Two years ago I made the extremely exciting decision to build my online business.
I wanted what we all want: to quit my day job, leverage my income, to work from anywhere, to be able to work flexibly around my children, all the things that are attractive to this vocation.
I got caught up in the whole “All you need is a laptop and an internet connection and you can make money online” thing and started an online course about how to build my online business.
The very first thing you learn from the plethora of people vying to teach you how to launch your 6 and 7-figure business is some variance of ‘the world needs that thing that only you can offer’, ‘just be your authentic self' and, ‘if I can do it so can you’.
So many of these online business courses then follow a similar line in my experience, with the whole ‘you can make money before you’ve even built your online course’ thing. They teach us to do a Beta Test of some sort...
SHOCK. THE ONLINE BUSINESS COURSE YOU DID DIDN'T HELP YOU LAUNCH YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS INTO THE STRATOSPHERE!
So you’ve done an online course about building a business, and it turns out it’s freaking way bigger, way more challenging and way more expensive with more moving parts than (a) you could have dreamed of and (b) ‘they’ first lead you to believe when you made that *huge* step and purchased the $2K course!
If you’re anything like me, you got drawn in with promises like:
“All you need is a laptop and an internet connection and you can start making money online”
“Anyone can build an online course; you have a unique gift that only you can share with the world!”
and my favourite,
“I’m going to show you the RIGHT STEPS in the RIGHT ORDER (or the ever popular my exact BLUEPRINT) so you can build a business and life that you love.”
HOW YOU FEEL
You've done the course, you've an idea of what steps you...
I've done a lot of soul-searching around why I so passionately want to launch my online presence - it's not something that comes naturally to me at all! I've been on quite a journey over the past five years or so and everything that has happened in that time has led me to this point. This point where I have this huge fire in my belly! Where suddenly I've got a real sparkle in my eye, energy in my step, I motivated, I'm learning and developing, I'm loving life! But I've been searching for the big why. Why this? Why now? Why do I value this so much? Why am I so motivated in this specific areas of my life?
And it hit me not so long ago!
I am passionate about people, myself included who have this perception that they have lost their power. Not their power over the world, not power over anyone else. Their. Own. Power.
