosting the Good Morning Podcast Monday-Thursday and writing blog posts weekly about things that interest me like business, things happening around Gwinnett and living my best life. It also consist of me consulting with others who are stuck or who want to start a business or podcast. I want to share my entrepreneurial story and journey with others by being a guest on other people's podcast.
I've spent the last 24 years working in my business that I'm sure that I missed out on a lot in life. I have a granddaughter and I want to spend more quality time with her and my family. I want to learn how to play the piano and take amazing pictures. These are the things that make me happy and I'm looking forward to this new designer life that I'm creating for myself.
Hopefully my experience will inspire someone to follow their dream and create their designer life.
The next phase of my life is making me a priority and I will not chase money, not even a million dollar contract.
I hope you find some inspiration in this story.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
