Why are you doing this? How does it support your Happiness?
Wheather you’re building a business, starting a movement, or donating your time, I want you to ask yourself:
Why am I doing this?
That’s the real question, isn’t it? Whatever you are building in your life that’s the question you need to ask yourself.
Why are you doing this whole “entrepreneur” thing? If you don’t have a real good reason for doing it then I can almost guarantee that it will be hard to keep it up. Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy so before you continue down this amazing journey I want you to ask yourself: why?
My why’s are Freedom and Service. The freedom to explore the world, meet new people and have fun doing it. And the ability to serve other women and entrepreneurs in creating a better world together.
We all need more freedom in our lives, the freedom to live life on our own terms, to follow our dreams, and create a better future. And claiming that freedom for ourselves is the first step in making the world a better place. Or how Linda Coussement from How it is to Be You so brilliantly puts it:
“When we take responsibility for our own happiness we can through, bring happiness to the world as a whole.”

What is your Why? Or better yet what would bring you happiness? And in doing so bring about a better world.
