I wanted, so badly, to be able to say that I was having 5-figure months, running a successful business & genuinely loving my life (and everything in it).
But for a while there, I had absolutely no idea where to even begin, or what creating that kind of financial freedom would require of me…
So I started signing clients who weren’t the perfect fit, resulting in me getting anxiety checking client messages & having to deal with icky situations when boundaries were pushed.
I was also overbooking my calendar & saying yes to things that didn’t light me up, just because I thought that’s what I had to do to hit consistent 5-figure months & become “successful”.
Plus I was working myself so hard into that ground to be continuously growing, achieving & getting shit done that I burnt myself out to the point where I was exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally.
Sure, I was still booking clients, I was still having $10k-$15k months (and sometimes days!) & I was still somewhat in control of my business…
But none of it really felt that good. None of it felt truly fulfilling, like I so badly wanted it to.
In fact, I got to the point where I’d pretty much created my worst nightmare…
I had accidentally & unintentionally created a reality where I felt like my business was controlling me, instead of me controlling it.
… Until one day I decided that enough was enough.
No more taking on clients who weren’t the right fit.
No more hustling or working myself into the ground.
I turned my business upside down until I found what truly felt in total alignment with me & my vision for once.
