If it doesn't scare you, the dream isn't big enough.

Lately I've gotten a lot of private messages and questions about how I started my biz, speaking, etc and I think I've narrowed it down to these 3 things:

1. Don't deny your heart. When you were 5 you were probably doing what you were meant to do forever (insert me being up on the bed entertaining my stuffed animals 24/7) so get clear, look back and accept what comes without any judgement. My crowds are now hospitality professionals and badass women biz owners and I've traded a bed for a stage but it's just as fun and exciting as it was then.

2. If it doesn't scare you, the dream isn't big enough, because scared is just excitement if your mind is in the right place. If you do the things that scare you, on the other side of the excitement and hard work,you will come out victorious and thinking "I'm so glad I didn't quit because of stupid fear!!!"

3. You're never gonna be 100% ready and there's always going to be a million reasons or excuses you could create, but if you don't move forward you will never get the life you want, get to do the things you want and be the best version of yourself that you and the world deserve to have.

I don't have all the answers, but I figured sharing some of these may help someone out there. Do you have any guiding advice for folks looking for a new business or career change?
