If you’ve already mentally checked out of your corporate career, and you’ve come up with an idea for a coaching or consulting business; or if you’re brand new to the coaching and consulting industry, this blog is super important!
Things are shifting in the world - jobs are being automated, workers rights are being eroded. I bet you are doing paid overtime and taking on extra projects all the time.
I checked out of the corporate world 4 years ago. I knew I could never spend my whole life giving all my time and energy to a job that gave me very little in return. I built a business based on existing knowledge I had - first in stress management, then later as that business grew, as a business mentor for women.
If you are anything like I was when I was first starting my online business and I was still fully employed, you probably hate your job. I hated my job!
I didn’t have the freedom that I wanted to have. Everything was on my employer’s terms - when I had to work, when I could leave, when I got paid…
It wasn't the freedom life that I wanted. I wanted to be able to live life on my own terms. Maybe you are also feeling the same way?
If you are at the stage I was at then, then you probably worked out that becoming your own boss is the only way you will be able to create that freedom lifestyle you desire. It is the only way that you are going to actually dictate the terms on which you live.
Basically, I’ve had plans to start this big project and I’ve literally been resisting it for months.
Maybe you’ve been seeing me post, like, “There’s this BIG THING coming!” ... and then it just hasn’t felt right so I’ve not launched it.
There were some legitimate reasons not to do it… but then, the pattern kept repeating.
I realised that it was actually just resistance. The problem was something in my head, not something circumstantial.
