Here’s a selection of issues all women entrepreneurs struggle with from time to time, that ALL can be solved with the same 2-words:

“How do I know what step to take next?”

“I’m scared of ……, what can I do?”

“I feel so overwhelmed, I don’t know where to start!”

“How can I stay focused?”

“What’s the best way to handle this issue?”

“I’m not sure what to do.”


We all deal with issues like this from time to time. I certainly do. And I bet you’re struggling with one (or more) of them right now.


Before I give you the 2-word solution that helps you solve it, let’s take a look at what most women do first – which is something you should actually do LAST:

They start looking for knowledge, answers, advice and direction from other people or sources like books, articles, programs, etc.

Yes, it’s a good idea to ask for help and yes, it’s a good idea to make sure you have the knowledge you need to be able to make a decision.


But it’s NOT the best place the start.

The BEST thing to do can be summed up in two little words:

Go within.

Take the time to explore and examine what’s going on inside you.

Take the time to connect to your own inner wisdom.

Take the time to connect to all the thoughts, feelings, stories, expectations, and assumptions that are connected to your issue or question.

They cloud your judgment and stand in the way of finding your answer.

The answers you seek are already present – and you have access to them if you take the time to GO WITHIN.


And it’s not just answers you find there.

Need more courage? Go within.

Need more confidence? Go within.

Need more focus? Guess what: GO WITHIN.


Here’s how you do this:

Think of an issue you seek an answer for.

THINK about it, FEEL into it, and NOTICE what you feel / think / assume / expect / believe when it comes to this issue.

Be completely honest – without judging yourself!!!

And take the time to write it all down.


The moment you do this, you WILL find clarity and answers for 99% of all your issues and questions – and on what it takes to solve or improve them.

All that’s left next is to actually DO the thing you now know is your best next step.


Still not sure what to do after you’ve gone within? Need additional help, feedback, or knowledge?

Go get it. Ask for help, advice and feedback.

But always AFTER you first went within.

The more you get to know and understand yourself, the easier it is to find the answers and clarity you need.

The easier it is to fully trust yourself.

And the easier it is to do what’s right for YOU, without getting distracted by other people’s advice, opinions, feedback and ideas.
