Jennifer, we totally share that limiting belief! I too tend to feel things aren’t good enough, even after being told they are. This has froze me many times as well. I’ve also done the ‘if I build it, they will come.’ Thank you for sharing! Here’s to releasing limiting beliefs!
Holding space for both of you ladies to let these beliefs go.
YES – validating is nerve racking and can be scary.
YES – it’s also super important and could save you hundreds of hours and tons of money in the end.
The purpose of validation is NOT to get rich, it’s to make sure that what you’re thinking is in alignment with what your audience is needing. When you pitch it right, the peopel will sign up and be sooo excited and grateful to be on the early adopters list. That and it gives you a motivated kick in the pants to get creating!
It’s also a great way to enroll potential creative partners.
If you have X number of sales, you could go to someone and say, “Hey, i’ve got X sales for my pre-launch. If you help me create this program using your skills and me using mine, I’ll give you X% of that pre-sales money and X% of all the sales once the program goes live.”
Plenty of reasons to validate.
Breathe deep into your power and share that offering!
