writer and soul gardener
Today on the blog is my friend Sharon Musgrove of Sharon Musgrove Untethered. Sharon is a teacher, counselor, writer, and self-proclaimed sociologist. The opportunities opened to her, over the years, have led her on a fascinating journey observing human behavior.
She has a diverse background in business, fitness, and health industries. This background led her to a unique position writing curriculum and teaching for two private, Christ-based, residential recovery programs. Both recovery programs served women primarily from the homeless community.
Grab your cup of coffee or tea, find a comfortable seat, and learn more about Sharon.
I love stories. What’s your story?
I think the heart of my story is that I truly want to make God proud of me. I am someone who pours into whatever I take on. And I’ve taken on an interesting array of things over the years. I see the collection of activities…business office, health, nutrition, teaching, counseling, and writing as ingredients in a stew that just keep better with time. I guess that means I am getting better with time too!
Tell me about your business?
My blog is about helping people figure out how to let go of the parts of their lives that keep them from living freely. I think we all dream of living untethered to the expectations of the world. It’s time to make dreams come true.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
My voice is probably my biggest asset. There was a time when I was told that what I thought and said did not matter. Once I realized how wrong that was, I knew that I had to find a way to speak.
Who is your ideal client?
That person who says, “I don’t know,” when asked that hard question. I want to encourage them to risk looking at themselves.
As an entrepreneur, we face a lot of challenges, what has been your biggest challenge?
Second-guessing myself is my biggest challenge. I will write a post, feel great about it, and then lie in bed wondering if I said the wrong thing.
What has been your biggest accomplishment in your business?
Figuring out how to fix the mechanics of the website after having messed them up in round one.
What’s one thing you’ve learned about yourself as an entrepreneur?
I have tenacity. I’m going to do that thing if I die trying! But I doubt I’ll die.
What advice would you give someone who just started or wants to become an entrepreneur?
If you answer the question, “Will you be sorry if you don’t try?” with a “yes,” you just have to try!
Share one fun fact about yourself?
I love cooking for myself special recipes for lunch. You know, the funky, healthy foods that “regular” people wouldn’t dream of eating!
What’s your favorite quote?
“Everyone I know has a big but. Come on Simone, let’s talk about your big but.” -Pee Wee Herman, Pee Wee Herman’s Big Adventure
