struggle

At the start of this year I was in struggle town.  I had all these brilliant ideas to take my biz to the next level but I couldn’t concentrate on any one thing.

An email would arrive in my inbox saying I NEED to be doing video marketing.

Then I’d see a blog post saying snapchat is the next biggest thing that I simply MUST be on to make an impact.

Or I’d be listening to a podcast explaining that guest posting is the absolute BEST way to drive traffic back to my site.


I was so overwhelmed and information overloaded that I ended up just procrastinating on everything.  Hello binge Netflix, or one too many drinks with friends on the weekend.  Making myself feel better by calling it a “balanced” lifestyle.

One day I remember vividly, I was sitting on the train on the way home from my desk job, feeling miserable that I had just sat in back to back useless meetings all day.

I was mindlessly scrolling through facebook (when I probably should have been doing something productive for my biz) when Arabelle Yee popped up into my newsfeed.

I used to work with Arabelle in her past corporate life and now I see she had built her biz to huge success in (what looked like) only a couple of short years.

I knew it was time to stop making excuses and take ACTION.

So I filled out my deets on her website for a free discovery call and whalaaa next minute she was my uber successful mentor/biz coach giving me much needed clarity on the exact steps I should take in order to finally get some traction in my biz.

Now I can’t procrastinate or Arabelle will kick my butt, and I have clear direction and purpose which is helping me build my biz to a point where I can say bye bye to my desk job FOREVER!

If there’s one tip I can give that helped me get through struggle town these past few months, it would be to take ACTION.

Get HELP, whether it is hiring a biz coach, or surrounding yourself with likeminded biz babes at one of our events, or investing in yourself by buying an online course.

Just DO something.
