Love what you do and your tribe will follow

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love.
Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing,
and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”
~ Maya Angelou

What this quote means to women entrepreneurs:
I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating: When you love what you do, you are more motivated to keep doing it, especially during the tough times. You are also more motivated to do it right, well and effectively.

This all translates to consistency in your business. Consistency in that you keep doing it, but also consistency in customer service excellence.

When you are a person driven by passion and you lose your way because of hard times — aka you start working for money and not any other reason — you will find that you aren’t effective and you stay in struggle much longer. I’ve been there. I’ve done that. And it is not a pretty site.

To be truly successful in your business, especially in the business of authoring, speaking and coaching, you need to be riveting to your ideal clients. Your tribe will be so enamored that they can’t take their eyes off you. It is very hard to accomplish that level of engagement when you don’t love what you do. People sense when you are being inauthentic and are just trying to pry money out of their wallets. And they will turn from you.

So make your business an expression of what you love to do. Hone your skills, provide the best service, be riveting and you will succeed.
