Power of Why with Wendy Jones

Update: 2021-01-03


Our Power of Why statement will be the driving force of our success or our failure. You will and must have something that pushes you to move when things get tough. It also sets a foundation for how you determine your value in three main areas.


Many of the people who have become successful will have a "Power of Why" story that made them go for the opportunity one more time. There is a higher level of creativity achieved when you are determined to win. That being said, a why that lacks deep roots will surely be carried away during your entrepreneurial journey.

This Power of Why series captures the candid responses from several coauthors of the Power of Why Volume 2 anthology. These entrepreneurs are from different ends of the earth with varying levels of experience that extend over 30 years. It is time for you to experience something greater through the eyes of women and men who are at the level where you are trying to go.

Your impact can be made even when you can't physically be in the room. That statement completely took people by surprise over the last year. The digital space became a hotspot for employees, event coordinators, therapists, and even educators. Some were ready while others were not prepared.

"It doesn't matter what goes wrong. It's how you deal with it that's the issue." ~ Wendy

Wendy's nuggets:
~ Take inventory of what you are accomplishing (Don't overlook your wins)
~ Focus on what you can do to help someone else
~ Marketing works better with a community
~ There is no need to fear collaborating with others in your industry
~ Start with the goal of impacting one person

There comes a moment when you understand that your experiences were not just for you. Your story...your message is meant to be a guide for someone else. How do we transition from that feeling or that moment to put the experience in a book or a course. While that will be different for each individual journey but it starts with the heart to serve.

Think about what you want your story to do for someone else. How do you want it to be used? Where do you see it as being a benefit in someone's journey? This is your why and it will lead you to write things out that will impact many lives. So, are you ready to tell your story?
