I love a success story, especially one that is born out of trying to make the world a better place, which was why I was so moved by this story...
At the beginning of lockdown, Artist Mathew Burrows, like many of us was worried about his livelihood & his industry. But rather than sitting around having a pity party about it, he decided to do something about it.
His idea was to help artists sell their work by creating a culture of trust & generosity. - you post work on Instagram for no more than £200 & when you reach £1,000 of sales, you had to buy another artist’s work. The innovative concept has taken off on Instagram & generated more than £48m in sales since lockdown.
Wow. Just wow. Doesn't that just warm your heart? Think how many artists and their families could be on the breadline right now if he'd hadn't taken action on his idea?
So, bringing that back to business coaching...it got me thinking about how many of us have inspired ideas but fail to act on them because we're scared it wouldn't work. Or that we are too old, too young or not experienced enough.
Do you have any inspired ideas that you have not acted on? If so, get with a coach to breathe some life into them!
Or are you living the dream?
