What would you willing to do to live life on your own terms? Are you willing to work on your business on the side? Are you willing to have a side job while you build your business?

Here’s the truth about me. I don’t have a trust fund. I don’t come from money. I don’t have any rich relatives who will leave me any inheritance. I don’t have a large savings account. I have an aversion to high debt and high-interest loans; hence, I don’t have a business loan. I don’t have a rich boyfriend who supports me. I am in this alone. I have always been in this alone.

And I ain’t gonna lie to you, it has been hard. When you are starting a coaching business, no one really understands what you’re doing; hence, you don’t get much support. This is a huge test of your faith and belief in what you are doing. Can you keep going when few believe in you or understand you? Can you keep going when you start to doubt yourself? When it would be so much easier just to get a job instead of thrashing through your own fears about your ability to achieve success in this?

These are important questions to answer. Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart.

I am still in it. I have funded my business through tutoring, editing essays, teaching, and waiting tables. It isn’t glamorous. It is real. I haven’t shared this part of me because I was ashamed. I didn’t want people to know I was hustling on the side to fund my entrepreneurial dream. I didn’t want people to know what I was doing until my business was rocking. I was hiding. And it isn’t fair. It isn’t fair to me and it isn’t fair to you.

We need to share our struggle as much as our success so that others can see they are not alone in their struggle. And so we don’t feel so alone in ours.

I don’t want to hide anymore. I may be ridiculed or criticized or ‘unfriended’ but I will no longer betray myself.

The more I share my truth and step into my power, the more others see that they, too, can do the same. I am committed to continuing to rise and to helping others rise too because it matters to me. No one wins when we hide and play small. Everyone wins when we step into our power and show up fully for life on our terms. We owe it to ourselves to give ourselves a chance to live with passion and purpose.

Imagine the effect that will have on you, your family, your community, and the world.

Being fully alive each day, contributing something meaningful to this world in our own unique way is the best gift we can give the world and ourselves. 

I want to help other new and aspiring entrepreneurs overcome their blocks to success and in order to do so, I have to come clean about my path. If you are on this path, I want you to know you can do it and you don’t have to take the long road.

You can get support so that you are reaching that next level in your business, whether that means finally launching your business or booking your first client or making your first $5000 or increasing your sales. I can help you get there. I can help you cut through your own limiting beliefs, work through resistance, shift your mindset, alter your perspective, take inspired actions, and move you closer to the life and career you desire.

We are not meant to walk this path alone.

Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey, I would love to support you. My Level Up program is specifically designed to create the support and community needed to guide you and your business to success – however you define it (we’ll work on that too!).

I’d love to talk with you more to see if this program is a good fit and how I can better support you as you go after the life and work you’ve been craving.

To being real,
