The best way I know how to develop good habits is to blog about them.
Hey! I'm Nicole St. Germain, Mastermind Evangelist, Chief Butter Officer of homemadebutter.co, productivity enthusiast and ultimate potty mouth. By day, I'm working with bloggers to help grow their reach at ConvertKit, and by night, I'm cooking homemade and convincing everyone I know to start a blog.
I think we find what we're good at by accident. That means, we have to try a lot of things we think we might be good at, and find a lot of things we're really, really bad at before we know what's right. I'm still trying--I consider every creative project I tackle an experiment. Like, how can I create a food blog I actually want to subscribe to? How can I be "multipassionate" in a world of ultra-focusing and niching down? How can I grow a career and a side business at the same time?
I'm not a productivity guru, or a personal development junkie. I like to learn about these things and try to apply them to my life as experiments, and then document that experience here, in the hopes that it's helpful to others.
I started writing about masterminds for online business when I realized the transformative power it was having on my own personal development. Masterminds are your business's trusted advisors, they can help you make major decisions, lend valuable perspective to help you see opportunities you might have missed. Most importantly, your mastermind is comprised of other business owners in the same boat. They know exactly what you are going through because they are going through it themselves. Not only do you get advisors for your business, you are the advisor for 5 other businesses--that's an education in itself.
