We were actually having so much FUN that we paid extra that night to extend the wedding until 2 am. Although wedding wasn't our business, it was still about providing an experience. When making an offer in your actual business (or if you're not an entrepreneur, when asking for a raise or picking a job). It's all about the experience.
I was hitting a serious funk in my business in the Fall of 2018. I wasn't feeling my network marketing business anymore. I was also hosting monthly workshops, teaching my ass off, to people who never intended to hire me, at a studio where I couldn't control the marketing. The days of the workshops came and I didn't even want to go!
I walked to the center of the stage and I delivered my one true sentence, "I moved 400 glorious miles away from Mommy Dearest." The crowd laughed (ironically I wasn't trying to be funny!), and my mentor, Bo Eason, commented on how strong, powerful, feminine, and unapologetic I was. I was holding my stance, smiling, and for the first time in a long time, I felt good.
It got me thinking about my younger self. My scared, timid, not confident, shy self. The people pleaser, yes ma'am, desperately seeking approval- self. I realized how much I've shed that skin. How I'm not the same woman I was in my teens or my twenties, and how I got there. To being confident, achieving my dreams, and writing my own destiny. It was a mindset and focus shift.
So friends, before you go calling me an A-hole because I kindly decline your phone call or coffee date. Or before you go asking another service based provider for free advice, think about it. I'd rather just go for a coffee or phone catch up because we're friends.
Have you ever wanted to get into speaking to grow your business? Want to give better toasts at a wedding or your church group? Do you have a speech lined up and you're terrified you'll bomb? I got you.
They didn't like that I was never around to hang out with them and they got resentful. Every opportunity to take a low blow they did. Like piling as much trash as they could find when it was my day to take out the garbage. I had ZERO Confidence back then.
