Biggest wins? -- Definitely community. Just like, realizing that I didn't have do all this shit alone has been so powerful and motivating. This has been the perfect colleague collection, I am so thankful for all you for that. I've definitely grown in my confidence from this group.
Community brings inspiration,
impromptu brainstorming sessions,
collaboration and better ideas!
You saw things in me that I didn't...
"When I wrote about my vision in the first blueprint was just wishful thinking.
Over the past months, doing the work for the blueprints, the training, the conversations, the support from all of you; all of it, piece by piece, gave me the confidence I never had. You saw things in me that I didn't...
My vision isn't just some impossible pipe-dream anymore and if I start doing what I've learnt; if I believe the way you do, I can make this happen and that's what is really exciting."
I got a lot of clarity on my offer, a lot of clarity on my ideal client, I feel a lot more confident this year about who I'm trying to work with.
underpaid and undervalued
doubling her revenue.
Just before the Accelerator I was only ever earning, like, $2-$2.5K. But then within these last four months I was able to hit $4K and now I’m just shy of $6K.
So, it was a pretty big win, especially because beforehand. I was only ever capped at $2.5K because I was working with people who didn’t value me, but after interacting with all of you and then seeing what was actually possible, it broke that ceiling for me.
My biggest win is definitely confidence in myself. When I started I almost quit in my first month... I thought, "all these people have their shit together and I don't,"... but I learned very quickly that I could do all these things.
"...I’m on the right path. Prior to the Accelerator, I’ve heard about all those tactics: the pricing, the marketing and all that stuff, but it was all kind of in bits and pieces.
There's also a tonne of opinions and options to consider and just to weigh; and it was just a little overwhelming.
So the Accelerator gave me a framework to work within, but it also allows you creativity."
The trust that I've managed to build up with the others in the Accelerator, it's meant a lot to me.
And it's tied in with helping me build my brand in a niche in two different ways... getting that clarity has given me confidence.
Sara's win was mindset...
It's not scary to pitch clients and she feels she can actually talk to people, using her communications background to get clients.
She use to just rely on her network and wait to get clients, but not anymore!
