WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?
You know what I am talking about. The things that simply take over your being and drive nearly everything you do? The continual factors that are always somewhere in your psyche filling you first with what if, then maybe, and finally the confidence to say “Yes, this is what I am about!”
This past week I had the pleasure of attending a workshop watching young entrepreneurs hone their skills to benefit their craft. Everyone involved in this event is an amazing person. The speaker is a powerhouse filled with excitement about sharing her evolving business. The collaborators, who orchestrated the action packed event, were silently efficient in hiding all the work being continuously done behind the scenes while presenting their many talents. Each dynamic attendee brought with them a unique set of concepts, processes and goals for their business and themselves.
As a group, we all attended the same events and heard the same words. Yet, I am certain we all came away with an individual interpretation of the experience because what makes each of us tick is delightfully different.
Food is the glue that universally binds. It’s what brought us all together this week. In some way each of us have a unique connection with all kinds of food. No two paths are the same but they all lead to the same thing. Contentment in the knowledge we are privileged to be doing something we are passionate about.
The workshop venues varied between local eateries and an architectural gem of a townhouse!
Let me tell you there was not one person at this workshop who was not already a superstar! Everyone was 100% “on” the entire workshop. Soaking up new techniques and immediately putting them into action in some of the most amazing photos. Photos they will all use to show the world what makes them tick. These young women are on fire making things happen for themselves and their families. The only “glass ceiling” any of them mentioned was the atrium in the townhouse this weekend. Each one of them is a unique inspiration for anyone considering the possibility of a new path.
We hire professional photographers to shoot our projects. Both ourselves and our clients marvel at their talents and enjoy the journeys all over again looking at the photos. My goal this week was to learn the process, and understand photography. This happened. So did something I did not expect. I gained the confidence to take a few photos on my own!
Yes, our Motivational Monday post is a tad later than usual today. However, similar to the philosophy of littleblackdomicile, that there is a perfect LBD for every home, this post shows there are many things that make each of us tick. How glorious it is when we let it happen. Sometimes all we need is a little help from our ” Foodie” friends.
