In business, I have done my share of crazy things but this one is by far the craziest and scariest thing I’ve done. I wanted to attend a business conference so bad, that I had to scrape up every penny that I had. Here is the breakdown, I had maybe thirty dollars to my name and I had to catch a flight, which I bought the tickets as a special so I wouldn’t know what time my flight leaves until I paid for it.  Well, My mama bought my plane ticket for exactly $333.00 and when I tell you I was the happiest gal on the block. If you lived close to me, you probably would have heard me a mile away screaming and doing my happy dance.

Here’s where it gets crazy! I almost missed my flight because of construction. We left three hours ahead of time but was stuck in delayed traffic for two of those hours. I barely had enough time to do anything by the time I made it to the airport, my flight was boarding. I remember like it was yesterday; I was running in heels with the security guard, now imagine this, I’m out of breath, trying to be cute because the security guy was cute; but boy, I was out of breath. When I did get to my seat on the plane, I had to use the bathroom, so I went to the bathroom and wouldn’t you know it, I got stuck in the bathroom, so I’m screaming at the top of my lungs, cause me and small spaces don’t do well together.  Then the bad part is I ended up staying at the airport bathroom because no one was available so they say to pick me up. It was midnight when I arrived at this city where I knew nobody. Yes, I was a scared somebody.

Here’s what I learned about myself:

  • I was determined to get to an event that would change my life. I was uncomfortable and scared. I had thirty dollars to my name and that’s it.
  • Even, though it wasn’t the most exciting and pleasant experience, I’m glad I went because I would never have met one of my favorite mentors: Les Brown
  • I took my doubts and fears and kicked them out the window and went anyway.
  • Finally, I took a chance on me

What’s keeping you from doing something that you know you need to do to help you grow as a person and as a business owner? You will never know what you are made of until you push yourself outside of your comfort zone. I want to invite you to take a chance on you this week and invest in your dreams.
