Did you know that I thought about creating Blacksburg Belle for over six months before I ever began putting the site together?
Yep, I hang my head in shame. It’s true.
I thought I needed to have my act completely together before launching this site.
I thought I needed: a $3500 website design budget, a DSLR camera, a better understanding of social media, knowledge of SEO, an accountant, etc.
Guess what? I didn’t have ANY of those things when I launched.
After months and months of contemplation, I realized that I had two choices: 1. Wait until I had everything I wanted such as professional web design for my site which could mean waiting for another year before beginning. 2. Launch before I was ready and learn as I went, so I actually build a business instead of just thinking about building this business.
While building the site and during the first couple of months, I had doubts. My inner critic said, “Yo dumb dumb…you should have waited until you actually knew what you were freaking doing. You should have done some more research. You should have had a bigger budget.”
Thank goodness I didn’t listen to that inner critic a second longer. To this day, my biggest regret is not starting sooner.
Even though I didn’t think I was ready, I was.
With my story in mind, watch today’s video, because I want to help you move from the “thinking phase” into the “action phase” so that you’re not wondering how this year flew by and why you didn’t do more when January 1st creeps up on you.
What are you waiting for? Are you committed to taking action NOW? If so, let me know in the comments below.
