I live by the belief that anything is possible once you understand your habits, behaviour patterns and belief systems and master them. I want you to come to understand the kind of thinking and patterns of behaviour that got you here, what makes you unique and how to build the best business you can so that you have sustainability, powerful relationships and as a result, raving fans!
It was really tough when I first started my accidental online business and had to learn how be vulnerable and open so that my clients could relate to me and feel understood by me. I felt like I had to teach everyone and didn't understand the power of "niche-ing" down or growing an email list that was interactive and engaging.
I wanted to keep talking about things the way that I knew how to talk about them, but I was missing the part about saying what I needed to say in a way that my clients needed to hear. And I needed to be vulnerable and share things that I tried to keep secret for most of my life.
I wanted clients who knew the power of investing in themselves, but I was scared to invest in myself. I needed to show them that I got their pain, that I knew what they needed and that I could give it to them and the only way that was going to happen is if I started to talk about my life in a way that formed deep bonds with my clients. I had to open up. I had to (brace yourself)...share my life.
I started to realize that the things about me that make me unique and special needed to be addressed. I started to realize that building solid relationships had been my lifeline, and that storytelling has been one of my most powerful and successful tools. I had to show that marketing and sales don't have to be scary - I could teach how to sell through storytelling, which became my Storytelling-to-Sales formula.
It wasn't easy...
… But I quickly realized:
No matter what I tried, I was saying the right things but I couldn't get across that I knew what it was like and that I HAD THE ANSWERS.
Every time I got ahead, even by a little, the crushing feeling of uncertainty about the future and my business was palpable. Some weeks I couldn't shake it. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat and I couldn't focus because I was worried about money and if I could hack this entrepreneur thing. If I was going to have to close my doors.
I spent a lot of time crying. Going back and forth in the timeline of my life, trying to understand what was happening. What was the lesson I was supposed to learn? Was I meant for this?
I ran out of people to talk to about this. I needed a coach but couldn't afford one. Or so I thought. I didn't realize that in order to grow, I had to spend money because where I was then wasn't going to be enough to get me to where I needed to go. I was holding onto every penny and staying stuck. It didn't make sense.
For a while, my personal development stopped because I felt like I was too busy. I was spinning my wheels and it was hard. I stopped working out because at times I felt like the walls were closing in on me.
My schedule was full, I was running my show, but I wasn't feeling fulfilled because I couldn't connect the way I wanted to. I just didn't know how.
And then when I decided that in order to become who I wanted to become, I had to push harder to learn the things I needed to learn.
I started to realize that I was attracting to me the same kinds of people as me: scared to spend money, and staying stuck in what wasn't working.
I ran myself ragged trying to learn everything on my own. There's a lot of free information out there - but what is legit? How much money am I willing to spend to "hopefully" learn what I need to learn?
In reality, I started to see that what I needed was a complete overhaul of the way I was running my business because it wasn't working.
Which meant I had to start with me. What made me different and special? What stories would resonate and give me the biggest impact? What kinds of people would jive with me? I had to reverse engineer my superpower.
I had to start to understand what my unique gifts were: what skills was I given so that I could succeed in this world?
How could I use all of those things that made me stand out in my business?
Once I realized all of this...
So I went old-school and did what I had always done in the past. I helped others by teaching what I learned…
I had the distinct honor of helping thousands of women all over the world through my online talk show so they could move forward with intention and clarity.
