The Power of Broke …
As Daymond John states in his book, The Power of Broke, starting a business from broke forces you to think more creatively. It forces you to use your resources more efficiently. It forces you to connect with your customers more authentically, and market your ideas more imaginatively. And that’s when we thought a blog post around this exact topic would be a great idea. A little story about breaking up with debt so-to-speak. So, dive on in then drop us a note in the comments with your thoughts on “The Power of Broke” …
I have a long background in the arts (both digital and with paint) and have also worked with my fair share of non-profits, so I feel like I know a thing or two about being broke. And, it’s not fun! But sometimes struggling can give you a different perspective on things and can help heighten your creativity. Bringing that feeling of really being alive. I truly feel that there are many ways for one to be creative – thinking outside the box, making things work with limited resources, using old things in brand new ways and so on. In fact, creativity is born out of necessity. If we don’t have it, we figure out how to make it. Not all the right ingredients in our pantry? We improvise and (hopefully) come up with something that tastes even better. What I’m getting at here is there are endless amounts of possibilities and potential no matter the size of your business or your wallet. Just breathe … Give yourself some space … And let creativity take over!
Here are TWO simple ways a little lack in mullah can benefit your Muse:
Mental Bandwidth: As a professional (even if not working in a creative niche), your imagination is your most precious resource. So when your wallet is feeling light but your motivation is running high, you need to be good at managing your mental and emotional state (mindset, heartset, bodyset) so that you can get into the creative zone when it’s time to get busy and get working. So, when you want into your office or studio, or hop on yet another Zoom call, you are 100% present, focused and ready to work. You are in the zone.
(For those of you Lord of The Rings nerds like me, the image if for you! And for those of you feeling clueless on the reference, watch the movie or read the books. You’re missing out!)
Inspiring Experiences: You cannot create something original by recycling other people’s ideas. Without a rich life experience, it will be hard to come up with anything meaningful. (And we all know that in order to have business growth, our audience want to feel connect and engaged.) So, if you have the friends, the time and energy and the inclination then a little creativity and resources, even with a lack of funds, can be an amazing catalyst towards some life enhancing experiences. And from those, inspiration is born.
