It's been an interesting week without my blog, Facebook page and Instagram account being live. Last week I made the decision to close down these platforms because I was feeling overwhelmed by the pressure to show up.
This pressure of course, was only brought upon by myself.
With my paint company, and trying to build a coaching business, I was feeling like it was all too much, and it was. However, what I did't know, was that I would really miss sharing my stuff. I really, really missed it.
So, I'm back! But this time, I'm doing it for (a) the pleasure of doing it, and (b) in the hope that it inspires others, not to grow as a business (at this stage).
We Don't Know What We Don't Know
Of course we don't. We have to be willing to try things to find out what we like and what we do not like. In this, we also need to be willing to be judged, criticised and to feel a bit silly, as I do right now.
Anyone who has been following me for a while knows that I change my mind, and that I'm figuring this whole thing out as I go; like we all are in our lives. The key for me though, is to remind myself why I'm doing this, and that I love it, and that is what brings me back time and time again.
It's also what helps me to try new things. Do I really want to be doing one thing for the rest of my days (in life and in business)? Heck, no! I want to live my life. I want to have new experiences. And, I want to put fear aside so I can achieve both of those.
Keep an eye out for my next blog post where I'll be talking about making my life list having reflected on all of the things I'd really love to do.
Hi, I'm Kathryn.
I'm so incredibly grateful for my clients and followers, and the opportunity they give me to share what I know about starting a business.
