This is the first post in a series I'm creating about this...
What energy does it take to build a business?
The kind of business built on your dreams-
Where you live out a calling?️
This month marks the anniversary of when I first opened the doors to Sun Tree Healing Arts!
It was January 2017.
A room rented in Chandler.
Newly relocated to Arizona.
Knowing no one.
Just out of medical school.
And I. Was. Thrilled.
And legitimately terrified. I actually applied to be a cashier somewhere (I didn't take it) because I was so afraid of going broke (I didn't).
My rent was $725/mo!
I had never paid that to live somewhere before, let alone for a single room for a business!
...in a city I didn't know.
...running a business, which I had never done.
...practicing on my own for the first time.
-I spent countless hours, days at a time, working on my website, playing with design.
-I scoured the internet for networking options (social media wasn't on my radar yet).
-I (kind of) agonized over my business systems, software options, how to do it all in a streamlined way. (perfectionist problems)
-I used all of my savings $ and then some to buy furniture and decor and supplies.
…The first kind of energy that built my business was unbridled passion and conviction.
I knew nothing about running a business, but I *knew* I was meant for what I was doing.
I was ceaselessly devoted.
But, that was just the beginning. I'll share what I had to shift into in the next post.
(What was it like for you when you first started something new that relied on you *completely* in order to take off?)
I am now working with a small number of clients in my Business + Prosperity mentorship. It’s my best work to date! If you're reading this in real time, learn more here.
