That is one of my favourite lessons from Leonie Dawson’s Business Goddess Course, which I did for the first time a year ago.
Last year I was a confused, insecure, freaked-out mess. I’m still not over it, but I can certainly say that I’m on the right path. When I couldn’t find a job in Belgium and felt like I had a whole lot to learn about myself and “what to do with my life”, I decided to take the leap and sign up for the Amazing Biz and Life Academy. God, I love that name! Because that’s what I dreamed of: having an amazing career and an amazing life. I wanted to create my own income somehow, doing work that I love and doing whatever the hell I wanted with my time!
Leonie teaches women all over the world how to start and grow online businesses and she does that by sharing exactly how she did it herself. How she went from blogging and selling prints of her art to a million dollar a year company that keeps on growing.
The ABLA is overflowing with e-courses, workbooks, videos, meditations and, best of all, a forum where we can ask and share anything and where people are honest and serious about sharing their talents and creating the life + work they dream of. They are artists, teachers, writers, coaches - creative and spiritual women.
Since I joined I learned so much about blogging, websites, mailing lists, creating, marketing and selling online products (books and courses), connecting with like-minded people, different ways to make money online and so much more.
However, the best thing I learned was how to get out of that paralyzing freaked-out state I was in. Leonie’s resources, other members’ blogs and forum discussions eventually brought me more clarity about what I want to do. It was a twisty road that included the creation of this website (with my own domain name!), e-books, a LOT of guest blogging, reading and networking, ideas that never left my head, doubting and crying and being broke. Damn, I’m still broke! But things are coming together and looking up. I KNOW now what I didn’t know then: I am a writer. I am going to write all my life and I’ll get better and better at it. I’ll publish this book I’ve been working on, one way or the other. And I’ll write another one. And another one. Money will follow.
Leonie's newest program, Double Your Biz Intensive, is out today! It is so complete and full of advice and I've already started taking notes and thinking about what I can improve about my blogging and online presence. And as she says, theory is not going to grow your business; implementing what you learn will.
