Previously, my work vocabulary has been filled with words like strategy, communication, flow and infrastructure. Creating healthy business infrastructure and efficient systems was my passion. I also had a passion in my private life for how individuals develop and sustain mental and physical health.
In the last few years, I have had an increased focus on the individual. In response to this, I have deepened my study of therapies and life style strategies that support wellness and healing. Over time, this interest has increased to a full time level.
This year, I made the decision to shift my professional work focus to massage therapy and natural health. Ironically, I am continuing to help start ups and small business owners in business development, but it has become more of a hobby and side interest.
At first, I struggled with how to explain such a drastic shift to my networking community. It seemed so random and extreme. I realized that this change was not random. It was two sides to the same coin, the development and sustainability of the organism versus the organization, Both function in very similar ways. The patterns for healthy development and the patterns for disruption are similar in both, but I will save those details for a future post. How I think about my work is similar, but the subject matter and technique has changed. I am excited to see how this new field of focus grows and develops me professionally and personally.
