If there's one thing I'm willing to bet on, it's myself." -Beyoncé
Six years ago, I packed up my life in Los Angeles to move to NYC.
I was single, had no apartment secured, no job lined up, and I definitely didn’t have a business. Heck, I didn’t even know coaching was an industry.
What I did have was a massive desire for change.
Somewhere, deep down, I knew change for me required getting way outside my comfort zone, my cozy life in LA, and everything I knew...(bc, let’s be real, my life in LA was pretty great and very cush).
I knew I needed enough of a kick in the ass to be able to see things differently. And, let me tell you, NYC delivers on the ass-kicking almost daily when you first move here to ‘start over’.
They say when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Manhattan became my teacher and schooled me in more ways than one.
Today? Six years later? I’m writing this from my desk in my downtown Manhattan apartment that I share with my man, where I run my dream business that just cleared a $24k cash month.
I LOVE what I call my “happy little life”, the business I’ve built, the clients I have the honor of supporting, and the happiness I feel on the regular.
So today, and every year on my moving anniversary, I celebrate.
(Read my NYC celebration post from three years ago here. It's a good one!)
I celebrate being willing to leap into the unknown.
I celebrate showing the fuck up every day.
I celebrate being willing to get back up after every single knock out.
I celebrate the journey and the process as much as the here and now. Because that was the whole point. That was the opportunity for growth. And, that’s the magic no one can take away from any of us.
The rest? It’s the best icing on the cake. And, I’ll gratefully have my cake today and eat it, too.
To any of you, sitting on a big decision, craving change, thinking about diving headfirst into the unknown...you’ve so got this.
Bet on yourself.
Then, double down on that bet every time - even when you don’t know where to get the chips from.
It’s the best bet you’ll ever make, and you’re a winner just for making it.
Wishing you your version of success.
P.S. Want to hear the behind-the-scenes dirt about what went into having a $24k cash month (and 5-figure months on repeat)? I'm sharing it all next week, including busting a few myths floating around the online space, inside my Facebook Group on Tuesday (Oct. 5th) at 5:30 pm.
Be sure to join my Facebook Community, Business Besties and Creative Bosses here if you're not already a member. You won't want to miss this one!
P.P.S. I have ONE 1:1 coaching spot available for 2019 (and then, that's it until 2020). Is it yours?
This spot will fill, so if you know you're ready to invest in support to help build, grow, and scale a business you're wildly in love with that also makes you bank, please don't hesitate to book a time to talk about what it would look like to work together.
