I guess I could be considered a “founding member” of Jeffrey Davis’ Tracking Wonder Quest. There’s no such title, but if there was, it’s one that would be shared with the great group of Questers who signed up for the first one in 2014.
I learned of the Quest through a serendipitous social media connection with Jeffrey. I didn’t quite realize it then, but I was at a turning point. I did know that at two years into having launched my own business, I was a feeling a bit stuck and uncertain where to go next.
Jeffrey’s invitation was intriguing: to join the Quest — at no cost — and find guidance and the company of others in making 2015 my best year ever. Who wouldn’t want that?
The best way I can describe the Quest is as a creative, thoughtful, supportive and encouraging way to shift your perspective about what’s possible. It’s a place to learn and try out new ideas, give and receive feedback, and make personal and professional strides.
Taking a Leap
I didn’t know what to expect when I joined Quest2015, so it was a bit of a leap. I got far more than I could have imagined. An expanded network of accepting, supportive and motivating colleagues. A thoughtful and fun leader who generously shared his wisdom and encouragement. Well designed opportunities to help me reflect on where I wanted to go,, and and on what I needed to do to get there.
My confidence took a great leap forward. My ability to tell my business story in an engaging way was strengthened. My business didn’t quadruple overnight (in fact, you shouldn’t trust someone who promises you that!). Instead, over time it has seen steady growth. The Quest has been a key part of that growth.
New Members are Welcome
I believe you’ll find that there’s something in the Quest for you, whether you’re a talented professional, entrepreneur, or creative; whether you’re self-employed or working for someone else; whether you see yourself as a leader or a follower.
All these roles are important. You’re important. Why not invest some of your time this December in a valuable project: designing your best year ever for 2019?
