|Last week I talked about how I kinda-sorta planted a garden.
I know NOTHING about gardening other than… plants? How do they work? MAGIC?!
So this was the grand adventure for me, as someone who’s never ever had a garden but has some interest in growing food.
The bravest of my children have climbed forth from the darkness… now I’m just counting down the days until I can eat them. LOL
There’s a point in all this humble-bragging about my non-garden, I promise. And it’s this: I have no idea what I’m doing.
I’m just trying shit out and seeing what happens. What’s happening is apparently magic vegetable (and tuber!) stuff that I don’t understand.
But I decided I wanted to do a thing. I did some basic research. And I did the thing.
I bring it up because this is something I’ve been wanting to experiment with for ages… only every time I’d start reading up on it I’d immediately shut down with overwhelm from growing zones and soil amendments and pest control and different types of pots and DON’T FORGET THE TRELLIS BECAUSE THOSE BEANS CLIMB OMG.
For years I did nothing because doing something seemed like way too much.
But look at my plant babies, yo. LOOK AT THEM.
I put a sprouted potato and some green beans in the dirt and now I have baby beans and taters.
Sometimes you just gotta do shit and see what happens.
Angie: just do shit.

That brings us to…

One thing my coaching students seem to love (I still don’t quite understand, but now I know better than to hold back…) are my rants.
I don’t believe in getting ranty about shit you can’t do anything about. That’s a recipe for frustration and eventually depression.
When I rant it’s usually because I feel SO FREAKING PASSIONATELY about your potential. And being a few steps ahead of you on the path, I can see a few steps you can take that would change the whole forward trajectory you’re on.
But I get that it’s scary for you to take those steps, because I remember what it was like not knowing what happens next.
Here’s the thing though… that’s part of the whole entrepreneurial package. It’s probably 20% “known” and 80% “unknown”. And yet, as the business owner/freelancer/side hustler/consultant you are… you’re gonna have to come up with answers for those unknowns.
So this week’s video is all about how you approach answering questions and solving problems (hint: Google is your friend) (double hint [if that’s a thing – oooh brackets in parentheticals!]: your network might have answers for you too – just make sure it’s not a question Google could have answered first, otherwise you risk taking more than you’re giving by asking too many questions).
