I originally did this collaborative blog as a guest post for Kelly McCausey over on Love People and Make Money.
I had just recently appeared as a guest on a podcast called “Your Shining Self”. And, I had a really great time chatting with the host Tish Lee. The whole conversation had me thinking about the issue of visibility, or the lack of visibility. Well, actually, that’s something I think about a lot because I’m usually helping clients with that exact issue.
Anyway, the host Tish, and I were talking about visibility and something Tish said stuck with me. She said, and I’m paraphrasing a little here, that usually when people want to talk about building a successful business they want to talk about getting from point A to point B. But none of that matters if we don’t deal with the in between.
I couldn’t have agreed more. The A to B stuff is important. People just don’t usually think about the fact that there’s SPACE in between point A and point B. But, that in between, is the part where the person, hasn’t yet become the person that can own the business, they want to have. That’s the part where they need to first deal with their stuff. You know, the stuff I’m talking about. It’s self-doubt and the feelings of unworthiness. It’s the stories they tell themselves that keep them afraid and playing small.
In the article I look back a little on my own journey. And, I ask six other brave women if they would share how they deal with it, or what advice they would give to someone else dealing with it.
