Whenever you are starting something new, there are so many things you don’t know. You don’t even know what you don’t know yet.
One of the best ways of figuring out how to do something is to find someone or several people who are doing all or part of what you want to do and pay attention to what they are doing.
Basically, you are finding mentors who can help you learn along the way. You can find mentors in books, through the internet, on websites, blogs, or asking others.
Do they have a program, ezine, class, seminar, or book? Can you volunteer to work for them (think apprentice)?
Sometimes starting can be the hardest part. You don’t have to know how to do everything before you start. Just gather some information and take a small step. And then another.
One way I am sharing knowledge is through interviewing interesting and amazing people I’ve come across for my series of Inspired Artists and Creative Entrepreneurs.
Barbara Winter, author of Making A Living Without A Job, shares her delightful outlook on creating a joyfully jobless life. And Rena Klingenberg shares her refreshing ideas about being an artist, entrepreneur and single Mom and keeping the balance in her life.
So, remember, you aren’t alone.
Who or what has helped you to do take that next step?
