How many times do you go to networking events, read articles or attend online workshops and think — wow. Wow that they are out there living their dream, achieving goals, and knocking it out of the park with a business concept that you wish you had thought of yourself. I’m always reading, especially reading about the success of others, because it helps me believe that my dream is in reach. And it is. Every day I feel like I’m living the dream, I didn’t know I could have (maybe not every day, who’s kidding who).

What’s stopping you?

• Is it your website — or lack thereof?
• Are you stuck in the learning phase?
• Are you struggling with how to package your product or service?
• Or market it?
• Or price it?
• Are there days when there is more to-do, than you have the time to do, but it needs to be done?
• Are you super social on social media, but it’s not translating into sales?
• Or are you not social at all, and still can’t figure it out?
It’s time to get your business off the sidelines. What is it going to take to get you there?

The first step is to find a group of incredibly supportive, yet honest, individuals to share this journey with. This can be family, a business networking group, or a support team.

A support team, you can’t do this alone. Everything worth doing, can’t be done alone. We all need support and guidance; letting us do what we do well and letting go of what we struggle with.

Yes, you need to let go. Let go of the tasks that you don’t excel at, let go of “less than ideal” clients that are holding you back. Let it all go and step into your success.

Remember that everything can change, and with the right spin, even a mis-step can be a learning opportunity, and an opportunity to engage with your prospects and clients. The decisions you make today don’t have to be set in stone. The package you design and price today, can change if it’s not resonating with your clients.

Balance is important, and its ok if it’s a moving target. What make you feel balanced today, doesn’t have to be what is balance tomorrow or next week.

Accept that you will be successful, and you’ll do whatever it takes to get there. Not for you, but for your clients that need you. They need you to be successful so that they can be. Always remember that.

And most of all — remember that every step you make forward, is a success, even if it’s a small one.

We believe in you! You can do this!
