Hey, It's Linda!
and it's Saturday and this is a long one - but it's good.
SO! April was the month that I decided to say fuck it and go for my dreams and I want to give you an honest review.
This time last year I was over my story of not knowing what I was supposed to do in this world but KNOWING I was made for so much more. I was working a little bit of a side hustle and really feeling unaligned with my mission.
I knew I always wanted to be a full-time entrepreneur - I just really didn't know what i wanted to do.
And because I got real real with myself, because I got honest with myself, because I looked at bullshit story right in the face - thats when an opportunity came across for me to figure my shit out.
The opportunity was to work 1:1 with a coach who has now made a half a million dollars in her business in just one year. At the time when I was working with her she wasn't making this money, she was actually fairly new - but I knew that working with her and her energy that this was a no brainer.
Here's what I want you to know. I was scared shitless to invest thousands of dollars In myself.
I had never spent that much money on myself prior to this investment (besides a car ;) )... but I was finally saying to myself that I'm worth the amount of money I invest in myself and that the amount of money I invest will be paid back 10X over.
I had big dreams, I had big goals, I had a really scary but exciting vision for my future and this was the only way I was going To make it happen
So - I wanted this to be an honest review and here it is:
When I first started working with my coach I actually didn't know what I was capable of. I said that I would out of my 9-5 six months after I invested, but I was out of it in three months. I said that I'd be making 4K in 6 months, but I actually made it in two.
The reason I'm writing you today on a Saturday is to not only let you know what I've been able to accomplish but also let you know that I actually didn't end up where I wanted to be this time last year. And that's okay.
I know we see all the time in our communities that people are starting their businesses and 10 days later they're making 10k all of a sudden - and its just bullshit.
After almost a year of being in business - I've realized there has been so muchhhhh trial and error. Yes I was able to make 4K in 2 months, yes I was able to leave my 9-5, yes I was able to help other women leave their 9-5s, yes I've been able to hit 10K months.... BUT honestly - I still don't feel like I've accomplish enough in a year. And it's because I feel into the comparison trap. I keep comparing myself to the coach that I worked with - the one I mentioned in the beginning of this newsletter.
Like ohhhhh she was able to make a half a million in year one so why haven't I?!
We all have our personal goals that are unique to just us.
And it doesn't matter what "so and so" is making if we don't feel connected to the reason why we're making that money we think we want.
I took out the welcome packet I completed when I first started with my coach and my main goal was actually that I wanted to make 6-figure by age 30! (and I'm 27 and and its so happening this year). And that was a REAL goal before I started comparing myself to other people.
So what I want you to know too - is that YES you can set these really cool goals for yourself and yes they will change because you'll start surrounding yourself with high-vibe go getter entrepreneurs - but you should never loose sight of the personal/unique goals you are working towards.
And its funny because I should be grateful for everything that I've accomplished, and I am - I totally am - but I thought I would be a little but further.
And that's okayyyyy because I know without a doubt I can accomplish anything I put my mind to as long as its a TRUE desire.
I know that I've helped so many women get out of their shitty 9-5's and actually - more than half of the women I've worked with 1:1 are completely out of their 9-5s and working businesses that they love.
That's what i should be focusing on. The impact I've been able to make in these women's lives. The reason I started, the reason it was an easy yes for me to sign up with my coach because I had those women in mind so desperately wanted to leave their 9-5s.
The thing is this business was never about me - its about them. And when we start focusing our energy on that - that's when everything changes.
But I also want to let you know what wouldn't have been able to happen if I said NO to my business coach.
I wouldn't have been able to buy a house
I would have been stuck in commuter traffic M-F back and fourth
I wouldn't have my own office in my house thats exclusivy mine
I wouldn't have met 3 amazing biz-besties and launched a program at 95K in sales
I wouldn't have been able to travel to Miami, San Diego, New York, the rockies
I wouldn't have been able to live in an RV this summer
I wouldn't have been able to buy that RV
I wouldn't have been able to create a schedule that allows me to work 90 hours a month
So Im really fucking happy I went for it is all I'm saying. And if you're reading this and you've made it to this point in my email and you're thinking about ways you can get out of your 9-5 and find work that lights you up - then wtf is stopping you already from making that shit happen?
Imagine where you could be a year from now
Imagine how many lives you would have touched. Imagine it being Saturday and you didn't give a shit because it just seemed like any other day of the week. Imagine experiencing true freedom and fighting for goals that only light you up.
This is the life you can create for yourself if you want it bad enough.
So anyways - happy Saturday - I hope you're dreaming big. I hope are taking steps towards the future you envision for yourself.
And as always if you want to the faster road with proven step by step strategies that work - I'm here for you girl - and I'm not going anywhere.
But I have to say - it's time to stop dragging your feet and it's time to start taking action. So if you want to take action - just book a damn call with me already
