4 stages of autism awareness as a ‘neurotypical’ business owner
Being a home-based business owner and running a business during the biggest shift in the way we work in 109 years has been challenging for everyone. But realising you’re a person with autism and coming to terms with something that both feels like home, and also still feels so unknown is a whole other realm of re-working the way I work as a home-based business creator.
Embracing Change with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence
Change is a part of life, and those who are best able to adapt to it are the most successful. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a major force of change that is impacting many different industries and aspects of life. AI machines are able to learn and improve on their own, making them a useful tool for those who experience change frequently. AI can be used as online business assistance technology, making it a valuable asset for business leaders who need help saving time and energy. Here’s 3 ways I use it as a force for good change.
Is an easy business possible? The simply joyous business model says yes.
When I first came up with the concept of the simply joyous business model my first thought was “wow, that was easy”. The six months before this epiphany were spent trawling back through every last piece of strategy I knew, looking for god only knows what. This was a game changer I had been not so patiently waiting for.
No next step? Make business decisions with brand values and archetypes
When you put brand values and archetypes at the core of your business, you always have an anchor point to refer back to. A place that feels like home. A sanctuary you can return to and weather any storm from. Especially when you’re at ‘no next step?’. The answer in that unknown place is – next step, make business decisions with brand values and archetypes.
Recovering from Social Emotional Exhaustion
Uncertain times calls for greater equilibrium
Let me know if you resonate with anything in this one…
The biggest challenge I have personally risen to time and time again in the last two years is being able to notice when I feel as though I’m “going down“.
In these moments I feel as though my hyper-vigilance is amped up to the max. And on quite a few occasions I was actually experiencing dissociation.
Yep it had kept me safe all these years. But in the depth of all the uncertainty, I wanted to feel secure, confident and able to choose to maintain my sense of equilibrium. No matter what.
As I became grace under fire, each time starring down the flames in these moments that threatened to reduce me to ashes. I gradually created the pause to engage from 4th gear to neutral to observe.
I realised that I certainly had been relying on old patterns, habits and crutches that helped me survive from ‘before’.
And that I had been hiding this so strongly every day to ‘fit in’ and ‘act normal’ that it was exhausting me.
This was social emotional exhaustion at the deepest depths.
This exhaustion often came from me unconsciously emulating the approach of others.
Contributing to spaces in the hope of being liked.
Always being just a little bit not me.
Leading with my not self.
All in my wish to belong.
