The secret is to find your passion.
People ask me all the time how I came up with the idea for Mixin Mingle.
It’s such a long story, how it all went down.
I can tell you I felt lost nearly all of my childhood and into my adult life. I didn’t know what I was really good at, or how I could find my place in this world.
Other people seemed to have their answers, and their lives appeared to be in control. I really wanted what they had, but more than anything, I wanted to find my passion, so I went looking for it at work, at school, at home, wherever. I started thinking I was just getting really good at checking things off my life to-do list, but none of it made me feel alive.
I decided to see a therapist to help me sort things out, but this doctor didn’t treat me like any other expert I had seen before (hours upon hours of talking = problem still unresolved). Instead, this doctor used hypnosis and worked to help me go within and to release what was blocking me at the subconscious level.
I consider what he did for me nothing short of a miracle, because my answers came to me one day as I was standing in my kitchen doing dishes. How mundane is that by the way?!? Dishes. Of all things....
Anyhow, I knew right away good things were happening because all these ideas started to flood my mind, and I suddenly felt this huge burst of energy and a deep certainty that I needed to get started and create it right away (time was ticking, ya know).
So I just went and did it--just like everyone else who I had seen blindly following their passion.
I never considered myself capable of being an entrepreneur, but today I marvel at the fact that I created a business from scratch--that the idea came from inside of me, and it wasn’t just some cheap knock-off I copied from someone somewhere else (trust me, I googled the matter for days in disbelief it didn’t exist yet).
The path to getting here has been a thrill ride with plenty of highs and lows, but I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
Opening a business is terrifying. But when you’re doing it because you are following your passion and have nothing to prove to anyone but yourself, nobody will be able to stop you.
