Let me guess:
You dream of quitting your 9 to 5 and going all-in on your business, but you don’t feel “prepared.” You’d rather drive your car to your shit office for the next 5 years while you let the idea of joy simmer.
You want to leave your toxic marriage, but you won’t be ready til the kids grow up. (yay, only 17 more years of hell! Maybe you can take up a hobby like cycling that will pass the time.)
You want to start a podcast, but you’re not ready. I mean, where would you even start?
You want to consider hiring someone, but not just yet. You want to FEEL more ready… That’s for down the road, right? (Might as well wait til I HATE my business and my life and am at rock bottom and need help…that will be the perfect time to finally hire someone. They’ll love working for my sad ass.)
All jokes aside…it’s pretty true. We often wait for the feeling of readiness to happen to us by faith or coincidence or…well, rock bottom. The pain is so bad that we MUST change our environment.
Well-meaning people are often quick to tell me that my businesses grew quickly because I just have that “it” factor. For each person, they describe this “it factor” differently. They’ll say, “you just know what you’re doing!” or ‘You’re just so much more creative and motivated than me!”
It’s cute, really. I nod and smile.
But between me and you, you know what I think my “it” factor is? The factor that took me from Broke AF waitress to 7-figure CEO with dozens and dozens of employees in only 6 years?
It’s my ability to consider myself ready without any evidence that I actually am. Only evidence that I am not.
Did I feel ready when I started writing all of you thousands of beautiful folks every week just riffing on whatever is in my head and asking you to consider letting me help you in your business? Naw. My first 100 posts/emails were literally pieces of shit, lol.
But now this brings me new clients and new joy every single week.
Did I feel ready when I finally started my podcast? Hell NO. The first episode took 7 (SEVEN!) different takes before I could calm my voice down enough to not sound shaky in the microphone. My first 10 episodes ended in tears. Now this podcast pulls in tens of big ticket clients per month.
Did I feel ready when I signed on the dotted line to build my first building for Massage Strong? (Okay I ACTUALLY wasn’t ready because I had no idea I was supposed to already have a contractor, or permits or even the slightest idea of how much it was going to cost me.
Sidebar: I signed the contract for a building LITERALLY THINKING it would cost about 10k to build out. I can’t laugh hard enough at this. I had a grand total of 6 different contractors come and they all quoted me about 120-170 grand. I legit cried for 2 weeks thinking I was going to have to pay rent on an empty building that I went under contract on, because I couldn’t afford the buildout and was too ‘dumb’ to have quoted beforehand.)
But we figured it out. Got turned down 11 times for bank loans. But that 12th time was the charm. Now that location alone sees hundreds of clients per week and has paid off that bank loan 12 times over already..
So I want to ask you this:
What if you just simply CHOSE to be ready, instead of waiting for a FEELING of readiness?
What if you made readiness a circumstance and not a feeling?
We, humans, have this cute way of torturing ourselves with our desires, and dancing around the ideas without allowing ourselves to trust that we are ready. But the ironic thing is, that trust won’t come to us from anywhere external or anywhere besides ourselves. We often sit around and twiddle our thumbs in hopes that the Universe makes a MASSIVE move that pushes us towards finally quitting our jobs or hiring someone. (Is it going to take your boss and you having a complete blowout argument before you actually follow your dream and leave your 9 to 5? Is it going to require you becoming injured/ill before you are FORCED to finally hire someone to help at your business?)
What if you are ready now, but you’re wasting your time telling yourself you’re not?
Because, my love, this is what is happening.
Do the thing.
Get a divorce.
Lose the weight.
Have the baby.
Start the podcast.
Start the emailing list.
Invest BIG in your business.
The #1 excuse I get from students who want to come into the Thirty More Mastermind is some form of “my business isn’t ready for a high level mastermind.”
AKA: “I” personally, am not ready for a high level mastermind.
- You don’t feel like your business is “big enough” for Thirty More.
You don’t have any employees yet.
You aren’t pulling in massive numbers yet.
You don’t have a clear idea of exactly how to get where you’re going.
Things in your life aren’t perfectly set up for a mastermind (ie: you’re going through a divorce or a pregnancy or some sort of emotionally trying time in your life and you don’t feel like you will be able to ‘fully give yourself to this mastermind.’
Readiness is a circumstance.
It is a choice.
Do we need to put it to Taylor Swift lyrics to make it hit home?
‘Cause ready is my boyfriend
Ready is a god
Ready is the breeze in my hair on the weekend
Ready’s a relaxing thought
Aren’t you envious that for you it’s not?
Sweet like honey, ready is a cat
Purring in my lap ’cause it loves me
Flexing like a goddamn acrobat
Me and Ready vibe like that
In all seriousness: Readiness is a choice.
My mastermind was created for all service-based entrepreneurs who have created 50k or more in their business. If you have hit this number, then you are ready. Any other excuse or worry is just noise.
Once you BELIEVE you are ready, the strategies and empowerment will fall into place. You will make decisions more clearly. You will be more confident. This is why so many students report growth in their business JUST from the simple act of applying. Not even from the content or the support, but simply making a bold decision for yourself, choosing readiness, and applying for the mastermind instantly up levels how you show up in your business.
That’s CEO energy.
That’s 6 figure money energy.
You have exactly less than 4 days to apply for this round.
Make your power move.
PS: Below is an image of the place I rented and assumed it would only cost 10k to fix LOL. the following photo is the day we opened our doors and represents me going from caterpillar to butterfly. I learned so much and grew so much during that time of complete terror.
