Every time I do a consultation with a potential client, I ask one big question:
“What would it mean to you to make $5,000 a month consistently?”
Every single time she pauses, catches her breath, and says to me: “It would mean everything.”
It would mean…
— my husband wouldn’t have to work two jobs.
— my son could go to a private school.
— I could pay for my daughter to do dance competitions.
— I could leave my job and focus only on my business
— I could be more present with my kids.
— That I finally have a real business and my husband will take me seriously.
Over the last few years of working with women to scale their businesses, I have found that we each have deeply personal reasons that we want to make $5,000 a month consistently. Reasons that we that feel scary to talk about. Reasons that make us catch our breath before we will admit them to another person.
My reason behind wanting to make $5,000 a month consistently?
I knew once I did I could file for divorce.
I know. Shock and awe right?
But it’s also the truth. My marriage was troubled and toxic for several years. I have 0 desire to throw my ex-husband under the bus. He is still the father of my kids and I am hopeful that he and I can remain friends for their sakes’.
But if I am being honest, the damage that was being done to me inside the marriage held me back for a lot of years. The fighting made me exhausted which made it hard to parent and work. The daily criticism chipped away at my self-esteem. The neglect made me feel worthless.
It was unhealthy and sad and exhausting. Last August I realized I’d had enough and I couldn’t do it anymore. I wanted better for me, I wanted better for my kids. So I asked for a divorce.
Was I scared? Oh absolutely 100%. My ex-husband was the breadwinner. I was on his health insurance before we were even married. How was I going to support 3 kids and myself?
Ah I still feel my fear from a year ago.
The thing about me though, and the way God made me, is that once I make a decision, I do it with my whole heart. I figure it out. It’s what I do.
The first step in kicking the financial fear in the face? Knowing my numbers. What would it take for me to support my kids and myself every single month?
No small feat by any means, but I knew I could do it.
That $5,000 was more than just money. It symbolized freedom for me. Freedom to be me. Freedom to parent the way I believe is best. Freedom to heal.
Last September, I joined a coaching program for coaches. I learned and relearned how to give value, make offers, and sign new clients.
I talked to women nearly everyday and told them I am a Business Coach.
I did my thought work every single day and created three beliefs in myself:
- I know I can help women make $5,000 a month.
- I know you are 100% capable of making $5,000 a month.
- I know that I am the coach that will help you get there without a shadow of a doubt.
Those three beliefs propelled me forward every day. They motivated me when it got hard. Whenever I felt myself not believing, I journaled until I was back in complete belief.
Guess what happened?
You know 😉
Yup, I scaled my business to $5,000 a month in only 5 months.
All because I did the work.
What work did I do?
- A time management plan that helped me see how many women I could coach based on my kids’ schedule and mine.
- An income plan. I knew exactly how many women I needed to talk to everyday to create consults to create clients.
- Three beliefs that helped me when imposter syndrome would creep up.
- Emails and social media posts that gave value and served my audience. And I did it consistently.
- I honed my sales skills. I love selling and don’t think it’s icky. Sales helps people become the best versions of themselves.
My divorce was final at the beginning of July. I won’t pretend it’s been easy even though it was my decision to make. There has been a lot of grief and sadness that comes up that can have me hiding in bed. Divorce is sad and hard and it’s messy.
But for me it’s also been freeing. I no longer feel the weight of a toxic marriage that was holding both of us back.
