A Social Movement for Positive Change

Get free tips and tricks to get out of your head and get on with getting on.

This week we are talking about positive change and how connecting with others is the best way to create the change you want to see.  But before we get started, you may be looking around and thinking you landed on the wrong site.  Don’t worry, you are in the right place.  How do you like the new design?

I know it’s a lot different than before, so take a look around and if you have any questions, send me an email at missy@sixthirtyone.com.  Also, I’m operating on the philosophy that an imperfect delivery is better than a failure to launch.  So if you come across any broken links, missing items, or anything else that doesn’t make sense, please let me know and we will get it fixed asap.

A Year of Positive Change

In 8 days, 631 will celebrate it’s one-year birthday.

Damn.

What a difference a year makes.

Just over one year ago I set a goal to quit my soul-sucking  job and replace it with a life and business that lifts me up.  At the time I didn’t know how long that would take.  And I also wanted to create a social movement for positive change.  I had this crazy idea that by being more selfish we would all be a lot happier.

Here I am, a year later.  I spend quality time with my girls every day.  My job lets me use my unique strengths to help other people create positive change in their lives.  And, my husband and I celebrate 5 years of marriage tomorrow.  I can honestly say, my life has never been better.  And it is all thanks to you.

Tryon Edwards said, “If you would know anything thoroughly, teach it to others.”

Thank you for allowing me to teach you.  Thank you for learning with me, and committing to creating positive change in your lives and communities.  The movement is growing, and you are part of it!

631_positive-changeWho Is Teaching Who?

The past year has been filled with one learning moment after another for me.  One of the biggest challenges I faced was honing in on my specific skills, and how I can best use them to help you achieve your goals.  Or more specifically, how to tell you I can help you.

You see, the difference between knowing how to do something, and knowing how to tell someone else what you do is enormous.  Even so, one of the first things you are told as a new business owner is to define your niche.  There is this sense of urgency.  Like if you don’t know the answer immediately, your business is doomed.

But 631 is about thinking differently and understanding what works for us as individuals.  So while every piece of business advice I read told me to focus on identifying my ideal client, instead I focused on helping the clients I already had, and how I could help them create positive change in their own lives.  

I took time to understand them – what they like and don’t like.  What works and doesn’t work.  And I didn’t worry if they weren’t my ‘target market’.  The only thing I wanted to do was help them achieve their goals by seeing past their own mental blocks and teaching them how to overcome those things in the future.

Fitting In

Over the past year, I have focused on my clients’ success instead of my own, and because of that I am better able to see my unique talents and understand how I can use them to help you. This has helped me realize who is most likely to benefit from my services, and who isn’t.  Instead of worrying about who I could help, I focused on how I could help.  And by learning how, I learned who.

If you are reading this, you are likely an over-achiever.  You are  driven by an intrinsic motivation to be the best.  You are competitive and have high expectations for yourself and others.  You are successful by everyone else’s standard.  But when you try to talk to them about wanting something more, they just don’t get it.

Congratulations, you’ll fit in perfectly here!

If you are tired of going on day after day, suppressing who you really are because of your dedication to success and belonging, I understand.  I am a recovering success addict as well.  So please, take a look around and then send me an email and tell me your ‘success story’.  Or, find out  more about the programs I offer here.

Here is to your success recovery!
