Problems with Being an Idea Guru

Wednesday, September 25, 2013


It's no secret that I am a self-proclaimed idea guru.  I have mentioned it quite a few times on this site and even on twitter.  I have helped random people come up with ideas on what to do for their blog and businesses, even developing business.  Sometimes these ideas are warranted and other times not, yet still well received.  I even offer advice to my blog friends on creating a more professional look on their blog when they ask or if I feel they are really in the dark and just need a light switch turned on!  Even if it means connecting two of my community members together so that they can benefit from each other.
I love to create ideas.  I enjoy mind-mapping the ideas, thinking about the process to making it become a reality, setting up a launch campaign, setting up the back of the house, so that the front can run smoothly and seamlessly.  There is only one problem - well two.

1) I have so many ideas for people and it bothers me that I cannot come up with ideas for myself.
The first step to acceptance is admitting, right?  I know that my "thing" is ideas, but there is a part in me that wishes I could just have one thing that I could pour my heart and soul into; evident by my three attempts with different shops on etsy.  I'd love to have a cute jewelry shop, coffee cozy shop, greeting card and stationery line or a graphic design company.

Constantly having ideas leads me to my second problem...

2) I get bored easily.
I am always jumping around with different pursuits and it is hard for me to do one thing for a long time.  I am a sprinter not a cross-country runner when it comes to business.  Becoming bored with what I'm doing makes me feel like there is another business I could create for myself.  In reality - there is just another business I can think up for someone else to help them out, because really my business is thinking up businesses!!!

This is the constant through everything - IDEAS and creating businesses out of them. I think I'll always wish to have some type of creative and fun shop like so many of my peers and mentors that I could just pour into, but reality (again) is that I get to dibble dabble in all types of fun projects with future clients of mine and help create other people's dreams and ideas into a business and most importantly a reality.

While there are some downfalls to being a self-proclaimed idea guru (in my eyes) - I do consider this a God-given talent that I am really thankful for.  Right now I am just trying to find that magic recipe to using it in the most efficient way possible.

PS:  If you want to pursue a passion or start up a business but not sure on what to do, I can help!!  Send me an email at 91dash@gmail.com.  Idea Generation and Foundation packages start at $30.


Do you have a qualm with your talents?   What are your thoughts on my issues with being an idea generator?  I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments.

xoxo, Aukele

  1. I can totally relate to this. I usually don't have issues coming up with ideas for myself, but I get so many of them that finding time to think on or execute most of them can get tricky. I've found that keeping notebooks handy is a great help because you can always go back to something and develop it later.

  2. I am the exact same way! I have terrible follow-through because I get bored and jump on to the next idea!

  3. I can totally relate to everything that you just said, Aukele! I have such problems sticking with just one project because I always have a slew of them going on- and then I end up finishing none of them!

  4. I can completely relate to this, Kele!! My brain just will not slow down and I always tackle too many things at once. Working on that for sure. I love that you are an "idea guru" too! :)
