I am reading the book Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul by Stuart Brown, M.D. It’s shifting my perspective and filling in a lot of the blanks for me about life design and my own natural way of being. This is likely to be one of the defining moments of my life, like first learning about Jungian analytical psychology, or having my first course in play therapy, or finding my three creative self-employment muses, Valerie Young, Barbara Winter, and Barbara Sher.

Serendipity again! This time the person pointing me to the exact information I need is, most appropriately, Barbara Winter, the Joyfully Jobless Muse.
I am presenting a series of three calls for the Outside the Job Box Career Experts Program on amplifying and honing your Vision for your business, identifying the Goals that take you to fulfilling your Vision, and breaking Goals into Next Steps with Accountability. I spent the time at my son’s soccer practice last night thinking about how to help the consultants stay focused on the core of their business design and their priorities for being self-employed.
This new framework I’m developing started a month or so ago. I was trying out new tag lines for my coaching business and kept coming back to the metaphor of a journey and the importance of the compass.
Thanks, Barbara. Now I have another great resource to share with the consultants, and with anyone who pulls over for a rest stop here On The Twisting Road.
