Your DREAM must be BIGGER than YOU!

Hey girl hey!

I don’t know about you but I spent the majority of my life playing small ball. What I mean is, I lived a mediocre, low-key life. Until one day I realized that me playing small with my comfort zone was never going to help me realize my crazy dreams.

Yes, my dreams are crazy as hell. Sometimes my dreams scare the hell out of me that I have to go take a nap and process what the hell I am thinking. I even wake up in the middle of the night sweating because my dreams are so big that I don’t know where to start.

Guess what? When I finally got the nerve to jump in with the sharks and leave the gold fish behind my life began to take exponential leaps. I had a sense of peace and fulfillment. In my head I was screaming “Mama, I made it”!

But here is the thing with dreams. They do not come to fruition unless you work your ARSE off to bring them to fruition.

I cannot tell you how many times, I have had panic attacks because of my dreams. But every time I felt this discomfort and fear…I kept moving forward despite what I was feeling and as a result my expectations was exceeded exponentially.

Dreams cannot work alone. Without you taking active steps to bring your dream to life, it is just a vision.Ā 

Furthermore, when you push your dreams aside and play down the magnitude of them you are actually diminishing your light, purpose, and alignment in this world. We are all placed on this Earth to do some amazing things. But you cannot do anything amazing if you are constantly swimming with the gold fish and playing it safe.

Your dreams must SCARE the hell out of you. If your dreams aren’t scaring the hell out of you I encourage you to take a step back and ask yourself honestly, “Is this it?”, “Is this what I really want to do?”, “Is this the type of mark I really want to leave for the next generation?”

We live in a time where traditional understandings are evolving. Things that were not possible a decade ago are possible now. We now have many women of many ethnicities that are millionaires and billionaires; many of which do not have a degree. This is just proof that if you have a dream that is bigger than you, you will accomplish it if you work for it.

I will leave you with this :

No matter what you have been told. No matter where you come from. You have the capacity to live a life that you dream about. The only obstacle standing in your way is, YOU!

Jump in with the sharks. You’ve got this!

Tell me, what dream you have that is scaring the hell out of you?

 

5 KEY Reasons Why Your Business is BUSTED

 

Hey lady!

I wanted to share some secrets with you on why your business is busted. Now, when I say busted I am not talking about how your brand looks. I am talking about you being able to achieve you business goals without having a panic attack. Well, you still may have a couple, but I hope this post will help relive some stress and get you some momentum finally in your business.

The 5 key reasons why your business is BUSTED is not an exhaustive list. The list is only key issues that I have found with my consulting clients over the past five years. These key issues seem to be a recurring for women in business.

  1. You are married to your business. Your business may be busted because you refuse to be flexible. You are married to the idea of how a business should be “polished, marketed, and branded”, when what you want is not in alignment with what you offer. Entrepreneurship is not perfect, and you have to accept the fact that when you are not getting the results you want that you have to reassess and modify to meet the demands of the industry you are in and the target audience you are attracting. I have been through this process several times. I have went as far as deleting my entire email list of thousands of women to rebuild to align my business with the desired clientele I wanted.
  2. You are TOO cheap. Now I am a fan of a good bargain; however, if you are always investing in free events and products how will your vision grow. If you are not willing to spend your own money on your own business, then why would someone else invest?
  3. You are not consistent. Many businesses do not grow for the lack of consistency. When you are not consistent your followers know when your are BSing them to make a quick buck. Building a business requires you to consistently show up for your business. That means show up even when you don’t have customers or clients. That means doing the work you may not enjoy doing in your business until you can outsource tasks. Remember consistency is QUEEN. You have to stop running your business like a hobby.
  4. You are not laser-focused. Too many distractions can impact your confidence in building your business. Understand that we all can win. Your gifts and talents and what you offer the world is completely unique. No one can ever effectively duplicate what you offer. Learn how to tune out the noise. Set a schedule daily where you set uninterrupted time to build and structure your business.
  5. You are lacking substance. Many of these woke up one day and decided that we hate our boss. But in order to be the boss you have to know how to be the boss. Many businesses are failing because they lack the proper training and or resources. You cannot effective coach people if you have never been coached before. You need some type of training or mentor. You can even educate yourself through reading and applying what you have learned.

Again, these are the 5 key reasons why most women business owners’ businesses are busted. Do any of these resonate with you? If not, please share with us some more reasons why your business is “busted”
