I was out with a friend the other night bouncing around town when I noticed how often she says, “I don’t know.” Being a SoulFUEL™ Business Coach I notice ANYTHING that sabotages success.
Saying “I don’t know.” leaves you in a helpless place of really never knowing. It closes you off from receiving a potential solution.
It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy!
What phrase do you repeat that leads to DEAD ENDS in your life and business? Is it, “I don’t know how to make money doing what I love?” or, “I don’t know how to find good clients!”
When it comes to starting your business, the “I don’t know hows” need to be a space of uncertainty you must learn how to navigate.
Quick Secret: Every successful person has walked the road you are walking. No support, feeling alone and second guessing if it will ever work. And guess what, it does work when you stop allowing this thought to slow you down.
Believe me, I didn’t know how to do ANY of this stuff until I learned how.
Here’s what will get you over the hill so you start getting better results faster!
Start saying and BELIEVING that…
You will figure it out.
I often hear from women who are overwhelmed by all there is to do to get their blissful business off the ground.
I get it, believe me. I was stuck, confused, and paralyzed (otherwise known as: giving up) for the better part of a decade. It was a huge waste of precious time. Ruminating and wondering just won’t get you there.
I can tell you, there are countless ways to begin but the key right now, is simply TO begin.
In today’s Video Blog, I will share three easy steps you can take TODAY to get the ball rolling!
Here’s what’s special about today’s video… I am offering to pay you! How cool is that?! These steps will take you less than 30 minutes too (45 minutes tops).
I want to help you get past your ‘I don’t know hows’ and into the action that gets you where you want to go. Action creates momentum and momentum is powerful stuff.
Name your business. If you’re stuck, I suggest (for now) simply naming your business with your first name, last name then Worldwide or Global, comma LLC. For example, “Jane Smith Worldwide, LLC”. “Erin Rogers Global, LLC”.
You can always create as many DBA’s (“Doing Business As”) as you want under that (for your fancy shmancy business name(s)). This strategy helps you get over the procrastination you may be experiencing with respect to filing your business name, etc. If your business name is your actual name, you do not need permission or a trademark to use it.
Form your LLC (Limited Liability Corporation) through www.legalzoom.com (if you haven’t already) using the name you just created in Step #1. LLCs are appropriate for just about any start-up*. They provide you with greater legal and financial protection than a Sole Proprietorship**, which is what you are by default if you do not file as a corporation.
*Please consult with a legal and/or tax professional with questions.
You can easily transition to another type of corporation (e.g. S Corp or C Corp) if needed, later. Don’t worry about which one right now… just get started with an LLC. This is assuming you are in start-up mode.
Next – let me PAY YOU to do this: If you form your LLC between now and October 15, 2014 and we mutually decide to invest in a Coach/Client agreement together (minimum: 6 months), I will happily reimburse your expense for the formation of your LLC, up to $149 U.S. dollars. This covers you for the Basic/Economy package LegalZoom offers to form an LLC, as of the date of this video. You only need to pay the State Filing Fee on your own.
To get reimbursed, all you need to do is this:
1) Buy the Economy/Basic package to form an LLC (including your State Filing Fee), and complete their application process. It’s easy and doesn’t take long at all.
2) Keep your receipt.
3) Schedule your free SoulFUEL™ Business Bliss Breakthrough call by clicking on the “Let’s Talk” or “Contact” pop-up, in the lower right corner of your screen.
Taking advantage of your free call does not obligate you to work with me as your Coach. If nothing else, you will get really clear about what your next steps are.
4) Complete an application to be considered as a private client of mine. Please note: there are only five available spots open in my new Diamond program.
5) Assuming it’s a mutual match, sign up for at least six months of strategy and SoulFUEL support with me as your Coach, and be one of the first five gutsy gals to do so.
As your Coach, I show you step-by-step how to create a business and life you love by launching and profiting from your passion. I’ve done this for many super awesome people like yourself: www.wendycollier.com/success-stories.
6) Once you are a private client, send me your receipt, and get reimbursed the full $149.

Grab your domain, and use the same strategy suggested in Step #1 if you’re stuck, which is to use your full name for now (assuming it’s available). Here are services where you can register your domain:
If your name isn’t available as a domain, create another one. Play with this. Do searches, and see what’s available that sings to you. Allow yourself to experience the magic of what happens once you put just a little structure into place.
The point is to help you get into motion… to inspire you to dislodge from what’s holding you back and into the actions that will lead you into your soul-fueled life and business.
There is no time like today to begin living life the way you know you were meant to live –
free and fulfilled.
Last but not least – tell me what you jammed on, in the comments below. I’d love to celebrate with you! Ask questions, get support… share with others. It’s always worth it.
Oodles of love,
