It's been a loooong week at the day job. So freaking excited for the long weekend and spending my Friday at the coffee shop working on my REAL LOVE job - my coaching biz. ❤️ Can't wait to do this full time some day! Do you have a dream life? Freedom, flexibility, doing something you love?? Do you think it's a pipe dream? I did. But I don't now. I'm building it. On the side, while maintaining the day job that's currently paying the bills. I keep doubling my coaching income & I can see it really happening!! A life where I get to do what I'm actually passionate about, work from anywhere (hello travel!!), make my own hours, contribute light & positivity to the world AND pay the bills.
I like my job and have been successful in my career. But when you get past your 20s you start to think about your life a little differently and prioritize things like time with loved ones, contribution to society, building long-term income for yourself (I've seen way too many people get fired), and flexibility to mesh the things you love to do with the things you must do.
It's still work. There is no such thing as getting something for nothing. As an entrepreneur currently building TWO businesses (my husband & I also own a salon), I can tell you that it takes guts, determination, resiliency, sacrifice, a solid belief in your mission, and a super strong work ethic. But the difference is, you are building it for YOURSELF not someone else. YOU will reap the long-term benefits; YOU will be able to step back and decrease your work hours but not your income after you've built it.
Being in charge of your own destiny is both scary and empowering. But I'll take on that fear over letting things just happen to me any day. I lived that way in my early 20s - simply riding the wave of momentum & societal norms - and ended up divorced.
I'm feeling inspired so this got long. If you're still reading, maybe it's because this strikes a chord with you!! ✨ I have a new coach training group starting at the beginning of every month to mentor new Team Fit Love coaches to kick off their business. 💕 Become A Coach orwww.tinyurl.com/joinfitlove to apply.
