Today was a first.
TODAY was the first day that I have ever hired help to care for Cooper for a few hours as I parked myself at a local Starbucks and worked my business. Sitting at the table with my coffee, I was overcome with a rare feeling of true accomplishment.
I had told myself one year ago that I was going to build my business from our kitchen counter while Cooper napped and whenever I reach that 6-figure/year mark, I would then allow myself to invest in a little help.
So this happened. And now I’m sitting here in this Starbucks and I’m not even quite sure what to think. You see, we don’t have family in Las Vegas and so it’s just always been Cooper and I each day. Sure we hire babysitters for our date nights, but I’ve never quite felt “worthy” of hiring someone to help watch Cooper for a handful of hours once a week so that I could work on my business away from the kitchen counter. 😉
Today I realize that I am just an average woman who had a vision that PULLED her as opposed to something that pushed her. And accomplishing just a tiny step of that vision feels so rewarding…there are no words.
For the past year I’ve been out of bed before 5:30am to work before Cooper gets up + worked during his nap time + and then a little more work once he has gone to bed. But being his mom was and will always will be my #1 job. My amazing team of coaches and my awesome challengers are my passion.
And no…the idea of a baseball hat was NOT a part of this vision. But my boss declared today a “Casual Tuesday” so I went with it! LOL! Perks of being your own boss…;)
So this post is just a reminder to check-in with YOUR vision. What do you want to experience/feel/create exactly one year from now? And is what you are doing TODAY moving you any closer to making that a reality?! #lifeisnow #starttoday 😉
