There are so many things we think we need to discover our dream business.
We think we need a healthy dose of confidence and trust right from the get-go.
We think we need years of professional experience and proof behind us.
We think we need to feel lit up from within 24/7 about our business idea, or we need to keep looking.
We think we need it to feel really logical, or at least a more linear path from where we’ve come from.
We think we need it to make sense for our loved ones to digest and understand.
We think we need to read all the books and take all the tests, hoping our answer gets spat out at us or falls from the sky somehow.
We think we need to Choose One Thing already – either X or Y or Z, but definitely not X and Y or a throughline between X, Y and Z.
But really: all of these things you think you need are what’s holding you back.
What you really need is to lead with a sliver of belief that you can do this.
What you really need is to take yourself out of self-imposed jail and find the And of your business instead of your Or.
What you really need to do is focus on the people who model your ideal future for you in the way they live their lives and run their businesses now.
What you really need to do is to start before you’re ready and get comfortable being uncomfortable.
What you really need to do is to stop (over)thinking and start doing. Even when it’s fuzzy. Even when it’s scary.
What you really need to do is to clear space by saying No to things that you are no longer serving you – so you can say Yes to having the time and energy to do this work.
What you really need to do is ask yourself “How?” instead of responding “No.”
What you really need to do is dream big and often. Dream of your ideal lifestyle, your ideal work day, your ideal client or customer. Notice what comes up. Notice what keeps coming up, over and over again. Notice what you immediately dismiss or shut down. Listen to the small voice in the back of your mind and what it’s trying to tell you.
What you really need is a supportive group of likeminded creative women who are walking the same path and have the same goals as you; a business coach with 10 years of experience who can have her eyes, ears and brain on your challenges, puzzle pieces and ideas; a proven way to go through this work so that you clarify what you want for yourself and have a plan to get it.
If you’re ready to stop thinking and want to really discover your dream business, I’d love for you to join us. No-obligation applications close tomorrow, and won’t be open again until the fall.
If you think you’re ready to discover, you really are. I hope you’ll let me help you get where you dream of going.
