I got my nonprofit, Compass Yoga, up and running while continuing to work full-time. I found partners, free space, free legal counsel to incorporate, and free ways to market our classes effectively online. It was amazing to see how much we could do for $0!
I think working as a writer and creative entrepreneur who lives in a farming hamlet helps me innately be resourceful in order not just to survive but to thrive. Farmers find a hundred uses for whatever materials they have in the barn. So do sculptors. So do entrepreneurs. So, in 2011 I maintained my inner resources – my meditation & YAM practices – but I also grew my outer resources. I fed my friendships. I fed my partnership with my wife. The YAM Tribe teems with resourceful energy and ideas.
And for 2012, I think Christa speaks to one of our business aims: Grow the team. We’re analyzing duties, defining job accountability matters, and seeking people to fill part-time positions.
I drew from my inner resources of creativity, strength, flexibility and focus as I sought to maintain balance in my life this year. In the coming year, I’d like to call more on my outer resources… friendships, relationships, community, collaboration!
