Women are seizing the day and starting their own small businesses (5 employees or less) at empowering rates. I am excited to see that we are taking hold of our lives and stepping out on our dreams.
I was recently speaking with a woman who was ready to kick her corporate gig to the curb. She was fed up!!
She had worked herself up so much about having two, even three, different gifts she wanted to parlay into a business. She just knew there was something more that she was supposed to be doing … even though she liked what she did in her corporate gig.
As she continued in her almost defiant agitation about her current situation, I simply said, “If it’s that bad, quit tomorrow.”
So what’s the real issue?
Does this resonate with you on any level?
Are you looking at all you have to offer and looking at your job as getting in the way of you becoming an entrepreneur?
Or are you working yourself up to dissatisfaction in your job as fuel to take the leap because deep inside you’re afraid to—and complaining about work gives you a sense of relief because you’re tired and exhausted?
I’ve been there. For several years, I watched my friends and colleagues resign from their jobs and start living as entrepreneurs.
I longed to do the same.
My thought was, “I ‘ll be glad when I can leave and write my book and start speaking again.” I held this thought for several years.
So believe me when I say, “I understand wanting to take flight and live your dream.”
I still ask, “What’s stopping you?” I used my son as an excuse.
He needed medical coverage for acute asthma/allergies.
The Universe felt my cry/complaints, and I got fired in 2011.
Can I support you? Is that okay?
I’ve walked this one out for you already.
Hold up before you move so fast and work yourself up to being frustrated every day you go to work, finding yourself irritated by your team, your staff, your boss, and everything else. Stop making yourself miserable
Here are three simple tips to keep you moving:
- Shift your mindset about your corporate gig. It’s a great resource.
- Get laser focused on the one thing you want to do.
- Write out the first three steps you are willing to take NOW for that one thing.
I had a book in my creative spirit that I wanted to write.
Quite frankly, there was nothing about my corporate job that prevented me from developing an outline, identifying the chapters, or even making notes about what I wanted to share.
There were, however, obstacles within me that were causing me to sell myself short before I even walked out the door to become an entrepreneur.
If this resonates with you on any level, then join me for a powerful, insightful, and honest look at what gets in the way of us making the moves and money we desire and deserve.
