Mindset Shift To Scale Past 6 Figures For Entrepreneurial Success #1: YOU ARE ENOUGH & Imposter Syndrome is Just Your Limiting Beliefs Showing Up
This is a topic we will talk about forever, because everytime you reach a new height in your business or do something new in general, you WILL face imposter syndrome problems, unless you’re a magical unicorn. I have an entire blog post where I go in depth on how to overcome imposter syndrome so that when these moments strike you have the tools to get past it quicker. Read the full blog post here.
One of the biggest mindset shifts we need to make as entrepreneurs is realizing we are enough just the way we are. It’s SO easy to look at other successful entrepreneurs and start comparing yourself in every area. Remember, these entrepreneurs most likely are…
Only sharing the highlight reel (unless they’re awesome and sharing the real shit) or
Have been doing this WAY longer than you
I’ve heard SO many entrepreneurial success stories, and every single one of them (including myself!) says to put your blinders on. Stop paying attention to what everyone else is doing, and if you find someone in particular making you feel less than (even if you like them and they’re providing value), UNFOLLOW them or “Mute” them on Instagram. If seeing their success is making you paralyzed and feeling like you’re not enough, then it’s not worth it to see what they’re doing. There might be a point where you can look at their success and get INSPIRED, but until that moment happens, unfollow them. And if I’m one of those peeps to you, I take zero offence–I want you to do your best, and if that means unfollowing me or anyone else you might look up to-so be it.
Put your blinders on.
This could be an entire message on it’s own, but to go along with “you are enough”, remember you are also “worth it.” You are worth having the success you’re going to have. You are worth gaining clients that you love working with. And most importantly you are worth INVESTING in yourself and your business. I promise you, if you invest in yourself, whether it’s going to a personal development seminar or event or in a program or a coach, you will UP LEVEL your life and your business. Hands down. EVERY SINGLE investment I’ve made has been worth it–even if it didn’t turn out to be exactly what I thought it would be, I did gleam some insight in some way in each investment that made me better off because of it.

Mindset Shift To Scale Past 6 Figures For Entrepreneurial Success #2: Failures are Just Learning Experiences...Nothing More.
How do I create a six figure salary as an online coach or female entrepreneur in general? And while it’s not a sexy answer..my answer simply is…
YOU FAIL. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
You could have the best laid strategy in the world, do everything the “right way”, and still have launches that fall short of what you wanted or predicted, or people say no to your coaching when you thought they were a PERFECT fit. It’s going to happen.
And the ONLY way you get to that 6 figure and above mark is by failing a SHIT TON. Again, like I said in point 1, so many entrepreneurs don’t share their FAILURES. They only share what has gone WELL.
So here a few failures I’ve had:
*Barely increased my income AT ALL in my first year and a half in my Network Marketing business
*Had my Network Marketing income cut in HALF after hitting above 6 figures #scaryAF
*Launched a macro mini course that got MAYBE 3 sales…#wompwomp
*Launched my coaching to CRICKETS the first time I forayed into my own health + fitness biz outside of my Network Marketing company
And the list goes on. There are too many to list. But each one taught me something, and I became stronger because of it. I learned what TO DO and what NOT TO DO after each of these experiences.
Then I tweaked, pivoted, and had a better go around the second time.
My recent launch of my Client Attraction University program sold out in THREE DAYS. I was FLOORED. But this wasn’t my first launch. I had done this before with less than stellar results. SO…I had learned what TO do and NOT to do, and even then, like I said above, there will be times things don’t turn out the way you hoped because of unforeseen circumstances.
If you can attack each perceived “failure” as a true learning experience, and really look at it as a detective–what worked well, what didn’t, what do we have to tweak for next time?
Then you will go into each launch with a more confident and powerful mindset, not putting SO much pressure on yourself to be perfect, knowing that failure is literally AN ESSENTIAL STEP to success.
Mindset Shift To Scale Past 6 Figures For Entrepreneurial Success #3: Consistency + Time is the Secret Sauce
This goes in line with entrepreneurial success mindset shift #2, but telling yourself over and over again that as long as you STICK WITH IT long enough, you WILL have success is CRUCIAL.
The secret to success….
Consistency + Time = SUCCESS
It’s really that sexy 😉
But truly…one of the things I ALWAYS told my team when i was in Network Marketing was “the secret to success is doing this EVERY SINGLE DAY.” If your biz tasks include liking and commenting on people’s accounts, DM’ing 10+ people a day to build relationships, writing content daily, doing market research, etc, then you WILL have success if you do these things DAILY. It’s when you do it for a week or two and expect the skies to open up that people mistake for “consistency.” I mean, doing those things everyday for MONTHS and then YEARS. THAT’S consistency baby.
And if you think about it, if you bust your butt and do these things consistently for a YEAR and can build a kick-ass 6 fig biz because of it…wouldn’t you think it was worth it? When you consider what a YEAR of your life is like? A YEAR. It’s NUTS.
Steps to Make Yourself Consistent
So right now, write down a list of tasks you know you need to do daily and weekly in your business to have success.
Then schedule these tasks into your google calendar. LITERALLY put it in google with the specific task you’re doing so you sit down to work and know EXACTLY what you’re going to do
Hire a coach or join a group coaching program or accountability group. If you can’t invest in yourself right now, at least join a free entrepreneur group (my #prettyawkward one is pretty great–and you can join here) and get an accountability partner in that group. Accountability is CRUCIAL when it comes to making hard and long-term changes in your life.
