Let’s be real. Being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. It can feel downright hard, at times. Especially when you are in the early stages of building your biz. We are marketed to about quick fix courses, making 6 figures in 6 weeks etc etc. Which let’s face it that’s the top 1% of people and who knows how long it took them to get there - right!
Here’s the down and dirty truth about the things that I find really challenging about being an entrepreneur:
I can get overwhelmed in the enormity of my dreams it can feel unachievable by lil’ ole’ me.
I see people doing what I want to do, implementing the same ideas I have, creating a kick-ass biz, making a bucket load of money and I can feel defeated.
I’ve spent money on marketing that’s totally bombed and done a tonne of work that’s left me exhausted and disenchanted.
I feel like I should be a lot further ahead in my business than I am.
Money is flowing out quicker that it’s coming in.
Relate to any of these? I’m with you Sister.
Here’s what I remember when I am facing fear and doubt:
I can start with my most inspired idea and take just one small step.
Sure, there are many sisters doing incredible things. AND - “Comparison is the thief of joy.” I am on my own path and with a vision, faith, focus and trust - success is inevitable.
Investing money is part of growing a business. Whether I am investing in marketing, education or coaching it always comes back 10 fold - just not always in the ways (or timing) I expect.
We always overestimate what we can do in 1 year and underestimate what we can do in 5. Patience is a virtue - which I’m still learning ;)
Money loves clarity and flow. Embracing the manifestation of money whilst running a business is ongoing journey of learning and upleveling.
Sometimes the hard times are really hard. The truth is even then I can’t imagine doing anything else. Heck - I get to go and get my nails done in the middle of the day if I want to. I don’t have to ask permission to take an extended vacation - even better, I can take as many as I desire. Most of all. I get to create a business that’s inline with my purpose. I get to birth ideas from nothing - whether they fail or succeed. I’m on the greatest spiritual journey of my entire life. I fully get to own all my weaknesses and strengths. There is nowhere to hide! And there is no limit to the amount of money I can make.
You’ve got this sister!
