Yes, I just bought these shoes. I used to have these shoes up until a few weeks ago. My husband bought me these exact same shoes for my birthday three years ago. It was love at first sight and I proceeded to wear them everywhere and to everything. I wore them so much that the soft leather had worn off around the toe area but I didn’t care. They felt amazing and looked great with everything. They were my go-to shoes. But calamity ensued a few weeks ago, when I accidentally brushed my foot against a door and the medallion popped off on the left shoe.

Immediate sadness commenced.

I was like, what do I do now? My favorite shoes are gone. I mean, I can’t walk around wearing these shoes when one had the medallion and the other doesn’t. I briefly thought I should just order another pair. But I hesitated. Because I had just signed up and paid for business coaching.

Yes, I am being coached right now for my business. It’s a group of women who are focusing on up-leveling their business in 2019. Cuz I got dreams and goals for my business, too! And personally, I work really well with a coach because it keeps me accountable for putting the work in to reach my goals.

So, I had to pay for this coaching and it was not cheap! But the way I see it, my business, my dreams and the goals that I have for us (my family) are worth it. My coach is amazing and she charges her worth. So I didn’t wanna replace my shoes just yet. Because in all honesty, I didn’t need a new pair of shoes. I just wanted them.

Then something interesting happened. On the very first coaching session, my coach challenged the group to make $2,000 as quick as possible. I was like, “Huh?! How can I make $2K just like that?!” But then my coach started showing us ways to make “manifest the money”. For me, I was told to put my eCourses out there more prominently and advertise my tech skills more. Also, I had a course that I hadn’t finished yet and my coach was just like, “Finish it and put it out for sale tomorrow.” I was like, “No way!” I hemmed and hawed about being able to do it but guess what…. I did it. And not only did I complete my course, I won the challenge by making $2K in one week.

How did I make $2,000 in 7 days, you ask…

An old client contacted me about redesigning her blog and paid me $300.

I created a blog for a new client for $700

I contacted a client that owed me money for work done the previous year. They paid me $1,000.

In 7 days, I had achieved that goal I didn’t think I could do. Boom! The power of coaching. But more importantly, the power of putting yourself out there and taking ACTION.

But how about you? What ways can YOU manifest $2,000 or even $200 in 7 days to pay for the things you want?

How about:

  1. Drive for Uber or Lyft
  2. Get a temporary part-time job (at Starbucks, etc.)
  3. Work extra hours or shifts at your current job.
  4. Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Poshmark or CraigsList
  5. Advertise your skills on Fiverr
  6. Ask for the money that people owe you.

And that’s just off the top of my head. But there is money out there for you. Just go get it!

So, I celebrated my win with my coach she was like, “Great! Now reward yourself!” She asked what I wanted to buy and immediately said I would buy a new pair of my beloved Tory Burch ballet flats.

There you have it. I bought these shoes because I love them so much. But I also bought them as a reward to myself for doing what I thought I couldn’t do. So every time I look lovingly down at my feet when I am wearing these shoes, I will remember that you can challenge yourself to do things that you think you can’t.

If you are trying to start a blog or make money blogging, why not let me help you? As I learned this past week, you can do so much more that you think you can. You can have a blogging business. You CAN do it. We find money for a lot of stuff that we want. Why not invest in yourself, your hopes and dreams.
