Hey, I'm Laura.
Here's What I Know To Be True
1. You may have a Subconscious belief that staying small is safer even though you really want to get out there and make a difference.
2. If you are scared of putting your true self out there, so you create content that you’re sure your “ideal client” would love but it’s not really you it’s gonna feel crappy, AND your content will probably kinda suck and you may even avoid publishing it because it isn’t really your message.
3. And you know what happens if you are not yourself and you DO hit publish? You attract clients that expect the person that you showed them and they’re not going to get it…sucks for you, sucks for them.
How do I know this? Been there, done that, got a T-shirt and you know what it says?:
I’d been trying to get my business(es) up and running for a long, long time. All different kinds of businesses. I changed my business 3 times!! Did all of the design and background work, did the research on my ideal client, filled about 527 journals, (focusing on the wrong thing) but you know what I was doing? Sitting in front of my computer, writing, recording, editing, doing podcasts…and not publishing ANYTHING.
Okay, a few dribs and drabs made their way out into the world, but really mainly nothing. I kept changing my strategy, listening to more and more coaches, I spent tons of money on different programs, on mindset training, on fixing myself like I was some broken piece of machinery…but still I sat and typed and recorded and very, very rarely hit the publish button.
And it felt crappy, spending all my free time away from my husband locked up in my office promising that it would get better, trying to figure out what was wrong with me, and I just kept trucking along for what seemed like f.o.r.e.v.e.r.
The whole time, though, I knew that there was something missing, something that just didn’t feel right. I hated all of my videos, and not because I’m a perfectionist, but because they didn’t feel like ME. I felt like a phony and even though all of the guru’s out there tell you to put your stuff out there even though you feel like a big, fat fake, this was different. I was watching my videos and reading my copy thinking…”that’s not what I think at ALL“.
So what finally happened that changed everything? I “gave in“. This whole time I had been hearing people say “get in alignment, and then“, or get into a high vibe place before you create, or my favorite “fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun…” I wasn’t doing that because I felt like I had to struggle, and you can’t have fun if you are hell bent on struggling, and it can’t be easy if you equate struggle with worth, it has to be freaking hard. Now I see how ridiculous that idea is, how much time I spent proving it, and how easy it is to prove it wrong. If I can help someone else figure that out without all the crap, that would be fantastic.
If you are tired of the struggle, tired of it having to be hard so you can: justify working part time, take time away from your family, or just because it will piss your friends and family off if it’s easy for you…we need to talk.
