Don’t Listen To Naysayers And The Time When I Was A ‘Silly Girl’ Playing Shop | Mentorsmith Tips #4 | CLARITY

Don’t Listen To Naysayers And The Time When I Was A ‘Silly Girl’ Playing Shop | Mentorsmith Tips #4 | CLARITY is my 4th video tip.

In this video I talk about thinking about what you ‘actually’ want. Plus a great story about the time when someone told me I was ‘a silly little girl playing shop’! How dare he!!!! You’ll have to listen to the video to find out why and why I told him to go sling his hook!

If you’ve listened to my other videos, you’ll hear me speak often about really deciding what it is you actually want. Nobody else can decide this for you. Even if they want to cast assertion on your plans. You have the choice to really model WHAT your business AND your home-life looks like.

There will be times in your business when you will have to grow a thick skin, ignore negativity and slay all the naysayers! It’s all bulls**t! Someone else’s negativity is NOT yours, so ignore it. Follow your dream and work out how to get there.

It’s not about NOT being able to do something, its about how and when!
