My First Post!
Welcome to Hands on the Wheel, the official blog of Tallawah Collective! This blog has been over a year in the making, but the first post only took a few minutes to write… So why did it take so long for me to actually create and then post this? Well, first of all, you don't know me like that, so take it easy with all the questions... (I'm kidding.) I can come up with a myriad of answers to that question, but at the end of the day, they’d all be nothing more than excuses.
Who makes New Year’s resolutions in February, though?
I know, I know -- I’m a strong month and a half late with the whole resolving to be great thing. We’re all busy, and each of us can find a million excuses (sometimes legitimate reasons) to put off one thing or another, but the fact remains that we inevitably find a way to accommodate the things we care about the most, even though it might not be the “right time” to do so.
The fact of the matter is, it’s always the right time to make decisions that positively impact your well-being and that of those around you, and there’s no reason to wait for an arbitrary date or for an unrealistic set of circumstances to fall into place before taking action.
For those of you who know me personally (which I’m sure is most of you at this point… it’s cool, I’m a realist), the vision behind Tallawah Collective is something that has been on my heart to do for years now, in one form or another. When Tallawah Collective finally came to fruition a little over a year ago, I wanted to create a blog to serve as an extension of the Tallawah platform. A place where I could share my entrepreneurial journey and experiences, as well as inspiring stories and perspectives from others, in an effort to encourage people to pursue their own passions, turn their dreams in to actions, and keep the hustle alive even when things look uncertain or too daunting to overcome.
I’m excited about the blog and everything the New Year has to offer. I’m also excited that I finally decided to brush aside all of my self-imposed hurdles and take action in the form of my first blog post on this random Tuesday in February.
So, what is it that you’ve been putting off?
What’s holding you back from getting started today?
Here’s to humble beginnings and small victories. Who knows what incredible things the future holds for each of us…
