Doing What You’re Called to Do in 2017

Some of you, my loyal followers and readers might be asking the question lately about why am I talking so much about mindset? What happened to all of the organizing posts and what is this writing entrepreneur gig?

So I thought I would take some time to clarify the new message and mission of this blog for 2017 and beyond.

On Organizing

Let’s start with what happened to Smart Happy Organized and the organizing posts I was doing. I love home organizing and professional organizing and I loved writing about them. I just found that after three years my voice was changing, the people I wanted to impact and serve was changing, and I didn’t feel like I had much more to say about organizing.

In fact I was taking more of a minimalist stance and what I really wanted to start saying was get rid of your stuff and quit buying more! But of course that’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

So I decided to evolve and see where that takes me.

On Writing Entrepreneurs

Within the professional organizing world I met some amazing people who are not only professional organizers but writers and authors as well. I found myself talking more to them about the many different aspects of writing, blogging, publishing etc.

I became really excited about writing more myself and seeing where that could take me. Not just writing organizing posts but writing posts about changing your life, your mindset, your income, and of course the technical stuff for bloggers and entrepreneurs. I found I really want to impact and help those of us who write and want to earn an income using our writing in one way or another.

True story here, my mother was a writer. I used to make fun of her for saying she was a writer. Mostly because she had one very successful period in her life of being a writer and getting published. Then for years she only wrote in spurts, never tried to get paid, and never made any more money. Yet no matter what, she said she was a writer when people asked her what she did. In her heart she would always be a writer. My mother passed away in 2014 and I often wonder what she would think if she knew her daughter had become a writer too. I also wonder what her life may have been like if she had found inspiration and information in some form and from someone. So if I can be the inspiration, the coach, the mentor or whatever you want to call if for a writer out there who is struggling I believe that’s my purpose and my message. I can see it now.

You will hear and see me sharing my message daily or more if you follow me. That’s the scoop on the writing entrepreneur gig.

On Mindset

Lastly, you may be wondering where all of this mindset stuff is coming from and why am I grabbing on to it so tightly. At the end of 2016, a livestream video caught my eye by an author, speaker, and badass success coach named Kat Loterzo. After I watched the livestream I felt excited, energized, and a renewed sense of…something! I didn’t know what at that point but I wanted to explore it! So I watched more of her videos, began listening to her audio messages while I was walking the dog etc. I began journaling, doing mindset work, daily affirmations, and manifesting! I can’t really describe the change that was taking place in me but I was excited about something. About writing, getting back in shape, about calling whatever good I wanted into my life. Once I started on this course and saw that this manifestation was really working I knew I had to begin to share it with my tribe as well. Since this isn’t what I am known for I thought I would just start writing about it, introduce it and talk about how it’s really changed my path in my personal life, fitness, family, business, and writing. I should give credit and say how Kat  has really changed my path!

So I will be bringing you some of the things I learn and hopefully excite you and get you started on this kick ass journey too! If it’s not for you I totally get it. I’ll be talking about plenty of other topics that have to do with writing, blogging, small biz & entrepreneurship. Sometimes I may even throw in a mom story because I am a mom of an eight year old and crazy funny things happen all of the time.

  1. Looking forward to hearing more on all of these topics, Autumn. I love #ShowUpDaily. So much of life is doing this very thing, no matter you are facing. Sometimes it is rough, and something you receive an unexpected blessing. But you have to play to win!

  2. So happy for you autumn that you have more clarity and vision and are evolving both personally and professionally. Thank you sharing your heart in the post and encouraging us as well! Can’t wait to see where you are going on your new journey adnwish you all the best!

  3. I am so excited about your mindset training! I can’t wait to get the recordings. Last year towards the end of the year I decided to try my hand at affirmations. It felt silly at first, but after a few days, I could feel a change in my outlook and great things began happening for me personally and my business. I love that you are meandering down this path and taking us with you!

  4. I’m looking forward to getting motivated with you to write and inspire others.

    When I found my passion for helping other small business owners in 2006, I realized that this was where I wanted to be on my terms, working for myself, helping be of service to other small businesses.

    Happy new year!

  5. This is very timely for me. My “one word” for this year is clarity, which represents many different things. One of those is becoming clearer in my own mind about my purpose, and a second one is articulating that more clearly to others. I look forward to learning and growing alongside of you this year!

      1. Great question, to which I don’t yet have an answer. 🙂 I better work on it though, because this Saturday the discussion topic for our GHVA meeting is “What are your goals for 2017? What are you giving up in order to achieve them?”

  6. I appreciate all the updates and clarifying a bit this new direction you’re taking. I’ve been following you for a whike and was getting confused on this new direction of your brand/business, so this is a helpful start. Thanks.

  7. I’m so excited for the path that you’re one…and can clearly “hear” the excitement and energy you’re feeling from what you’ve shared. I can’t wait to hear more and see where this takes you. Isn’t it fascinating how one small thing (as in the video you watched) has nudged you on a different trajectory? It’s beautiful that you were open to seeing the possibilities and brave that you’re allowing yourself to follow a different direction.

  8. I think your mom is looking down and is proud that you are following a path that gave her motivation to be a writer. I’m excited for you and will watch your growth in this new direction. Good luck. Love you

  9. Thinking about writing more? Looks like you’re in the ‘right’ place being a Co-Leader of the Authorship and Publishing SIG! Happy to take the journey with you. Wishing you much luck with your transition–your mom would be very proud of the direction you’re moving in!

  10. I definitely agree that you should revise and refocus your goals. I’ve done that also, especially with my blog. I try to make sure I’m going in the direction I want to go in and made some new plans for 2017 to make my blog better. I love your blog and look forward to more great inspiring ideas.
    Aimee
