SOLSAK has been offline for a couple of months, but we’re baaaaaack! I hope you’ve been well and enjoying these wonderful sunny spring days. As for me, I’m just glad it’s not snowing anymore!
So, why the hiatus?
I accepted a project management contract that was very hands on and time consuming. It was a lot of work, but very rewarding. Now that the assignment is complete, I have a few lessons learned that I would love to share to hopefully encourage you along your journey.
• Stay Committed to the Cause– As you begin pursuing your goals, life will get “real” and inevitably it may take you off course. Expect it. While you may not be able to control all of the things that arise in your life, what you can control is how you will react. As for me, I took on the project manager assignment realizing that it could interfere with the business; but at the end of the day I resolve to stay committed to SOLSAK and I’m determined to see it through (pray ya’ll :P)
• Never let Money be a Deterrent– It’s super easy to remain stagnant due to a lack of financial resources, especially if you’re single and unable to fall back on a spouse’s income. I say start small and do what you can. Even if you have to take on odd jobs or contracts, do what you have to do in order to fund your business until your business can provide for you
• Come back stronger than ever– If for some reason you have to take a break from pursuing your goals, make plans to bounce back even higher than before. What does that look like for us? Before the break, SOLSAK had a klout score of 54. Klout is a numerical scale that determines your level of influence on social media. 40 is about average. Today, as a result of the time away we are now at 47. Ugggggh! Not too, too bad considering. Well, over the next 30 days, our personal challenge is to raise that score back to 54 or greater. Can we do it? Stay tuned!
Have you ever had to take a break from pursuing your goals? How did it go? Do you have any tips on raising your klout score? Please share!
