Trying something new can be scary.
Why would you want to put yourself through that?
A very good question. It could be that you get a thrill from the unknown, the excitement of not knowing what will happen next.
Sometimes it's not so much the fear that stops us from trying something new as it is our comfort level. Let's face it, we humans like to be comfortable. Change is not always comfortable. How then, are we to know if we can succeed at something if we don't try. How will you know if you like swimming if you don't get in the water? How will you know if you like brussell sprouts if you don't try them? Just so you know, I still don't like them. No amount of butter, cheese, or grandma's special recipe can make me like them. But hey! I tried them at least. Now I know.
We can't grow without change. Change without a plan can lead to failure. For almost eight years now I have and continue to be the publisher for Loconeal Publishing, LLC. For longer than that I have been a teacher, author, mentor, researcher and speaker. In the last year I have felt like I have been at a crossroads in my career. I love all of the things that I do, so I guess it is about time that I put all of that together. Don't panic Loconeal authors, I'm not going anywhere. However, I will be doing something new.
A few months back I decided to combine a lot of the things I do on a daily basis into a new project. My email subscribers have already been learning about this, but here is a little recording I made that explains a little bit more about what I am doing at www.jamesobarnes.com and www.EntrePublishing.com. The recording is something new for me as well. Usually I just write it out.
