When you think about money, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? It’s ok to be honest on this one.
Since you deal with money every day, you feel like you *should* have better control of it. You know what though? It’s ok that you don’t. Motivating yourself to learn about money is how you overcome this.
When you started your business, you did all the right things. You researched your ideal client, made sure you had a website, and you’re doing your best to show up on social media. You want to grow your business so you can validate that leaving your cushy corporate job was the right thing to do. Even though in your soul you know it was.
But, the money part is holding you back. Not necessarily making money, but knowing what to do with it once you have it. Are you saving for the right things? Can you invest in that course you want to take? Are you doing it right? These questions make you doubt your abilities and start a negativity cycle that’s hard to break.
But, if you think about it, you were never taught what to do with money. Not in school, not in college, not anywhere. You see, you’re smart enough, you just need some guidance.
Invest in learning about the money part of your business like you invested in that email list building course and watch your skills grow. I’m not saying spend money, but carve out some time to learn and give yourself grace when it takes a few tries to get it down.
Here’s where to start:
- Write down your top 3 money fears or questions.
- Then write down one thing you can do to work on each item.
- Re-evaluate in a couple of weeks to see your progress.
Results come from small steps taken over time, so be patient with yourself. You’ve got this.
