What if it doesn’t work? What if it does work? No, it’s not going to work.
Struggling in silence.

I share because I want you to know that it’s totally normal and that you don’t have to do it alone!!
It was hard for me to ask for help in the beginning because I thought it meant I had failed completely.

There are so many ways to get help- please don’t make it even harder for yourself.
Do you want things done BY you alone?
Think podcasts, books, articles/blogs, videos, pre-recorded online courses, etc.
Do you want things done WITH you?
Think live workshops, classes, group programs, coaching, etc.
Do you want things done FOR you?
Think templates, outsourcing, consultants, coaching* (more applicable to certain topics), etc.

P.S. if you are hitting a wall and want some books or resources, DM me and I’m happy to
