Heather Cannon CEO of Hip Chick Industries is officially starting a Blog!!
Lately I’ve been focusing on “remembering what’s important”. In the past, well let’s be honest, year I’ve been struggling to make a business out of aprons. Let me tell you producing a product is the easy part! Compared to a harsh wake-up call or an unresponsive market.
I mean I guess instead of over thinking my situation and not taking action, I went head long into full production of multiple products. I dove into trade shows and car shows. I hit the world at 1,000 MPH. Everything was smooth sailing until: the impact of the profit vs. loss statement in quarter 2 kicked in, that is.
Then some fear started to set in. I started living in fear of disastrous failure. In fact until this week I’d been completely crippled by it. Unable to move forward and getting lost in endless distractions. I lost myself and my confidence. So sad 😦
My first action step forward was to make a list of really important things for me to live by in every aspect of my life.
The following things are important to Heather Cannon:
(although, not in order of importance)
8. Follow through
12. Self Respect
14. Peace of Mind
21. Building a strong Future
Once I got the list put together, I realized I had nothing to fear. I just needed to be a true representation of this list. For myself, my family and within my business. Stepping out of fear seems to be a daily process at times but at least now I recognize that.
Remembering what’s important is knowing who you are and what you stand for. Having a list around the house, in the car or in your office is a great way to avoid the “fear factor.”
Until next time,
