Let me tell you mine...
In 2016, I decided to leave my job.
I decided I had had enough, and I was done pretending like it was a good fit. I worked up the courage to quit, and resolved to venture out on my own to start my own business.
In my courageous bravado, I told myself I could do it on my own. After all, I had read a ton of self-help books, listened to countless Ted Talks, and made it through a rigorous, transformative grad school experience a couple years prior.
I even invested in Marie Forleo's B-School (which I highly recommend), thinking that it would give me all the answers and guidance I needed.
While B-School gave me incredibly solid ground to stand on, as far as learning the ins and outs of running an online business, I soon discovered that getting educated was only a piece of the puzzle.
Throughout the year following my resignation, I floundered. I got distracted by part-time jobs and money worries, and my business saw almost no substantial growth. More importantly, I wasn't living the life I had set out to live when I quit my job, and I was losing sight of my dream.
I realized that trying to "DIY" my life wasn't working. Here's why:
We don't get anywhere in life alone. We need support. The best athletes, the best singers, the best writers... All have coaches who are there to help them succeed.
When I finally decided to let go of my ego and admit that I needed personalized support, my business took off. I started to live the life that I knew was possible from the very beginning. I remembered my dream, and became focused and intentional in my business. The personalized support helped me identify mindset blocks that were holding me back, and helped me identify a plan to make my dreams a reality.
Look, I get it.
Putting yourself out there with a creative, heart-centered business is scary, vulnerable stuff! Maybe you're afraid nobody will want to buy what you're selling, maybe you're afraid of the haters, or maybe you're afraid you'll fail.
Not to mention, you have no idea where to start, right? Whether you're just starting out, or trying to find your footing after feeling lost in your business, clarity can be hard to come by in the brain of a creative person.
First, we'll clarify your vision.
"Clarity equals power."
- Marie Forleo
When you know why you're doing what you're doing, who you're serving, and what your larger purpose is, decision-making becomes approximately 1000x easier.
Then, we'll work through mindset blocks.
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
- Albert Einstein
Our brains are really good at trying to keep us safely in our comfort zones. When we have the audacity to break the mold and start a creative business, our brains scream, "Danger!" We'll identify the ways your beliefs are holding you back, and gently and intentionally update your inner monologue.
You'll make a plan and follow through.
"The most effective way to do it, is to do it."
- Amelia Earhart
A dream can't come to life without action. We'll work through fear so that you can take action and watch your business evolve and grow. I'll be there every step of the way as you venture into new territory.
Time to Evolve
We'll work together for 3 months, because change takes time! Our weekly calls will give you a chance to reflect and grow at a realistic pace.
The entire process - from start to finish - is about you and your business. Let the other stuff fall away, and focus in.
Clarity is power; the creative process will support you in figuring out what's important to you so that you can let go of the things weighing you down.
This isn't a mastermind or a group program. We'll only be talking about your vision, your goals, and your beliefs.
I love art and the creative process - it's no secret. I'll incorporate art-making into our sessions to enhance your connection to your truth, so you can really feel into your goals and intentions.
Wherever you're at in your entrepreneurial journey is okay. Us creative business owners inflict enough judgment on ourselves - you won't get any additional from me!
