Are you building your business on a void?

What's it About...

The copy was soooo damn seductive…of course you couldn’t resist.

Of course you signed up for that webinar/course/program that promised to share the secret of how to take your business to the next level, to finally celebrate a $10k month, to turn your one-person-band into an agency.

And — of course — it didn’t work out quite as you hoped.

But, if you’re sitting rocking in the corner, mainlining gin, and berating yourself for wasting a whole bunch of precious $$ on yet another course, I have some excellent news for you…

You’re not the problem here.

The actual problem is this:

You’re trying to build your business on a myth, a problem, a void.

And it’s not just you — we all do it.

When it comes to making decisions on the future of our business, we all feel lost sometimes. We all find it hard. We all just want someone to take us by the hand and say, “here, do x, y, and z for guaranteed success”.

We all want a blueprint to follow…and there are plenty of folks out there with blueprints to share.

But here’s the thing: we often select those blueprints based on who we WANT to be in business, on where we WISH our business was, on what we think our business SHOULD look like.

Which is where the trouble starts.

Because if you’re ignoring facts and making future plans based on who you wish you were, rather than who you actually are, you’re building your business based on a myth. If you don’t know yourself (and what you actually want) really, really well, you’re building your business on a void. And if all you’re doing is fixating on problems, guess what? You’re going to keep finding problems.

And this stuff permeates every aspect of your business, from the 5-year plan that just doesn’t FEEL right to the realisation that you’re spending all day, every day just putting out fires. From the head-swimmingly-complicated systems that you adopted to “make your life easier” to the VA that has somehow managed to double your to-do list.

So what do you do about it?

You take an entirely different approach to business.

· You commit to busting the myth of who you think you are in business and learn who you actually are.

· You uncover the information you need to make decisions that work for you.

– Instead of molding yourself to fit your business, you start working on the belief that your business has to fit YOU, AS IS.

· You start filling that void.

And once you’ve done that?

You can create your own damn blueprint to follow!

A blueprint that’s built on truth, on reality, on oodles of accurate, super useful information about you, how you work, and what your version of success looks like.

A blueprint that leads to the type of business you WANT to run.

Ready to take this concept to a whole other level of mind-shifting nerdiness AND uncover the tools you need to build a business that feels like an elegant, seamless, and joyful extension of your self? It’s all wrapped up for you right here (with not a sales pitch in sight!)

Inertia vs Executive Dysfunction

As an autistic business owner, I’ve struggled with the inertia that comes with starting and finishing tasks. The concept of “executive dysfunction” never sat well with me, as it felt negative and worked against my philosophy. Instead, I prefer to work with my inertia, finding tools and strategies that help me get started and finish projects. One of those tools was Notion, which initially helped me understand how I work. I recently came across the idea of “autistic inertia” and “monotropism” which resonated with me, as it focuses on momentum carrying our thoughts forward. In this article, I discuss my journey with inertia, productivity tools, and how I navigate the challenges of running a business with these insights.
