It’s all about starting. Starting something. Doing something. Being unafraid of being imperfect. Being brave. Acknowledging that you have something pretty special to offer the world and just going for it boots and all.

We live in a constant state of fear and uncertainty within our own minds and it is this fear that stops us short of achieving our greatest life. The life you want and deserve is literally one step away. And that step is starting.
Let me tell you what I mean by starting
It’s allowing yourself to be imperfect. It’s giving yourself permission to create in the cracks. It’s about saying to yourself that it’s ok to not have it ALLLL figured out before you introduce your gifts to the world. I wanna tell you something…. no-one has it all figured out! absolutely no-one.
Life is a journey and we often forget that when we place unrealistic expectations on ourselves to be at a certain point in our lives. Often forgetting that its tiny steps that lead to greatness. Its these tiny steps that when you look back have created that business, have given you the life or the family you want, that have lead you to your career passion or mastery.

This grew to two full seasonal lines and agents in 4 countries.
