|| MY OFFICE TODAY ||
I could never go back to an office/salon/indoor job ever again. And I share this with you from a space of love, with the highest intention of serving you and educating you.
When I quit my (well paying, stable) job a few years back to focus my attention solely on my own business, I was scared.
No, I was petrified.
It was a moment that I’ll never forget, that Monday morning- emailing my manager and letting them know i was shooting for the stars. My boss at the time was so supportive and he said to me ‘if you don’t do it now, you’ll spend the rest of your life wondering ‘what if'”.
I didn’t want to wonder. I wanted to roll the dice. To embrace life. To hang on by the seat of my god damn pants.
Now it’s not all being rosy. There’s been times when I was going to walk away (losing charlie made me just not care) or go and get a normal 9-5 (cause working 16 hours a day isn’t legal in most countries!)…. But I didn’t. There’s been days where I been glued to my laptop, hair in a bun and running on fumes. But I didn’t.
I stayed put. Here.
I stayed here because my purpose is greater than I what I can see right now.
I stayed here because I’ve got something the world needs. We all do.
I love the freedom that my business gives me. That I can switch off when I need to and walk outside.
That I can start my online day at 11am and work till 4pm, walk my pups and come back online about 8.
I love that I can talk to who I want when I want, that I can say grateful yes’s and heartfelt no’s, and only choose to do what serves me and my audience the greatest.
The pleasure I get from working with amazing women in our Make Some Real Dough course, from championing them and seeing them learn and grow and try new things.
The wondrous adventures I get to be a part of and places I get to go (watch this space!).
I wouldn’t change any of it.
Not the hard work. Not the tears. Not the days where I fall into bed exhausted. Not the high highs or the low lows. Not the buzzing energy or the adrenaline hits. Not the quiet times when I think ‘what now?’ Not the late nights and early mornings. Not the messy house or the pile of washing.
And definitely not the emails from people all over the world thanking me. Not the facebook and instagram families that I’ve spent years building. Not my customers who come back again and again buying eBooks and programs and courses. Not the people that come up in the street and say hi. Not the people who recognise Hank and Holly and want a pat. Not the lives I’ve been humble enough to touch and certainly not the people I’ve been touched by.
I’m sharing this because if you’re reading this, I want you to know that I’ve been there. I’ve been reading someone else’s work and going ‘why isn’t that me!?’ And ‘I could never do that’.
I am here to lovingly say, yes you fucking can.
You can do anything your heart wants enough.
You can do anything if you’re willing to work and dedicate yourself, and set your intention and your mind free.
And it would give me so much pleasure to help.
