It’s officially been 5 years since I relaunched myself as a coach, speaker and trainer, and while it’s been an exciting adventure, the journey has also been marked with uncertainty, risk, and many unknowns.
Yet I’ve continued to trek along, working my tail off in my commitment to be of service in the world in a way that is meaningful and rewarding.
Connect, Relate, Activate LIVE is one of my greatest achievements and sources of pride, and this year, when we were putting the finishing touches on the sponsorship deck, Michelle thought it’d be cool to include a visual showing all the great stuff we’ve done over the past year.
When she presented it to me, I must admit it felt really good.
I created all of this out of nothing.
How did all this happen?
And the answer to that is really simple.
So simple it might even sound trite to some.
But the truth is, all these opportunities that have come my way are a result of one thing:
I decided to get certified in coaching and to put myself out there.
I decided to take action to attract clients.
I decided to establish myself as an expert in my niche.
I decided I was good enough, smart enough, talented enough to make a go of it.
I decided not to allow my own negative self-talk and limiting beliefs get the best of me.
I decided to invest in myself.
I decided to work with a coach to keep me accountable and moving forward.
I decided that I deserve a business and life that I love.
I decided that I needed to overcome my fear of selling in order to grow my business.
I decided that I needed to learn all about marketing to grow my business.
I decided to find and learn from mentors, to watch webinars, to attend events.
Even when things got really hard, I decided not to quit.
I decided to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
I decided that I’m worth it.
And you know what, Stacy, in my work over the last 5 years, I’ve learned over and over that the ones who succeed, the ones who truly transform their lives – whether it’s losing 10 pounds, finding a soul mate, or launching and growing a successful business – they are the ones who make the COMMITMENT.
Each one started with a decision that there is a better way. And then each and every day, they reaffirm that commitment.
It all starts with the decision.
For me, one of the most impactful decisions I have made in these last 5 years was to learn from the best.
In 2012, I was introduced to digital business guru, Marie Forleo, through her video series, and I was hooked.
She was bright, shot straight from the hip, and dished out no-nonsense, practical, and insightful advice that I could sink my teeth into.
So when I learned she was releasing a video training series about how to launch and grow a profitable business online, I knew I had to get my hands on it.
That decision to learn from the best remains one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my business.
And right now, you have a unique opportunity to make that same decision.
To learn from the best.
Marie has just released the 2nd and 3rd videos in her 3-part series, and they’re a must-watch.
In video #2, she shares the 13 Keys to Killing it Online (download this pdf fun sheet and complete it as you watch), and in video #3, she talks with grads of her program (B-School) and shares details on how to apply for a Scholarship to this year’s program.
Because the B-School program has made a HUGE impact in my own business, I am partnering with Marie again this year and offering a very special bonus package to help you succeed when you enroll in the program, providing personal coaching, as well as an all-access pass to CRA LIVE 2016!!
More on that soon, but for now, grab a cup of tea, sit back, and enjoy the goodness.
p.s. Remember, the last day of Advance Registration for CRA Live is Wednesday, February 17, so register now before prices go up.
** Don’t worry, if you ultimately enroll in B-School, your spot at CRALive is my treat, so your Advance Registration will be refunded within 24 hours of your B-School enrollment.
