Being it’s my passion to help women monetize their knowledge, which I call brand influence, today I want to jump into the signs to look for that it’s time for you to start your passion business.
And by passion business I mean relying on the intersect of your passions, skills, and interest… many times I refer to that as your superpower as mentioned in Episode 18.
Your superpower is the result of your layers and layers of pivots, life cycles, and experiences that have led you to where you are right now.
We as human beings are social creatures – we need to be around others to thrive in life. In-person connections can ease stress, anxiety, and depression, boost self-worth, provide comfort and joy, prevent loneliness, and even add years to your life.
So when these connections are made it makes a huge impact on our mental health and overall happiness.
But as technology has advanced we tend to rely on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram to fill that connection need.
I talk to a lot of business builders about what holds them back. Why do they drag their feet when doing things that they know will grow their business?
Their reply 9 times out of 10 always has to do with some sort of fear…. But when I really think about fear – isn’t fear present in our minds because we are always chasing perfection?
The perfect headshot, the perfect caption, the perfect grid, the perfect sales page, the perfect email… and producing the perfect product.
If we could reach PERFECTION then we’d have no fear of what others thought. Fear of other people’s opinions.
So how do we combat this? How do we overcome showing up to the world as imperfect and being totally OK with someone having an opinion of us?
This is definitely a voyage I’ve personally been on for years and years and inside this episode, I’m going to share what I’ve done to combat this paralyzation of my business when it comes to “striving for perfection.”
If I’ve heard it once I’ve heard it 100x times…. “If I could just motivate my team I’d reach (my goal).”
This is usually heard on repeat in the direct sales industry when you’re trying to reach some sort of goal where you need more sales for the month in order to reach a volume or title goal. If you’ve ever tried to manage any sort of team before I know you’ve said it to.
In this episode, I’m setting fear aside and using my voice to eliminate shame from the workplace and beyond. Allow me to share why the decision to change should come from a conscious effort to learn… not by attacking another’s character.
Today I want to talk about a subject that is completely swept under the rug when it comes to job or career pivots. And that is the emotional effect of pivoting your career path.
When I reflect on my own journey of how I’ve used and reacted to social media I always come back to the idea that many see success on social media as having high engagement ratings.
* We seek validation that what we are doing is making an impact.
* That the time we are spending on writing captions and blog posts and podcasts is worth it.
* That someone out there is paying attention to our message.
Press play on this episode where I share with you what I’m doing instead of seeking validation through likes, comments, and follower count. It may just change the way you look and feel about content for good.
Boy, is that easier said than done. Especially when hard looks like missed sales goals, flopped ads, email unsubscribes, client return requests and alllll the things that get us down and out.
And no… all the cute Insta quotes in the world can’t pick us back up at times.
When we want things to be easy or at minimum handed a clear path to success… and we expect our actions to bring us closer to our goals… we are inevitably disappointed when things don’t go as planned.
Multitasking seems like a great way to get a lot done at once. I mean us entrepreneurs are always looking to save time and get more things done so if we can knock different tasks right after one another or at once – isn’t that a good way to increase productivity?
While multitasking might seem like you are accomplishing many things at once, research has shown that our brains are not nearly as good at handling multiple tasks as we like to think we are.
Ever wonder what the world’s most successful entrepreneurs looked like when they first started?
Ding, Ding, Ding…
Like beginners. They had no clue what they were doing.
Seriously. No one has it all figured out, especially in the early days.
But if you ever want to hit goals and reach the success you dream of – you must train yourself to start BEFORE you’re ready.
