How your teaching identity is keeping you broke in business
Manage episode 346617170 series 3401317
This is probably one of my favourite topics to talk about: identity work and how it can truly change the game in your business.
There is a big internal shift that needs to take place as you evolve from being an educator who earns from a boss, to being an edupreneur who earns for themselves. Not only do you have to build new skills, but you have to step into a new version of you that can run a profitable business.
You have to start identifying as a business owner and CEO, not "just a teacher". This can be one of the biggest blocks in scaling your business.
It doesn't matter how much strategy you have, your teacher identity and energy that you bring will shape your results in business (and often sabotage them).
In this episode, I share my story of how I had to really step into my CEO self and let go of old ''teacher'' identity for me to rise up in my business. I will show you how your energy will trump strategy over and over again, and that strategy cannot outperform a poor mindset and 'struggling/ victim' identity.
You are going to learn:
- How important the way you perceive yourself / identify yourself is in your business success.
- How 'just a teacher' identity is most likely going to sabotage your success and cause repeat cycles that you don't want.
- How your identity and your 'beingness' is more important than your 'doing'.
Tips on how to start shifting your identity from ''I am just a teacher'' to ''I'm a badass CEO and entrepreneur who makes their own money''. And how this can transform your business results.
