I BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE CAN LIVE A LIFE THEY ARE MADLY IN LOVE WITH!
But what typically gets in the way of people having everything they truly desire for their life are limiting beliefs. Or as I like to call them - the inner soundtrack. You know - those thoughts like "When I get that degree, I'll find a job I love", "When I loose that weight I'll be happy", "I'll write that book next year when I'll have more time."
Been there - done that!
FOR 10 YEARS I BUILT BRANDS, ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS, AND DIGITAL MARKETING STRATEGIES FOR FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES, STARTUPS, AND AD AGENCIES, BEFORE I SET OUT TO BUILD MY OWN BUSINESS.
I knew I wanted to build a business long before I set out to create my own. What stopped me were the thoughts in my head. For me - it was the thought that I needed more experience and more knowledge before I set out to build my own business.
If I could give one message to women who truly desire to live a life they're MADLY in love with, it's that you only have one life (that we know of) don't spend it in a cubical if you don't want to.
By the age of 26 I was making over six figures, something I thought I wanted more than anything - but I wasn't happy. I wasn't doing what I desired - working for myself and helping others. It took me three years at my highly paying corporate job to muster up some courage to start my own business. But even with an MBA and almost a decade of experience, I still didn't think I had enough skills to start my own business. So I landed a job at a startup before I even started my own biz. Those inner thoughts stopped me from doing something I've been there.
But luckily not for long. After about a year, I turned into a zombie that was hopped up on coffee, living off of ice cream, cheese, and crackers, and pretty much hated life. That's what I'm like when I am not living a life I love. When I am not doing work that I'm passionate about or that lights me up in ways I couldn't imagine. So I quite without a plan. That's right - for the second time in a 3 year period I quit a job with no plan. And off I went on an journey to find discover how I truly wanted to contribute to the world. Less than a year later I started my own business helping others live a life they love and haven't looked back since.
My journey lead me to coaching, writing, and speaking and I know that the way in which I contribute to the world will continue to expand. I love love love what I do each and every day and wouldn't trade it in for the world.
When I got started, I was happier making $0 and doing what I love than I ever was making six figures doing something that I wasn't passionate about.
Now don't get me wrong, when I started my business I still wanted to make good money. In fact, from the beginning I believed I could make more money working for myself than I ever had working for someone else. And as far as I'm concerned, we manifest what we believe and what we focus on.
But today even my worst day as an entrepreneur is still better than my best day working for someone else.
