Now, I want to share something personal with you (I actually feel nervous to share this…)
When I was 24 years old, I was working as an English teacher in Japan, trying to figure out what the heck I wanted to do with my life.
Not only did I feel unengaged and unimportant at my day job, I also felt like my entire life lacked purpose and meaning. I was lost, and if I’m being honest, really depressed about it.
While other friends were starting med school and creative businesses, I felt like I was “behind” — yes, even at 24!
At the time, I was working on a little side project: my new blog. It didn’t take long for me to become obsessed with the world of blogging and online business. I loved the creativity! The community! The experimentation!
But there was one thing missing from the entire equation for me:
Confidence and courage.
See, growing a blog is similar to growing a business: you have to be willing to put yourself out there and making mistakes.
But me? I’d spent so much of my life trying to be perfect for everyone else, that the thought of trying something — and failing — was almost enough to make me quit before I even started.
I contorted myself to fit into every box — to be the kind of person no one else could find fault in.
Deep down, I wanted to be worthy.
So in the beginning, I played small. I didn’t take advantage of obvious opportunities because I was afraid I’d fail at them (and for a recovering People Pleaser, the thought of failing terrified me).
Then, one day, I enrolled in an online course. The first one I’d ever taken. Something about it spoke to me — I knew on a gut level that I needed to join that program. So, I did.
And Henry, to this day, years later, I still look at that moment as a turning point in my life.
Because looking back, I wasn’t just enrolling in an online course…
...I was enrolling in myself.
I was committing to NO MORE playing small.
I was declaring that *I* was worth investing in (yes, even before my blog or business was making money!).
I was sending a message to the universe — and myself — that I wasn’t going to let my fears stop me from living the life I dreamed of.
You might feel the same way I used to, Henry. Worried that if you try too hard, put yourself out there too much, commit too strongly to your business or blog…
...then it might fail.
(And there are few things that can make us feel more unworthy than failure, am I right?!)
Well, I never told you what happened after I enrolled in that course…
...To be honest, I DID make a lot of mistakes in the beginning.
I’d take photos for a blog post, only to realize they all turned out blurry.
I’d publish an opt-in form, and then have people tell me I set it up incorrectly and they couldn’t subscribe.
I had Face-Palm moments almost everyday...but I kept going.
And over time, I started to get the hang of things...
- I published content that people actually looked forward to reading.
- I grew my email list into the hundreds of thousands of subscribers.
- I’d get emails from people in tears saying that my work changed their life.
- I started a 6-figure graphic design business from my dining room.
- And later a 7-figure education company for entrepreneurs.
And none of that happened because I was waiting for the “perfect moment” to get started.
I just went for it, Henry.
And that very first online course I took (before my biz ever made a penny), gave me the courage to believe that I was worth it.
And lovebug, I want you to believe that you’re worth it, too.
I want you to see how many lives YOU can change, as soon as you commit to stop playing small.
We’re down to the wire for you to enroll in Email List Academy (enrollment closes in a few hours btw).
I know that you’re interested in growing your email list, but I see that you haven’t signed up for the program yet.
So, I have a feeling that the reason you haven’t enrolled has nothing to do with the course material...
...And everything to do with your belief in yourself.
As someone who used to “wait for the perfect moment” to be ready...Who was afraid to invest in herself because she didn’t think she was worth it...Who played small for years because she was afraid of owning her power…
...I GET it.
But I want you to know that when you enroll in Email List Academy, you’re committing to more than just “growing your email list.”
You’re committing to yourself. Your dream. The lives you want to change.
This course could become YOUR turning point, Henry.
And if you’re nervous about signing up, but you KNOW in your gut that this is the right step for you, then don’t worry — that’s absolutely normal when you’re making a commitment to something that matters to you.
One of my favorite things about Email List Academy is that I’m doing LIVE weekly coaching calls for the next THREE MONTHS with my ELA students.
So, I’ll be able to…
- Make SURE you get through the material and hold you accountable.
- Answer all of your questions so that you can get incredible results.
- Push you to believe in yourself, and help you to heal when you’re worried that you’re not enough.
As someone who’s been where you are right now, I’m going to be holding your hand every step of the way.
I truly hope to see you inside Email List Academy, Henry. This course could change everything for you.
