Face Financial Fears That Hold You Back
You’ve thought about being an entrepreneur,
yet you have no idea where to start.
You already are an entrepreneur, yet the thought of
being in charge of your future still excites and terrifies you.
The concept of having financial freedom is a vision,
yet the reality feels very far away…
You know there are some things holding you back,
yet you can't pinpoint exactly what they are.
may trigger some emotions, yet you aren't exactly sure what or why.
At the same time, you have a deep desire to help people and you know you can make a bigger impact, yet YOU are unsure of exactly what to do.
You are afraid of not sharing your story, your experience, and your service….So you are still reading.
You have a deep feeling that I get you because you’ve gotten this far
(and I do!) I’ve been where you are, or am currently growing through it!
For the past six years, I’ve been a full-time entrepreneur, and every financial fear and energy associated with it has been exposed (or is being exposed). Even though I had a lot of external evidence (like being a CPA + MBA, working with >7 industries before being a full-time entrepreneur, generating others 7-9 figures annually consistently, and reaching 6+ figures before 30), I still had massive fears. These mainly resulted due to chaos or instability I saw as a child with finances that I still held inside, and have been released step by step.
I thought if I had these experiences
despite a lot of external evidence,
imagine how others may feel.
What if you were able to be who you are,
share your story, and monetize your message?
What if you overcame your fears of being
seen across many platforms?
What if you shared publicly your message
and spoke online and offline?
What if you considered your financial
upbringing and highest income seen?
What if you practiced seeing and receiving
the money in advance to face fears?
What if you faced fears on being worthy
of teaching your message and receiving money?
What if you overcame the internal beliefs with
action every single day to create new patterns?
Imagine creating the life you love…
Imagine creating a business you love.
It is possible to do it. How do I know?
Because I have overcome so many of these fears, and continue to every single day.
I also share with others to do the same.
If you only do one part of the equation (internal only or external only), the results will not be what you want them to.
You will feel misaligned in various ways because you will be. I did the external only prior to being a full-time entrepreneur, and always felt like something was missing despite having exponential results. I also did the internal only in year four of being a full-time entrepreneur, then the external was missing because I wasn't marrying the two together.
When you combine facing fears internally with the external work to get the results you want, powerful things happen.
I figured it was time to share it to serve others. So, how do you do it?

Fear 1: Being Seen
Last year, I realized how I had created an invisible ceiling from all the years I was in corporate (from 1998-2011) of being "safely seen" within each company, but not publicly beyond.
In comparison, when I was in college, I felt free and was seen in all aspects across classes, organizations, leadership, friends. At the same time, years had passed during that time.
As a result, my brain had become conditioned (like Pavlov's dog) to be "safe" in certain environments. I realized I had all these thoughts in my head the more I even started to think about getting out there more - whether it was social media, collaborating with influencers, speaking engagements (beyond my comfort zone), video and online experiences, and more.
