I had lost my mind for a second.
Can you believe I had been helping my employers make hundreds of thousands of dollars as a marketing manager, and my business was on struggle mode? I had many of the same thoughts that are running through your head right now:
- "Do I even have what it takes to do this?"
- "What should I sell?"
- "How can I build my brand and following?"
- "How do I actually make money online without having much time for launches and a ton of content?" and my favorite,
- "How do I grow my social media without having weekly photoshoots and immaculate makeup?"
But breathe easy; to get somewhere you haven't been, you just need directions. You see, in Corporate America we created plans for every single strategy we were going to implement and every tactic we wanted to try in the calendar year. Everything was intentional and strategic. A lightbulb went off. I created a marketing plan for myself. I needed to give myself directions, a plan. I stopped trying to play catch up, watching a million webinars, and doing a bunch of random things, and got ahead of the game instead. I went from breaking even, to having 5 figures sitting in my account AFTER my bills we paid and I paid myself. Don't you want that too?
