Making the leap from a traditional professional to a soul-led business owner in the eyes of many is quite the fall from grace. This has been something I've really had to navigate personally as someone who is a reforming people-pleaser and who has peer rejection trauma making it hard for me to process when I'm not accepted.
I've had to learn how to put on my armor to do the things such as show up online, put myself out there in a way that serves my business and say what I do around certain people without my voice waning. I've had to learn how to follow my calling despite the blatant and covert criticism I've received from others and from the internal dialogue that has had me question time and time again if I should continue.
I've watched female coaches who work mostly in a masculine coaching construct praised within traditional business circles, seen as being a legit business - and that's largely by other women btw! Yet on the contrary, I've been ignored when opportunities presented themselves with said friends even working the room to ensure that I'm denied of opportunities to share my gifts and body of work.
I've had said friends in the patriarchal business world make comments to publicly belittle and patronise me about my qualifications and one even implying that compared to traditional professions that I have plenty of time on my hands to fluff around online. (insert eye roll!)
I've had to overcome the internal turmoil that my work isn't always accepted but it's my calling and that by not following this calling Im not living in alignment with my deepest desires. This has been a hard one for me and I'm going to be completely honest and say that it's still a work in progress.
If you’re feeling conflicted about making the leap into the next phase of what you want, it’s likely that very few people will really back you. Sorry if that's a #spoileralert but I'm also guessing that you've likely already come to know this to be true.
But don’t let that stop you.
Don’t take it as a sign that you won’t succeed or that this isn’t for you. You have to back you first and foremost.
Here are my best tips for following your calling despite the internal and external critics...
