But I'm scared. I don't know what to do. And even if I did know what to do, I'm not sure I could.
Really? Is this how it's gonna be?
Don't puss out on me.
You were born to do this. Don't let anything get in your way.
You need to decide right now that you will do what you need to do make it happen.
There is no time for you weighing all of your options. Your business will change over time. You will make mistakes. You just need to take action.
Today is the day you choose to follow your dreams. You will stop playing small right effing now.
It doesn't matter if you don't know how it's all gonna happen, you just need to choose. Yes! Choose.
Choose to make the change in your life so you can create the success you know deep down you deserve. No one is going to hand it to you on a silver platter. No one is going to do it for you.
Get out of your own way and make shit happen.
It doesn't matter if you don't have the degree. You can be a decorator or stylist. Just get started.
And no, I don't want to get into the argument about the differences between an interior designer and an interior decorator. We're talking about business, making money and living the life you want. If you want to continue to argue about that, you're in the wrong place.
Get over the fear. Write down what you want to do, who you want to be and your goals. Create a vision board of how your life is going to look, feel and be when you get the success you work for.
Repeat after me:
I trust that everything happens in the perfect way at the perfect time.
I am smart, creative and in demand.
I attract clients who are happy to pay me.
I'm the source of abundance.
I deserve because I serve.
I give myself permission to be.
I focus my energy on my goals.
I can make money easily.
I am not apologizing for who I am.
I can achieve anything.
I don't apologize for my fees.
I choose to make money easily.
I choose success.
Today you are at the fork in the road. Do you want to follow your dreams, get the fuck over your fear and own your dreams so you can make it happen?
Choose you. And choose to put in the work. None of the success, money, clients, or life you want to lead comes from wishing. You need to get out of your head and do the work.
You have what it takes to make this happen. It's already inside of you. It's the fire to win. Dream BIG. Because this burning desire inside your soul will eat you alive if you don't choose YOU.
I am so committed to help you make your dreams happen and build a design business that supports you.
