are you anything like me?
I have always been an entrepreneur obsessed with GROWTH, I strive to live the “go big or go home” life, and I really enjoy connecting with and helping people who are similar.
I’m always pushing myself in all areas of my life and business.
I’m not afraid to fail. It’s how I learn what doesn’t work and it continually steers me further towards what does!
And I know there are people out there who are comfortable staying small, or they want to only go to a certain level and then stay there, or for some reason they think they “can’t” or “shouldn’t” grow…
Or that it’s greedy, bad, evil, unnecessary, whatever belief they have chosen to justify their smallness…
But I just feel like, because of the way that I am, I a actually sometimes feel like I am WASTING my passion and talent and gifts by trying to encourage and push and motivate and help people who are not already naturally motivated and HUNGRY for growth.
And it’s not like I need to be the person that tries to motivate people either
Because there are a BAZILIAN other coaches, mentors, motivational people out there who help with the fluffy feel good stuff… and I like it, sure, but I don’t feel like it’s what I am meant to do…
I like to get down and dirty and directly to the point of what you need to do and who you need to BE if you want to build a successful business, and if you’re HUNGRY FOR IT..
So, while this thought has just come to me, I’m deciding to just send it to you…
And while there is a part of me that is legit TERRIFIED of upsetting people by saying “sorry, if you are not prepared to scale, you’re not my person” it feels like the right thing to do, and so I’m following the feeling, as always.
It doesn’t mean that I can’t and won’t still attempt to motivate people to GROW, because I KNOW that some of you that are keeping yourself small actually secretly do want to go big, and maybe you just need to see or hear the right message that’s going to encourage you to GO FOR IT…
But I’m deciding I am no longer going to hand-hold or try to help people if they’re not already obsessed with going ALL-IN on their own business already.
Like, if you doubt the fact that you can grow, or you think that ‘maybe a big successful profitable business is not for me’ then no, I am not your person.
Why is this message coming through me right now? Well, I think I know.
Like all the messages that come through me, this one just popped into my head and wanted me to write it down and share it.
I asked why this was the right time to share it and the answer I got was “BECAUSE CARISSA, YOU YOURSELF LIKE TO WORK WITH AND FOLLOW AND SUBSCRIBE TO MENTORS WHO ARE LIKE THIS!”
And yes, intuition, or higher self, or spirit guide, or whoever you are; you are right.
While I obviously love working on my mindset along the way, I always prefer to work with coaches and follow people online who completely OWN THE FACT that they want to go big, that they are DRIVEN, that they are obsessed with their business, and that they want to make a lot of money and experience financial and time-based freedom.
IT INSPIRES ME! I want to learn from people who have DONE IT and who are actively still DOING IT themselves…
And that’s how I always have been!
I didn’t just get my home based business successful and profitable, I fucking opened 5 stores, sold them, imported my own brand of products and sold it internationally, created online training courses, a nationwide mobile service, have run tonnes of online courses and coaching programs over the last 5 years…
And I’m not sharing “what I’ve done” to boast, I’m saying THAT’S WHO I AM.
I will not stop growing, I can’t, I don’t want to, and I don’t think I should…
And I WANT TO BE A MENTOR FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME.
The ones who other people think should “settle down” and “just be happy with what they have” but no… that’s not us.
We actually can’t do that.
We are the inventors, the hunters, the mad scientists, the rockstars, the creative geniuses of the business world.
We are BORN THIS WAY and it’s actually not possible to “turn it off” and be satisfied living any kind of “normal” life…
Like, why would you want to do that when there is SO MUCH OPPORTUNITY these days to live the best fucking life you can? WHYYYYYYY???
And so, because of this, I want to help inspire people who WANT TO SCALE…
And ideally, not just people who want to scale to 6 figures or multi 6 figures (although that is often the initial goal)…
I have a new personal mission to help people like me PAY THEMSELVES A FUCKING 6 FIGURE SALARY, BIATCH.
(not sorry for the swearing, it’s just coming out of me, I can’t even help it)!
Like, is your business even successful though if you are not paying yourself from it?
I remember for the first few years of my business I didn’t pay myself, all the money went back into growth, and I know that’s normal when you are relatively new, BUT, by doing that I never had any money left over!
When I started paying myself, that’s when I actually was able to experience financial freedom.
I’m thinking of creating a video this week, called “HOW TO BUILD A BUSINESS THAT CAN PAY YOU A 6 FIGURE SALARY”
Would you like me to do that for you?
If you are this kind of super driven, go big or go home, mad scientist, crazy in the brain entrepreneur who is IN IT FOR LIFE BECAUSE IT’S JUST WHO YOU ARE!
Please reply to this email, tell me about the craziest thing you’ve done so far in business (just for fun), and let me know if you want me to send you the video when I’ve finished recording it. (No charge)!
Love Carissa xo
