So I'm jogging in the mountains, back in 2009. Thinking about yet another great call with my business mentor.

My business was just getting off the ground, but I knew enough to have a mentor, to make things work faster, more smoothly and to have a heck of a lot more fun than just doing it on my own.

Even though my business was brand new, and I was terrified I couldn’t keep affording her, I signed up with her anyway.

It had been almost three weeks since I made the payment to her, so as my feet hit the trail, I’m thinking about that too - except something’s different this time. I’m not thinking about money things in the usual old way.

My usual way of thinking was:

*OMG!!!!! she charges $1,100 USD per month. More than my rent. I took a chance, put it on my credit card. It’s almost three weeks later now and I haven’t paid it back. HOW THE HECK AM I GOING TO MAKE THAT PLUS MY RENT IN JUST UNDER TWO WEEKS??!! My paycheck for the entire month was that much, and I’m supposed to make this much in under a few weeks?

We talked once a week, but she was available on email all the time for me. Normally, I would just start typing my worries away. I would email her again. Tell her of my panic. Tell her I loved our calls, I just didn’t know what to do next to make sure I make enough money.

But something was different today … just two weeks working with her and my thinking was changing.

Not only was I less worried about money, even with money due dates looming, I felt a new power within me.

I even jogged further than normal that day, pausing only to screech with JOY (seriously, I couldn’t help it, out loud!) because I had at last figured things out:

1) Worry does nothing.

2) I knew what it took now, to make it - so putting worry aside and just doing it, would literally guarantee successful results.

3) Mentoring changes everything!

My mindset, my bullshit from the past, was being up-leveled, right? It was no longer an excuse. I was aiming for success and I had the support I needed to get successful.

And the one thing I couldn't figure out as a brand new coach back in 2009, I could not figure this out for the life of me, was how do I make money when I'm brand new?

Like, how do I support myself when I'm brand new?

So she taught me a many number of things, which I can't do justice explaining or describing in a blog post, but I can tell you that, without her, I wouldn't have fast-tracked and by-passed the old B.S in my brain that would once-upon-a-time knock me down and freeze me in my tracks from taking the very action that makes me successful now.

I would have stopped jogging to rush home and type that worrying email, before I received high level mentoring.

I would have then numbed out with some Netflix, white-knuckling life until she responded before receiving high level mentoring.

AND before receiving that high level mentoring, I would have literally done *none* (zero, zip) of the actions I know now are the keys to creating my success today!

It all clicked one day it just all clicked and I was like, bam, THIS SUCCESS THING IS POSSIBLE.

It's possible for me.


I can do it and this is how I can do it.

She showed me exactly how.


Fast forward to today, nearly a decade later, there have been many more mentors since - I’ve put myself in rooms with some of the best minds on the planet - so that high level thinking is anchored in deep within me.

I started out not knowing what the heck to do and just worrying my way into holes that never got me anywhere.

But I kept taking big leaps, scary as they were, over and over and over and over again.

I stayed the course.

Now I know what to do, and I do it.

Will you?

Learn what to do, then do it?

PS. I created Bosses in Pajamas for business women to get an experience of this high level mentoring with me, at the fraction of the cost of what I paid that mentor back then. It’s a group coaching mastermind program, but you get 1:1 time with me via phone or internet video (your choice) and I stay on the call with you until ALL of your questions are answered. That’s my commitment to you! These calls happen twice every month, *PLUS* there are bonus audio trainings emailed to you straight after you join. To feel this support, and fast-track your success like nothing else can, check out ALL THE DETAILS of my incredible community membership by clicking here now
