The following is an email I sent out a few days ago to those on my email list. The responses I got from them has led me to a different, and even more exciting decision. Read the email, and then I’ll tell you what’s coming next…
Hi there, it’s Zara!
How are you? Really…I wanna know because the past year has been a doozy for me — many changes in life and new norms to adjust to, and I’m embracing it all — choosing to change with them all — because it’s what I’m built to do, and so are you.
I want to share something with you that has caused me to reorient my whole focus.
I posed this question recently on social media: If I were to tell you that I was giving a TED Talk what subject would you automatically assume it would be on? The answers I got let me know that my public branding needed some tweaking because while some gave the answer that best suits me, there was an overwhelming majority that gave an answer that is fitting, but incomplete.
Since I co-founded the relationship platform, The Grown Zone, and co-authored a book on relationships a few years ago that has been well-received and has maintained 5 Stars on Amazon it’s not surprising that most of the responses were, “relationships”. What that taught me is that, publicly, I’ve gotten too far away from my over 20 year niche – LIVING authentically through temperament understanding and individuality-aligned purpose. THAT IS WHAT I DO.
So over the next few weeks I’m inviting you on a journey with me. I’ll be sharing a lot on my personal social media pages (Facebook, Instagram LinkedIn and Twitter) to teach on the subject of individuality and I invite you to come along because you won’t consistently enjoy life (or love) until you learn to fully, wholly and completely love (understand and completely accept) YOU based on your natural individual temperamental makeup and finally reconcile the nature vs. nurture elements of your own design.
I’ve long regarded myself as an Individuality Advocate and long before being known for relationships and publishing Loving in the Grown Zone: A No-Nonsense Guide to Making Healthy Decisions in the Quest for Loving, Romantic Relationships of Honor, Esteem and Respect, I authored 2 other publications that were individuality-focused: Living in Harmony: The Art of Understanding Thoughts and Behaviors and Living By Design: How to Freely be Who You Are.
Everybody who has worked with me 1-on-1, in workshops, or has been in the audience while I’m speaking knows that no matter the issue we’re addressing — or where we’re going — we’re starting with your natural innate temperament, which I’ve come to know for sure as the only sustainable foundation to begin any personal growth journey.
Join me on each platform. You may even want to turn on notifications for my posts so you don’t miss them and so you can share them when they resonate with you.
I feel an urge to bring balance to LIVING and LOVING.
So put on your big girl/boy drawers and buckle up! It’s about to be a beautiful ride.
Individuality Advocate and Relationship Educator
Now here’s what you need to know. Those who have known LIVING all along have BEEN asking for it to be made public again because the response after learning it is always the same,” I wish I’d known this sooner”. So here is what’s happened. Those I’ve worked with and know LIVING responded with this, “Please re-release them publicly so that what you then share is a reinforcement of what we’ve already learned rather than pieces on social media.”
With advanced technology and the different ways that we now consume information and the ways my life has shifted, this is the easiest way to have the biggest impact on what matters to me: that people learn to value their individuality and love themselves enough to learn how to value the differences in others enough to love them too. It’s time to make it available again to the general public.
I’m going to combine the two audiobooks (which I still strongly recommend once it’s on AUDIBLE because the programs were created as audio infotainment, and listen: I AM entertaining! 😁 ) and they will also be transcribed into book form.
I’m SO EXCITED for this to happen because people get really excited about Loving in the Grown Zone but you can’t skip steps. This will enable you to lay the necessary foundation for LIVING and LOVING, well. Now I’m off to make this happen. Stay tuned.
