Do you feel like you need permission to say that you have an idea worth committing to? Are you trying to prove to yourself and others that you have value? Imagine how free you would feel if those thoughts weren’t holding you back.
Today’s guest, Melissa Webb, felt like she needed permission. She even asked for my permission, and you know what I told her? Of course you have my permission but you don’t NEED it. Lifting that mindset block changed everything. She went from trying to please everyone and doing way too much, to offering a simplified service to an audience she truly wanted to serve.
Melissa creates online writing communities to support and encourage families in home education. She is the owner and creator of Write On! Melissa is a published children’s book author and a co-host on The Mel & Kel Show podcast.
Melissa is a former teacher who left the classroom to start an online business teaching writing to home school teachers. I asked her to join me today to share her journey from making money as a side hustle to going full time with her business, and the struggles that she’s faced along the way.
