Happy July 1st. There are so many reasons to celebrate this month. First off, it’s my birthday month. I am finally getting a tattoo I have not only dreamed about having for years, but actually paid an artist to design it three years ago. I have just been waiting for the right time. I might post a picture of it next week, since I am getting it this Wednesday. EEEK!
Then, (and this is HUGE), as of today, this moment, I am back in business for myself! I no longer have to answer to anyone, or play by someone else’s rules. I can be as creative as I want in my marketing and surround myself with positive outcomes.
Now all of this great and awesome but………..it’s not going to come easy. There is a lot of work in my future. Yes, I no longer answer to anyone but myself, but at the same time there is no one to build my business but me. Which means I have to get my hustle game on. I can’t just walk into a building and have clients waiting for me. I can’t wait for that phone call from the receptionist letting me know a client has scheduled. I am the boss, the receptionist, and the therapist.
Whether my business flourishes or drowns is all in my hands now. This is true with anyone who branches out on their own. We all have the potential to succeed, but unfortunately we do not all have the drive.
I decided I am driven. I fantasize all the time about what I want in life and things that I would do different if given the chance. So I gave myself the chance.
Now I have to bring those dreams to life.
Do you fantasize about what your future should look like?
Do you have dreams you want to bring to life?
What’s stopping you? I have zero money in the bank. In fact when I checked my account this morning it said (once again) I am in the negative. This is one of the biggest reasons for me branching out on my own. I know my money potential and I also know as long as I am handing over 65% of what I bring in to someone else I will never get to where I should be. I know that’s money I have worked hard for and deserve to have in my bank account, not someone else’s.
Do you not feel driven enough to be a go getter and do what it would take to build your own empire? Does that dream of MORE not motivate you? You will never reach your goals by sitting on your couch blaming someone else for you not having what you want. In this day and age anything and everything is attainable. You just have to be willing to put in the time and effort to have it.
Have you made a list as I suggested in a previous post? Have you thought about what you would need to do to even attempt to move toward being your own boss? I dreamed about this blog for years. The only thing that truly stopped me from doing it was my fear of failure. Then I decided that even if no one but me read it, I was going to write it just to say I accomplished a goal.
It takes a first step. Everything has to start with a beginning. Your beginning has been your dreams, your visions of what you want. Now you have to take action.
The first step.
Your challenge this week is to take action. Even if it’s baby steps. Do at least one thing toward making your dream a reality. I want to see in the comments what steps were taken toward your goal of becoming your own boss.
Let’s build these empires together. I am about seeing everyone successful.
Until next Monday, I have a business to tend to and an empire to build.
Have a great week and Conquer On!
