First year of business – But who am I to….?

Here’s one for anyone ‘wanting to make a contribution’ who is scared they don’t have enough expertise to join in the dialogue in the field they are interested in. I love this tip – it really speaks to me.

“As soon as I gave myself permission to contribute to the conversation……, and not have to be a guru or expert, then my business became fun. 

If you really care about a topic, be a CONTRIBUTOR. Who cares if you don’t know everything. You don’t have to be the best to make a difference to someone.” (my Caps).
– Denise Duffield-Thomas

This has been true for me.

I am not THE expert. I am hardly AN expert. But these days my expertise comes as much from lived experience and intuition as ‘book learning’ so I claim that lived experience happily. And what I know I know because I’ve seen it, felt it, know it deep inside my very cells, not only as a theory.

All I aim to do is make some small contribution, that will be unique as I am unique. Just like your contribution will also be as unique as you are.

What a beautiful patchwork quilt we create together through these contributions.
