Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast

There’s a lot of talk in the business and coaching world (and let’s face it, in most other worlds as well) about growing your business and getting to your goal as fast as possible.

Isn’t that what we all want? To just GET there already?

I find myself impatient with my business, wishing I knew more, which way to take things and how to figure it all out.

But then I think about how long some people go to school to become hireable in their fields—2, 4, even 8+ years sometimes. And how long most musicians or actors take to get their big break.

It’s not their lack of confidence that holds them back, it’s their commitment to the process, their willingness to evolve into the person who gets the job or lands the role.

When I started entertaining the idea of becoming a coach, I never really considered that to help people the way I wanted, I’d not only have to become a skilled coach, but also figure out how to create, run and market a whole business.

I started this thing from scratch. No pre-made business plan, no establishment to take on my liability. Just an idea to create “A coaching business that helps women build the confidence, skills and support network to take on any adventure, on a trail or in life.”

That’s not to say I haven’t had plenty of help along the way, but this isn’t something that exists on every corner—I’ve put my own spin on it.

It’s taken time to figure out what I, and the women I serve, want and need from Wild Woman Coaching—I’m definitely still figuring it out.

It’s not a lack of confidence or belief in myself that’s stopped me from building my business faster. It’s a commitment to testing, rethinking, and exploring possibilities before fully committing to a direction.

I feel clearer than ever about how I want to help women become their wildest, most adventurous selves, but I couldn’t have gotten here if I had sold out on my earliest (not best) ideas.

All this is to say, there’s value in facing your fears, putting yourself out there and failing forward. But there’s also immense value in slowing down, experimenting and trusting the process.
