Well, we are definitely making progress which feels so good. Here’s a little update for those who might be curious. I’m going to post this both on Lodestone Dynamics and Be Inspired. Lodestone Dynamics LLC is my parent company and the name I’ve been working under for the past year+. Recently, I realized some things about who I am and how I want to show up in the world, both personally and professionally. I ready to show more of who I am and hold back less in my expression. Some who know me might be confused by this because I do express a lot. Here’s the deal (and I think even those who know me will understand).
I often have lacked confidence in my abilities. I have not wanted to take too many risks because of this with my work – more in my personal expression than with clients, although it shows up there as well at times. Literally, on January 4th (is it weird that I can identify this??), I had an epiphany during class about how safe I’d played. How different my work was when it was just for me and I wasn’t worried about what anyone else would think. How I had let go of my initial vision of Lodestone and created this very safe and comfortable brand.
I love the creative process. I love to feel inspired. I want to see myself in everything I do and I want to work with people who feel the same way. I love people who tap into their creativity when it comes to building a business. It is such an important part of success, a necessity really. That’s a really short summary of where I am at and where I am going. In a nutshell, I have created a new look with movement and energy and color. I have filed a DBA (doing business as) for Lodestone and will now be doing business as Be Inspired Design.
This site is still very much in it’s infancy and the Lodestone site will remain indefinitely. I can’t wait to bring out more and more of who I am and express my values to the world, in hopes of encouraging others to do the same.
Until next time…
