Five years before my first international speaking engagement I had an idea. I had a vision for something I wanted to do, but Work Your Package as it is right now was not solidified. It wasn’t solid at all. While I was writing my first book, I was also planning my first conference. At that time, the conference consisted of half a day of programming, a panel of speakers, and some lunch. I wrapped it up with my book signing and that was it for the day. That’s what I planned. I was then told by other people I needed to hone in on my target audience. Well, here’s the thing, because I know I was created to speak to the heart of women, it’s hard for me to target one group. I know regardless of the socioeconomic background or profession of a woman, we all have the same pain points and that’s what I speak to.
Here’s my question for you today (and every day) What are you talking yourself out of? What are you telling yourself you can’t do? How many times do you come up with a brilliant idea and you talk yourself out of it before you even take the first step? How many times do you do it? I say this with all the love and honey sugar booboos I can muster up…Get the hell out of your way. You are your worst enemy. If you don’t believe me, check in with the people who love you because I guarantee you they see exactly what you have to offer and you are selfishly sitting on something that’s supposed to be shared with other people. Get the hell out of your way. If you have something you are passionate about, you can’t stop thinking about it and you are wondering how you can bring it to fruition, it is probably something you need to just go ahead and do. If you are sitting there wondering if you should, the answer is probably ‘yes’. If you ask the question, you already know the answer.
