Story time real fast.
So last year around this time I had this idea to launch some drag and drop Shopify templates to make Shopify easier for consumers and for people who were selling items on Shopify. And I had a business coach at the time, and she basically just shot my idea down. She told me that it would never make me any money, that she had asked a few shop owners if they would use something like this, and that the market just really didn’t need that, and I didn’t need to be putting all my efforts and my money into creating something like this. And it really, REALLY gutted me. But then, just because of how I am, I did not listen to her and I did it anyway. And this is the biggest year I have ever had, and I’ve helped more business owners than I ever have before.
So I wanted to take just a second to tell you that whatever you’re dreaming of, do it. Whatever you’re scared of, do it. Ignore the haters, yes, but also it’s totally okay to ignore the people who you love and adore and admire and respect. Because they don’t know you like you know you. They don’t feel the drive in your heart. They don’t have YOUR intuition. Only you can really know and choose what feels exactly right to you. The stats don’t matter, because they haven’t seen YOU. But they will. So let yourself feel that fear, but then stand up and DO IT ANYWAY.
I’m just so grateful for my own intuition and the fact that we can do whatever we want to do, no matter what anyone else is telling us.
