It was their second show with a live audience and their guest was none other than OPRAH WINFREY. I have grown to just love Oprah and she shares her wisdom from building herself as a mogul. Her entrepreneurial stories are amazing because she shares success, failure, feelings, etc. My ears perked up because she said that she has a mantra for new things she tackles and she also makes this mantra advice for anyone she talks to that asks for advice...its simple, and yet complicated: "Name it and then create it."
"Name it and then create it"...I felt this twinge of confidence and wanted to yell, "YES!" One of the first things I do in ideation is to come up with a basic framework and then I dive into what it can be named. In the last month, I took two large bins of sketches, notes, and more all with various frameworks, names, acronyms, graphics...and I sorted, purged, shared some with others that can use them in marketing campaigns, and then combined some things that should go together. I redefined my one business and I started another...and am collaborating on a third which is a hybrid business/non-profit social venture...ALL as a result of this need to create from idea to action.
The last few months have been the best of my creative energy...going through all of these things, getting a new computer, setting up a powerhouse of monitors in my office, organizing and strategizing my own work, and reconnecting with people and networking. It feels like a ROAR of energy. Meanwhile, I was posting lioness pictures and photos of strength through this process and they were well received. There it was...a name...so, Oprah's mantra was happening before I realized her mantra was a thing. I named it, and am now creating it. Listening to her, I was affirmed. DO IT!
So...without further ado...Welcome Lioness Creative, LLC...may your journey as a business take on a life of it's own...Creative...Empowered...and STRONG!
