I am grateful that you are a gifted facilitator and networker; we need more women who can make connections and deliver results from ideas that can be a dime a dozen.
I gained the courage to follow my entrepreneurial instincts from several professional colleagues who suggested they would partner with me in making the leap to progress my consulting and business start-up capabilities. When those were successful, I was then asked to consider funding opportunities for new businesses which I found to be both exciting and gratifying.
It is very rewarding to assist others who want to start a business. I suppose that if you are able to find one measure of success, then this breeds the confidence to continue unfolding opportunities that come your way.
I do believe that every success should be used as a stepping stone for the next opportunity that furthers a bigger vision of achievement! I find, too, that my passion for new business ideas gives me courage in and of itself.
You must not devalue the gift of networking and facilitating; many of us are unable to see connections and how they can deliver a sturdy platform for building business opportunities. If you are excited by the value of networking, perhaps you ought to consider making a business out of it!
The courage to build a new enterprise comes from giftedness that is rooted in a passion. It is the deep well of passion that fuels ambition and drive.
Even if a business in networking isn't enticing, let your passion for it drive your own success.
