Welcome to my first blog post under the Vivid360 banner!
For the past several months, I’ve been working to answer the question: “What do I want to be when I grow up?” But since no one ever wants to answer that, I decided that a better question to answer is: “What has this crazy life journey positioned me to do next?”
I was lukewarm...really almost resistant... to the idea of being a consultant. Did the world really need another one of those?? Maybe not, but could it use a ME?
Recently my college-age son described something as Michele-ified. “What on earth does that mean?” I asked. He replied, “You know...when you take something ordinary and make it totally amazing; or you take what looks like nothing and turn it into something incredible. Then it’s been Michele-ified.” Wow. I promise that was an unsolicited moment of clarity.
I have to admit...that has been an underlying theme in both my professional and personal life. Smart kid. And a new word for the Urban Dictionary!
So regardless of whether the world needs another consultant, I know it can use some Michele-ification.
I have worked in small business for more than 20 years, and that’s where my passion and focus remain. Using systems like the Entrepreneurial Operating System in the book Traction by Gino Wickman, is one way I can help other business owners and their teams get organized; get healthy; and go from good to Michele-ified!
So cheers to new chapters...and the official launch of Vivid360! Here we go!
Shout out to my friends at Wheelie Creative for their incredible work on the Vivid brand and logo. Thanks for making me look good.
