WHAT IF ALL OF YOUR BUSINESS OBSTACLES WERE — ACTUALLY — HUGE, INVALUABLE ASSETS?
As I type to you, I’m sore.
Every muscle in my body is punishing me for yesterday’s workout. My abs, my legs, my back, my arms, all of me.
And yet, I know that the PAIN is part of the process.
So, for the life of me, I can’t imagine why I didn’t IMMEDIATELY know that all of my most agonizing business “hardships” would one day lead to my GREATEST gifts….
Take my kids for example. I remember being so jealous of Ali Brown back in the day as she grew her empire SANS rug rats. Don’t judge me… I had 3 kids, all under the age of 4 with NO babysitter or nanny and — being married to a public school teacher — we had no room in our budget for such “luxuries.”
During that time, though, because of all of those reasons, I also learned how to RUTHLESSLY protect — and direct — my time. As any mother with young kids can tell you, it’s hard to go to the bathroom alone… so you can imagine carving out time to create an impressive income or build an empire… both of which, of course, I did.
TOP question I receive STILL to this day: MICHELLE, HOW DO YOU GET IT ALL DONE?
ANSWER: Well, friend, I forged TIME HACKING SKILLS out of pure will and necessity “back in the day” and I never forgot them.
The little challenge of being a busy mom of toddlers… well, it also FORCED me to see through the CLUTTER and B.S. about business.
And so I get asked ROUTINELY, how I can be so CLEAR on what to do next.
ANSWER: I had no time to waste so I became a NINJA when it came to identifying the non-negotiables and ignoring the rest.
I thought the fact that having only $213 in savings when I quit my job to build this business was actually a BAD THING.
But then, 2008 hit.
And while I had already endured my own personal recession…. businesses all over the country needed help BOOTSTRAPPING their marketing.
ANSWER: Oh, DON’T I KNOW how to do just that!!! I started this empire of mine — now with members in all 50 states and 8 countries — with an investment of $50. (Which came OUT of the $213 I had in savings, in case you were wondering.)
BOTTOM LINE: EVERY obstacle/challenge/hardship I faced has turned out to be an edge — dare I say it, even an UNFAIR ADVANTAGE– for my business and my brand. I’m willing to bet the farm the same is/will be true for you.
