John P. Weiss this is the transition from consumer to producer. Not that you aren’t a producer! Rather, it’s setting up a new ratio.
I’ve done the same this last month as part of my reinvention/transition from health & fitness coaching into The Queer Coach.
I created a new website and turned off all optins on the old one. I was able to deactivate a number of services and apps, including leaving two membership groups, saving close to $400/month. I’ve been ruthlessly unsubscribing as well.
It’s about HOW much mental space we have to be our most creative, or to be most available to the people we serve. Having that space offers the potential for more happiness, and more joy if we are spending time in our passion. Do more of these and we attract people who want to work with us.
Perhaps you have simply reached a point, as I have, where it’s not that you feel better/smarter/wiser, rather, you KNOW what you KNOW, and now you want to spend all of your time invested in the sharing of that knowledge with others.
