I know what it’s like to have big dreams…
But you can’t just stop at dreaming, you have to take action!
To be honest, I didn’t just decide to make the move from stressed, underpaid 9 to 5 overachiever, to helping online entrepreneurs create multiple income streams; I got here by trial and error.
The journey wasn’t smooth.
I didn’t always trust myself.
I didn’t always believe I could succeed.
And I didn’t always know how valuable my skills and experience were.
I spent late nights and early mornings writing fiction, building brands, and helping others reach their goals…
Even though I was getting results for others in their dream chasing, I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t getting results for myself, I wasn’t confident in my skills, and I wasn’t generating income.
So after years of working in Corporate, allowing companies and people to use my skills for little, and in some cases NO payment, I decided to do something different!
I went back to school to get a degree to justify and validate my being a viable resource to help people start their dream businesses, even though I was already doing it (what???).
I focused on completing an undergrad in Business Administration – Management, worked a 9 to 5, and kept working with people to build their dream businesses (and at the time I didn’t realize what I was doing was coaching and consulting).
So in addition to school and a full time job, I was still actively coaching budding entrepreneurs from the idea phase to a number of service based businesses ranging from copy and creative writing and talent management to hospitality.
But, I still didn’t feel justified to be doing what I was doing…
Can you guess what I did next?
If you said went back to school, you’d be right!
I followed up with an MBA in Operations Management (are you starting the see a pattern here?)
Spent a few more years working a 9 to 5 in the healthcare services industry.
But I still wasn’t “there” yet.
(Me just trying to make it through the workday>>>>)
I wasn’t living the abundant life I dreamed of deep in my core. And abundant to me was ALL INCLUSIVE.
I wanted so much more of everything:
- Freedom of time
- Financial freedom
- More Joy
- More Peace
- More Hope
And the pairing of my education and 9 to 5 just wasn’t getting me any of these things.
I wasn’t the bold business boss you know and love. I was miserable, overworked and still barely making it financially…
My story at that time was filled with fear, stress, lack and hustling. I was tired of the ugly cries on the 45 minute drives to and from work. I was tired of having to ask for permission to spend time away from my 9 to 5. I was tired of having a side business that I didn’t love. And most of all, I was tired of everyone telling me what to do, how to do it, and what success was. I was just existing. And this state of being was NOT working for me.
It was time to get my s#!t together and take control of my life AND my approach to business!
I made the decision to show up for my dream life
I worked on my mindset
I figured out what my life ABSOLUTELY had to look like
I set my quit date
And I started doing MY BUSINESS – MY WAY
THEN I GOT THE RESULTS I WANTED
- I create my dream life every day
- I have a business AND brand that I LOVE.
- I work with my perfect fit soulmate clients every day
- AND I am in control of my time, my finances and my happiness. (No more middle man!)
Like I said, this journey wasn’t easy, and it certainly didn’t happen overnight.
I did NOT find my perfect business model, income streams, clients and lifestyle by doing things just like everyone else. I had to get clear, trust my vision, and take action to get results.
Now it’s your turn!
It’s time to dust off that resume, assess your experience and passions, and create the income streams you need to have the life you dream of.
Don’t worry about not having a degree to start your business.
