If you’ve been part of my community for a while you may know that my first career was in Hollywood. By the age of 25 I was promoted to Television Literary Agent. On the outside I was incredibly successful, but on the inside, I was miserable.
Each week I got the Sunday night blues. I went to work with knots in my stomach both from the stress of the job and the stress of feeling like I was not doing what I was “supposed” to be doing. I lived for the weekends and would come back from vacation with a massive holiday hangover, just aching for more free time.
I hated the long hours. I hated having to be somewhere at a certain time every day. I hated doing work that felt like it really did not make any difference in the world. I also really disliked having a boss (actually multiple bosses). I dreamed of feeling free, being my own boss, and most of all, doing something that really mattered to me.
But I had no idea how. I was scared to take off my “golden handcuffs” and leave a career that I had worked so hard to build. The uncertainty of leaving my steady paycheck totally freaked me out. Plus, I had no clue how to start my own business.
Eventually I got to the point where I just couldn’t take another day doing something that I did not enjoy. So I quit. I left it all behind.
People thought I was crazy. I kind of wondered if I was crazy. Yet I could not ignore that gut feeling that something else was calling me.
You know the ending to this story, which is that today I have a business and life that I love. But you may not know all the steps that got me here – and believe me there were a lot!
For years I felt like I was throwing noodles against the wall to see what stuck. I felt completely overwhelmed with all the business building information out there. I spent thousands on website designers only to end up with a “pretty” website that didn’t get much traffic. I did not know how to take my message to the next level and, I definitely did not know how to make money online. Quite frankly, I was intimidated by marketing.
Can you relate to any of this?
Whether you are just starting a business of your own or you’ve been in business for a while, are you feeling the pain of NOT being successful and profitable?
Do you desire to have a heart-centered business, be it a product or service, that also affords you freedom?
If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, then you are going to love getting to know an incredible teacher and extraordinary entrepreneur, Marie Forleo.
Each year Marie teaches an online program called “B-School.” B-School is the world’s first online business school for modern entrepreneurs. This curriculum based training program teaches smart, effective and profitable online marketing strategies to business owners who want more sales and more impact from their online presence.
As part of the B-School launch, Marie is releasing three FREE very content rich videos (each is 25-30 min) that I HIGHLY encourage you to watch – and take lots of notes. I sent a link to the first one last week, here is your link to Video #2.
In this video Marie lasers in on the excuses that stop most entrepreneurs and teaches you what it takes to reach and make millions selling your products and services online.
I’m passionate about you viewing these videos and considering investing in YOURSELF by investing in B-school. I am so passionate about it that I am a partner for the program and will be offering you special support if you enroll through my partner link. (Exciting details to come about how you can be part of a free live mastermind with me in California, so stay tuned!).
For now, the most important thing is that you watch the video, check out the B-school site and feel into whether this program is a fit for you. Again here is the link.
To your success!!
