I was so scared

I was so scared

Last July, I applied for a call with a business coach I found online. When my call came up I was excited yet scared. Would she like me? Would I qualify for her program?

I got on the phone with a lovely coach who took the lead by asking questions. By the end she asked if I wanted to join their program. I said yes, but how much was it?? She proceeded to tell me the biggest number I had ever heard!

I was shocked. Mortified even. I had never spent that kind of money on myself or my business since undergrad, but that was over 20 years ago!

I told her I had to discuss it with my husband, I needed some time to process. She gave me 24 hours to make a decision.

The next day I signed the dotted line.

I was scared 💩-less!!

Scared that I was going to waste the money instead of earn it back.

Scared that I was going to be a failure in the program.

Scared that I wasn’t going to live up to the other successful members.

But I did it anyway.

And guess what, I made mistakes, I hid at times, I got burnt out, I let people down.

AND I increased my revenue 20% month over month, rebranded my entire business, created a new business model, put together a framework for branding that was 100% my own, put together an entire new program and delivered it 3x, served way more people, applied for a book writing scholarship with a well known publisher and won a spot, 4x my social media platform and more.

ALL IN ONE YEAR.

Was the HUGE amount I spent worth it? Heck yes!

How I kicked myself for not investing sooner. But divine timing 😂

I know you’re scared.

You may be scared of failure

… scared of spending a huge sum of money
… scared of making a mistake
… scared of stepping up to be known
… scared of sharing your expertise or creativity
… scared of taking responsibility as a leader
… scared that no one will understand your vision
… scared to contribute and participate
