Hey there, groovers. My name is Lynda, and I’m a tiny chubster who is on a mission to inspire as many people as I can to build their knowledge, and share it. If you like the idea of adding some fun and creativity to your self-education as you cultivate your zone of genius, then I’m your girl (well, I’m your short, chubby, middle-aged chick).
What is Incited Media?
I’ve always been ambitious, but I didn’t have a passion to follow. I started researching successful business people and discovered many of them used self-education to master their craft. As they became better at what they do, the more passion they felt for their work.
I started this website (Lynda Cahill |Incited Media) to share my research, along with tips, tools, and content to help you find what you were born to do and become a rock star at it – just like I am trying to do.
The Incited Media Journal Process
Who says we can’t have fun while we build our knowledge? I developed the Incited Media Journal Process as a way of using my notebook or journal (or even scraps of paper) to capture all the things that inspire me, so I can build a life and business that excites me.
You see, my journals and notebooks are my vision board, business plan, and time capsule all rolled into one! I call them my “incited media” journals because they make me feel inspired and excited (incited). A notebook or journal is the number one tool I use in my work as a content creator, for my self-education, and also for capturing all of life’s adventures. Find out more about my incited media journal process here.
Don’t have a passion to follow? Cultivate a zone of genius, instead.
We aren’t all born with a passion to follow. I know I wasn’t. That’s because passion is a feeling, not a job title. When you work hard at building your knowledge and skills, you cultivate a zone of genius, and that is when you start to feel passion for what you are doing.
So, if you don’t know where to start, a bit of self-awareness, self-education, and self-inspiration can steer you in the right direction. Sign up here so you don’t miss out on the research, resources, and content I’ll be sharing. You’ll receive my free “Learning to be me” questionnaire. Print it out and brainstorm and scribble all over it, or use the questions as journal prompts.
Look for themes in your answers to find things that inspire and excite you – this is your starting point to help you discover your zone of genius. (I’ve included 59 niche ideas to help you choose the direction you want to take)
My daughter and foster son even used this questionnaire to help guide their studies! So, whatever stage of life you are at, it’s never too early or too late to follow your bliss.
I stand proudly at well under five feet tall, with an arse the size of a planet. I take every opportunity I can to reach high (metaphorically speaking, of course, because I can’t even reach the friggin’ potato chips stash on the top shelf of my pantry). My bliss is hanging with my hubby and our daughter at our home in the country, or camping with them at the beach. Thankfully, they are both tall enough to reach the potato chips stash.
I’m a journalist and content creator, and I spend most of my time researching creative self-education strategies and business design. Wherever I am, you’ll find me sipping a glass of cold water (or red wine), with a journal or notebook and a stack of pens. I won’t be wearing shoes. I’ll probably be doodling and brainstorming while listening to a business podcast or reading a book. It’s what I love to do so I do it A LOT.
Let’s do this!
