Time's Up for Insecurities: Entrepreneur

You’re looking at my first headshot. I had been in business for over 10 years managing a private practice that I founded and operated. Over the years, I spearheaded programming that helped 10,000 people in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex with very little marketing and professional business coaching. It was a blessing daily to see God’s grace manifested in my life. At that point, I had three practice locations in three different cities with 30 employees and things were looking marvelous.
 
The income was so good that my accountant asked me why I wasn’t spending more money. I told him, “Because it could be gone tomorrow.” “Oh no, you can’t think like that. Enjoy the benefits of your hard work.” Even though it put a smile on my face, I did not change my mindset towards money because I remembered what it felt like to have no electricity, no running water, and a repossessed car. I never wanted to revisit some of the darkest moments of my childhood again. While I never went without, I certainly had times where we showered at a relative’s home or spent the weekend having sleepovers while we awaited the opening of the electric company on Monday morning. So, my insecurities with “balling out” were firmly grounded in always wanting abundance.
 
So, when the state cut funding to the very area of which my 
contracts rested, my agency’s income was slashed by 70%. I went from 30 employees to 3 in the second quarter of that year.I downsized my offices, restructured, and continued providing services. At one moment as I sat alone in an office that was sized for 20 clinicians, I laid my head on my desk and prayed. When I lifted my head again with tears streaming down my face, I assured myself that I had nothing to be ashamed of unless I stopped believing in myself. That was one thing I had carried from early in my life with each challenge I faced, believing in myself.
 
I see other women with professional and personal goals who have stopped believing in themselves and I immediately want to grab them by the shoulders and say, “Girl, come on, you got this! You’ve prayed and God has answered, it is time to act!” For the last ten years, I have perfected a program that holistically addresses accountability and growth. Operating in one quadrant of the four and not the others causes significant levels of imbalance that leave us feeling unfulfilled.
How many times have your insecurities caused you to feel imbalance?
 
Tomorrow, I am going live on Facebook and my Youtube channel (https://tinyurl.com/y63kcudg)for a special announcement! I’ve been able to help other women remove the grip of insecurity for over 20 years. Time’s Up!
