According to Forbes, women in the U.S. are starting businesses at twice the rate of men.
When I read that today it inspired me to share a reminder that it’s not only ok for us as women to embrace ambition - if you’re an entrepreneur, it’s a requirement.
And I actually don’t believe for a red hot second there’s anyone out there who ISN’T ambitious.
Nope. But it may feel that way to due to social conditioning. (and um.. nooo you’re not lazy)
After years of speaking directly to women entrepreneurs on their hearts desires, missions + dreams, I can say for certain it sure as heck isn’t the lack of ambition but rather the lack of belief in themselves that can often result in hesitation.
This week I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with half a dozen ladies who have inspired me to a whole other level of mindset + unstoppable ambition within myself!
Not happy with how life is showing up?
What is it for you?
Your career? A relationship? Your physical or emotional health? Your finances? A greater sense of fulfillment?
Only YOU can change it, gorgeous.
Quit waiting for someone to rescue you or for some other event to happen before you think you can affect change.
‘Cuz that’s just fear of the unknown + an excuse that disempowers you into believing you need something outside of yourself to have what you want.
Let me tell you something…
If you’re thinking about change + it’s showing up in your thoughts daily...
Winding down a hectic workday and crazy work week with this guy. 😍
He’s part of the driving force behind my why, along with his brother.
I’ve been tough on myself this week. #vulnerablemoment
I’ve been beating myself up a bit about where I think I should be at this point in my business and playing the coulda, woulda, shoulda game in my head.
I do know better (it’s something I help my clients with) and I did manage to steer that bully mindset around in my head to a much kinder, loving voice and perspective.
How did I turn it around?
Well apart from simply knowing that it’s futile to expect the past to be different, but how we view it CAN change the emotion & energy around it.
I could say that I wish I had started my online business sooner, when my kids were babies, but let’s just say that I never really had the confidence...
