Maddie! How very exciting! When is your planned "jump" date? It is so scary (and so exciting!!) to make these kinds of really big changes, but it sounds like you really know your heart and are ready.

Can I ask some questions?

What do you do now? Do you like it?

What do you love to do?

What are you absolutely amazing at?

What do you think you would like to do from your home?

I work with entrepreneurs all the time - helping them with the logistics of setting up a business and then helping them work through the fear and overwhelm that often accompanies big changes like the one you are about to take.

You may consider getting your feet wet and starting the process of beginning your new venture while you are still in your current job - that way you are in more familiar territory when you take the big step.

First, though, what do you want to do and who will you serve.

YAY for you!

xo,
Nona

Hello Suzanne I am so glad I joined the group. I wasn't sure if I would fit here but reading the comments I guess I do. I left the corporate world three years ago to work from home starting my own business. I used to be an international corporate lawyer... and am now an energy psychologist, an artist and a self published author. I am willing to share anything and answer any questions on working from home. I have three children aged 14 to 3 and they are my priorities. They are not the only reason why I left the corporate world but doing my own thing has enabled me to have more time for them which is a great benefit.

I want to inspire anyone to take the big jump.... it was very very scary for me as a single mum and provider to do what I did and I still have money worries... but I wouldn't go back for all the money in the world, nor for my six figure salary...

As with everything I think I am here to give but I am convinced I will receive much more than I will give... isn't it the way it goes in communities?

Much love to all of you

Thanks for starting this group, Suzanne! I am in the process of considering how to transition out of corporate life and into a more entrepreneurial lifestyle so this group will give me a lot of inspiration.

Also, I write a column on entrepreneurs for Examiner.com so if anyone in the group is interested in being featured, let me know!

LOVE the idea of asking people on twitter for insight on the subtitle. GREAT idea Dana!

Twitter is pretty simple. Like all forms of social media, being responsive and "real" will benefit you. Also, follow lots of people and many will follow you back. But make sure to follow people that you believe you'll have a connection with and watch your own follow list to delete spammers. Tweet regularly, often and on interesting subjects. Retweet similarly to share the love. Connect your tweets to other web sites and blogs to share link love (this increases the likelyhood people will retweet). Make an effort to identify those people you have connections with in other venues - facebook, here, other communities and they'll (naturally) be more likely to retweet you because they "know you". Share snippets from the book freely so it's more than a "buy my book" message, but a message that delivers value by itself and encourages interaction which will pique interest. To the extent you're still putting the final touches on it (e.g., subtitle), why not invite fans into the process? As them intriguing questions to solicit their feedback on subtitle ideas, for example and then give them some feedback themselves to build curiosity and interest. The more human and interesting you are, and the more genuine in building your fan base, the more enthusiastic your fans will be when you ask them to do something (e.g., buy or promote your book). When you do get them to help you, be appreciative of all their support, not just purchases. Making any sense?

Love, Light and Blessings

Thanks everyone. The book is going to be self-published. Coming out with the subtitle is a major challenge at the moment. What I mean by connecting is to develop relationships, make friends, get fans, interesting exchanges so that when the book comes out people will know me and want to read the book. I am focusing on twitter and wanting to figure out how to find the people to connect with in 140 characters... Twitter experts -- ideas welcome!

Hi there. Suzanne, Lissa is working on an ebook about book publishing you can keep an eye out for. It may be helpful.

Nona - I know what you mean about over committing but this coming quarter I have not done that for a change (yet). My best suggestion is to set your intention that you can do all these things with ease and the support of spirit and be focused on being present for each thing (and preparing for it) as you can, letting the worry adn concern about doing them all go somewhere else where it can't distract you. It will all work out.

I need help with a new routine I want to set up wherein I do a morning meditation and then find a way to incorporate (routinely) a short "refresher meditation" around 2pm to try to counter my mid afternoon energy crater. It really makes me unproductive and I can also feel my reactions becoming less, um, enlightened as I get sortof tired. This also coincides with a sugar low around 3pm that usually sends me for a not-so-=healthy snack, so I'd love to nip it in the bud and just find a way to keep my energy "up" in the afternoons. Working at home many days this "should" be easy, but I'm finding it hard to remember... and if I wait until the kids get home, forget it. Ideally it should be something I can get in the habit of between meetings when I"m out of the house too... Thanks for letting me muse here and set my intention for the new year. Any ideas welcome!

Love, Light and Blessings

Hi Suzanne - what do you mean by connecting? What kind of book are you writing? Is it an eBook, self-published, traditional publishing?

The one thing I'm needing support on this first quarter is having signed myself on for too much! Here's what I've got coming:

Leading a workshop this Saturday on Setting a Theme for 2010
Regular Friday yoga classes resume on Friday the 8th
Speaking engagement at US Embassy Rome on Jan 20
Meditation group/coaching at embassy starts in February
I will be interviewed for a podcast in February
Running a biz implementation for coaches mastermind group starting in two weeks
Plus, I'm trying to launch a product that I've been working on (almost done) - hoping for a February launch.

Someone asked me what I would do to start connecting with "my people" so I can help more people and I decided to go ahead and DO all of them. Maybe not such a great strategy! :)

xx,
Nona
