My Journey to Self Confidence

New Baby Coach > > 4 years in πŸ™ˆ

When I first became my own boss while still attending college, I had no leadership confidence.πŸ‘ŽπŸ»I attended conferences in hoodies and poorly fit jeans, listened to top coaches, took notes, but my introverted self did not approach anyone I didn't know. πŸ™…πŸΌ‍♀️

I was at networking events with my friends who I met online, but I had NO self worth. I didn't see myself as an equal to these badass boss babes who were top in the company, making 6+ figures, and who always seemed to have their shit together. By that, I mean hair curled, perfect makeup, gorgeous outfits. πŸ˜…

I didn't learn about that in college.  I was always comfortable in workout clothes, but not much else. It wasn't until I dove into personal growth, took better care of myself, and achieved some awesome goals that I felt comfortable enough around fellow leaders.

Just because I got a professional headshot taken at a leadership event though does not mean my introverted self is going to go out and speak on stage, be the first to talk to top leaders in our industry, and ask for top advice.  That's just not what I'm about. But then again, I never want to be that person who remains stagnant because I've put myself into a box.

My hair color has changed, my attitude towards change and challenges has been altered, and I know that every year running my own business has stretched me in so many different ways.

If you are considering launching that blog, or opening up an Etsy store, jumping into a world of WILL be tough. Working for yourself is not for the fainthearted. You'll have to go through change, growth, ups, downs...but it's a hell of a ride. 

I can't believe how much I've positively changed because I CHOSE to get uncomfortable, step out of my comfort zone, and just see what happened. 4 years later of showing up every day to my business and myself, I'm pretty excited to see how far I've come. If you're reading this and you've been considering doing that one thing you've been thinking about non stop...well girl, take this as your sign to make the leap. What's the worst that could happen?
