Kalm's Thoughts Pt. 1

Updated: Mar 1

Entrepreneur Life…

It’s been awhile since I have posted. I had to really reset and refocus who and where I wanted to be. I am proud to say I am on an amazing journey and I can’t wait to share.

No one really TELLS you how to run your business. There is a TON of resources out there and sifting through it all can be incredibly tedious and for many can be the turnoff for even starting. I can honestly say I have second guessed myself numerous times and I’m sure there will be many more moments of fear in the future. I have truly been trying to get my business off the ground now for about two years. Now mind you, working a full time job, my husband retiring from the military, and trying to build a business all at the same time is not highly recommended, however, I took on the mindset, if not now then when (leap of faith).

If all I have to do is Lifestyle and Behavioral Coaching then how hard could that be, right? My passion. I went into this knowing there would be “Business” items I would have to address, however, I wasn’t aware of all the details there really are. It’s not JUST coaching, there’s so much more than I ever expected. Website design, marketing, emails, networking, selling myself and purpose, billing, etc. all while continuing to craft my skills as a professional. Who would have thought working from home would require all this, low overhead for sure, but (there’s always a but)… the learning curve is exhausting.

I don’t tell you this as a way to deter anyone from creating their dream. I tell you this as a way to prepare you for the future challenges on the journey that you will most definitely face while creating this dream. I am the biggest advocate for following your dreams and making them reality. I am telling you this to let you know if you are dreaming and working towards your life's goals it is not for the faint at heart, the lazy, the “maybe tomorrow” type of people. You have to want something so badly you eat, dream, and think continually about new ways to reach your goal. PODcast, books, Inspirational videos are all great, but this is just a recap of someone else’s journey attempting to motivate you. YOU take all of this information and transform it into who you want to be and make it happen. NOTHING is given but everything is gained, if you earn it.

I leave you with this thought…

What dream could be within reach, if you were more patient & persevered?
