You don’t have a mindset problem. You just don’t know how to start.

It’s not you, I swear.

Like so many small business owners, I too was thrown into a side of business ownership that I never expected – make that ALL sides. When I opened my business, I had no idea that I was expected to be a strategist, Marketing pro, copywriter, accountant, financial planner, problem-solver, HR manager, etc., etc., etc. and all the while offering outstanding service to my clients with a big smile on my face.

It was after a few years of business that I started having aspirations of major growth and realized that I needed help to get there. I hired a business advisor and all of a sudden, I felt frozen in my tracks.

What am I trying to do?
What am I supposed to ask?
Am I supposed to know this already?
How do I even start?

While I was expecting a cache of answers and tools that would skyrocket me into growth mode, I was told I needed a complete mindset overhaul instead. Then months of envisioning and manifesting ensued, and as with everything I do, I was all in just hoping that this would somehow reveal the skills that I was missing.

With vision board firmly in hand, I found myself still devoid of any answers or tools to get started.

This continued with every person I consulted about my business. My goal? GROWTH. The answer: Let’s look at what about you is holding you back. I wanted to scream: NOTHING! Nothing is holding me back; I have never been more motivated in my life. I just don’t know how to get started!

I realized that it wasn’t about a self-induced barrier getting in my way, it was not having the tools to do the work I needed to accomplish my goal. It was just beyond my expertise…it was beyond the expertise of the “expert” I had commissioned.

What I learned at that moment was that I wasn’t getting the right help. I had to find THE person to help me find the skill that would tip the scale for me in the right direction.

That skill as it turns out was resourcefulness, and it took the right Coach to bring that out of me in just the right way. Vision boards and manifesting be gone. Real action is what I needed, and what followed was spectacular…

CONFIDENCE. And with confidence came growth, exponential growth, because I finally knew what I was doing and had the right tools and the right help.

So rest assured, my Friend, there is nothing wrong with you. You just need the right help to break through those roadblocks and become unstoppable.

It’s time to step away from that vision board and take the decisive action you need to accomplish your goals, even if you aren’t even sure of the goals you are supposed to have.

The sky’s the limit when you have the tools to climb.
