Grab Life by the Goals

Mar 27, 2022

Do you have a huge and audacious goal or dream, but you’re too scared to take action on it? I think we all do, and this year I’ve been taking messy but decisive action toward my own dream of becoming a stand up comedian. In my work with aspiring and thriving entrepreneurs, I’ve learned a thing or two about how fear keeps us from pursuing our dreams, and in this episode I’m sharing the framework for pushing through fear so you’re not leaving your dreams on the backburner. If this episode inspires you to pursue a huge goal, DM me over on Instagram and claim that goal so I can cheer you on!

My 90-day business accelerator, Slay Your Side Hustle, kicks off April 4th, 2022! This program is everything you need to set up, socialize, and make SALES to make your business a reality. Visit to learn more!

Some key takeaways to help break through fear and take action:

  • Figure out where that fear is coming from. Is it the analysis paralysis that comes with entering the unknown? Is it guilt that what you want isn’t a “noble” endeavor? Do you not feel worthy of what you want? These are all so common, but there are tangible actions you can take to overcome these roadblocks.
  • The first step to doing the damn thing is claiming it! Start by filling in these blanks: “As a [persona], I want [thing] so that [outcome].” For example “As a comedian, I want a platform to excite, educate, and entertain so that I can activate a million goals.” Put your butt cheeks out there and claim not only your new role or identity you’re taking on, but also the exact outcome you want for this endeavor.
  • Hardcore commit to your goal. If you’re not sure where to start, reach out to someone who does, get their input, and immediately take action on what they tell you to do. Sign up for a class, tell people what you’re doing, and do the damn thing.
