Short answer? When you’re most afraid.
I’ve been in business for about 7 years now. Each time I feel like I’m getting ready to take the next great leap in my business, something strange happens.
I feel like I’m hitting a low point.
I feel like I don’t have the cushion to take big risks.
I feel like I’m about to fail.
Why is that?
This is a message to a younger me. A version of Faye that was freshly starting out in her business. Unsure of what a ‘system’ is or how ‘frameworks’ will help me succeed in my business.
And that message is this.
You’re doing exactly what you need to do. You’re where you need to be. Taking risks, failing a little, feeling uncomfortable means you’re on the right path. Sure, there are some missteps that it’d be nice to bypass but that’s what got you to where you are today.
Today, I’m in year two of my business. I’ve been able to completely replace my salary income. I’ve hired part-time superstars. And, truly, you haven’t seen ANYTHING yet.
I am so so excited about this next phase of my business. I am rebranding under a new name. I’m launching new services and packages that align with who I want to be and what I want my legacy to be. And I’m terrified! There’s a chance that I make all of these changes and nothing happens. But, there’s a chance that it works.
