Do Your Goals Match Your Level of Believability?
On exploring your beliefs, writing what lights you up, and a small product launch!
Hi friends & new subscribers,
Happy happy Tuesday!
My last newsletter got an open rate of 53%, which means that half of you that received my newsletter opened it (and hopefully read it).
I hope you learned something new about yourself — like the downsides of upper limiting. While I was so busy "upper limiting" myself in the last two months, the past two weeks have been amazing. In the last two weeks, I've been able to get amazing results:
Someone booked a consultation call for $99 from me (after I put out a random YT video)
Someone bought my Notion template for writers for $2 (after they saw the same YT video)
I created a small but really meaningful digital product for multipassionate creators and made $20 (for now ;))
Don't worry, there's a point to all of this. I'm not just bragging about my results with you. Even though I've managed to make $10,000+ in my first year as a creator, making $120 from these activities was even more meaningful for me.
Before we explore how this happened, we have to talk about your level of believability when it comes to reaching realistic goals.
Do Your Goals Match Your Level of Believability?
At the beginning of this year, I set a goal to make a six-figure this year.
I knew that I could reach the six-figure mark if I did high-revenue activities, such as freelancing or travel nursing.
The only problem was that I didn't want to do more of those.
Since September, I'm still with the same two freelance clients I've gotten, and I don't intend to look for new ones. And I'm still debating whether to go back to nursing.
What I really want is to make six figures producing my own product and services.
That's where my level of believability came crashing down. I didn't really believe I could make $8K/month ($100,000/year) by selling digital products, especially when I keep putting things out for free. Last year, I had 30+ zoom calls advising new creators. As I made resources and templates, I also gave them for free (and let people buy me a coffee) ☕️.
But I knew that if I wanted to become the online entrepreneur I'm wishing for, I would need to start charging people. No matter how scary it is.
And because I couldn't believe I could make $8K/month selling products or services, I lowered my level of believability to $1. I told myself, "I need to make my first $ selling my own services or products." This time, I believed it.
Ideas kept coming to me in the past two weeks, and I kept taking action. And then suddenly, I was getting random but amazing results. I believed I could make $1, and I managed to manifest $120. How cool is that?
When you genuinely believe that you can do something, that's when you take action to reach the goal you want. So if you're having difficulty reaching your goal, maybe you need to lower your level of believability?
Or explore by asking yourself," why don't I believe I can do this?"
🧚 3 Fairy Tips for Multipassionate Creators
[On Writing] Write the content that lights you up. Don't be one of those creators who only write because it's trendy or good for the algorithm. Always follow the interest that lights you up. When you're lit up by what you're talking about, people can feel it. And those are the most potent writing out there.
[On Freelancing] If your goal isn't to become a full-time freelancer, find 2 - 3 clients that appreciate your work and be willing to pay for your rates. In January, I made $2,500 (revenue) working for a total of 30 hours. (For context, I made $3,000 working 75 hours per month as a part-time nurse). I spent the rest of my time on projects that excite me even more (i.e. YouTube, creating digital products). Am I financially poorer? Yes. Am I living a richer life? Absolutely.
[On Life] When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. Paulo Coelho, the best-selling author of The Alchemist, said that. I genuinely believe that. If you want something SO bad, the universe will help you get there.
✨ Latest Work on the Internet ft. Product launch!
Here are the things I published online in the past two weeks (if you’re curious). I think it'll be useful for you:
🎥 My Writing Workflow on Notion (the simple workflow that helped me publish over 100+ articles online)
📦 Product Launch: The Digital Workbook for Multipassionate Creators
This is an MVP (minimum viable product) of what I want to create for multipassionate creators. It's a workbook that guides how to show up online as yourself, especially if you have multiple interests in real life. And you don't want to "niche down."
It was the product I wish I'd had at the beginning of my journey.
It includes 10+ journal prompts diving into your motivation and goals. We tap into your uniqueness and make it an anchor for creating online.
It includes challenging exercises that'll help you pick which platforms to use and produce content (even with multiple interests) in your own way.
It has a mini-lesson and exercises on ways to monetize as a multipassionate creator (when you're ready).
If you're curious what it's about, here's more info.
If you know someone who'd benefit from it, share it with them.
A gift for you: 🎁 : 50% off for the Roaming Heart subscribers (discount code: beta50). I'd give it for free, but I find that most people (including myself) don't take free products seriously.
🤔 A question for you this week:
What are your current beliefs when it comes to making money online? And how can you change your beliefs to make your circumstances work for you?
With online love 💌 ,
P.S. As always, let me know how things are working out (or not working out) for you. I'd love to help.
