Don’t be discouraged.

I often hear from my clients that they are discouraged or growing antsy by the traffic they’re receiving or how long it is taking for them to build their community. If you’re feeling this way as well I will tell you the same thing I tell them: Don’t be discouraged!

There will be a lot of bumps in the road on the way to success; you may spend more money than you’d like, you may not realize everything you need to have in place legally before you begin, you may be experiencing little to no traffic to your website, and so on. There is a lot to consider when you first start your business or when you first begin your marketing campaigns, but don’t let it discourage you!

Regardless of what others may promise or tell you, the process is often not instantaneous. There are a few overnight success stories, but it’s important to note, and put things in perspective, that these stories are not the norm. The majority of successful businesses worked their butts off to get where they are today. They cried, panicked, felt overwhelmed, and experienced a whole slew of emotions before they were finally able to say “I did it!” You will too!

When you begin to feel panic, anxiety, or stress – stop. Just. Stop. Thinking. Easier said than done – I know, but it *can* be done! So stop. Focus on something else for a few moments, take calming breaths, and clear your mind. YES it is going to be hard, but YOU CAN DO IT!
