3 Dirty Little Secrets of Women Entrepreneurs

As women entrepreneurs, we have a few dirty little secrets.

Nobody wants to talk about these, but they can stop us from following our bliss and shining our unique light in the world.

And that’s not okay with me!

Let’s bring these secrets out in the open and talk about what to do instead…

Dirty Secret #1: Women entrepreneurs compare themselves to others

When you compare your BACKSTAGE (dark, filled with trip wires and boxes) to their FRONTSTAGE (good lighting, bouquets of flowers, velvet curtains), what are you doing? Getting stuck in the mind trap…

I’m not good enough.

When you show up with that thought running in your mind, it’s client and money repellent.

DO THIS INSTEAD >>

Break the addictive habit of looking at everyone else’s websites, Facebook pages, and events. Remember, the qualities you admire in someone else are simply reflections of those same strengths inside you.

 

Dirty Secret #2: Women Entrepreneurs are Tempted to Sell Their Souls

Have you ever thought this as you’re talking to a prospective client…

What can I say to convince them I’m worth what I charge?

Whoa, baby! This is a slippery slope. Suddenly you’re behaving like someone you’re definitely not: a salesy people-pleaser.

DO THIS INSTEAD >>

The day before you speak with a prospective client, imagine your higher self sitting down for tea with their higher self. Ask them what will support their highest good and greatest joy. Ask them what they need to hear from you. Then, right before you speak with the person, see them as an angel just about to spread their wings.

 

Dirty Secret #3: Women Entrepreneurs Second-Guess Their Audience

When you sit down to work, do you ever think…

What is “the market” looking for?

DO THIS INSTEAD >>

Write and speak about what you find compelling. Even if it makes some people mad or they unsubscribe or unfriend you. Your authentic voice and ideas are really the only thing you have to offer. People are starved for it. This is the best part of yourself, where your finest and truest work comes from.

 

Drop Truth bombs.

Drop Love bombs.

That’s how you attract your true tribe – when you bring your unique voice and message.

Open your heart.

Give us what you’ve got.

Own your greatness.

Help nudge humanity a little farther along its path to awakening.

Love,

Lee
