Learning From Twitter’s Top 75 Badass Women – @AmyOscar

In February I was thrilled to learn that I had been named to Twitter’s Top 75 Badass Women.  Every Tuesday, I’m going to explore what marketing lessons can be learned from my fellow BAs and share them here.

I was intrigued when I visited Amy Oscar’s website.  Who is this person who talks to angels and finds lost keys?  So in a split second I decided that I was going to participate in one of her sessions.  I’m so very glad I did.  Amy listened to my story and asked very thoughtful questions.

The clutter of the not-so-important things was moved out of the way, and she facilitated an exploration of a deeper and more sensitive matters.  I was exhausted by the end of the session.  In fact, I was more sedentary than usual for the rest of the day as I mulled through my notes and thought through some things.

However, the following day, I woke up with more energy than usual.  I accomplished more than usual.  I felt better than usual.

Random Observation:  I’ve often talked about the amazing serendipity of Twitter (the incredible people that suddenly share the walk with you) and this is another delightful instance.

Lesson:  There is ongoing work that we all have.  I found myself in a mode where all I was doing was work.  That’s not unusual for a new business owner.  However, when I found myself tied in knots and losing sleep over a particular work issue – my conversation with Amy helped me to see that the real “upset” was not really about the “work” issue, but rather the work issue was echoing a personal belief area that needed some tending – it was a micro instance of a macro pattern.

Taking a step back and moving beyond the symptom to see what heart/soul ache might be is hard and momentarily unpleasant work.  A little like scrubbing a pot with a baked-on crust.
