Influencer can be a loaded word. Something we may aspire to, or even roll our eyes at the whisper of it. But I bet that you’ve said to yourself, “Who am I to do this? What do I have to offer? How would I even start?” when it comes to a project or business opportunity.
I’ll be honest, I have! Before starting Barre Variations this is exactly what I was saying to myself. I had been there done that when it came to creating a method, a business, and product. It failed and I didn’t have the confidence to start again with my new knowledge and experience. So instead, I went on teacher auto-pilot. I ignored my desire to be my own boss.
It took me 5 years and a couple of moves (6 to be exact), to listen to my lovely husband to TRY AGAIN. He always pushed me to keep creating and doing the things I loved, which was always a welcome push when my ego got in the way. But, I had to learn for myself how to truly OWN MY SH*** to begin to thrive, and become an influencer in the barre community.
Ask me a year a go to own that phrase and I wouldn’t have been able to. I had a very specific vision for how I wanted to make an impact in our industry, and I didn’t want to wait for someone else to do it. I wanted to start the change and be the change for a stronger, more inclusive, uplifiting community. Want to know what I did to start to own how to be an influencer??
3 Steps to owning my sh** to become an influencer:
- Know exactly where I came from, the story that is ME!
- Share share share! I shared the story of my life’s experiences.
- I affirmed my purpose and the WHY behind my work’s mission.
