Yesterday was #InternationalHappinessDay and the start of Spring.
Spring is a great season. It means things change. And get reborn. Or just born.
Trees blossom. Flowers bloom. The sun starts to shine again. You get the idea.
Anyway. inspired by the change in seasons I read something yesterday from Seth Godin. Which made me think (*see blog below). Or maybe that should be RETHINK.
As last week I shut down the business - FreedomFrom and the website www.BeFreeOfType2D.co.uk which was heart breaking for me as I really want to help people STOP having Type 2 Diabetes.
But we never got the idea joint funded, or supported by the NHS in time. And so after spending hundreds of hours of my time and thousands of pounds of my own money - I had to close that chapter of my life. Which was a crying shame...
But perhaps the book hasn't ended.... As.....
Perhaps, I can help people in a different way.
Not a lot of people.
In fact, perhaps only ONE person. But every little helps right?
So if you answer YES to ALL the following - then that person COULD be YOU.
And I could be working with you personally to help you change your life - like I did.
So... 15 questions.
5 easy questions to start off with...
Do you have #Type2Diabetes? Or are you pre-diabetic?
Are you classed as overweight?
Do you want to loose weight?
Do you know you can put #Type2Diabetes into remission with diet?
Do you want to change and put your #Type2Diabetes into remission with diet?
And now the harder ones....
Are you prepared to change everything about what you eat and how you eat?
Are you up for a serious challenge - as this is NOT easy.
Do you have the support of your friends and family - as this changes your live.
Do you have the finances needed to spend 20% more on your food bill at home.
Do you live in the UK? Or on the GMT time line at least.
And some technical questions....
Can you download or do you have downloaded WhatsApp on your mobile phone?
Can your phone take pictures and do videos? And are you prepared to do so.
Do you have internet connection for 24 hours a day?
Are you happy to interact with me at least once a day - for the next 90 days.
Are you happy to be used as a case study / business case / example for the creation of a new course and / or piece of technology. This means ALL our interactions will be kept and your pictures / data used in the future for everyone in the world to see.
So if you answer YES to ALL the above...
Include in your contact details and ALL your relevant social media. And mobile phone number.
And I will be in touch.
I will ONLY use the contact details provided and get back to you with whether you have been chosen.
I will hope to get back to everyone else as well - but no promises.
Exciting huh? And for your inspiration here is the blog by Seth Godin.
The smallest group that could possibly sustain you in your work…
If you could pick the members of this audience, who would you choose? Their dreams, their worldviews, their energy, all up to you.
If you could pick them and needed to delight them because you had no one else available, would your product or service improve? If you had no choice but to ignore the naysayers (they’re not in the group) or the people who don’t think they need you or your work, would that force you to stop compromising and start excelling?
Two things happen when you delight your minimum viable audience:
- you discover it’s a lot larger group than you expected
- they tell the others
On the other hand, if you aim for mass (another word for average), you’ll probably create something average. Which gets you not very far.
My plan is to create something which is FAR from average.
