IT’S ALL HERE AND IT’S ALL HAPPENING — IT’S TIME TO DISCOVER HOW TO DO THE THING!
Your Key to Courageous Action is…
Prune the Perfectionism
Pat yourself on the back — you have an impeccable eye for detail. You could walk into any room and *instantly* know what’s out of place, and you never quit on a project until you know it’s perfect.
There’s nothing you love more than a project done right. No stone unturned. No detail overlooked.
More often than not, your closest people can find you working endlessly on a work project, business plan, or some kind of major home reno or decor project— spending hours upon hours getting that “just right” feel.
What’s the point of doing or creating anything if it’s not your absolute best, right?
But here’s the thing you may not know -and it’s about to change the game in a BIG way!
Befriending your inner critic is key to unlocking your next big move
While perfectionism might be your ”get things done right” ally — it could also keep you from doing the thing.
Focusing too much on the details means that those projects you’re perfecting never see the light of day.
And while your perfectionism can lead to high levels of success, it’s also your #1 source of stress and anxiety, keeping you in a constant state of overwhelm.
The truth is that all the energy you burn by needing everything to be perfect means you’re burnt out before you can make any real progress on your goal.
And burning all that energy up in the name of perfection means you risk the most important piece of all: doing the thing!
You deserve to know the feeling of going ALL IN on your hopes and dreams. You deserve to see things through all of the way vs. being stuck with it being perfect. All of your creations can evolve with you as you go, and they don’t need to look exactly how you originally planned!
But in order to actually feel it, I can’t just tell you — you have to bite the fruit and experience it for yourself…
Which means you have to be willing to gracefully tell your inner perfectionist to take the back seat.
That’s right — you need to practice compassion when your inner critic gets loud and tells you that you can’t be flawed like the rest of us.
Because the truth is, no one and nothing is perfect. And it’s unrealistic to set the bar so high for yourself.
Instead of setting goals that feel unrealistic to attain, you need to take imperfect action. Imperfect action is better than no action at all. Pick just one small step to your bigger goal, set a date and time — and do your very best in that timeframe. Surrender the details and trust that you’ve done enough.
You also need to be willing to make moves before you feel ready and to trust that the moment you take that first step is the moment that everything changes.
And know this: Just because you are taking imperfect action, it doesn’t mean your process can’t evolve along the way. The point is to act now to stay in the momentum. Done is better than perfect.
Remember, pruning the perfectionist is a practice of changing a habit. It takes time, patience, and a whole lot of self compassion. But I know that you’ve got this, and you’re supported through the entire journey!

Here’s What Your Key To Courageous Action Says About You:
Your knack for perfection makes you a high-achieving, highly dedicated, never-back-down type of person who’s hardwired for success.
You make for an A+ teammate, and people will go to great lengths to collaborate with you.
Why? Because you’re just so dang good at what you do!
Your motivation to get it “just right” trickles into everything you do — from home to work and everything in between. The work ethic you embody is commendable, and your loyal commitment to your promises? Well let’s just say, you deserve a round of applause. 👏👏👏
Courageous Action Crux: With all great power comes great responsibility!
In your case, you could benefit from pouring some of that fierce loyalty and dedication back into your own goals and dreams.
And dare I say: without the fear of not being perfect.
Look, there’s no shortage of what you’re capable of creating — but I can tell you this…
Starting that new business, that new hobby, or that new relationship is going to feel so much sweeter when you can drop the need for it to all look and feel a certain way. When you can let go of the shoulds and say “YES” to life with conviction, regardless of it meeting your criteria of perfection.
*Remember: you are still just as loveable even in your imperfections.*
So let me tell you why this is so important for YOU.
Cause here’s the thing…
When you’re looking to take on that next thing — whether it’s leaving your 9-5, traveling the world, or choosing to date again…
There will NEVER be a perfect time, perfect circumstance, or perfect person to make it all possible.
And here’s why: doing the thing does not require your conditions to be just right — it only requires one thing…
That’s right. Your location, education, and socioeconomic status don’t matter. Heck, it doesn’t even matter what your social media following count is.
It only matters that you take action. Beautifully flawed, imperfect action. And that you continue to take that action toward what you truly desire deep down.
Anyone can make that thing happen. Anyone can make an impact, make the first move, or make money doing what they love.
But it’s not going to happen when you’re sitting in the stands.
Here’s what will work, though:
Remember That Imperfect Action Is Better Than No Action At All
I’ll tell you this right now — doing something, ANYTHING will get you closer to the goal you’re after. Whether you find yourself fumbling around in a puddle of perceived failure, or you feel like you’ve lost your mind completely…
It Does. Not. Matter.
Steve Jobs did the thing when he started Apple from his garage. Oprah Winfrey did the thing even as everyone around her told her she’d never make it in television.
These humble beginnings of feeling the fear and doing it anyway have wound up being some of the greatest success stories of our time.
All because they were willing to take action in the face of adversity or imperfection.
At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that you took a step towards the person you know deep down you are, and the dreams you know you can achieve.
Go before you’re ready.
If going before you’re ready still feels a little bit scary, ask yourself this:
“What’s the worst thing that can happen?”
Risk assessment can help you identify the fear and the perceived roadblocks created by your mind.
Fear can only live in uncertainty. When you ask what the worst possible outcome could be, the uncertainty has space to become certain.
Take some time to visualize the worst possible scenario and watch as some of that fear of getting started dissolves.

Your Superpower Strength:
When you set your eyes on the prize, there’s no stopping you… even if it means spending hours upon hours getting every last detail just right.
Your knack for quality results means that you basically can’t underdeliver in any category.
I want to be clear here, your desire for detail is most definitely a gift, and it should be celebrated! Your inner perfectionist is wise and caring, and simply wants you to feel safe and secure. It shows that you are loyal and committed, and want your work to be recognized.
What you do want to watch for? When your eye for detail (one of your biggest gifts) is pulling you too far from the big picture!
Your perfectionism is designed to keep you safe and keep you from taking the BIG risks on the things you truly want in your life.
When your perfectionist voice gets loud, see if you can quiet your mind, lean in and ask the question: “what is it that you really want me to know?” If you can learn to befriend this voice, and get to know it, the less control it will have over how you live your life.
What you don’t own, owns you. And as someone with an inner perfectionist, you deserve to own this narrative so you can free up the space to live freely and creatively!

KNOW YOURSELF SO YOU CAN GROW YOURSELF:
Do The Thing by…
Knowing Your Do’s and Don’ts
The path to clarity means knowing your why, and your why not.
Understanding what works for you, and what doesn’t will make the path to your next thing a smooth one. Keep these in your back pocket so you know what’s a “go” in your world, and when it’s time to pause and reflect.
GO FOR IT
✔️Tame your perfectionist — give it a name and get to know it so she’s not always steering the ship. Remember, it’s great to have the gift of a detailed eye, it’s just knowing when to use it!
✔️ Say yes to what lights your soul up, especially if it feels scary! Your perfectionist might feel overwhelmed and fear failure, so practice saying YES and going before you’re ready.
✔️ Remember everything is energy. Match your frequency to what it is YOU want. Energy always flows where attention goes — so ask yourself, where are you directing your energy, and is it in service to the life you’re trying to create?
Are you directing your energy towards the guilt of not feeling enough ortowards your dreams and desires? Be gentle with yourself, you don’t have to know all the answers!
✔️ Nurture your need for details, but be mindful of your need for flawlessness. There’s room for you to develop your excellence, but needing it all to be perfect can lead to analysis paralysis!
✔️ Learn from the past and move on! Instead of ruminating on what went wrong, see mistakes as an opportunity for growth!
PAUSE AND REFLECT
✘ Don’t let that inner critic boss you around! When that stingy voice comes in, quietly thank it for trying to protect you, then kindly show it the door.
✘ Pipe down procrastination! Ask yourself this when prolonging action on your goals:
Do you really need that extra certification or course? Or are you studying just to study because you don’t feel good enough yet?
You don’t need all the certifications, read all the books, and do all the programs before you start, start and move, and learn as you go. Remember, there’s never going to be a perfect time to say YES to doing the thing. Learn along the way, sure, but don’t let it stop you from being in the flow!
✘ Just say no to comparison! Nothing slows you down like looking over your shoulder at who’s doing what. Stay in your lane.
✘ Don’t attach to perfection. Your process can evolve as you do. Get clear on your “north star” and take it one step at a time.
Do The Things You Really Want With Your Personalized “Do The Thing” Life Hack
Wouldn’t it be great to know exactly what blueprint or formula you should tap into before setting out to chase your goals?
The mindset that would allow you to chase that dream, take that leap, or leave that story behind for good?
The one that would free you to live your life connected to your dream state and allow you to create with ease?
You know the one I’m talking about…
It lives somewhere in the cobwebs of your subconscious mind.
And some part of you knows that if you could finally bring it forward — maybe *just maybe* you could do the things you’ve always dreamed of doing.
Here’s the thing: Doing the thing is going to look different for everyone, in different seasons of life. Sometimes it might look like taking a BIG leap into a new chapter. Sometimes it might look like making a small change to your daily routine to help you feel better.
The point is not to put so much pressure on yourself to get these things done, but to plug into your “why” and adopt the right formula or blueprint to help you get there effortlessly.
So ask yourself this question…
What do you *actually* want from this one life? 🤔
Seems like a pretty basic question, right?
But if you really start looking around, you’ll find that lots of people (at some point or another) have no idea what it is they truly want from life.
Can you relate to this? Here are a few clues as to why:
- You’re a recovering people pleaser and spend all your time tending to the needs of others. Who has time to soul search when they’re at the beck and call of, well… everyone?!
- You are too busy with work and the demands of life to ever give yourself a chance to think big.
- … Maybe you’re just too wrapped up in the distractions of life to even slow down for a hot second, and consider: “what the heck do I actually value and want from my life?”
Why is all of this so important?!
When you don’t live your life by your own rules, you live by the rules of another…
…And what a scary thought that is!
Not knowing where you stand in life means you’re that much more vulnerable to another person’s agenda.
You wind up with weak boundaries and weaker values.
You wind up being stuck in a marriage you feel trapped by.
You wind up staying in a job you can’t stand.
Or you resent the fact that your entire life feels like it’s not your own.
And you’re not alone in this. SO many people end up here — a quintessential doormat. For no fault of their own other than they don’t know any better. 🤷♀️
It’s Time To Change That Now 💯
You deserve to live a life that leaves you feeling free. One where you and only you are in the driver’s seat — calling the shots and living 100% in alignment with your true desires and dreams.
You deserve to wake up every morning and know that the life you are creating is uniquely and unequivocally YOURS.
…whether that means finally gaining the courage to leave that old relationship to seek out a partner that you truly want.
…or if it means mustering up the courage to write that book, take that trip, or start that pottery course you’ve been dreaming of.
Whatever the case may be, you’re 100% worth the work it takes to do the thing.
So don’t be afraid to listen to that voice inside you telling you that you are capable of more.
Listen to the part of you that knows there are more chapters to be written.
And don’t miss out on the opportunity to take the most critical step in getting there — the first one.
Because I’m going to be honest with you — anyone can forge a new path and set out to do the things they really want. But it’s not going to come without some discipline, action, and accountability.
You can say in your mind over and over how much you want to make those dreams happen in your life. The reality is: nothing changes unless something changes.
And change means you’ll have to cultivate inner strength, just like when you lift weights at the gym. Inner strength and discipline is just like a muscle — if you don’t use it, you lose it!
Know that you can start small. Build trust with yourself. Make promises to yourself that you can actually keep. Each time you flex that accountability muscle, you build internal strength that will help you move mountains!
Consider this your chance to BE that change that you want to see in your life. It’s time to take that step towards full accountability and creation of your one precious life.
And I’m about to help you get there.
You’re about to get a birds-eye view of the proven Do The Thing Formula — so you can say “I’M GAME” and take a leap into the life you’ve always wanted.
It’s time to build a life that aligns with your dream and no one else’s.
To show up as the person you were born to be.

Let Go So You Can Flow
DROP THE EGO AND PICK UP THE PACE
It’s time for a real honest moment here, friend — how many times are you going to let your ego get the best of you?
Call it the age of indecision, or the fact that every time you scroll through social media it seems like there’s something bigger, better, shinier…
But I call it the wandering eye of the ego. The one that’s never satisfied, never full, and looks for any old reason to stay stuck in those old tired ways.
The ego insists on (I repeat: insists) on staying safe and staying small. It will look for any excuse to keep steering that ship — anything to keep your essence from taking the wheel.
…and this can show up in so many ways (some pretty sneaky ones at that.) The ego can talk your essence right out doing that next thing by telling it that it’s just not ready to come out of hiding.
…that it just needs a little more time
…a little more experience
…a little more (insert self fulfilling prophecy here)
You catch my drift?
So how are you supposed to tune out the noise of this incessant inner bully and start listening to the quiet whisper of your soul’s deepest desire? How do you stop bowing down to that paralyzing perfectionism?
The #1 thing you can do for yourself?
Let Your Curiosity Lead The Way
Okay, okay — I realize that this is a lot easier said than done. If it were easy, then (duh) we’d all be doing it.
But I’m telling you: take this on as a daily practice and watch your life completely transform before your eyes.
Your curiosity doesn’t need to be right. It doesn’t need to be perfect. And it really doesn’t care what the end result is, because your curiosity is just in it for the process.
…that means spending hours on a creative project that lights you up — just for the sake of seeing what happens next
…or diving deep into a crochet course, just because you’ve always wondered what it would be like to master a cross-stitch
…or heck — going on that first date with the person you’ve run into a thousand times at the gym, just to see what they’re all about
I know, I know, your mind has about a million questions by now…
But what if I told you that by following the pings of what lights you up over what you think is “right” or “good enough” could be the greatest relief of your life?
Do yourself a favor?
Take the pressure off of making it all “just right” and comfy for your ego, so you can relax a little and enjoy the process.
In fact, let your ego take a rest in the back seat for a minute, and give your essence a shot at taking the wheel.
You might be surprised at how quickly the flow picks up, and how much more often you find yourself in just the right place at the right time.

Action Is the Key Ingredient for Success
SAYING “I’M GAME” = DO THE THING
Word of wisdom from the business world? ⇒ Nothing happens until you sell something.
In the broader context of your life, this means that nothing happens (not the business you want to start or that trip around the world) until you’re willing to do the work. To take action — no matter how small, just take a step.
So many people think they have to have big dreams. And while it’s great to think big, it can come with a sense of overwhelm!
Can you relate?
But let me tell you this — you don’t have to know how all the pieces of the puzzle will fit together at the end of the day. In fact, you can have a “rough draft” of what you want, without ever needing to know how it will all shake out.
Clarity comes with *action*. You don’t need to have it all figured out — the path reveals itself with every step you’re willing to take. Just take one step at a time.
A dream will remain a dream — the New Year’s resolutions you write out each year will continue to collect dust until you gather the courage and stamina to just… start!
I know, I know — overwhelm is real. The top of the mountain seems dishearteningly high when you’re way down at the bottom.
But let me tell you this…
I used to think that getting to where I am today was impossible…
There was a time where I was stuck inside a life that no longer felt like mine. I was flailing around looking for anything I could grab onto to keep me from drowning. I couldn’t see just how capable I truly was of creating the things I wanted in life.
But, even though there were moments that felt insurmountable, I knew that if I could just gather the gumption to take a step in the right direction — I’d somehow be okay.
And I was more than okay. In fact, I learned that with a little structure, commitment, and a whole lot of faith, I could do pretty much anything I set my mind to in this life…
…and so can you!
SO I’VE BROKEN IT DOWN
With The Do The Thing Formula
This transformative formula is designed to give you the framework you need to pursue those burning desires. Keep this one close as you navigate the waters of your next goal and watch as the magic really unfolds…
So how about it?
Let’s get started by diving into the following Pillars:
IDENTIFY THE “WHY” ✨
When you think about that “big why” for wanting to do the thing…your eyes should well up a little. 🥺
When it comes to leaping into action, it’s not about where you’re going, but where you’re coming from.
Check in with yourself:
- Am I doing this for me or to please others? For accolades, or to be liked?
- Why is this goal SO important to me?
- What would achieving this bring to my life?
- Am I overthinking, or am I in my body? You know it’s the right thing when it touches your heart, not your mind.
- What do I want to feel when I achieve this?
- Who can benefit from what I offer?
Your vision is your ideal future —
And it’s not for anyone else to dictate but YOU.
So it doesn’t need to be perfect, it only needs to be *authentic*.
If you’re doing the thing for the wrong reasons, you might not get the results you really want.
Carve out 15 minutes from your day to sit with the above questions. Give yourself permission to get crystal clear on YOUR reason for doing what you want to do.
Do the thing dare:
Take 3 small steps toward your goal. You don’t need to have everything figured out ahead of time — you just have to start!
Know your minimum viable — what must you absolutely achieve by doing this thing? Stay close to that and let the rest unfold as it will. Remember that imperfect action is better than no action.
I’m not just talking about saying positive affirmations (cause that will only take you so far.)
… I’m talking about identifying the roadblocks that stop you from doing the thing. Rewiring your mind so you don’t find yourself stuck in the same old pattern that limits you.
Your mindset is so important.
Because if you allow your mind to wander all over the place…
You may risk falling victim to the negative (and untrue) chatter it tends to feed you with.
Remember that control is an illusion. It’s not about controlling every thought you have, it’s about making friends with your mind so you can recognize the patterns.
- That said, how comfortable do you feel hanging out with your thoughts?
- Do you have a strong connection to your mind? Can you identify the limiting beliefs keeping you small?
- Does your analysis paralysis keep you from taking action in your life?
- Are you aware of your inner perfectionist wanting to get it “just right” and stalling your process?
- Can you celebrate yourself for all the little wins along the way?
- Can you stay grounded in the fact that it’s not the destination, but the journey?
Some questions to shift your mindset:
- What would happen if I didn’t do this perfectly?
- Who am I really afraid of disappointing?
- What would become possible if I could let go of my limiting beliefs?
Remember: energy flows where attention goes! If you’re constantly thinking things aren’t going your way, you might risk creating more of that in your life.
Do the thing dare:
Befriend your inner critic! Write out your top 5 criticisms and develop a practice of getting comfortable with them.
*BONUS* dare: Quit overthinking! Jump into your next goal by making it as fun as possible and not at all about perfecting the outcome.
Now this might not be what you want to hear…
… but nothing’s going to happen without an aim.
And nothing worth aiming at is happening in your comfort zone.
To truly squeeze the most out of this life, you’ve got to have at least a “rough draft” idea of where you’re trying to go.
And you have to be willing to get a little uncomfortable in the name of bringing that vision to life.
Ask yourself these questions:
What legacy are you looking to leave behind?
What’s the ultimate vision you hold for your life?
How do you want to feel in your day to day life?
Are you willing to push yourself if it means fully experiencing the things you really want?
Do the thing dare:
Make a list of all the projects you want to complete. Pick just *one* that you know you can complete in a day and that doesn’t have tragic consequences if not done “just right.”
Now do that one thing wrong, on purpose! This will help you to see that it doesn’t have to be completely perfect and that there is no failure — only lessons learned!
I’m not just talking about lip service here…
I’m talking about making promises to yourself that you will actually commit to keeping.
How are you setting yourself up to achieve your goals successfully?
Who’s holding you accountable?
Do you have a mentor?
Who can you turn to on those harder days when the motivation just isn’t there?
You can make plans all you want, but accountability is what’s going to get you where you want to go.
If you’re overwhelmed, start small! Take it one step at a time — sign up for the thing you want to do, join that challenge, whatever you do, just start.
Do the thing dare:
Get yourself an accountability buddy! Be it a mentor or a friend — find someone that you can confide in weekly to keep you on track.
Make a public commitment about the thing you are doing. Speaking something out loud makes it real! If you have doubts it not being finished, try saying this: ”if its not completely finished it will still be put out and I will continue building it in public.”
MY PEOPLE 🙌
You know the saying: “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Strong people in your corner means you’re that much more likely to move towards the things you really want.
Do you know who your people are, and how to connect with them?
Do you surround yourself with people who are doing the same things as you? The people who actually want the same things as you?
Who are the people who have overcome even the smallest perfectionist block?
Who has gone before they were ready?
Who’s just *one* step ahead of where you want to be?
Find the people who have overcome their inner critic and take it one step at a time.
Do the thing dare:
Get out there! Go to a networking event, join a challenge, or do something out of your comfort zone where you can find those people that are doing the same thing you want to do.
Knowledge = power!
And once you know what you yearn for, it’s time to set yourself up with the skills it will take to get there.
Nobody knows everything, and almost everything out there, you can learn.
The question is…
Are you asking the right questions, using your resources, and gaining the right tools?
Do you fully take advantage of the courses, mentorships, or any other learning materials available to you?
Want to learn something you see someone else doing? Ask!
Remember, even if you’re just 3 steps ahead of someone else, you’re practically an expert to them! Never underestimate the power of new information and education.
Do the thing dare:
Learn from someone and pass it on!
Don’t wait till you are the expert to teach what you know *right now.*
Chip away at your inner perfectionist by staying in the practice of going before you’re ready! Teach the thing you have learned — remember even if you’re just a few steps ahead of someone they can learn a lot from you.
How did that go? Feel like you’re ready to put some of this work into *action*?
Reminder: all of this is meant to be a process, and you’re about to use all that information to live in alignment with what matters to you the most…
And don’t forget, this is a framework! It’s something you can come back to anytime you need to dust off your inner action taker and get down to it.

Questions To Reveal Your Big “Why”
BECAUSE YOU GOTTA KNOW WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM TO GET WHERE YOU’RE GOING
Say Hello To Your North Star Values 🌟
Your values reveal your deepest motivations. They show you pretty quickly what drives your decisions in life.
Below are some questions to help you get there:
(*Pro-tip* Try writing your answers out on a separate piece of paper, so you can revisit them later)
- What is most important to me?
- What do I love to do with my time?
- What are my natural gifts and talents?
- What can I not live without?
- What do my peers most recognize me for?
Notice anything jumping out at you?
Notice how it’s not so much the things you “ought” to do, but the things you actually love doing that point to what you really value?
Now see if you can spot a couple of words that might better describe the answers you came up with. Do you love helping people? Maybe service is your value — try a couple on and see what fits!
Now what would it look like to honor those values? How would your life change if you let them guide your actions?
LOOK TO THE ONES YOU LOOK UP TO 💖
The ones we admire have clues to give us…
They show us who we strive to be and what qualities we look to embody.
Think of someone you admire and choose five words that describe them…
Do this a few times, and you’ll be moving from your north star values in no time.
“So Who’s the Coach Behind The Curtain?”
Allow Me To Introduce Myself…
Now that we know each other a little better, let me formally introduce myself…
I’m Stacey Lauren CEO, founder, author, podcaster, and true serial entrepreneur.
I’m also the founder of Do The Thing — a multimedia platform that helps people accomplish their big scary goals, move through change, and tackle life’s changes with the DO The Thing Formula.
This process is tried, tested and true. I’ve seen it help people overcome huge obstacles and self limiting beliefs (time and time again) — so they can live into their highest expression in all facets of life!
After spending decades working in the staffing industry, (removing bottlenecks and growing businesses), I learned one key thing that I carry with me to this day:
There are so many different ways you can achieve your best life — but to do it, you have to get out of the stands and take action!
You can’t sit around waiting for life to happen — you just have to get out there and Do The Thing!
During my time working in the staffing industry, I also learned a ton about rejection, resiliency, leadership, and how to build a solid foundation of work ethic that would allow me to become a leader not only in my industry, but in my life.
After years of hard work, I went on to co-found and scale a successful staffing agency — building high-touch relationships to resolve the disconnect between employers and job seekers.
But let’s not go too far down memory lane. I want to tell you how all of these years refining the art of human connection got me right here, living what I believe to be the dream.
All of my experiences taught me something so valuable and rich — and I now get to inspire others to do the same…
Ever stay in a relationship too long? A job or business? I’ve been there.
You see, after finding myself in a bit of an identity crisis (*insert divorce, exiting my company, and looking to forge a new path*), I knew it was time to get uncomfortable.
I needed to start dating and soul searching again, and doing the uncomfortable work of getting vulnerable.
…and let me tell you, it was far from easy.
But you know what I found in the midst of all that discomfort? I found what my heart was truly asking for — underneath all that programming, mind chatter and external pressure.
And once I felt it, I knew I just couldn’t keep my dreams buried any longer. It was time.
But… how? How could I create what I really wanted for my life?
How could I get out of my comfort zone, create something new, and not waste precious decades of my life being stuck in the same patterns and getting the same results?
That’s when I got curious. Curious about how other people had finally done the thing they longed to do.
…and that’s exactly how the “Do The Thing” podcast came to be.
Here’s the thing: You know what’s really in your heart. The thing that would make all the difference in the world if you could just say it out loud and bring it to life.
Some of us promise ourselves that someday we’ll go for it. We wait for the day we have enough time, enough money, enough willpower or support or courage or connections to give us a fighting chance at doing the thing.
I’m here to tell you that today is your day.
Don’t wait another minute to do the things you’ve been waiting your whole life to do! Now that you’re here, I’ll be right there next to you with support, resources, and actionable steps to help you to stop waiting and start “doing the thing.”
