When is the last time you put yourself out there for the world to see? When’s the last time you did something so far outside your comfort zone that you wanted to pee your pants and skip town for awhile? (Okay, maybe that’s my dramatic side coming out but you get the picture :))
The scariest moment in my life so far, besides seeing both my twins jump in deep water and having to do a fully clothed rescue whilst on vacation this summer, has been decided to start a YouTube Channel after 7 LONG years of debating it.
7 years? Really?
Yes, 7 years. It took me 7 years to finally get the courage or the balls or the IDGAF attitude to put my plans into action.
You see, I used to be completely terrified of putting myself out there. I was scared of what people would think. I was scared of how awkward I would seem on camera. I knew the camera would bring out every flaw, every imperfection and don’t even get me started on the sound of my voice on video. Eww. Those stupid thoughts kept me stuck for close to a decade.
So what was the tipping point? What made me decide to finally take the leap?
Someone challenged me to stretch myself. Like, the elusive Triple Dog Dare that you just can’t pass up.
To be honest, it was more like this Amazing, Smart, Supportive group of women that challenged me to step outside my comfort zone and TAKE ACTION.
You wanna know more? Good, cuz I’m gonna tell ya….
This month, I’m SO excited to be participating in the Stretch Yourself Challenge hosted my my friend and mentor Kelly McCausey. This is the 10th Anniversary of the challenge and my fourth time being a part of it.
So, what is the Stretch Yourself Challenge All About?
To sum it up, this challenge is a way for you to level up in your business, no matter what stage you’re currently at. You have the opportunity to choose between 15 different challenges that will stretch you outside your comfort zone while helping you build your business at the same time. Win-win, right??
Stretching looks different for everyone.
You can choose to:
Start a YouTube Channel
Attend a Live Event
Make an Intentional Connection
Promote Your Expertise
Do a FB Live Series
So Much More…..
For example, a Veteran YouTuber is not gonna be intimidated by doing a video and posting it for the world to see but they may be scared to death to reach out to someone they admire and ask for an interview.
Someone who is used to working behind the scenes and only having contact with people online, may be intimidated to attend a live, in person event.
That’s what’s great about the Stretch Yourself Challenge…..It pushes you at whatever level you’re at. And did I mention the supportive group that will guide you and love you on the whole way??
Guys…this is a no brainer.
We don’t have a whole lot of time because the doors close at midnight tonight, but I would be over the moon excited fi you would join me on this stretching journey and see where it takes you and your business.
There will be live calls every week and a supportive community at your fingertips every step of the way, not to mention a kickass guidebook that will explain everything in intricate detail.
Quit hiding behind your fear! Join the Stretch Yourself Challenge now and show the world how you can shine! 🙂
