I Have A *Team* Now

I just scheduled my first ever Cult of Personality team meeting, because—wait for it—I HAVE A *TEAM* NOW.

Would you like to hear some profound musings about growth? How about the importance of asking for help, or letting other people help you? (They’re not the same, you know.)

Or perhaps you’re interested in some shiny happy celebrity entrepreneur bullsh*t about paying other people to do the things I don’t like, because those unpleasant tasks are beneath me now?

Well. Too bad! <cackles>

Today, you’re getting this realness—

Mostly, this feels pretty surreal to me. 😯

~ What will I say in this team meeting?
~ Am I actually meant to be in charge?
~ Am I a leader now?
~ Was I always a leader?
~ Is ‘winging it’ a good approach? Because that’s what we’re going with. 😉

🤨 Online entrepreneurs love to preach about how HARD it is to hire, onboard, and retain team members.

So far, this hasn’t been my experience at all. Onboarding is kind of clunky when you’ve been doing everything yourself for a long time…

… but I’m just being honest about what I want, who I am, what my strengths & weaknesses are, and how I really feel at any given moment, and so far it’s going like gangbusters.

Perhaps hiring is hard when people act cagey and don’t tell the whole truth? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Emails for cult thought leaders.

(Personality included.)

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
