Do you find yourself asking the question of what’s next?
I sure have. Businesses change, business drops off, some new business added and some prospects on the horizon. All very good and normal things in working as a consultant however… What’s next?
I admit that I have been somewhat paralyzed by what to do next. Waking up every morning with a plan, the list and with ideas. Wondering where to put those ideas.
At the beginning of July 2020 I started a fudge company. LizzyJo Fudge was out the gate. I had not thought about it for years or months or days. I actually thought about it one night and the next day found myself working 8 hours treating myself as my own client. Before I knew it I had fudge orders and was making new flavors. But the real question for me was, “What the fudge?”
I did not know what my, “What’s Next” would be in this time of uncertainty. What I do know is that I love cooking. I love working in the kitchen. I love building and growing something. Why not take these days at home wondering what is next and make my what’s next happen.
I guess the purpose of this blog post is to ask yourself the question, “What’s Next?” What can you be doing at home that you love, enjoy and can turn that into a small little business or hobby?
I’m working on big dreams and plans for this fudge company. I sent out my first order to a bakery to consider taking my fudge and selling it. They said, “No”. Then I was reminded that the first no I ever received, when I was 25 years old, was the best no I ever received. A year later I was running a million-dollar company based on that single, “no”.
Whatever ideas are rolling around in your head take that next step. Just step out into the unknowns. Do it!! We all have this extra time on our hands. We cannot allow the thermometer of this culture to be a set back.
Our country was built on opportunity and hard work. The opportunities of WHAT’S NEXT is in your control. It may take some hard work, a few no’s and setbacks. The best ideas start with passion. Passions that can drastically change the trajectory of your future and answer the question of, “What’s Next”.
If you would like help rolling out ideas for what’s next I would love to hear your process. Saying it out loud with an interested party helps to find tune and narrow in on the key elements to get started. I would love to help.
