What Planning a Birthday Party Taught Me About Launching in Online Business

In today's episode, we’re talking all about how planning out a birthday party taught me a lot of lessons about online business…specifically, about LAUNCHING in online business.

There were a lot of aspects about planning this birthday party that brought up some fears of failure, rejection, and had me questioning if following up was really necessary.

And it was in overcoming those fears that helped me realize some really important lessons in my online business.

Let’s dive in!


>> At 3:14, I share why sending a follow-up invitation (via text!) to my daughter’s friend for her birthday kind of made me panicky. Why would something fun (like a birthday party) cause me to be nervous? Hint: It has to do with some past fears of rejection. I know I’m not alone in these fears, especially in business. Let’s talk through them…


>> At 7:35, I teach you how you can reframe some of these fears you might also have. It’s all about perspective! If you can learn to look at these in a different light, it can be really powerful for your mindset as you run your business.


>> At 9:42, we finish with answering why this even matters in your online business. Why do we need to work through fears like rejection? Why can’t I take the easier route and just avoid it altogether? I share why here!
