You might not know this, but The Soul Map™ — my beloved business + bodacious life’s work — emerged out of three words: “I dare you.”
It was three years ago, and I was working as a (fairly conventional) life + small business coach, making a (fairly modest) living.
Though I never, ever dared to talk about it in “public,” I was already a seasoned + passionate astro-seer.
For decades, I’d obsessively studied cultural shifts, business innovation, economic meltdowns, even protests + wars — fascinated by the way that they (always) aligned with celestial patterns. And when I wasn’t doing that, I spent over 1,000 hours interviewing thought-leaders + change-makers from every discipline, around the world — just to better understand the nature of change + uncertainty (and, as it turned out, calling + purpose).
I felt a tug at my soul, urging me to bring my astrological superpowers “out of the closet” — and use them to help people better understand their purpose + business potential. Not to mention the global change-movement afoot…
But I was scared of losing everything I’d worked so hard to build — professional credibility, a sensible online persona, and clients who trusted me.
“It’s daring to be curious about the unknown, to dream big dreams, to live outside prescribed boxes, to take risks, and above all, daring to investigate the way we live until we discover the deepest treasured purpose of why we are here.” —Luci Swindoll
So I kept my lips zipped. Until … two sistafriends + clients dared me to try something different.
The challenge? Slap up a website. Accept the call to announce your astro-genius to the world. Give it one month. See what transpires.
The response was over-the-moon overwhelming. After just a few weeks I was booked solid for 6 months. The business took on a breath, pulse + life of its own. And today — 3 years later — we’re growing, evolving + still going strong.
If I’d allowed my assumptions + insecurities to rule the day … if I’d said, “no thank you, darlings” to the women who issued The Dare … if I’d chosen to settle for my near-purpose, instead of my true purpose … If I hadn’t answered ‘the call’… well, The Soul Map™ would never have come into existence. And the world would be missing the very best of my gifts (& I one of my life’s greatest joys…).
A dare changed my life — and now, I dare you to change yours.
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert the integrity of your purpose and vision…” —Cecil Beaton
Over the next 30 days, you’ll receive 30 dares from some of the most brilliant entrepreneurs I know — thought-leaders, transformational speakers, authors, teachers + innovationeers.
Mavericks & Trailblazers like Andrea J. Lee, Jen Louden, Suzanne Falter, Alexandra Franzen, Elizabeth Marshall, Shawn Driscoll, Isabel Parlett, Julie Daley, Eric Klein – just to name a few.
If any of these get-your-groove-on dares captivates you, lean in & pay very close attention. There’s a reason it’s grabbing your heart. A reason you’re seeing it now.
It’s your life telling you its time for you to dare something somewhere…
Lawd knows, we need all hands on deck these days, daring with the best & boldest our minds + hearts + souls have to offer. But daring, even when you know you need to (or must) isn’t easy.
Which is why, all January long, we’ve got 30 Dares for you…
LISTEN. THEN DO IT. DARE.
You just never know where one good dare’ll lead…
Or how much it’ll change … for good.
