I love helping others. I love giving people ideas on how to be creative with their branding message or their business until one day, a person very dear to my heart told me to stop giving away ideas for free. That people need to pay me for everything I come up with. That I’m short-changing myself and doing myself a disservice by freely advising or sharing ideas.
It dawned on me that maybe that person was right? What was I thinking wasting ideas on people who aren’t paying me my worth! So I became fearful with sharing free advice or tips.
Until I came across Maya Angelou’s quote (below). It helped confirm what I knew deep in my gutt that I’m not the least bit worried about the ideas I share or the free advice I give others because I genuinely want to help. I realized after talking to numerous people that I never really get stumped when it comes time for thinking of ideas. My ideas flow like Niagra Falls baby! 🙂
So I stopped fearing that I will run out of ideas and most especially, I stopped fearing that people are running away with free advice because guess what???? I also realized that people who try to run with my ideas don’t really know what to do next, so eventually they need me to execute it!
