This podcast episode is about business.
Specifically, My Business.
And the fact that it’s not working.
Warren Buffet is the third richest person in the world…he has owned and started businesses that have not worked. Here is one of my favorite Warren Buffet quotes:
“In a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.”– Warren Buffett
You know that I have changed my mind, changed my life, changed my name, changed my business and its name. You know that my foundational belief is “If we don’t change, nothing changes.”
I have hung on for several years in a chronically leaking boat. I’ve tried several stints of patching leaks to keep from sinking. Changing vessels is more productive for me now than patching leaks.
I always considered the podcast, live videos, and articles to be my passion and a business. The business part was coaching and creating paid classes and groups to support, inspire, and educate women who have escaped domestic abuse.
Paid classes and groups have not been supported. In spite of my efforts, this business is not viable.
The cost to create what I offer for free is almost $1,000 a month. I thought by this time I would generate enough income to at least break even. That has not been the case.
The bottom line is that I can no longer justify staying in this chronically leaking boat.
This is the final episode of SHATTERPROOF Thriving After Domestic Abuse Podcast.
Listen to the podcast to learn more about my decision to take the fork in the road.
I do intend to continue building an online community. My focus will be on personal growth for women over 50. Content and lessons will apply to creating our authentic lives after domestic abuse, but that will not be the primary focus.
