Gather round to for a short story entitled: Why having support, guidance, and accountability is essential if you want to create a successful and sustainable business...
You may not find this story as ironic and funny as I do but as I was putting the finishing touches on a speaking engagement I had earlier this week I found a recording from 2016 of my mentor Heather and I where she was supporting me during a full day intensive I traveled to her home for.
On the recording Heather asks me to update her about upcoming speaking engagements I have booked.
I tell her "I haven’t made leeway with it and I’m not really reaching out or following up" to which she says “And why haven’t you been doing that?” to which I reply with these exact words:
“I don’t have an answer for that.”
As the conversation goes on I fully admit I’m not putting any of this in my calendar or following through!
(tisk tisk Jen!)
What I find funny is her straight question and my straight answer. No excuses.
I simply didn’t put it in my calendar and I didn’t follow through.
And this is exactly why I have had support in place for 8.5 years (and counting).
This is also why I provide High-Touch support for our High-Level Non-Nine-to-Five members who know they are meant to be successfully self-employed. I know alllll of the tricks and alllll of the excuses and alllll of the reasons (even if you think I don’t...I do, hehehe).
This poises me to see crystal clearly what is needed for one to create successful self-employment.
If you’re ready to create successful self-employment and willing to not make ANY excuses

Seeing you Successfully Self-Employed,
P.S.: Check out this awesome celebration from Non-Nine-to-Five member Tracey:
“Today I celebrate that I got one student enrolled for my class immediately after a direct reach out to her mother. Her mother is an educator and given the class is virtual I was feeling nervous about reaching out to her since she could "judge my teaching." I had a moment of "screw it, who cares" and reached out anyway. Another seat has been filled, only 3 seats left!”
