Man, your thoughts can really put you through the ringer!
I chose to ignore them and focus on what I could control instead. I already had the business acumen from working on a financial advisory team in Canada (named in the top 15% of advisory teams 7 years running!), and I’d helped scale revenue from the low 6 figures up to more than a million dollars in revenue. Plus, I had my own experience becoming a self-made millionaire in my 20’s. But it wasn’t the money I was after—it was the impact. I knew I could affect more change working directly with people. I soon realized that generating income and charging my worth as a coach WERE ways to make an impact.
Still, my first few months of working for myself were more of a struggle than a success story.
I was essentially winging it, using what I picked up from online courses, webinars and other coach’s opt-ins and trying to apply it to my own business.
I felt pulled in every direction, in information overload, trying to make sense of it all.
