Hey, hey, hey, family, and welcome to the 14th episode of the leaders lab Podcast. I am your host, Dr. Charity C. Campbell, and it is my pleasure and my honor, that you have decided to tune in yet once again, to this podcast. I am so excited because we’re starting a new series. Today’s topic is ✨Multipassionate Entrepreneur – Can You Really Do It All?✨
We just completed a seven week series on transforming negative self-talk to positive affirmations and becoming your best self. This week, on today, we’re beginning a new series that’s primarily focused on being a multi passionate entrepreneur, and how to not lose balance in the process. I want to reiterate that you can do it all you can be a successful, multi passionate entrepreneur and manage multiple brands and businesses.
But you must have organization and management skills. And, so, over the next couple of weeks in this series, this is something that we are going to delve in much deeper, so that we can help multipassionate entrepreneurs all over the world, find their rhythm and their balance, and to build big without losing balance or becoming overwhelmed and burned out.
Now if you are brand new to the term, multipassionate entrepreneur, don’t worry, I was, too, a few years ago. It was around 2016 when I had just finished graduating from my doctoral program and I knew that I wanted to go into academia. But I just didn’t want that to be my only focus.
I had built a brand over the past five to seven years and it was very successful. I mean, it was a consistent brand; people could identify with me and me with my brand no matter where I was. No lie. I would go to random places and someone would come up to me and be like, “Hey, you’re lady Judah, aren’t you?” And I’d be like, “Hi! How do you know me?” And the responses would be from YouTube or from Facebook.
And I had to go through this, transformation process after I graduated, which actually was not my own doing. Somebody reported my name on Facebook the day of my graduation speech, because – I guess – somebody was searching for me on Facebook and they couldn’t find me. So they found “Lady Judah” instead with my photo and reported the name as not my legal name.
My account was shut down for about 2 days during one of the biggest moments in my life and it was this big old snafu. Anyway, it prompted me to have to change my brand, which I needed to do anyway because I was no longer that version of myself.
I was no longer Lady Judah.
I was now Dr. Charity.
And so I needed to figure out how I could take all of the things that I loved all of my passions, and I try to compress them into one brand. I really did. DrCharityTV started out as a compression business.
It tied in my passion for leadership and inspiration; my passion for my health and wellness journey; and my passion for traveling and discovering the global God. And it was a flop because it was so confusing.
There was no clarity. I had you know, for those people who follow me because They love me and their friends and family, you know, that was different. They might like, whatever post they felt like liking at the time. But my target audience didn’t know who to identify with.
They didn’t know if they should identify with with, you know, the woman who is speaking inspirationally. And now or talking to leaders, or do they? Do they like? Do they like the one who’s losing weight and exercising and posting, you know, picks up her food? Or do they like the one who just, you know, went on a backpacking tour through Europe, and she’s posting, you know, these photos, like, they didn’t know which one was me.
And even though they’re all me, it just, it wasn’t a clear message of who I wanted my target audience to associate with to identify with. And so what I had to do was separate them. And we’re going to talk about how separating your ideas, all of your different passions, and prioritizing them, organizing them, putting them in an organizational management type of situation, that will help you get your things together.
So in 2016, I knew that there had to be something out there that could define me, who I was who I wanted to become the different brands that I had. And so I was doing some deep, deep research on brother Google. And I came across this multi passionate entrepreneur, this this woman by the name of Marie Forleo, who is just amazing. And she actually coined the term, multi passionate entrepreneur in the early 2000s.
As a matter of fact, in 2016, I believe it was in 2007, when I first heard of the term, but I didn’t really think much of it, in 2016, was when I saw the term again with Marie Forleo. And I easily identified, hey, I remember that term. And she talked about embracing your passions and how to position them properly for the story that you want to tell. And, and being able to tell that story in a way that it resonates with your audience. And so I thought about that. And it took me some time.
I mean, I brainstormed I wrote things down. But it took me some time before I actually put any action behind those ideas because I didn’t have clarity myself. And so, one thing that I started doing was looking at looking at other historical figures who were multinational entrepreneurs, Marie Forleo, actually talks about Leonardo da Vinci how he was a multi passionate entrepreneur, Maya Angelou, we know says the girl rest in peace. She was a multi passionate entrepreneur. There’s so many other historical figures too. But the one that I want to really focus on is bezel L. Now this is a multi passionate entrepreneur who you may have never heard of. But he is more historical than Leonardo da Vinci.
He goes all the way back to the book of Exodus in the Bible. And we’re going to talk about who bezel is, so I’m just going to read you this passage of Scripture, so you can see where his name appears. there too. By the way, there are two bezels in the Bible, okay, there are two bezels that are mentioned in the Bible, but the one that we are going to focus on is the one that’s in Exodus, okay. And so Exodus chapter 35, verse 30, through 35, I’m reading from the New International Version, it says, Then Moses said to the Israelites, see, the Lord has chosen Bezalel, son of Ori, the son of her of the tribe of Judah, and he has filled him with the Spirit of God with wisdom, with understanding with knowledge and with all kinds of skills to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver, and bronze, and to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of artistic craft.
And he has given both him and a holy AB son of a hesa Mac of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others, he has filled them with the skill to do all kinds of work as engravers designers, embroidery is in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers all of them skilled workers and designers. Alright, so let’s break down brother Bezelel. Okay, because as you can see, this is this is a lot. He had a lot of skills. They’re very, very talented man. And so the first thing was that he had wisdom, ability and expertise in all kinds of crafts. So the Bible, in the NLT version calls him a master craftsman. Okay, a master craftsman. And so the second thing was that he was an expert in working with gold, silver and bronze.
And when I looked up, what do you call As someone who works with gold and other metals, it’s a goldsmith. And so not only was he a master craftsman, but he was a goldsmith. The third thing is that he was skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones. So he was also a jeweler. Like that’s, that’s what we call it a modern modern day jeweler right there.
The fourth thing about bezel his fourth passion, his fourth talented area, is that he was skilled in carving wood. Hello, carpentry brother bezaleel was a carpenter as well. Not only that, but look at look, if you go back to the to verse 34, it says that he was he was given the ability to teach others. So he was also a teacher, a trainer, a coach. So that was a fifth skill that he had as well.
And then if you take a look at another, you take a look at another it says that he was skilled in designing embroidery and weaving, well, that is a designer and embroider. So not only Okay, let’s let’s just clarify this, okay. Not only did brother bezaleel have gifts and talents and a passion for being a teacher, trainer and coach, he also was a carpenter, he was a designer and embroider he was a jeweler, he was a goldsmith and an overall master craftsman. Now, I don’t know about you, I don’t have seven, I don’t have seven different things, different passions that I’m trying to work on,
I just have about three or four, you know, three for me is my leadership, my inspiration brand, which is leadership, focusing on leadership and multi passionate entrepreneurial ism, and communication, like how you communicate with yourself and with others cross cultural communication, digital communication, then also I have my travel brand, which is Doctora, the Explorer, and then I also have my health and wellness brand.
But the fourth thing is me and academia, you know, as a presenter, as a speaker, as a teacher trainer, as a student coach, a leadership coach. So I have those areas that I focused on. And when I started when I started asking God, how does this apply to me because I can, I can identify with bezel even though it’s in my he was more skilled and talented.
Because he was designed and everything, he was building everything, including the Ark of the Covenant. And so I, I was in my I was in my study time, of course, like I said, back in August 2020, when I first came across, Brother bezaleel. Okay, those first time I actually had heard about him or read about him in the Bible. And as I was doing this devotional on how to be a more effective creative Kingdom entrepreneur, and I was reading about him, I just, I felt like I needed to go deeper, I needed to do a deeper study.
And what I realized is that being skilled having wisdom, also, I believe, it said that he had the expertise in all kinds of crafts, being able to do that also takes an understanding of who you are, and what the task at hand or what the project at hand calls for. Sometimes when God gives you an idea, he’ll give you an idea, and you’re think you’re supposed to act on it immediately, like right away.
But maybe he hasn’t given you the strategy of how to begin building it. Since he’s the ultimate creator, he already knows that if there is an idea, there needs to be a strategy in order to carry it out. So sometimes it may take a while.
It may take a while, even a few years, like in my case, it took me about four years to get the strategies for my different brands, before God will give you a strategy because he may be giving you the idea simply so you can write it down for a future time. Jeremiah 2911 says that God knows the plans that He has for you. And if you think about it, plans usually have timelines and specific deadlines.
Just because God may give you an idea right now, or just because you may have an idea right now of what it is that you really, really want to do. If you do not have a strategy. If you do not have a strategy, maybe it is not for you to implement at this moment. What you do is you write it down, write down every single thing that comes to your mind.
Do not trust your memory, okay? Do not trust your memory, write it down as soon as it happens or record it, you know, pick up your your mobile device and do a voice memo or write it down in your notepad or whatever it is that you however you record your notes. Don’t trust your memory, write it down.
And when you begin to do that, come back and revisit the idea or you might find that as you progress along your journey and you start you know, you continue to Think about your passions and you work on your passions, you may find that there are bits and pieces, little clues, because destiny leaves clues, little bits and pieces of maybe this should be added to my brand. Or maybe this should be added to my business. And maybe this should be added to my, my project or my book or to my album, or maybe to my marketing strategy.
Maybe this should be added to my home daycare on my home school, whatever, you know, whatever your idea is. So as you as you submit to His timing, because he will show you the strategy in his timing, whether it comes directly to you or through a coach or through you know, a mentor or through classes through you know, searching on YouTube, you will get the strategy.
And he’ll give you the wisdom and the understanding and the knowledge necessary to not only build your dream, but how to organize, manage, and launch that idea as well. It does get overwhelming at times, but you just have to learn to breathe, write everything down, I cannot stress that enough. write everything down that comes to your mind.
Do not trust your memory, step back and take a look at the task and say, Okay, what is the absolute most necessary task that needs to come first, and then prioritize your creativity and start with number one. So in order to master being a multi passionate entrepreneur, you have to manage being a multi passionate entrepreneur. And that means managing all of your passions.
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to talk about some some management and organization strategies to help you not only build your idea, but how do you brainstorm it, how do you organize, how do you manage it? And how do you launch it so that you can do this with all of your multiple passions and ideas and go from concept to creation to consistent execution without losing balance?
