“I’m scared to put myself out there.”

This is, easily, the thing that most people say to me when we talk about their business.


Followed closely by:

“How can I compete with ‘all the amazing people’ in my industry?”


“I’m worried people will judge me.”


“Everyone I know is doing cool stuff and I’m still thinking about it.”


And the classic, ‘I’m SO behind.’


Recently, I shared a section from my eBook about the tortoise and the hare.  That, as introverts, we operate differently from the way we’ve been told we should – and the way many others work.

All of the above statements come from one place.

Fear, dipped in ‘I’m not enough’.


It looks like:

// Seeing your business buddies on social media, who constantly seem to be launching their new ideas into the world, while you continue to sit on yours.


// Those same people (who you love dearly), telling you to hurry up and get stuff out there already. They mean well, but they’re not really helping, are they?


// Never finishing that draft, just continuing to scrap it and start again, or pop it in a (literal or virtual) drawer for when you feel ‘ready’.


// Pages and pages of notes and to-do lists, ideas and thoughts that you go around in circles, trying to decide what to start first, how to pull it together, and how to get it out into the world.


// Wondering if this big dream, this idea of running your own business and actually making good money from it is ever actually going to happen, or if it’s going to stay a dream forever.


I get it. I’ve been there.


And, there are a bunch of things that I’ve changed in the past 12 months to get out of that head space and in a different place to be seen and heard.


So, I’ve put together a 7-day FREE e-Course to share it with you.

It’s called Be Seen And Heard and it starts on May 23rd.


In this 7-day free e-course, you’ll learn:

Day 1 –  How to get past overwhelm and get back to basics

Day 2 –  How to shut out the noise around you

Day 3 – How to grow your own confidence

Day 4 – How to focus on what matters

Day 5 – How to get attention with out being the centre of attention

Day 6 – How to be more like your friends who are ‘doing amazing things’

Day 7 – How to connect with the people who need to hear what you have to say


This is not going to be labour intensive.

You’re busy and you’ve got shit to do.  You’re probably over committed up to your eyeballs, as it is.

This is bite sized info, with quick and easy tips and solutions to get you on your way.


I’m not a fan of inbox overwhelm and, I promise you, if you can commit to doing one small thing each day, you’ll start to see changes.

So click here to register (or pop your details in the box below.

Your first lesson will hit your inbox on the 23rd of May.

Get ready to set yourself up to be seen and heard (and feeling good about it!)

And, if you know anyone who could do with this eCourse too, please share this post with them.
