5 Steps To Avoid “Quitting While You’re Ahead”

Ever have this great idea and wonderful vision of what it might become?

In that moment you feel like the possibilities are endless, right?

You’re excited and feeling like you could conquer the world, impact all the lives! Noone can stop or say anything to you…

…Until you start sharing that idea with the world and they don’t seem as excited about the vision as you do.

You might get the <apprehensive> oh, really? “Interesting” or “Who would be interested in that” or “That’s already been done” or “That market is saturated”…

So you retreat.

<Insert self-doubt, comparison, insecurities> and all the reasons you should just quit while you’re ahead.

Womp, womp, woooomp

Unfortunately, this is the case for a lot of Coaches, networkers and entrepreneurs {myself included}.

We see how wildly successful, bright and shiny the leaders in our industry are and think “I can totally do that, and this is how… I’ve got this!”

But we quickly feel like our results aren’t matching up to theirs and the wind is taken from our sails.

Here’s the secret — one that I need to remind myself of often as well.

Your results are NOT supposed to match up to theirs!

Huh? I’m not supposed to be as successful as them? YES, you 100% read that right.

Your results should not be the same as theirs. Their freedoms are not your freedoms. What they’re chasing isn’t 100% what you are. You have different stories and you’re in different chapters of your journey.

And through the process of becoming super intentional, you, too can become Fit and Free in your business.

Those leaders that you look up to, they were once in your shoes! For real!

They had $0 launches.

They had failed attempts.

They had their moments of doubting their whole entire existence or if they should go back to {or stay in} Corporate America!

And, still THEY PERSERVERED. So what should you do if you feel like quitting while you’re ahead?

  1. Find out what works for you and put the blinders on, earplugs in.
  2. Learn the lessons you needed to along the way.
  3. When you do, pivot and change your approach.
  4. Dig deeper into being of service to people instead of making money.
  5. Work harder on your mindset and your why than yo do on your business.

BONUS Tell your vision, hopes and dreams to other visionaries. Other goal setters, hustlers, entrepreneurs that push you to be better and remind you that it’s OK and actually AMAZING when you dream big, keep trying until you figure it out, learn from your mistakes by pivoting. That your goal should be service to your audience and that more than anything your journey will always begin with YOU! If you don’t have a group of people to push you in your business like that, add yourself to my FREE Entrepreneurs Group

All of this is to paint a picture of what you should focus on if you have this amazing idea or vision for your business, but you’re hesitatnt for whatever reason…

There is no one way to running an online business and there definitely is not one way to success. When I tried to fit in and was the “cookie cutter” Coach, in fact, that’s when I felt shackled, restricted, limited and had majorly plateaued in my business.

It’s what we choose to do while things aren’t going as planned that will shape us for when things are going amazingly well for us!

So what if I said the Freedom Marketing Academy was the program to help you create a business that’s specific to YOU.

Not me.

Not your competitor.

No one.


Why can I promise that?

Because I’m not teaching you how to run MY business.

I’m teaching you how to create your own identity, strategy and way of doing business that’s going to be exactly what you and your ideal cient needs.

Here’s the kicker, I’m not making any promises of your success.

I am however letting you know that I am 100% positive in my framework of the Freedom Marketing Academy that I know you’ll instantly feel so much more free, creative and professional and your business will 100% benefit and grow from it.

If not, I will give you your money back.

Sounds too good to be true?

It’s not.

These are the moments that come along in our business that we regret passing.

Regardless of what your past experience has been, I know that you have the ability to change your future outcome.

This is not the time to retreat or feel imprisoned. This is the time to STAND OUT and set yourself apart from the crowd.
