    These are questions that few people ever ask themselves, and often just continue through life going from one expected thing to another, without ever evaluating what they truly want. Bravo! You are brave to ask the questions (and answer them) in a public way….already you are an inspiration to me. I am very proud of you!
    Lots of love and hugs are being telepathically sent to you over the great sea….xoxox

    Hi Lesley, it’s so great to see that are in fact others struggling with similar thoughts. I aspire your will to take on the challenge and your courage to post your thoughts online, which is in a way exposing yourself to potential criticism. Yet I’m convinced it’s the only way to reaching your goal: exposing yourself. Like you say: how else would anyone even know of your existence, let alone why you do what you do. I mention why, because I read on your other blog that you were reading this book ‘Why’. I saw a presentation by the author on the this subject on TEDTalks.com and really started me thinking about consumers and marketing. I really think that this book is a very valuable asset in the process of branding yourself. What also struck me, is how you describe you’d like to assist businesses that are looking for a still too neglected value of helping each other. Indeed, too much is it still a situation of ‘the winner takes it all’, whereas – in my opinion – it’s quite clear that the true, albeit longterm, profit lies in supporting and helping each other, instead of fighting each other over who gets the most customers. It’s wonderful to see that there are like-minded people, and I’m glad I’m reading their blog 🙂 Keep inspiring all of us, please!
