There have been times in the past when I literally felt like I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I know you have been there too.

I started out knowing I needed to get my comfortable + cute self out of my dead end day job. I need to create a business that would allow me to do what I love and be at home with my daughter. The quickest route there was the most obvious at first, my Etsy shop. But that minor passion soon led to my major passion…the big kahuna, coaching. Did I know what I was doing? Did I have a big plan on how it was all going to happen? No.

So what is the big secret? How have I managed to move from a successful Etsy Shop to a coaching business all in one year when I felt like I didn’t have a clue what I was doing?

Be unapologetic {to yourself} when you break your own rules

When you start out you will have somewhat of a picture of where you want your business to go. You may have a business plan neatly typed out or you may have a vision board or a mind map…either way you will want to schedule some time for rule breaking.

When you break your own rules whether it’s; blogging less, tweeting more, spending more or less money on your business, buying that techie gadget you may not have needed or taking a month off do not apologize to yourself or take yourself on an excursion on guilt highway.

Pump the brakes, honey

I had to. I would drive myself crazy when my tagline wasn’t just right or when I decided to change my domain name. Every month was different and when I let go, broke some rules and felt good about it, my business came together one day at a time.

Feeling like you don’t have a clue about what you are doing is part of the journey. When you embrace it + love on it you open yourself up to all of the possibilities of what your business (and heck) your life can be.

So what is my advice for you and your business?

Stop feeling:

  • Guilty
  • Stupid
  • Sorry

Start feeling:

  • Smart
  • Purposed
  • Sure

There will never be another you creating the business you are creating. You have an opportunity to create something that no one else ever has…so do it and don’t apologize when you don’t have a clue what you are doing.

No one ever really does.

So tell me…what has you feeling clueless lately? I’m all ears in the comments below.
