Clients using their purpose to help themselves and others
Tota Mukherjee - CEO of Soldsie.com
Our purpose is about “Ease and Excitement” and focusing on that during these times has been really helpful. We continue to make our service as simple as possible which helps our clients and their clients. And we are exploring ways to serve new clients as they look for new approaches to connect with and serve their clients. These aren’t easy times but having our purpose in place helps us find things to be excited about and that feels like a win.
Dan Holley - Educator and host of the Social Cohesion Podcast
Working remotely is something I had done before, and wasn't over the moon about doing it for a longer period of time. Particularly when you're responsible for young vulnerable lives as I am.
I was investigating within myself what would bring more excitement and enthusiasm to working from home this time round, so I spoke to the learners that I coach, and we had a creative session on what I could do, and what they would want me to do during isolation. Some of them were particularly nervous as their homes, were sadly not their "homes".
We talked about creating a YouTube channel, that wasn't about teaching math or English, as that wasn't my role. I was invited to run guided meditation, read books, offer advice on positivity and activity, and run general LIVE Q&As with them. This opened up to become a national project. Now, selfishly so, I cannot wait to begin working on this daily. Keeping myself and others engaged, entertained and best of all mentally stable!
Jenny Kuspira - Author and Puppeteer
Happiness is my thing and while I don’t think about it every day it definitely has been in my thoughts more since all this started. I’ve been thinking about how the small things make me happy and I’ve been slowing down and appreciating my day to day life.
And I started thinking about how I can bring some smiles and laughter to other people so I resurrected a puppet routine that I haven’t done in 20 years and started putting videos of me and Willy (my puppet) on Facebook. I’m not sure what will come of this but I know performing makes me happy and I’m hoping I can bring some happiness to families as they are stuck at home.
Wade Galt - Coach and Entrepreneur
I'm about freedom and that has been very helpful in these times. First it allows me to be myself and go with what ever emotions come up throughout the day. And that is actually really helpful because when I'm grounded that gives me the foundation to let others be free with. what ever is going on for them.
Everyone is so stressed and worried for all the obvious reasons that I'm finding if I can just let them be, then they can relax and we can connect. And from there we can figure out solutions for what they are dealing with. This has really reminded me about the power and importance of freedom.
Christine Gold - Holistic Practitioner
Knowing my purpose has been really helpful. As things changed, I started to feel the overwhelm like everyone else but I reminded myself about who I am and what I offer the world. That helped me start thinking globally and from that I organized a 4 hour virtual healing event. That was wonderful for myself and the attendees.
Ted Prodromou - Author and Linkedin Coach
My purpose has been helping me because I've been really sick. Not sure if I had the virus or not but I was out for a good week or so. And rather than trying to impress people, I just got real and authentic with them and let them know what was going on in my world.
The interesting part is that I got a huge response from that and now I'm helping my clients get creative in ways to generate income so they can pay their bills and mortgages. This is isn't easy but the more grounded I am in me, the better I feel at helping people. Which in turn helps me keep moving forward.
Kerry Ettinger - Mortgage Professional
I'm about people being stoked and that may sound funny in these times but it's so important. Thinking about it has me think about how can I help this person, in this situation and make the best of what is going on. I'm helping them get a handle on their debt and their cash flow in what ever way I can. And what I'm seeing is that when we can take that weight off their shoulders, they have the space to relax, feel comfortable and maybe even feel a little stoked. It's all baby steps at this point.
And personally, it's helping me figure out a way work and be with my family. We have a 4 year old it's tough to give him all the attention he needs. But when I think of bringing the stoke (which I write across the top of my todo list every day) it helps me get out of overwhelm and figure out ways to make things work.
