I have been working on myself in more areas than one, all at once. I am learning, growing and changing as a result of the work I am doing. The work I am doing online involves some challenges. I am thinking (more than usual) and I am inspired! I am working to change my life by turning my dreams into a reality.
I first took part in the #brandstorychallenge last week. It is over now, and people actually participate in it more than once. It is that good, and the information is different each time you take it! The basics may be similar each time, as it has a solid foundation, but you are guaranteed to learn something new each time you take this free challenge. My Day 6 Bonus Challenge homework was a design I made in Canva. That program was introduced to me earlier in my blogging journey. Along with Pixabay, where I get some of the most wonderful pictures that are free to use for my blog like the flower pictures shared in this story, are two of the many tips I have learned from asking a million and one questions. Which I do. All the time.
I am proud of completing the first challenge, and this was the “Culture Credo” bonus that I designed:
I am really excited about how that turned out. I LOVE it when my brain works and comes up with the most creative and wonderful ideas. That is why I am here, still blogging. It is something I have a lot of fun with, and something that I really enjoy!
This week started a new challenge. It is all about the audience. It is the #growyourtribechallenge. The same person that taught the first one is teaching this one, too. I have just completed the Day 2 homework. I like the things I am learning. It is making me think, and because I am writing my answers in a journal, and sharing it all every day, privately in the #PaidToBeYouPosse group (where you can find the challenges if you are interested) on Facebook and sharing the summaries publicly to win prizes.
After completing the #BrandStoryChallenge, I was in the draw for a prize, but I did not win. I feel like I won something that will help me move forward, though. I asked a list of questions, and they were almost all answered in the closing video for the challenge last week. I used my talent of rapid fire think and ask questions to my advantage. Jennifer Kem graciously took almost an hour of the 90-minute video to address almost all of my questions. I am certain that other people were maybe too shy to ask, and I certainly didn’t think she would pick more than one or two at most. As she runs a four-month long course that is not free like the challenges I am participating in, I didn’t get EVERY SINGLE QUESTION answered, but that is SMART. It makes me want to start saving up for the next time the course will be offered, to get more training to become a successful entrepreneur. I have already started business ideas before this, so I do consider myself an entrepreneur. Becoming a success story, well that is what I am developing as I progress on this journey. So again, Jennifer, thanks for the answers, I feel like I had a coaching session, and the advice was priceless! If you are interested in her course, check out her website http://www.jenniferkem.com/. She teaches about #masterbrand and #paidtobeyou.
Now, to address the two remaining elements in this Tish-ism. What brought this one to life? I was journaling away at my homework from Day 2. I was on the final question, and it was in my mind. The people in my tribe that read this blog are open to the “Tish-bits” of information that I share here. I was inspired in the middle of answering that question, and I just put up a bracket and wrote it and used some other terms in the answer too. I Tishsplained “Tish-isms”, “Tishsplaining”, and my new term “Tish-bits” right in the body of my answer. If you have been following my blog, then you will know that my brain never stops, and it felt right to me to just stick it all in my answer. I made it all relatable like I do.
The last mysterious element in the latest Tish-ism is what kind of flower that picture at the top of the story was. I will solve the mystery here if you didn’t guess it already.
