On October 7th, 2015 I launched a 2nd business called Boss of Me Tees. It’s an online apparel shop for women entrepreneurs, free spirits and quiet rebels.
Normally, I’d be tempted to spin this post into 10 Things I’ve Learned or share glimpses of my emotional journey so that I might inspire you in some way. At some point, I think I’ll do that. Lord knows I’ve acquired a lot of good gems over the past few months and I’d love to pass those on to you.
But today, I just want to honour the fact that I achieved something special for myself.
In 9 months, I created something (cool) from nothing.
I had a vague idea and I gave myself permission to follow it through from concept to end product. I said yes to hard work, a big financial investment and a steep learning curve.
I’m so proud of myself and of the Boss of Me Tees brand. I feel like I wouldn’t be walking my talk if I pretended otherwise.
If there’s one thing I could invite you to do, it’s this: Stop stepping over your achievements.
Instead, acknowledge the effort and courage it took to create something from nothing. Enjoy the moment before you jump ahead into new markers of success.
Whaddya say? Will you join me in celebrating what you accomplished this past year? The new website you built; the new program you created and launched; the new e-book you wrote; the retreat you lead; the clients you helped; and the ideas you believed in. You truly are remarkable and you deserve to be witnessed.
Being an entrepreneur can be lonely and competitive and like we’re always trying to out do ourselves. It’s important to pause long enough to hold up a mirror to our accomplishments –big and small– and remember that they matter. Thank you for taking the time to be a witness to your own journey–and to mine!
Over to you
I would LOVE for you to share an achievement you’re proud of. What can we celebrate with you?
And.. we’ve also SOLD OUT of our signature I’m The Boss Of Me tee already! Superrr exciting.
