Each day brings with it new challenges and new perspectives. Being in business for yourself is a journey that I did not expect it to be. This may sound odd but my entrepreneurial journey has been the most spiritual journey that I have ever been on. Being in business for yourself requires you to dig deep and face into your most limiting fears and beliefs. It requires you to tap into your creative storehouse and reinvent yourself each new day.
The discipline that is required is like no other and I can guarantee that you will grow as a person as a result of being in business for yourself. There will be times when you feel like your efforts aren’t producing any results. You will question yourself from time to time and wonder if this is what you really should be doing but there will be this pull inside of you that will not allow you to throw in the towel.
In all honesty I have had moments like this where for a moment it seemed easier to just go back to the way life used to be. Going to work every day, looking forward to Friday and especially looking forward to payday Friday. Then I would feel the tug within that says no keep going you are doing exactly what you are meant to be doing.
I would hear my inner voice tell me not to be deceived by how thing appear to look before me. I don’t know, maybe you find yourself here right now. If you do I want to encourage you to keep pressing forward despite how things may be looking to you.
You know that you are meant for so much more and it’s definitely worth going all in for yourself and for your purpose. I have learned that nothing happens when you allow yourself to be in a state of inaction because your feeling like you don’t know what to do next. What if you simply just asked yourself the question…
What should I do next? Then listened for the answer and actually took action based upon what you hear.
A lot of the best decisions that you will make in business will be those where you chose to listen to your own voice and then acted immediately upon what you heard. Business is very intuitive so it’s important for you to start working that intuition muscle right now. The wonderful things about your intuition is that it will never steer you wrong. Just this morning I was feeling a little blah and not really motivated to do my morning workout.
You know that feeling where you know what you need to do but for whatever reason your body just isn’t cooperating. So I decided to ask myself what I needed and what I wanted to do instead of freaking out about not feeling motivated. When I asked myself I heard myself say that I did want to work out but that first I needed coffee and to read my book for 30 minutes. I obeyed what I heard and after 30 minutes I felt so good, motivated and ready to crush my morning workout. The old me would have simply gave in as soon as I felt like I didn’t want to work out and would have probably went to sleep (an old coping mechanism of mine for when I feel blah, emotional or overwhelmed) but I chose to listen IN instead. This is exactly what you get to do in business as well.
It’s easy to get distracted by those who are at a level that you desire to be at and think to yourself that you’ll never get there. It’s vital that you keep your eyes on your own lane and only look to those further ahead of you as inspiration. It’s also great to remind yourself to be grateful for the small beginnings of business. This reminds me of a scripture in the Bible – Zechariah 4:10 “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin….”
You see you have begun the work and this make God happy to see that you have started. I believe the God will not give us anything for which we aren’t’ prepared to handle so understanding this it’s easy to see that as you keep pressing forward, learning, growing and finding your way, you will be blessed with more for then you will be ready. There are always going to be new levels for you to reach for.
I see this in 6 and 7 figure earning entrepreneurs where even though they are at a place that I will one day be they are still looking for their next level. So understand that just because you get to your next level it doesn’t mean that it’s over. I mean if you think about it will you ever really reach your destination? I don’t think so because I know that you are an over achiever who is driven and ambitious and because of this you will aren’t ever going to get to a certain level and say, “okay I’m done.”
So keep pressing on, make mistakes, take risks and know that you are on the right path. Choose to enjoy the journey and learn all that you can for there will be someone who will need your guidance one day to help them navigate their journey. And always know that action is good because even if you don’t end up where you desired you will have step further along in your journey and will have even more clarity around what you need to do next.
Being an entrepreneur is not some mystical thing that only some get to experience. It’s available for everyone but it will require more of you then you ever thought you had to give. If you can just remember that you do have all the answers inside of you and to tune in daily to help you pull the answers out.
Lots of Love,

My desire is to show you HOW to create the best year of your life instead of simply duplicating the year of 2017. So in my Purpose Planning Workshop I will be working with you for two hours sharing with you the process of success that I created for myself, showing you how to create the goals that you REALLY desire, showing you how to stand in a place of ALREADY DONE, showing you how to increase your finances, showing you how to get clear and SPECIFIC on your vision, how to bring your vision into your physical life daily and how to infuse your goals with purpose and intent.
Here’s what we are going to cover:
•How to create your very own daily mindset practice that automatically places you into alignment with your vision and goals every single day.
•We are going to identify YOUR limiting beliefs around actually creating what you say you want, identifying where they came from and learning how to overcome them with my BELIEF CREATION process.
•We are going to look at the importance of SPECIFICITY and how to ensure your goals are aligned what you REALLY desire.
•We are going to look at how you tap into the answers that are already within you and actually HEAR exactly what it is that you need to be doing DAILY to bring your goals to fruition.
•How to break down your goals into doable stages so that you see progress throughout until you get to the final realization of what you desire.
•How to create SPACE for that which you say you desire.
•How to create a STRONG foundation of belief to support the goals you want to manifest while you are in the process.
•There will be biblical principles discussed throughout this workshop to pull it all together from a spiritual perspective.
