Each year a family of sparrows arrives and builds their nest under my deck. I’m lucky to have my own bird’s eye view from where I can watch the adult birds busy themselves feeding their chicks. I’ve also watched the tiny birds grow and test out their downy wings while still in their protective confines.
Lately the three chicks have been vying for space — which is becoming increasingly cramped. The adult sparrows have also been reducing their feeding visits.
This morning, suddenly there were only two chicks in the nest. At first my heart sank knowing I had missed the first anxious flight of the most brave. Then I spied the little adventurer settled atop our grill, a few feet away. “Good. He hasn’t gone too far,” were my first thoughts.
Seeing the fledgling close to its nest…but out, calmed my own fears about launching too soon. For months a new product idea has been taking shape. Looking back, it has really been two years in the making, coming about after my tentative journey into WordPress, hand coding, online marketing, and content management.
Today, my idea is still in the nest, but has been flapping its wings — a lot!
Providence moved in the day I won an hour-long VIP session with Marilee Tolen at The Rise Event. Speaking with Marilee gave me total clarity about my product offering — Yes! My idea had finally broken through its shell!. My coach, Sue Guiher, continues to keep me directed, enthusiastic, and on track. Guidance from Julia Donnelly, a gracious and highly skilled project manager, helps me plan for a successful outcome. None of this, however, could have taken shape without being introduced to the Signature System concept from Christine Gallagher in her transformational Impact Academy.
Just like the little sparrows that have become fledglings before my very eyes, it’s time to launch my big idea so I can feed myself and grow my business.
