Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really humbled.
It’s so easy for me to think of my business in terms of simply exchanging value…feeling like I must always be giving value and creating breakthroughs and earning someone’s attention.
And that’s not wrong – if my business isn’t making lives better, I shouldn’t be doing it.
But then there are moments of generosity that stop me short.
This has happened over and over throughout the past few years.
Clients who have referred me to person after person with no expectation of anything in return.
People who have responded to my emails to cheer me on just because they believe in me.
And over the past few weeks, the dozens of people who have supported me on my book journey.
My book won’t be published for four months. These supporters can’t read reviews or blurbs from industry experts to confirm that the book will be any good. They’ve taken a step of faith in me.
People who aren’t even interested in the topic have bought it just to support me.
I’m not even sure what to say about that, except thank you.
There are times when you’re just overwhelmed by the abundant goodness of the people you have the privilege to know, and this is one of those times.
Thank you for being a part of this with me. A small business isn’t built by an amazing founder – it’s built by an amazing community. And I am so blessed to say that I have one.
p.s. The campaign will wrap up on Sunday. You can check out our progress and join the journey here.
