Your girl is all grown up and going to the Big City!🍎
I set two goals at the beginning of 2019 – one was to hire help for shows, and the other, scary goal was to register for National Stationery Show (NSS), which is the biggest stationery trade show in the U.S. 😱
I’m proud to say I was able to accomplish both goals 💪🏼 and this week I’m flying to NY to exhibit at NSS!
Maybe you do this, too, but I tend to minimize my accomplishments.
When I reach a goal or a milestone, I think to myself, “Anyone can do that. It wasn’t a big deal. I was lucky. I haven’t really done anything yet.”
But THIS one was hard to ignore.
Sure, I do have that little voice that tells me that you’re not really there yet. Things can go wrong. Who knows, you may come home with nothing to show for.
It was all a big waste of time and money. Who do you think YOU are? You don’t belong on the big stage.
But, I’m patting myself on the back for doing it!
Just being able to save up for the show is in and of itself a huge accomplishment for me. And I know I’ll learn a ton from this experience.
If you’d asked me two years ago if I’d even considered going to the show, I’d had a nervous laugh and given you a vague “no” answer.
Well, I still have a nervous laugh 😬 but I’m going anyhow.
See, that’s the thing. If my business journey has taught me anything, it’s that you don’t have to know everything to start something new.
You are good enough to start now.
You’re capable of much more than you think. You’ve survived all of your worst case scenarios thus far. You’re resilient. You’re resourceful. Take one step at a time!!!
So I take my own advice to heart today. Courage over perfection. I’m taking lots of deep breathes as I tackle my scary goal this week!
Follow me on Facebook or Instagram if you haven’t already – I’ll be posting pics from my NY trip there!
Thank you for your support and encouragement always. It’s YOU who give me the courage to keep going for my dreams.
