Success is not a “one size fits all” plan. The variables that contribute to YOUR unique version of being successful can be honed into and defined if you develop and tie back to a value statement which is personal to you.
It doesn’t mean you need to get a fancy game-plan or try to emulate someone else’s trajectory. It means you need to get clear and clean up / establish your voice and who you are or want to talk to when sharing your work.
Be it teaching, coaching, running a studio and more, a value statement is like keeping your 9 Volt batteries updated in your smoke alarms. STOP letting them go off at 2 am (because you know that always happens) and get a good night of sleep knowing who your audience truly is and then reach out and talk to them.
