It's getting damn chilly in Melbourne now so I'm packing the car this week and driving north to spend a month in my old stomping ground... the nature paradise of Byron Bay!
It suits my gypsy girl and sun chasing nature to have created an online business that allows me to blow with the breeze. Yay!
Getting my holistic business off the ground and earning enough to firstly survive and then progressing to now thrive... was not always an easy road.
There were definitely times of struggle and many mistakes made.
I love sharing the short cuts and mistake avoiding tips I've learned along the way with my soulful business mentoring clients.
One of the biggest mistakes in my business was born from my fiercely independent nature that kept me stuck at survival level for many years.
I had a crazy determination to do it all myself. I did my own self motivating, created my website from scratch, I designed my own logo, I did all of my marketing, advertising, accounting and administration. You name it I did it! Ha!
I read lots of free blog posts to get free tips and information on creating an online business but this meant I scratched the surface and I didn't dive deep enough to get the help I really needed.
I built my business very slowly baby step by baby step and my fierce independence held me back.
I was too scared to invest any money in myself because I thought that I couldn’t afford it yet.
“Oh when I'm earning more a month I'll start hiring some help” I would say to myself.
But that day seemed to take forever!
I finally realised that I was never going to move to the next level until I learned to ask for help and was ready to invest in myself.
I did an expensive online business ecourse that filled me with great business knowledge, new ideas, inspiration and connections to move forward.
I didn't have the money at the time so I borrowed money for the first time in my life. The course connected me with lots of other like minded entrepreneurs and we all started meeting and supporting each other like a pack of wild lions on a soulful mission.
Ahhh finally I was no longer the lone ranger in the entrepreneur world.
What felt like a risky move at the time, a move that had me jump out of my financial comfort zone, turned out to be the springboard to boost my business.
My business turned to completely online and off I moved to the magical island of Bali.
When in Bali I continued to gather support. I began outsourcing some of my admin tasks and got help with the areas that were not in my zone of genius.
I finally dug deep and plucked up the courage to hire a private mentor late last year and my business instantly took another leap to expand my income and my impact.
I realized that every time that I reached out for help and invested in myself ... my business jumped up to a new level.
I had spent year after year hovering at survival level because I was too stubborn to ask for help and was too mingy with my finances to invest in my dream taking off.
When I finally did... my business took flight!
So don't make the mistake that I made and drag on the financial struggle for survival longer than needed.
Whether you are looking to start your own business or move it to the next level or you just want to make a radical change in your relationship with money, do yourself a favor and ask for help, invest in yourself and the abundance always follows!
