What you don’t know about failure as an entrepreneur

Failing is normal as an entrepreneur. You’ve probably experienced this already. It can be failure of no engagement on a post, or 0 signups for a new program.

Even though it’s part of the growth process, a lot of entrepreneurs allow fear of failure to hold them back.

Because they are afraid it will make it mean something about them. Like:

“I’m not good enough”

“I don’t have what it takes”

“I need more skills”

“She has the ability, but I don’t…”

The tendency then is to unconsciously overcompensate. To think if you work harder, longer, THEN you will be worthy. Then you can out race failure. Instead of using the failure as data, just numbers, to gain an understanding of how to refine and improve.

The problem with unconscious overcompensation is:

  1. You can’t out race failure. It’s going to catch up in some way, surprise you, take the wind right out of your sails. This will then lead to doubt of yourself, your capabilities, and ability to run business.
  2. You will exhaust yourself. Take it from me. I lived this. It’s just not sustainable.

What I teach in the mastermind is to anticipate failure. To create buffer and space for this to happen. To have a process to prevent it from happening again, in the same exact way. To learn and grow from the experience so you come out stronger, not beaten down.

You have a plan for the future and feel confident that reaching your goals is inevitable. A done deal. While knowing, you just might fail again in the process. Or, it could go very smoothly the second try. But you won’t give up. You will keep going.

And, you will have a community of people to pick you up. Dust you off, help you to learn, celebrate the wins and keep you going. If you are ready to take up space, show up, fail and know that you can get back up again come join us.



PS. If you are looking for help with growing your side hustle and/or business, but are turned off by the masculine and “bro” type energies, then the Awaken Mastermind is your next best step.

I’ll help you to uncover your gifts (even if you are sensitive like me) and use them as strengths. How to work with your nervous system, how to create safety around being visible (which you need so people know you are available to help them!) and so much more.

In the Mastermind you will learn:

  • The tactics to grow your business while creating more time freedom
  • Structure and systems that will give you the foundation to earn 100k
  • More trust, confidence and belief in yourself and offerings so you find your own unique path and stand out from the noise and competition in a saturated market
  • Tactics that care for your nervous system to release stress and worry so you can get a better nights sleep (the missing component in a lot of masterminds!)
  • Weekly mentoring calls to ask your individualized questions
  • Private group to get daily support
  • Access to all recorded workshops, and programs such as Nutrition for Healing & Replenishment, Stress Less Catalyst Program, Heal Your Low Back Blueprint, Ignite Ur Business Framework
  • and so much more….
