Holy cow you guys! This little baby of ours is turning O N E today!!! I kid you not– I totally have butterflies in my stomach writing this post! Whewwww stick with me because it may be an emotional one!
Last year this time I was hyperventilating (this is no exaggeration) in my living room with my husband next to me freaking out and hysterically saying “I can’t do this!”
Let me paint the picture for you…
One Year Ago Today
I had just finished a very LONG and tiresome day of workshop prep with my dear friend Avery, who helped me host our very first workshop. I was exhausted, excited, but most of all, extremely nervous. I couldn’t get the possible image of our socialites confused and frustrated out of my head. Who was I kidding?! I can’t teach!
It wasn’t the training material I was worried about– I knew we had something incredible and unique from the start. But, I couldn’t for the life of me, gather the confidence in myself to feel ready and capable. My anxiety was snow-balling…
Who’s going to listen to me? What if they don’t learn anything? What if I can’t answer their questions? I can’t do this!
As not-so-cute tears streamed down my face, my husband held me and said, “Jess, this right here is an example of why you will be so successful. You put your heart and soul into this. You know what you’re talking about and you’re here to help others. You will rock this!”
I took a deep breath. I wiped the tears from my face and decided then and there– I WAS going to rock this!
The last year has been a complete whirlwind!
Here’s the breakdown:
Five successful workshops + the sixth on the way!
