3 Major Lessons I've Learned In The Last 6 Months


Some of you may, or may not know that I have recently launched my social media consultancy business. The run-up to it has been filled with self-doubt and stress, support and loads of other emotions. 

This was a big deal for me and my biggest weakness is the fact that I doubt myself and my ability so much. The first client I acquired was actually a colleague and he really drums it to me every day that I need to believe in myself. 

I have learned some major lessons over the last six months and I'm sure that as my business grows I will continue to learn more. 

Here are three of the biggest life lessons I have learned in the last six months:

Be around people who believe in you. 
I really can't stress this enough, when you don't believe in yourself sometimes you need people around you who are going to lift you up and let you know how good you are at what you do. And even if you feel you don't have what it takes to do something have people around who believe in you. That extra support really motivates you and could be the reason you go for your dreams or forfeit them. 

Feel the fear and do it anyway. 
It is so easy to talk yourself out of doing something. The truth is you don't grow doing the things you have always done. Growth happens outside of your comfort zone, so when you are feeling scared about a new venture or an idea, fight it and do what you got to do! 
Make sure you are often doing things that push you outside of your comfort zone too, you'll find out so much about yourself. 

Learn to say no. 
This is something I need to put into action myself. Spreading yourself too thin can be detrimental to your mental health and your life, in general, to be honest. It is so easy to accept every proposal that comes your way but before you say yes, think about your time, it is important. 
Making money and making clients happy is definitely important but what is more important is your sanity and having a good quality of life. Say no, sometimes.
