Have you ever been at a place in your life where you knew you were ready to take the next step? You knew hiring a coach to help uplevel your business could be needed in order to take that leap of faith and to further expand and grow as a person and in your business? I feel I am at that place right now and have been searching for a coach or mentor to be just the right fit. - - BUT...how will you know if someone is the right fit? Time to listen to your GUT! Your intuition will tell you if something feels right or if it doesn’t. - - I was recently really excited about possibly joining a coaching group for my business and a lot of the members had been hyping this program up to me quite a bit. I decided to call to apply to the program and let me tell you, it was probably one of the worst experiences I’ve had in a long time. - - If you are hesitant or all over the place about making a decision, there’s a reason. Please don’t let sleazy salesmen pressure you into signing up for something or use lies and manipulation to make you feel bad about yourself all just to get your money. - - If they say you are the only one they have ever given this deal to, it’s BS. If they say it’s one price but bc you are so special you can have it at 50% off if you sign up right now, it’s probably BS. And don’t sign up with people if they don’t listen to you. If you are telling a sales person pretty much word for word what you need in order to make the sale with you and they still treat you as a number rather than an actual human being, SAY NO! If they say they are being totally transparent with you, they are lying. If it feels like a gimmick, it most likely is. - - If anything at all feels off to you or if there are red flags popping up, it’s not right for you. It is so important to learn how to trust yourself and to stay 100% true to you. - - Maybe they will tell you it makes it seem as though you aren’t an action taker, but why take action on something that feels off?
WOMEN: READ FOR YOUR SAFETY!! . While I’m excited about my Costco finds, this is about my experience while shopping. . I posted this in a group, but decided to post on my page, too, because a lot of people are saying it’s either happened to them, too, or happened to someone they know. . We were at the Maplewood Costco around noon and noticed a guy, not quite 6’ in a black North Face (I believe) jacket, mid 30s-early 40s, light hair, no cart, wandering aimlessly. I swear this man was following me until I texted my uncle, who thankfully met us there anyway, to find me because of it. I was buying a laptop when I initially got there, and I feel like he was around electronics quite a while during that time. As I continued shopping, he was behind me an aisle down, I skipped an aisle, he went two down from that one. Never saw him actually looking at anything, and he had looked toward where I was from two aisles down. Didn’t run into him again once my uncle came hurriedly to me. He did go near the end of the aisle we were in, but quickly turned around, suddenly with an empty cart. . At Costco, everyone checks most aisles out, right? So we frequently bump into each other several aisles in a row, but we all have carts, items are added to it, and it’s not creepy... But I could feel that this was off... My gut was telling me to not continue to be alone. I’m so thankful my mom’s plans today were cancelled and I mentioned I was going. She then decided to go, too, and she told my uncle, who decided to meet us there. Had that not happened, I would’ve been alone with my 4 year old with this guy following me around. 😫 . If this happens to you, DO NOT feel crazy and refuse asking for help. Although, instead of asking someone to walk you to your car, where dude can then see what you drive, ask someone to stop him as you’re leaving and say he’s been accused of stealing or something. Anything to stop him from seeing where you’re going. Better yet, do both -
