Hey, hey, hey… good evening, everyone.
I know I was a little radio silent last week. I hadn’t deserted you or the blog. Just needed a week to step away and regather my thoughts and make some plans. Such as… I’ve been working on recruiting another contributing writer for thr blog. Waiting for her confirmation, so I’m excited about that.
Beem brainstorming about my next venture as a side hustle coach. Nervous and excited. Nervous about the execution of the busines more than anything. Still brainstorming the name. Working on creating programs for the new ventures. Just working with the momentum I have and trying to do big things quietly.
So, let’s continue to march forward .
One of the biggest challenges to keeping a goal and staying focus is getting off track. And it will happen. You will fall off track. We all do. I mean, unless you have amazing will power and an unshakable force built already inside you, you will stumble getting to the finish line.
But that doesn’t mean anything. If you get off track, just get back on. Simple, right? Because it is! Don’t make a big fuss about it. We all get distracted or overwhelmed or even fed up. We’re human, ladies. And we deal with a lot in our lives day to day. So when a distraction comes along or we become impatient, or it seems like too much for us and we just stop trekking to the end, that’s okay. Take that moment to pause. And then… reset, restart or redo whatever it was you were working towards. We’re not aiming for perfection. We’re aiming for accomplishment. And those two are not mutually exclusive.
And when do reset or restart or redo, don’t wait till the next week or month to get back on track. That’s too long. If the next opportunity is the very next day, jump on it. What about that whole notion of pausing? Well, when you catch yourself off track, let that day go. Be at peace that you weren’t your best that day. Then, get ready to start anew tomorrow.
Because you can. And you should. We got big dreams and big things to accomplish here and we’re gonna need to stay motivated to do it, ladies. So fall track, it’s all right. Just make sure you get back on.
As much as I wanted success to happen for me instaneously, I’m actually happy that I’m going along the way I am.
What do I mean by that? It’s my firm belief that success is given to us when we are ready for it. And while working towards it, we’re gearing up for it. Positioning ourselves for that moment. For me, all this time I still manage to have steady work with clients outside of my 9-5. Whether they’re repeat clients or new to me, somehow I still get work every month. And I love that. I really do. I love staying busy providing a service or working on the business. It makes me feel like I’m getting closer to the goal.
So wherever we may be in the stage of our hustle — launching, rebranding, or growing — it’s always.good to still have work coming in. A small reminder that we’re doing something right.
Happy Friday, my fellow hustlers!
