I remember thinking that this all sounds nice but there is no way this is even possible.
I was struggling to have consistent $1K months at the end of 2019.
I was DETERMINED to get to consistent $10K months by any means necessary.
It led to constantly working and tweaking my business around the clock.
I had no time or energy available for anyone who was not a client or a team member.
I got to a point where I was tired of following up behind team members. It was just easier and cheaper for me to do everything myself if they were just going to carelessly do the work.
I achieved consistent $10K months though, and I was able to leave my 9-5.
Achieving these milestones came at a great cost, though.
I had absolutely nothing left to give to my business, to others, and to myself.
I decided to do something radical. I deliberately decided to slow all the way down for 2021 to take time for myself. I kept the same revenue goal from 2020 but I had to figure out how to do it by working less.
I was willing to risk business growth in order to save myself.
Here are some of the ways my life has changed since taking that risk. I want you to imagine yourself doing the following:
My point is not only to toot my own horn but to also demonstrate to you that you can have the same thing.
I created a program with you in mind.
I’m taking all of the lessons learned over the past year and packaging in a 6-month comprehensive coaching experience.
