YOU'RE AN ACTION TAKING MAVEN
You actionista, you. Your special sauce is your ability to do the things that will take you to the next level. Your commitment and willingness to step outside of your comfort zone is a strength that few possess.
Taking action in spite of imposter syndrome and comparisonitis is a feat that you should be darn proud of. But it doesn’t exactly feel like “the ball is rolling." In fact, most days it feels like you’re pushing a boulder up a mountain.
Information overwhelm got you down?
Analysis paralysis making your palms all sweaty?
Tech hurdles and lack of confidence got ya slumped on the couch watching Girlboss on Netflix and wishing someone else could swoop in and do the hard stuff for you?
You’re not alone.

Have you ever gone white water rafting?
When you hit the rapids there’s no choice— you’ve just gotta paddle for dear life and trust that you’ll make it to peaceful waters soon. And when you do get to the other side (and you always do) all of that paddling is so worthwhile.
That’s exactly what this phase of building your dream biz is like. It requires so much trust in yourself and your abilities.
When you’re holding down a day job and building your empire of awesome on the side— you’re right smack dab in the middle of those turbulent waters that demand stamina alongside constant surrender.
Here’s the thing: when you do what you love, building a business that satisfies your soul isn’t all that difficult. But you have to believe that this is possible, that the job you hate is just a means to an end, and that YES, you will get to where you want to go.
You’ll arrive at peaceful waters and it’ll feel so darn rewarding *wine + snack break included*.*

WANNA KNOW MORE ABOUT ACTION TAKING MAVENS?
Banish overwhelm through action. Embrace your “failures” because they’re just as important as your wins.
Next Steps: When you’re struggling to stay motivated, remember that this phase is so essential. Growth isn’t always pleasant, but it’s worth it. Growing pains are just part of the process and when you can learn to embrace them because it means you're being stretched in new ways, you'll come out on top!
Keep trying. Keep testing the waters. Keep being your beautiful self
When the learning curve and the overwhelming to-do list get you down, it’s totally OK to befriend the couch, pour a glass of wine and lose yourself in 5 episodes of Greys Anatomy.
You're an action taker but sometimes even the busiest of action takes need to make "rest" the grand action. Busy isn't a badge of honor, friend.
