That's NOT where the story ended. Turns out. It was simply put on pause. The timing wasn't right. The stories I wanted to share were not to be told then. In fact, the stories were meant to be told today with much greater depth and more under my belt.
Fast forward to today. We're in quarantine and it's time to innovate. Think outside the box (I know. Cliche). This is the time. After all, I found my passion. My purpose and my new career all at 51 (in 2018). So it's May and I'm 12 weeks into self-quarantine and time to launch yet another big idea that had sat in my mind for years, on scratch paper and in Evernote. And just like that, no major plan in place (one of my favorite things to do), The Morning Cup launched May 7th laryngitis and all with no need for an agency to lend a hand or own the content.
The show is for US. For us to share stories, uplift and light a fire for others while keeping it real. It's about you, Lupe and me - the women over 40 & 50+ who have been through, around and over it. It's about grabbing your first cup of Joe or hot tea in the morning and savoring its contents. It's a show about you.
So, is this your time?
I'll say it again, get out of your head and pull that old idea from your mind. Dust it off and move. The same goes for the new idea that came to you over one of your restless nights (uh huh. I have them too, girrrl).
Action: Take out a blank sheet of paper and go! Write down all the ideas, tasks and actions and put them into motion. Start. It.
To help get you going, download this worksheet to brain dump and plot your next steps. And let me know how it goes. Lupe and I are here for you. I'm at Barbara@bloomcopresents.com.
