Jump straight to the bottom for the journaling prompts for women entrepreneurs. Or read on through and find comradery with someone who’s gone through it too.
Starting a business can be really daunting. You are looking to people who have done this before, the experts, to tell you how to get started. You’re googling things like “how to attract clients,” or “how to start a biz.”
These things are definitely great places to start but they can also get in your way. Getting you so fixated on what the experts are doing that you start ignoring what your heart is telling you to do. It’s a slippery slope, my friend.
What if instead of trying to learn from people outside, you went within? I’ve got some journaling prompts for women entrepreneurs that will help you do just that.
Paying money for people to tell me what to do…
In this week’s YouTube video, I talk a lot about my own business journey. And how hard it was for me to figure out what I loved to do. Because I was so focused on what everyone else was telling me to do.
Disclaimer: If you are someone looking for checklists and someone telling you how to run your business…this blog is not for you.
I paid big money for coaches because I wanted someone to give me a step-by-step of how to do this. My problem was that the more I listened to them, the quieter my inner voice became.
The more I felt myself pushing and pushing for something, anything to happen. It made my business feel hard and like it wasn’t working.
Stopping the hustle to listen to myself
After 2.5 years of willing something to happen with my business, for the high ticket clients, or even a freaking discovery call, I stepped away. I stopped doing anything and decided that I’d let the universe show me what I should do.
And it did. Within a couple of months, I had 3 website clients. I have also consistently made money in my business every month since then.
I had to stop trying to push my agenda. To stop going after what I thought I wanted and step back and listen to what I actually needed.
My main priority was being home with my kids. And when I step back, I see how the universe has helped make that happen for me.
My business feels so much better now that I’ve been able to take my foot off my business’s neck. Now that I’ve been able to let it show me what it wants to be instead of me forcing what I think it should be.
