Realistic Tools For Growing Your Business
IMPOSTER SYNDROME FLARE UP!
Warning: truthiness ahead.
And some insights to help you deal with your own imposter syndrome!
I really hadn’t been presented with the phrase Imposter Syndrome until I became a coach. When I started this business, I felt out of place. Like I didn’t know what I was doing or if I really belonged in this sphere. It’s not the first time I’ve been through this and it won’t be the last!
Last night I had a bit of an impostor syndrome flare up! By now, I have a lot of experience under my belt, resources...
It’s a fair question. Am I a complete moron? Or, is there a catch somewhere?
Am I trying to trick you into buying something from me?
TBH, the answer to both those questions is NO.
Why do I give away so much for free?
For years, I’ve struggled with how to value what I do.
Is what I offer valuable?
Ohhh, how I have grappled with “value” vs. “worth” vs. “pricing”.
I find most women entrepreneurs answer yes - for varied reasons.
How do we create value? How do we know what we’re worth? How do we PRICE ourselves?
My relationship with all of this: It’s complicated.
I tapped a resource in my orbit to help me wrap my brain around it.
Meet Susie Ippolito, a woman who helps brands understand how they CREATE VALUE!
As a brand strategist & general...
Ok, now you KNOW what you want...SO HOW DO YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN?
Here's the not-so-secret SECRET STRATEGY to get there!
Some people don’t ask themselves what they want and there are tons of reasons why we push it away.
But what happens once you have the list in your hand of what you want?
What do you do with it?
When you know what you want, that’s a powerful place to be in. You’re in a place of awareness that is so wonderful to get to, but now you have to go to the next step. Now it’s time to start normalizing that list. When you first look at...
Spinning. Fuzzy. Frazzled. Overwhelmed. Foggy.
"I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT."
Here are some strategies to help you get what you need: CLARITY!!!
When I get on the phone with women in Breakthrough Call, they are in a state where their brain feels really heavy. Scattered, frazzled and on the edge of burnout. So the first thing I usually ask them is “What do you want?” Many women can’t even imagine an answer to that question.
I relate to this feeling a lot. At the beginning of my journey I couldn’t imagine anything different than how...
There was an ingredient missing in my business & I couldn’t figure it out!
The mistake I made? I kept trying spaghetti, and it wasn’t spaghetti!
As entrepreneurs in the beginning, we are wearing all of the hats. This is what I call throwing spaghetti against the wall.
In my first business, I used the same ingredients over and over again. I didn’t get the results that I wanted.
When I left my first business, I knew I never wanted another woman to feel as lost as I did in that moment. I felt like there was a recipe to growing a...
Until 3 years ago I had no idea there was any other way to think about money -
Except to FEAR it…
I didn’t KNOW there was a way to attract it into my life.
Attracting money is a THING! Did you know that?
I asked Money Mindset Coach Kelsey Banfield to work with my clients & teach them how to bring more money into their businesses!
Kesley dug deep with my clients, but I’m sharing several gems with YOU!
I know you’re like me & want more money, wealth, abundance - whatever you want to call it.
You’re a woman who wants MORE. That’s why you’re reading this blog, right?
But here’s what happens to many women like you & me: when a woman wants MORE, our first concern is often, How will this affect my people?
My family. My partner. Employees. Clients?
A huge mental story begins: I can’t do X because Y will be upset, affected, disappointed, etc. etc. etc.!
It keeps us from even starting to get what we want!
We just circle & circle with our story - feeling exhaustion, resentment, & depletion.
We put off taking action, often with lots of...
“What do you WANT?” This question is terrifying for many women.
