Do you ever experience mindset blocks that could be stopping you from reaching your full potential as a woman business owner?
When I recently asked our HerBusiness community this question I received some really honest and heart-open responses.
So, let’s dive in and look at how we can break through the two biggest obstacles that seem to keep women stuck in business.
First up, negative self-talk. It’s a common issue that many women struggle with, including me. We often doubt ourselves and worry about failing. But the truth is, taking risks can be a catalyst for growth.
To break away from this stuck way of thinking I like to start by considering what small, manageable risks I can feel confident in taking. I ask myself what small step can I take today, succeed at, celebrate and then take the next step.
When you start to notice when negative thoughts creep in and seek help and support when you need it, your mindset starts to shift. So, just being aware of self-sabotaging thinking and developing alternative behaviours and thoughts will help shift your perspective.
“It can be tough to overcome money mindset issues, especially if they were ingrained
in us by our families or culture.”
Next, let’s talk about money. Making money is a big part of running a business, but many women feel guilty or ashamed for charging what they’re worth. If this sounds familiar, you might be blocking yourself from making more money. You might be undercharging for your work, not making enough offers, or hiding and not promoting yourself.
I’ve been there too. When my business first started making real money, my partner PJ and I felt so uncomfortable about it. We were afraid of being judged for our success, so we hid it. But over time, we learned to own our value and charge what we were worth. We started offering more high-priced programs, retreats, and bundled packages that gave us a solid return on investment.
It can be tough to overcome money mindset issues, especially if they were ingrained in us by our families or culture. But it’s important to remember that you deserve to be paid for your hard work and expertise.
Reframing your mindset and seeing money as a positive force can help you achieve your goals and contribute to others.
In the HerBusiness Network, we encourage women to uplevel their money game and move away from charging low hourly rates or discounting to get work. We believe that women deserve to charge more and introduce new profitable revenue streams to their offers.
So, if you’re feeling blocked in your business, know that you’re not alone.
Negative self-talk and money mindset issues can be tough to overcome, but with awareness and support, you can break through these obstacles and achieve your full potential in business.
