Life is a journey just like your business. Things are always changing in the vast landscape of online business but the one thing that always stays the same is that you need to stand out from the crowd. Your branding needs to catch attention, and be on point. There are so many steps to getting started and to keeping the journey going it is scary and daunting!
The things that all successful business owners and entrepreneurs know is that you must ADAPT!!
ADAPTING is NOT easy.
“And the most successful people are those who accept, and adapt to constant change. This adaptability requires a degree of flexibility and humility most people can’t manage.” Paul Lutus

You do have to change with the landscape. When you feel like your business needs a new exciting trail then start a new exciting trail but don't wander to far away from your original path. This wandering can be a large downfall to many. When you have created a business soul plan (your journey path) stick to it! Do not let false hopes carry you away from the hard facts.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” Winston S. Churchill
Wanderlust Tip #2
You will fail at somethings, and this is not something to be ashamed of. In fact just reframe it as "this didn't work, how do I make it work or what can I do this time that will work?" During the course of opening and running a business, your journey as I like to call it, there will be times when a course does not sell, or a product is not selling how you hoped, or your having trouble with your employees. There are so many blips in this journey that if you gave up after the first one you would never see all of the amazing successes that are just waiting on the other side of the wall.
Don't Give Up
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin.
Wanderlust Tip #3
Plan. Things can get done without planning but they won't be done right. I have met so many people that just decide to start a business. No business plan, no idea on finances, no business number, no social media plan and most of all no clue. This is not their fault. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey. Together we walk through what is a business plan, what is the next step, and the next step.... and then the next step and guess what after lots of thought and lots of work the journey is well afoot and life is looking good. Learning how to plan is not an easy task, especially if your like me and love to wing life! I mean I am Gyspy Soul Fempreneur, but the biggest lesson I have learnt in this business is that planning is key. I will have a short Business starter checklist and business plan available for free.
