I CREATED MY FIRST ONLINE PRODUCT! (FIRST DRAFT). BIZ VLOG 147-149.

Day 147 (00:14) – I got to open my new laptop today!!!! I must say, opening shiny things and then having Eddie figure out all the tech stuff might be my new hobby! Haha! Really though, we are super pumped about the new addition to the family (we even named her!)

On another note, I felt really distracted throughout the day (probably because of the new toys showing up PLUS the heat wave that hits the studio every afternoon!) but at the end of the day I took a step back to re-center myself. And I realized that I’m extremely close to finishing the first draft of my first course! I’m only a few paragraphs away (omg!) and that completely terrifies me AND excites me! I can’t believe it!!! I still have A LOT of work to do but this is still a giant step forward, I feel so proud! I feel proud not just because I’m actually creating my first product but because I’ve been ENJOYING THE PROCESS.

I haven’t felt stressed or anxious, I’ve been allowing myself to enjoy my mornings with Eddie and Cilantro and I haven’t been working into late hours of the night, I’ve only worked on this course when I feel I’m in a good place, when I’m feeling inspired. This is a very different approach from the way I was operating when I first started this vlog and I’m not only seeing but also FEELING the difference. At this pace I know that only big things are ahead, amazing breakthrough and powerful lessons… I’m excited and I feel ready.

Day 148 (03:55) – I finished the first draft of my onlineprogram. OMG. I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF MY FIRST PRODUCT!!!!

Day 149 (06:16) – I think I freaked out a little today because I avoided work today… I decided to clean my office all afternoon! Part of me knows exactly what I need to do next and the other part of me is finding ways to stall progress! But it’s okay, I’m giving myself a day or two to really sit with this feeling and plan out the next important steps.

In today’s update I finally share a few details on WHAT I’m creating exactly! It took me so long to gather my thoughts and be able to explain this in a way that makes sense! I felt nervous to share this on camera partly because it makes all of this feel MORE real (insert all the nervous emojis here), there’s no turning back now! This definitely feels like a rollercoaster… it’s exhilarating and terrifying all at once! I can’t wait to share more of this journey with you, thank you so much for watching!

Xoxo,
