Entrepreneurs are consistently working to improve, learn new things, and determine what’s the next step. We have to be mindful about who we choose to learn from.
Quite frankly, I am guru’d out – what is your truth, and tired of hearing the same thing from many of them. Much of it is repeated information, just worded differently. Too often from the same person.
I listened to a webinar the other day…so excited because of the person leading it is someone I enjoy learning from. It took me a minute, but when I realized it was a repeat, I was disappointed and felt like I wasted my time.
The reason behind this post:
I LOVE to cook. Anyone who knows me, knows that. I was watching the Food Network and one of my favorite shows is Guy’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. This particular episode visited a soul food restaurant in St. Louis (Sweetie Pies’s) and their discussion was about what made soul food…soul food.
The owner explained that soul food is when you pour your “love” into what you cook.
She reminded me of those days I hung out in the kitchen, learning how to cook from my grandmother through helping her. After all, home cooking is a learned thing from our grandparents and parents, cooking with love; the true anchor of the family. Right?
It lead me to reflect on those that I follow through these various social networking channels, and/or signed up to receive their emails; have I chosen the right people? Does their teachings reflect the “love” they have for their products and services?
Who’s Teaching You – Who are You Listening To?
Who is teaching us through their demonstration of love, authentic love through sharing? Does it make a difference?
I now realize that those that authentically convey their love for what they are doing, are those that I want to hear from. If I don’t feel that rather quickly…off I go to looking for someone else to learn from.
Is love the same as passion? Not sure about that…what do you think?
For me, I love what I do because it allows me to have freedom and provides an avenue to polish and shine my skills.
My passion is helping my clients to succeed. My passion is taking the extra step for a client that believes in my abilities and has the confidence that what I am handling for them will help their business.
Are you sharing love, passion or both? Would love to hear you opinion below
- What is it that draws you to select one person over another in the same industry?
- What other traits attracts you to that person or business?
- Is it the “love” they display for their product or service? Does it matter to you or not?
