My lack of education was something that stopped me from being who I wanted to be for a long time.
Not because I needed certain qualifications to get where I wanted to go, but because I was embarrassed that nobody would take me seriously.
So I stood back, because if I stepped forward… someone might call me on my bullshit.
I’m a super successful business owner, and I also still Google definitions of words sometimes when I don’t know wtf people are talking about. Many people assume I’m well-educated because of what I’ve built, but my education didn’t come from classes and handbooks…
It came from living through really hard shit and making it to the other side.
It came from building a resilient mindset after being knocked down and getting back up a million times.
It came from failing, a lot.
But I let this lack of formal education, letters behind my name, degrees hanging on my walls… tell me that I wasn’t good enough. I believed that in order to really help people, I needed to be smarter.
So I wouldn’t speak up around people who were “smarter” than me. And I think of all the people I assumed didn’t need my coaching because of how well-educated they are.
What I know now is that my life experience is my education, my resume is the thousands of women I’ve helped all over the world and I don’t need a piece of paper to tell me I’m capable of creating impact.
This is your reminder that no matter who you are, and what you think isn’t enough about you… your potential is greater than you know.
