When I started my business, working in the cracks of time before, between, and after my pay-the-bills, 9-5 job (a huge shout out and thank you to my mentor and boss at that time), my goal was to make $5k cash a month consistently doing the work I loved.
I’ve always believed you can make money doing the work that sets your heart on fire, and do it your way.
I still have my list from that time, $5k months and a $60k year seemed like a huge stretch, but possible.
There’s a lot else on that manifesting list (I highly recommend writing one of these btw, it’s WILD how everything and more can become real in your business and life) including…
“Helping other businesses get started and make money”, which blows my mind because this list was written before I niched into mindset and business coaching
My clients getting results I can’t even imagine, soaring so high, and changing their entire lives for the better
Marry my person
Move into my dream apartment
Being able to scale my business in a way I love
New running sneakers (I covered all the bases, lol, and at the time *every* spare cent was invested back into my business, so new running sneakers seemed like the ultimate luxury item).
A bike ride around Versailles
Fast forward six-ish years, and I’m in full-on celebration and deep gratitude mode.
On the personal front, last fall I married my person (who I went bike riding with around Versailles three years ago), the business makes consistent $30k-$40k cash months, and Kim Argetsinger Coaching LLC has grown from $60k a year goals to multi-six-figures (we closed last year around $365k).
I’m continuing to scale my business MY way, living in my dream apartment in my dream neighborhood in the city, working with clients who blow my mind with their integrity, work, transformations, and results (literally helping people make more money and surpass their own income goals!). And, I just went running in new sneakers
I’m beyond grateful for this business and “pinch me” life, and it’s so humbling to share business numbers that weren’t even on my radar when I started my business.
More than anything I want to share with you how grateful I am to past me and that list, not only because of the money in the bank (though, that’s beautiful) but also because I’ve done this MY way, and I have the kind of wealth that money can’t buy in my peace, joy, alignment, and what I call my happy little life.
Friend, I was told my $60k-a-year business goals weren’t possible (and had people literally snicker behind my back “how does she think she can do that”), and I now make two thirds of that in a month.
I’ve been told over and over again “people won’t pay for mindset work”, and that you “can’t scale 1:1”, that’s not possible.
And, I got married two months before I turned 40, so don’t get me started on what I’ve heard there!
I share this with you because I want to be a stand for my clients and for you. I want to be a voice that says:
You CAN not only reach that business goal that seems out of reach, but you can also keep on blowing your own damn mind with the income you make - if that’s what feels good to you.
You truly CAN build your business, scale, and create success on YOUR terms. It can work any way you want if you decide to work it.
Your version of success absolutely does not need to look like anyone else’s, including mine.
Your metric for success doesn’t have to be about the dollar amount, either. Something I believe more every day is true wealth is about more than money in the bank. Though, you can desire and have both! This isn’t an either/or kind of thing, and making money isn’t an evil, bad thing.
Be intentional about what you’re creating in your precious life and be mindful of the voices you listen to. Make sure you’re hearing your voice, at the end of the day, it’s the one that matters.
And, if you’re working in those cracks of time wondering if you’ll ever really be able to have your passion be the paycheck that pays your rent AND buys you running sneakers (or the purse, trip, whatever your thing is) double down on the mindset work, clarity, strategy, and action…and keep showing up for your version of success and what’s on your list. I believe in you, and your future self will thank you.
Wishing you your version of success!
P.S. Ready to blow your own damn mind and blow up your business and bank account while you’re at it? I’d love to support you with the clarity, mindset, strategy, and action that goes into creating your version of business success and the bigger paycheck to match.
