I’ve experienced success beyond my wildest dreams with this business. Web design and development come naturally to me. PDCD happened organically without any forethought or plan in place because when you’re having fun you forge forward. I didn’t need to make money, I was happy living on a single salary. I was able to forge forward because I had no fear. Nothing to lose and everything to gain. I don’t say that to brag (eww gross), but to encourage. Do you have fun doing something? Maybe you’re supposed to do that. Maybe it’s going to make you an insane amount of money, and even better, bring you an enormous amount of joy, but you haven’t given it a try.
As I continue to grow this business I’ve begun to set goals. I am admittedly not a business person, which is why I share what I’ve learned here on the blog with you. It’s not something that comes natural for me and not something I’m passionate about. I enjoy it to the extent that I love learning new things and sharing them with others, but that’s where it ends. I don’t revel in analyzing numbers or the why behind stats. I’m a creative. My goals and dreams reflect that of a creative. A creative that wants to do earth shattering, world changing things. I dream big. I want to change lives. In terms of web design that may sound a bit dramatic, but a website can help anyone achieve their dreams.
A website can bring clean water to sub-saharan Africa. – The Water Project
A website can help educate, feed and clothe children in Peru. – Help One Now
A website can spread awareness for causes you might not otherwise hear about. – Girls Not Brides
A website can provide much needed comic relief throughout the day. – theCHIVE
A website is the platform for your dreams. A means for you to share your mission. A place to help motivate. A springboard to help bring about social change. Your internet home. I consider this here blog my online living room. Where I can talk to my friends, encourage and help you along your journey. I take great pride in creating themes that will help you achieve your wildest, most spectacular dreams.
What is it that you’ve always dreamed of being in the back of your mind, but never actually said out loud because.. that would be crazy?!
Do it now.
Say it out loud.
I’m talking, crazy big spectacular dreams.
“I want to be President.”
“I want to start a business that improves the lives of others.”
“I want to invent _____.”
“I want to find a cure for ____.”
Is it crazy? Or is it actually entirely possible, but extremely daunting? Why should someone else be able to achieve that dream, but it’s crazy for you to even think about? That feeling is actually fear disguised as inadequacy. The truth is you can do it. You ARE smart enough, determined enough, brave enough, and strong enough to do anything. The truth is also that your crazy dream is likely going to require an enormous amount of effort on your part, and that’s scary. As you work through these thoughts, my hope is you’re able to see that anything is possible and expand your thought process to include world changing efforts.
What is your spectacular dream?
What do you “want to be when you grow up”? Before life got in the way, and all sorts of hurdles were thrown at you?
What brings you joy?
What tugs at your heart strings?
What lights a fire within you?
