It can be incredibly frustrating when things don’t go your way.
When you have expectations … only to be let down.
This is what I felt after I poured my heart and soul into a launch that generated over $144,000.
I didn’t sleep for weeks leading up to the launch.
I drained my creative juices into persuasive emails and sales pages.
And after we closed the cart and I looked at the numbers … I smiled with satisfaction seeing those six figures staring back at me.
Six figures. In only two weeks. From a digital launch.
Pretty sweet, right?!?
I was happy…
But my happiness and satisfaction didn’t last long.
Because this particular launch wasn’t for me and my online biz. In fact … I made $0 from it.
On the contrary … this launch was one that I spear-headed while still working in Corporate America.
I did it for my employer, to prove my worth.
And after my efforts proved successful, I confidently asked for a small raise before initiating another launch.
“No.” they replied.
To add salt to my wounds, I was also instructed to run another launch.
“We like what you’re doing to generate income for the company. We won’t pay you for it.” they said.
At first, I was hurt and offended.
But then, I realized … it will always be this way.
Sure, I could go work at another job, for another employer … but in the end, all of my efforts are still benefiting someone else’s bottom line.
And at the end of the day … making zero from $144k was the BEST thing to have ever happened to me.
Because this was the catalyst for reaching success in my own side hustle…
THIS was the moment that I became determined to quit my 9-5.
Why am I sharing this with you?
Because it may be a good thing if you’re feeling let down right now.
If things aren’t going your way at your job … EMBRACE your dissatisfaction.
Real change is cultivated when you’re unhappy with your current situation.
Wherever you’re at right now … you are EXACTLY where you’re supposed to be.
Leverage your dissatisfaction to create real change in your business and your future.
I believe in you, beautiful.❤️️
