WHAT DO I DO?
Updated: Oct 20, 2019
I help people achieve their goals. That's what I do.
But before I could do that, I had to help myself.
All my life I have lived in the shadow of others. I have suffered with low self-esteem, lack of confidence, social anxiety and that is just to name a few! To be honest I allowed that to happen. The problem with being laid back is you get lazy. Sometimes the simple thing to do is nod and agree and let others take the lead.
The reason really was because I had no goal or direction. I did not know who I was, what I wanted to do, let alone believe in what I could do. Then suddenly after becoming a mother it all became so clear. It was like a thunderbolt hitting me. And I couldn't switch off.
"I want to build a fitness business"
A business that I was 100% passionate about. A business that was not just about hitting the figures, earning the money, but something I could bounce out of bed for and enjoy.
Then the doubts crept in. Was I too old? I was not qualified. Everyone is doing it. Why me?
I had a great job, why should I take on a challenge like this. Why not take the easy road and just carry-on as I had. What about Neil and my baby boy. It was all happening at the same time. No the wrong time, my son was only a year old. But I knew I did not have time on my side. I knew if this was the path I wanted to take then I had to act fast and do it now.
So here I am building this business. My own little empire. Thinking, planning, engaging. It's not about the money. If it was I would have given up by now. Do you know what it really is all about? It's about helping others whilst investing in myself and my future happiness.
So I started. I jumped out of my comfort zone and straight into the fire....I got certified as a PT, started up a Bootcamp and I have never been happier and have just entered my second year as a Personal Trainer. I earn little in comparison to my old job, but I love every minute of it and you know what, I am helping people. How great is that! That is what I truly love.
And THAT is what I do.
