A friend asked what I’m doing now.
“Designing coloring patterns for adults,” I replied.
“No more coaching?” she asked.
“Designing and coaching.”
This led to a chance conversation about how coloring patterns can be used. Not just for coloring but on clothing, mugs, brochures, other marketing items.
Then we got onto cake decorations.
Collared By A Cake Baker.
This friend bakes cakes for special occasions. She wondered if my coloring patterns could be used to decorate cakes. Told her it sounded possible.
“Great!” she said. “I’ll order ten.”
Coloring patterns? No problem!
Decorating cakes? I know bugger all about cakes, apart from eating them. I know less than bugger all about decorating them.
I do, however, like a challenge.
“No problem! What would you like?”
“Hexagons,” she said. “I’m happy to leave it to you – you’re the expert.”
Gave her the “thumbs up” sign and a big smile, thinking –
What the Hell’s a Hexagon?
Trotted off home determined to “google” hexagons. I’m 59, it’s 40+ years since I left school, and I couldn’t remember what a hexagon was.
It’s a 6-sided object.
Good job I checked. I thought hexagons had 8 sides.
Whatever else happened, this would be a learning curve. Flexibility, patience and understanding would be needed.
A few doodles later, I had some ideas. The design above was one of them.
I asked questions along the way. Gap in the centre for your own ideas? No, just hexagons. 3-d effect? No, just hexagons.
It took a while but they all got done.
My friend said they were fab. Yay!!
We had lunch today. She wants another design, and gave me some instructions:
Don’t put the lines close together.
Gap in the middle.
I knew, before we started last time, we should’ve had the –
Free 30-Minute Initial Chat.
Before I introduced the “Initial Chat” in coaching, I sometimes had a client who didn’t know what he or she wanted to change, just that something needed to change.
Change = Hexagons.
The 30-minute free Initial Chat is for you (the client) to get clear on what you want – why you want coaching – to discover a little more about coaching and for me (the coach) to find out how I can help.
What you want = Space between lines.
What you want = More room.
What you want = Add color.
What you want = Symmetry.
What you want = Gap in the middle.
What you want = Add another decoration.
