You’ve done it! You left your J O B and are out and have decided to follow your dreams, build your business and conquer the world!
It’s exhilarating, terrifying, absolutely amazing and hard! No one had ever told you this one simple truth about doing it alone before:
It’s hard to follow your dreams!
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it isn’t worth it, that you shouldn’t do it or that you’re better off working for the man. But that saying of “if you follow your passion you’ll never work a day in your life” is bullshit!
No matter what passion or dream you choose to follow there will be hard days! And that’s just part of the game.
Remember this: we’re lucky!
The fact that we’re even having this discussion is proof that we are part of the lucky ones. We have the privilege to live in a society where following our dreams is an actual possibility, where we can choose to go out and live life on our terms, to create an income from work that we love and enjoy.
Building your business is one of the most fulfilling things you can do in your life, but it is also one of the hardest!
And here’s why:
Every single day there are a million new challenges and decisions that YOU have to make. Not your boss, not a community or you brother; YOU! You are the only one that can decide which direction to take your business in, what to spend time on, and what to ignore. And the sheer amount of choices you need to make can feel overwhelming, I know.
But guess what? That’s the price of FREEDOM! That’s the price of following your dreams!
Running your business will give you the freedom to create the life you want but it also means that the responsibility falls on you, and you alone. Having said that you need to remember: You’re not alone! There are a million other women across the world creating their lives on their terms. Don’t be shy reach out to them!
If I’ve learned anything throughout this roller coaster of starting and growing my own business is that we all need someone in our corner. Finding a community of like-minded women that are going trough the same challenges you are is one of the most important things that you can do for your business and your sanity!
It’s time to find your power group and connect to other women who are doing what you are doing!
