Do you have a dream so big it scares and thrills you at the same time?

By Laura S. Shortridge


How to Live Your Passion in a House Full of Dream-Killers

You have a phenomenal idea, a dream seed. Your heart is calling you to a greater purpose. A more expanded YOU is seeking to emerge. Whether it’s building a business, competing in the Olympics, seeing your musical on Broadway, whatever you’re desiring to manifest… it’s so powerful that it scares and thrills you at the same time.

Finally, you can’t ignore or suppress it any longer so you share it with those you love the most. It doesn’t turn out like you expect. He laughs. She scoffs. They immediately try to talk you out of your “crazy” idea. What do you do? Give in to the dream-killers? Let your brainchild die? Or do you fan the fires of your passion and give it life?

Unipreneur Laura Shortridge shares strategies to pursue your aspirations AND keep strong family relationships. You don’t have to choose between your passion and your loved ones. By applying these strategies, you can have them both.

Action Steps

Section I: Prepare

Inward Germination

Before sharing your passion with others (especially those who are potential Dream-killers) you must prepare mentally. The Dream Seed must be nurtured and sheltered as it sprouts into a fragile little seedling. In this Section, I will share ways to protect the Dream internally as it strengthens, before sharing it outwardly.

Section II: Present

Outward Expression

In this section, you will be given tips to understand your Dream-killer, to get inside his head to see what makes him tick. Through this awareness, you can develop a strategy to present your Passion in a way that has the least risk of ridicule or rejection. Either way, the tone is set to move forward and grow your Dream!

Section III: Pursue

Onward Expansion

Your Dream has been given life. Your Dream-killer has had the opportunity to give support (or not) and you are ready to ramp up the hot pursuit of your Passion. If your loved one has decided not to join the journey, this is when you actually become a Unipreneur. And while that means building your Dream solo in the house, it does NOT mean doing it completely alone.
