There are so many different entrepreneurs out there in so many categories. Some are so inspiring because they faced the decisions we’ve had to make and challenges we’ve had to face. That’s why I love these segments where we get to bring on another entrepreneur and talk to them.
Today our guest is Wendi Blum. She’s a globally recognized speaker, a published author, a business strategist, retreat guru, and she’s helping light the way for men and women in leadership, entrepreneurship and empowerment. She does live workshops, online webinars and activation retreats around the world.
Wendi’s “aha” moment
Wendi had been working in the pharma industry for two decades. She liked what she was doing but still felt like something was missing. It goes back to the roots of passion and purpose. She fell into her career unintentionally like many do. She went to college, got a degree, started thinking about a job, paycheck and building a career. She didn’t know what she didn’t know. She started to want, desire and seek something more. She started on a path of self-development and hired a coach. She started writing out new goals and looking at life and business a little bit differently.
Wendi focuses on the mindset piece. Helping the client create the vision and get really clear about what they want to create. She is doing two things this month on the topic of momentum. Kicking in momentum, getting results and getting things done.
Wendi’s biggest challenges were:
- How to do it. Where do you begin? Who do you trust?
- How do you overcome the fear? You’re embarking on a brand new journey and exploring new terrain so there is fear of the unknown. There’s also fear of failure, fear of embarrassment if you fail, fear of not knowing where to start and fear of being imperfect and making a mistake. Fear can put roadblocks up everywhere we turn.
What gets Wendi out of bed in the morning?
What excites Wendi and gets her out of bed in the morning are the stories the clients share and their results and successes. Wendi’s new student client Dennis had a dream for 15 years of writing a book about beauty from the inside out. He came to one of her workshops and then a second one. He mapped out the process within 45 days and just picked up the copies of his new book The Zen of Beauty last week. These are the stories that excite Wendi.
Wendi is giving away a business planner as a gift for everyone.
