What's your brand cocktail for success?

*cues up to the bar* Let's start the tab, shall we? Take the quiz and find your brand cocktail for success.

What if I told you that you’re afraid of success?.. and the fear of success could be what's holding you back?

There are so many mindset blocks that come up as entrepreneurs but not enough of us are talking about the fear of success. Or when we do talk about it, we gloss over it like it’s something we don’t really have to deal with.

Marketers and course creators talk about making 6 figures in a weekend, and it’s easy to find ourselves reaching for our credit card to purchase yet another program promising us riches and a dreamy beach lifestyle.

But then we don’t do “the thing”. You know–the thing it really takes to be successful. The thing that scares you the most (other than spiders or heights or snakes–but bare with me here!). After 10+ years of mentoring other wedding pros, I know that the thing that holds us back can look different for everyone. But we all have something!

For you, the thing might be getting in front of the camera. It might be a product or service launch you keep delaying. It might be a constant energy drain of what people might think or what they might say if you start to really show up in your business. 

This episode is part of our mindset series.

Today on the podcast as part of our mindset series, I wanted to really dive into how the fear of success stops us from really truly pursuing the businesses we want. I know I’ve seen this pop up in my own business from time to time and one thing I know for sure is that it is SNEAKY. It’s not as obvious as other fears – like the fear of failure or something that keeps you up at night. 

Ready to have an honest discussion about the fear of success?

On this episode of The Power in Purpose Podcast, we're breaking down your fear of success:

  • What fear of success really means – because it’s not really fear (hear me out!) 
  • Reasons we fear success & why it is totally normal
  • Why looking at the facts is crucial when pushing through your fears
