I’ve always been a pretty open person. For the most part, if you ask me I will tell you. I have no problems sharing my who, what, when and wheres. That is until recently. Ever since I started #NRJ I have learned to keep my big mouth shut. People mean well, I swear to goodness they do. But since I’ve started this blogging/ entrepreneur journey I’ve learned that everybody and their momma has a not so welcomed opinion and they have no problems sharing it with you.
Why would you want to start a business? This economy still sucks! And you didn’t even go to school for business anyway!
A blog? People don’t even read anymore!
You want to help inspire women? Girl Bye! You ain’t Oprah!
That’s ALOT to hear right?!? Especially if you’re a little scared and insecure about the leap of faith you are trying to take in your life in the first place. Here’s the thing, I don’t believe that all people are trying to hate on your glow up. I think most of the people in your life love you very much and want the best for you; they’re just afraid. They don’t want you to fail, get hurt or see you make costly mistakes. So out of fear they will try to convince you to put your dreams back to sleep. See what I did there? 😜
Take a peek at this video to learn how I deal with the naysayers, where I do find support, and how I make major moves without ever announcing them prematurely!
