Ever feel like you don’t know enough to share your knowledge? Or wonder if anyone would even care or take you seriously if you did? You want to build your business but don’t really want to get a lot of attention? You’d rather be a wallflower than dance. Am I right?
You’re probably wondering how I know so much about you? But, no. That’s me…was me.
I spent a lot of time in the shadows, working behind the scenes of other peoples’ businesses. Watching in awe as they rock their communities wanting desperately to grow my own but feeling too insecure to step out and let my light shine.
Fast forward a few years (and lots of growing pains in between), I’m starting to embrace stretching out of my comfort zone.
This summer I’ve:
All of those things were WAY far out of my comfort zone but stretching myself in uncomfortable ways is key to growth.
I never would’ve been able to do any of that without the guidance and support of a great community of people.
And, guess what – it’s time for another good stretching!
This month I’m participating in the Stretch Yourself Challenge hosted by my friend, Kelly McCausey. It’s is the 10th year anniversary and my 5th year participating.
It’s all about content marketing where you pick one project to complete to upgrade your business.
There are 15 ready made Challenges to choose from such as:
Or you can create your own challenge based on something you want to accomplish.
With all these different challenges to choose from there’s something for everyone, from newbies to veterans, to help grow your reach and build your business.
This year I’ve chosen to Host a Facebook Live Series where I’ll demonstrate designing graphics for my online shop at happyfunsassy.com. This will be fun but definitely a stretch for me since I’ve just recently started exploring “live” sessions. Plus I’ll be filling up my shop with brand new mug and accessory designs. Win/win.
The participants are always high energy, encouraging and so supportive of each other. It’s a place to share progress, wins and struggles. We’re all in this together.
Plus we have active team leaders, Val Selby and Tishia Lee, who jump in to help and stir up a little fun competition to see which team will get the most participation points. I’m on #teamshine.
There are so many gold nugget take aways from participating in the live group calls and getting involved with the community, not to mention growing my business in amazing ways.
Having the Challenge Guide at my fingertips makes it easy to continue growing my reach and stretching even after the Challenge ends.
