Ever since I was a teacher for a year, and hated it, I knew I wanted to do something along the lines of what I am passionate about and find a way to get paid for it. I wanted to be a business owner and be in charge of my own work load and success levels.
It's been a couple years and now things are starting to be revealed to me as to what I'm going to do. I guess I just gotta jump all in!
Here's the "problem". Pulling the trigger, so to speak, is terrifying. Once done, cannot be undone. You just deal with the effects of it as it comes.
Things I'm nervous to commit to:
Registering for the Certified Personal Trainer Exam - That test is expensive! What if I don't pass it? What if I have to waste more money to take it again because I didn't do it right the first time?
Registering my business name - Yeah a name sounds all good now, but I tend to like to change things up. What if I get bored with the name, or don't like it after a few months? What if it is great here in Florida but then doesn't work when I take the business with me to say San Diego when my hubs gets re-stationed? I really wanna build a brand for my business and changing names too many times kinda won't work.
Then there is the other thing I worry about which are my own personal fitness goals. I want to reach my goals by the summer, be "bikini ready" as they say. Of course this is not only for feeling confident at the beach or not worrying about what I am wearing looking good or not (things we women freak out about no matter what our size!) but this is also about living what I'm selling.
It's about business. How can it not be? How could I ever expect to be a successful fitness trainer if I can't even commit and reach my own goals? I have to be a leader. It is a constant battle to be disciplined. So when I want to skip my run and go have beer, I have to remind myself, I'm building a walking advertisement here! ;-p I simply cannot inspire anyone if I don't live by example.
All these commitments need to be set by summer. Summer is fast approaching, so I better get off this post and get back to studying!
P.S. How do you like the social media icons I added? They are so cute! They don't link to anything just yet but I need them there as I build the look of this site! :-)
