If I don’t launch my dream business, I might just explode. ’m tired of trying to listen to podcasts that are giving me tips & strategies to grow my business. I’m sick & tired of talking about all my business ideas. I’m sick & tired & sad of being in the position that I’m in right now. One stream of income (that pays every 30 days), I’m overweight at a whopping 208 lbs, I feel like I’m stuck- in business and in my personal life. (I’m currently at home trying to raise Irish twins, run a household, and continue to stop & go with the online courses that I paid for.) I’m fed up with listening to podcasts & watching youtube videos and not implementing what I’m learning. The resistance is strong in this one. It feels like resistance has taken over my brain and its giving me a list of chores that will never end. Trying to read ALL these books, consume ALL this content, clean the house, cook, take care of my kids, wipe poopie diapers , the list goes on and on. Meanwhile my heart grows despondent and I think to myself, it’s easier to do things that I’m familiar with rather than try to tackle uncharted waters. My throat feels like its closing or like resistance has a choke hold on me. I know what I must do. I don’t have the exact game plan, I don’t have all the answers, my business is far from perfect. But I know, I must start. Shut the fuck up and do it!
My vague game plan is to:
start on the podcast. Talk from the heart. The Lady Entrepreneur Podcast
Put a product or service out there, something that I would buy or attend. Something that I feel like I need at this very moment. Something that I can deliver. An in-person one day seminar that will help you get unstuck and take action on your dream business.
Invest in a tool that will help you laser focus on speaking to your audience via email. ConvertKit because Pat Flynn said so ;)
1- Don’t doubt yourself.
You have integrity, grit, and the perseverance to figure it out. You have entrepreneurial knowledge from books and from starting your own brick and mortar business, not all online entrepreneurs can say that.
2- just start.
3- What is The Lady Entrepreneur?
A place that creates products & services that improve the lives & businesses of female entrepreneurs.
A place where you can get support in business & life.
4- What’s your personal motivation? What inspired you to start?
I want to be the person I needed when I was a kid. A strong, elegant, leader that was also opinionated, kind, empathetic, ambitious, and smart. In other words, a successful business woman.
I want to show little girls, like me, the possibilities entrepreneurship can offer. I want to show them that it really is possible to live the life you love.
5- Why did you start The Lady Entrepreneur in the first place? What’s the story behind your business?
While starting my first business, Lady Bonilla Laundry, I was shocked to experience a mans perspective on the laundry industry. Emotionless, crass, unkind, ruthless, soul-less. I didn’t want to believe that that was the only way to have a successful business.
I was looking for support from like-mined women that were starting their own businesses too.
6- What do you believe in?
I believe that emotion is Power.
I believe that being “Bossy” is a leadership skill.
I believe in kindness with a side of sternness.
I believe its possible to live the life you envision.
I believe you become what you see.
End Of Episode Help:
There are 3 key steps to getting unstuck:
1- take action, you must have decided that you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. You have amassed a plethora of information, its time to move.
2- workout. Your body needs to move. Even if you crawl like a lizard across your living room, Check out a guy named Ido Portal.
3- Connect with like minded women entrepreneurs that are not only in the same position as you but are sic and tired of being sick and tired. That are done with the excuses, even though mine are good ones ;)
This class is for an intimate group of Lady Entrepreneurs that know what must be done in order to launch their businesses but are feeling the severe effects of resistance, in other words.. STUCK.
You took the classes, read the books, took some action but never really fully gave your business your full effort & commitment to consistent action. Why? You have too much on your plate? Bills, kids, a household, an aging family member? You don’t have time? What happens when you finally do have a little time? Who creeps in? Fear? Doubt? Insecurities? Fear of failure ? How about fear of success?
Look, I can describe what your fears and frustrations are because they are mine too. The only difference between us is that I’m taking action. The truth is the only way to walk past the fear is to take consistent action. I don’t have everything perfect but I know what my vision is, who I want to serve, and why ( thanks Marie Forleo ;)
