Frankly, resources are helpful!
I’ve had some lower income months lately. Right away, I started feeling like an imposter. I do not have all the answers. Those shiny 40k or 50k months I have enjoyed in the past feel long gone. While it is good to remember that nothing is forever and fortune can be fleeting -- it also can feel like a gut punch.
I know not everyone can pull up their bootstraps. Life is messy and can get in our ways. Illness, day jobs, unsupportive partners, and parenting are just some of the ways dreams can be put on the backburner.
Another way we can end up frustrated when we really want to create something amazing is when we start feeling like the to-do list is so fucking long it will never get done. Where do you even start?
That is how I was feeling while going wide with my books, and even when just deciding on the next project. I don’t want to mess anything else up when things already feel topsy-turvy.
After a few weeks of feeling like chaos was swirling around me, I finally calmed the fuck down and centered myself. How? I stopped listening to noise, asked for help, and dug into what I truly wanted for this season of my life.
What I really want right now is to increase my revenue. My son starts college this fall and we have summer activities that need to be paid for.
To dive into this a bit more deeply, I will give you the number porn I know you all love:
