Who are you to dream amazing dreams?
Who are you to tell your Kickass story?
Rather, who are you not to.
Because when you believe you can, you’re already more than half way there…
It’s something I know to be true from my own experience, and it’s something I teach my clients too.
I’ve been in the place where after years of emotional and physical abuse, my own self-worth, self- confidence and self-esteem were totally shot.
I’d been labelled as “Victim”, who had no hope of ever achieving anything amazing with her life.
My dreams were shut down as a child when I was told to focus on things which were more reachable for a “poor black farm girl from North Carolina like me”...
And my dreams were shut down again as a Survivor of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault when I was told to focus on just being grateful to have lived past the experiences and hearing friends and family ask, “Why would you want to write about...
I’ve Got 3 Super Simple Tips to Help You Get Laser Focused
OK how many of you have had one of those days where you wake up in the morning and you're like, "CRAP"...I've got 500 things to do today (that are from yesterday)...lol.
Ever Feel This Level of Frustration?
Here's a few of the challenges my Wilder Tribe shared with me recently...
"I come up with great ideas and plan the heck out of them but then when it comes to follow through I get side tracked with the next idea." Eileen Gillis
"Doing a lot of things and feeling like none of them are done properly." Jana Hotarkova
That was my life for real when I first became an entrepreneur; until I learned 3 super simple tips that freak-n changed my life.
Are You Desperately Trying to Find...
"Freedom, live life on my terms and help others achieve their dreams."
"I want to be a speaker and help other people become the people they want to be."
In order to get laser focused on your passion, and move past your frustration so you can...
People Date People They Know, Like and Trust.
The same goes with people buying from you as well. In case you've been under a rock and don't know who I am- lol. I'm Gwendolen, a Published Author, Certified Business Strategist and United States Air Force Veteran. But, I'm also a Kickass Survivor of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
Since being single and forced back into the dating world; I learned quickly how to be super selective about who I wanted as a potential mate. I knew exactly what I didn't want; but wasn't so certain of what I really wanted (initially).
Little did I realize that finding a client would mirror this process (alot!)
The fancy process I'm chatting about is referred to as Relationship marketing. Basically it means you need to effectively market yourself in a way that gets you seen and known quickly through real connections with real people–like colleagues, influencers and potential and past clients.
But beyond that, relationship marketing puts a high...
Being an entrepreneur and/or author is one of the most amazing events you could ever experience in your lifetime- having more freedom to travel, time to spend with your family, community admiration, client satisfaction, more money in your bank and most importantly the feeling of finally achieving success. You know the feeling I'm talking about- being able to wake up (when you want-not by a clock) every day and live your best life doing what you love.
But, along with the amazing success is the lurking energy vampires that are daily trying to suck all the motivation out of you. When I first started my business, I was crazy tired working from literally sun up to sun down; sometimes with only bathroom breaks. I was so passionate about my dream that I forgot about the most important self-care process...learning to self-motivate myself.
One down fall I continually see all new entrepreneurs and authors get caught up in is being eager to serve and make the world a better place (not a bad...
Most Authors write day after day, post on social media about their new fabulous writing journey they're beginning, maybe even send a few emails telling people they plan to self-publish their book, and then wonder at the end of that email...how am I going to self-publish?
You don't have to be like most authors.
Is your manuscript is almost finished? Do you know how or where to get started with self-publishing? Did you know you could've started the process faster, easier and saved some money if you used Self-Publishing?
Thinking back to my first few months of writing, I was freak-n clueless (which is so funny now after publishing my first book, co-authoring another published book and currently writing my second book..lol).
I was just having fun writing and living in the process of creating characters, settings, themes, etc. and I was loving it. When I finally got to the point where I felt as if I was ready to find a publisher...WOW...that's when the anxiety set in and it started...
So you have a Kickass product, program or service and you want to share it...
But, you aren't sure exactly how to find the right people to share it with. Maybe, someone recommend for you to post on social media, someone else encouraged you to just email the people you have, another person said just find them at networking events and someone else told you since there's 8 Billion People on the plane don't worry they'll find you....so, what should you do first?
I can relate to the feelings of being overwhelmed, confused, anxiety and desperation that comes with the excitement of writing your first book or creating a new product, program or service. I was once where you are my Luv. That's why I feel as a successful Industry Influencer, it's my job to give you a step-by-step strategy to set you on a path to Attain Wilder Success as an Entrepreneur or Author.
If I could only go back in time to 2009 and tell the new entrepreneur version of myself exactly what to do to find my perfect...
