RICHMOND, Va. -- Online strategist Sharvette Mitchell appeared on CBS 6 News at 4 to provide this week's Monday Motivation.

I am Sharvette Mitchell and I work with female entrepreneurs, and a few lucky men, to help them build their online platform and personal brand.

I do that with web design services and consulting programs.

Often times people want to live in their purpose, start, and grow a business or just feel more fulfilled.

I have discovered that it generally does not happen all at once.

Sometimes we have a partial view of our purpose or destiny. but not the full view.

This can trip people up because we want to know the end before we even start.

The challenge is taking the first few steps.

The next question then becomes, what direction should I go?

My answer: Follow the breadcrumbs.

Do you remember the story of Hansel and Gretel?

Hansel and Gretel had a mean step mom who sent them out into the woods hoping they would get lost and not come back home.

Hansel had a bright idea to leave bread crumbs along their pathway, so they could get back home.

I believe that there are breadcrumbs along the road of life to help us figure out the right direction.

Maybe it`s a soft nudge toward a business idea. Perhaps it is a hobby that you do easily and effortlessly while others struggle.

If you look for the breadcrumbs and follow them, you will know the next right step to take.

Follow the bread crumbs.
