It's Not WHAT You Know - Is It?
Monday Musings, M'Dears!
Hey, friends! I took a little stroll this morning. I'm loving the sunshine! Mountain weather is a different topic all together, but here, if the sun is shining and it's 25 degrees F, it feels very close to 40! Such was my fate this morning. By 9:30, I knew I couldn't just pass up the opportunity for fresh air and sunshine! I put on my rubber boots (it's really muddy out these days) and took off toward the river!
I enjoy walks. I especially like them when accompanied by a friend. However, this morning was solo, and that's okay, too! When I am alone, I'm able to think. Recently, my thoughts revolve around the business and WA. I was on a roll right away and had a few things locked (or so I thought) in my memory to write about later. But then...
Happened to you? You think there's no way you'll forget what was on your mind. You carry on. All of a sudden, something happens to distract you and boom! Safely stored thoughts are gone! In my case, my distraction happened in the form of seeing a cow elk on top of the ice covered river that flows nearby my home. She was just lying on top of the ice, which cannot be too thick these days.
If you know me, you know that I adore the wide range of wildlife in my state of Colorado. When an opportunity presents itself to witness such beauty, I get completely caught up in it. Unfortunately, all I had on me was my phone, so the picture quality wasn't that great. Then I did what I usually do when I have bragging rights; call my dad! He, too, loves the elk, so I needed to rub it in a little. Total distraction.
When it became apparent that I had time to sit and write, I only slightly forgot my topics! I had to back-track through my entire walk. I remembered where I was when I was thinking of WA, and I was able to come full circle back to my topic - whew! (Tell me that's happened to you!) Thanks for hanging in here with me! You're a rock star - my mumbling... Let's get back to the topic!
What vs. Who
I was thinking about the phrase, "It's not what you know, it's who you know". I don't want to minimize knowledge. I believe it is extremely important. In fact, how many of us can admit that without the knowledge to be found within this platform, we'd still know nothing about affiliate marketing or building a website?! Knowledge is absolutely something we need to build a foundation upon - specifically as an entrepreneur.
But what about WHO? This is where my thoughts went until I was interrupted by my new friend, Miss Elk. The fact is, while knowledge is critical, so are the people we know and choose to share our life with. There are more than a couple handfuls of you who have blessed my life. It is through conversations with many of you and your help - that has moved me forward on this wonderful entrepreneurial journey.
Training and You
Sure. There's much to be said about the learning within the WA campus! I know you agree. But for those of you who have hesitated to put yourself 'out there' and get to know some other members, you're missing out. It is because of some WA members that I have been able to experience this place with a greater purpose and passion. WA, just like life, is about WHO you know. Get the knowledge. Go through the training. Get to know and hang out with some members you're drawn to! Find those you connect with; you'll help each other. Doing so will enhance your life!
The weight of the quote has me in deep thoughts today, but it's been a great time of reflecting on what really matters to me. Is it life's 'stuff' or invaluable humans? I think you know my answer and I have the utmost feelings of gratitude and love for so many of you! You're all pieces to my puzzle of life! Thank you!! Leave me a note and tell me your thoughts on the what versus who scenario.
Ciao For Now!
