Whilst I was recording a new podcast episode with Mackenzie today, we stumbled across an interesting topic. Basically, in our newest podcast episode of Once Around The World, we talk about our own money mindset and how you can resolve some issues regarding it. If you do not shift your mind towards openness when it comes to receiving monetary energy, you might never dive into the realm of profitability with your own business ventures. For me, there are definitely a couple of thought processes which I cling onto that I still have to unlearn. More on that in the newest podcast episode of Once Around The World, though.
Talking about this principle of the right money mindset in order to create something profitable to sustain yourself and to be able to continue to create valuable content, I revealed the fact that I sometimes or even often doubt the value of what I create.
I so frequently hear accredited people with thousands of degrees saying: “Do not listen to this person when she talks about food, she has never studied it or do not listen to that person when he talks about marketing, he has not worked in an actual agency.” Additionally, ever so often people tell me after your Masters, you need to work for someone else first before starting your own business in order to succeed. Who actually has the right to judge that?
Isn’t self-study equally as valid? Honestly, University is great to help me to evolve on a personal and thought process level. However, most of my actual skills, I have acquired by doing, creating and getting involved in the hands-on matter. I would consider myself knowledgeable in plant-based living, non-toxic cosmetics, luxury, fashion and digital marketing. The knowledge for these subjects, I have acquired predominantly on my own. Doesn’t it make sharing it even more valid since it so human and unique and also so tried and tested as it is working for me? Surely, it might not work for you but which textbook works for us all? I don’t believe there is a single one out there that does.
It might be time to get over that doubt. One step at a time. Your knowledge is valuable. What you create is of value. Just put your all into it and find the right people to match your creations. We are in this together.
