I have a favorite quote from the writer, John Updike. He said, “Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”  And without that possibility, we would find it harder to be drawn forward into the future life we want to create for ourselves.
Part of that future life for intrepid, entrepreneurial women like us is to spend our time doing work that is creative, fulfilling and profitable. Letting your dreams guide you will help you know when you’ve found your true work.
To give you a helping hand along the way, and a nudge or two of encouragement, here are 10  tips you can use along the way to starting your dream business and turning your passions into profits.
  1. Follow your heart. Only you know what your heart’s desire truly is, so it’s up to you to let that knowledge be your ultimate guide.
  2. Know your strengths. Build on what you know, and on the skills you have. They are your foundation.
  3. Pursue life with passion. Do the things that light you up from the inside out.
  4. Be positive in the face of adversity. Like the winter storms that will surely pass, adversity is not here to stay. Your positivity will help you meet your challenges.
  5. Listen to your inner voice and let it guide you. You can always rely on your inner wisdom to keep you headed in the right direction.
  6. Know that it’s never too late to be who you’re meant to be. You may just be a late bloomer.  Everything unfolds in its appropriate time for each of us.
  7. Keep moving forward. You may get discouraged, but as long as you are moving in the direction of your dreams, you will get there.
  8. Believe that anything is possible. Because it is!
  9. Be courageous. Courage is a way of acting on the belief you have in yourself. You believe you can do what needs to be done, and then you are able to do it.
  10. Stay curious. New opportunities will appear. Being open to them, ready to explore them and take advantage of them, will take you a long way towards your dreams.

I hope you find these tips helpful. What are your dreams?  What kind of work do you imagine doing, if you’re not already doing it now? I’d love to know your thoughts.
