Happy Friday!! To celebrate Freedom Friday, let's go ahead start the series: The Top 6 Lessons I Learned In My First Year of Business today- we have SIX awesome lessons to cover, so it makes perfect sense to kick it off today and go through all next week!
The #1 lesson that I learned is that there's never a perfect time to start.
I've heard it said that no business or human is born an adult--they're both born babies. 2016 was Life With Passion's first full year in business, and I also spent most of the year growing a human baby, my rainbow baby Fiora. :). So many parallels, and also so much possibility because here's one thing that is SO true about both:
There's never a perfect time to do it.
There's never going to be the perfect time to start or go all-in on a business.
I started Life With Passion as I was grieving the loss of my first daughter Maeve. If I'd asked for advice from "practical" people, they would have told me to conserve my energy and focus on processing my grief AND on my other business, which was full-time at that point.
Guess what? Starting a business was one of the ways I processed and made sense of things, and it WORKED for me and for my clients.
So whatever is going on in your life, if you've got that thing in the back (or front) of your mind that keeps calling you to do something big, to grow and get visible, regardless of the reasons "why not," It's possible for you, too.
I'm not a superwoman or any more special than YOU. I have plenty of times where I feel uncertain or unclear. I do know how to grow a business, though, and if that's your desire, it's learnable for you, too. That's why I'm sharing.
If you have a desire to grow a business while in a full-time job, or raising kids, or dealing with a personal crisis, or heck, all 3, then pay attention to that voice. You have it for a reason.
Ask yourself, what have you been telling yourself about why this isn't the right time to go all-in in your business?
