I had quit my comfy corporate job making nearly $75,000. I had struggled for two years. And this? This is all I had to show for it?! $17,000?
This entrepreneurship-thing was not everything it was cracked up to be. I was working 14-16 hour days. Meeting people, networking, speaking for free, and yet…nothing was happening. Sure I had a few clients, but it wasn’t enough. I had been promised the dream. A luxury lifestyle and first-class business trips. I mean, that’s what I saw online. Why didn’t I have that?
The truth is that I was STUCK. I had tried every strategy (selling courses, creating memberships, becoming a speaker, publishing a book, running ads, etc) and nothing worked for me. That’s when I decided I needed help and I hired my first coach.
I didn’t have a strategy problem. I had a mindset problem.
While I was struggling over all of the work and overwhelmed by trying every strategy. I didn’t have the right mindset. My mind wasn’t focused, intentional, or working for me. I didn’t know how to believe in myself or hold my confidence in a sales conversation. None of the strategies were going to work until I got my mind right.
