I'm not like the other "boutique" pages and I was beating myself up over it.
"ugh...I should have better photos"
"ugh...don't post that, it's too personal"
"I should do my hair & makeup before I hop on there"
"Change my business idea AGAIN?"
"Can people see through me? See that I'm winging it?"
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Honestly, these thoughts were holding me back. BIG TIME!
Always worrying if the post was perfect. Fixing my captions a 100 times. Will this offend anyone? Am I being TOO much? Not enough? FUCK. It was draining the life out of me.
What a rollercoaster of emotions. Let me just say this ain't no easy gig. A huge round of applause to all the entrepreneur's killing it and making it look like a piece of cake. While i'm over here breaking out, pulling out my hair, haven't showered since...ummm...huh...I don't know, and my diet is coffee and dates smothered in PB. OH and a stress cold sore- did you guys know those are a thing?!?! LIKE WTF!!!
I promised myself when I started this that I would be as open and honest as I possibly could. That I would lead with authenticity...
