In January 2015 I started my coaching business from scratch. At that point, I was distracting myself with any ‘busy-work’ tactic imaginable. I’d change my logo, build out a new banging website, and focus on the do-dads that frankly, no one gives a hoot about. I thought if I built it, they would come. They never did.
Something had to happen. My husband was tired of my excuses, lack of results, and more money being spent than being made. I was at a crossroads in my life. I realized how much I did not carry a growth mindset. I realized how much my low sense of self affected this business and every type of business I had ever had.
Although I was suffering from past trauma and largely unhappy in my life, I had this tiny little particle inside me that knew I was meant for more. One day, in a particularly dark moment, I decided to kick normal to the curb and start being beautifully abnormal ME. For the first time, I started listening to my intuition to embrace self-acceptance. I began to listen to myself – even when what I heard didn’t really didn’t seem to make any “normal” sense.
