Belinda's Tuesday Tip 96 – From Fear to “Happy Place” – Belinda's Journey to Launching a Subscription Box
Episode Summary –
In this episode, Belinda talks about pursuing your dreams even when things don't go as planned.
“I had been thinking about creating a subscription box for five years. It was just one of those things that I thought was going to be too difficult.”
Belinda had been considering creating a subscription box for five years, but the perceived difficulty of the project kept her from pursuing it. But then COVID-19 hit, disrupting her business. She realized that she could no longer keep waiting for things to go back to normal and she needed to find a way to move forward.
Belinda finally made the decision to move forward with her subscription box idea, but it required a lot of time and investment. She sought consulting gigs to fund the project, but then setbacks came. Two potential clients told her that she was “too old” and not “relatable” enough. This hurt Belinda deeply and made her cry all day on her birthday.
But she refused to let the comments become her truth. She pushed past her fear and worked on developing the subscription box behind the scenes, despite the financial risks involved. Today, Belinda admits that she feels like a “brand new baby business” but she is determined to make it work.
Belinda's story is an inspiring example of what it means to pursue your dreams despite the setbacks and obstacles that come along the way. She found her happy place in pursuing her passions, and despite the challenges, she has remained determined and focused. Her journey reminds us that it's never too late to work towards the life we've always dreamed of.
In conclusion, we hope that Belinda's story has inspired you to pursue your dreams and work towards your happy place. Remember that obstacles may come, but don't let them define you. Keep pushing, stay focused, and don't give up. The life you've always wanted may be just a step away.
