Last week my computer crashed and gave me a reminder of how much is possible for you in business in a relatively short amount of time.
Thanks to my business, I was able to call up Apple and have a new laptop sent to me (staying safe and at home). I was also able to pay for it in cash, in full, from my business account.
Here’s what you should know: the computer that crashed was the laptop I bought when I started my business a few years ago.
I remember I couldn’t afford it and wasn’t making enough money at my pay-the-bills 9-5 job to cover one of the investments I needed to start and run my business AND pay my NYC rent. I definitely didn’t have a business account with extra money sitting in it.
I couldn’t afford a lot of things then. I picked up extra gigs to cover my expenses and was literally the girl who’d go to dinner with friends and have ‘already eaten’ because all my money went to my business.
I needed help buying that first computer (just like I needed support and to borrow money to be able to invest in a high-level coach), and I definitely didn’t have a business account with extra money sitting in it at the start.
Looking back, I’m so thankful to the me a few years ago who made a bet on herself and knew what was possible even when the current circumstances told a different story.
I know we’re talking about a material thing, but it’s such a great representation of how much can change in a relatively short amount of time.
Use this example to normalize business growth because this was true before Coronavirus, it’s true now, and it will continue to be true.
If you’re sitting there looking at a business investment you can’t afford right now, know I’ve SO been there.
If you’re showing up and hanging out in discomfort soup as you build your business, I feel you.
If you’re wondering, will this all pay off? I hear you.
A reminder that everyone starts somewhere. MOST entrepreneurs aren’t sitting on a pile of money when they start their businesses. And, everyone goes through a time when they can’t afford their version of a first laptop or are sitting in the gap waiting for the business results to come in.
As someone who’s been there and walked a ton of entrepreneurs through this gap and to the other side where they have a profitable business with money in the biz account, know SO MUCH IS POSSIBLE for you and a lot can change in a relatively short amount of time.
Most people just tap out, change lanes, or turn around and change direction when they’re inches from the finish line.
So, if you’re hanging out in that uncomfortable gap waiting for the dollars to come in, and the pandemic fearcity (fear + scarcity) is making it feel harder here are some words from your future-self on the other side:
✔️Bet on yourself.
✔️Choose discomfort and growth over comfort and stagnation.
✔️Keep showing up for the future you want.
✔️STAY in that gap in business until you’re on the other side.
👉🏻Magic and business accounts with extra money are waiting for you.
Wishing you your version of success right now and always.
