Success Tips That Got Me to Half a Million

Want to know how to make a million dollars?

Then hang onto your hats (or head scarves), because I’m about to get real real with you, my darling!…. But first: a confession.

Now, this might shock some of you, but the #entrepreneurlife isn’t always as glamorous as it looks on Instagram, with the fancy hot tubs and endless flowing champagne and insane views of the Eiffel Tour. (What can I say? I just love France!) I know, right? Shocker.

In fact, I once heard Gary Vee say that if you’re going to become an entrepreneur, you better be prepared to eat crap everyday. (Although I’m pretty sure he didn’t use the word “crap,” if you catch my drift.)

And let’s be real: Eating crap sounds like the complete opposite of glamorous. But it’s so true: Life as an entrepreneur sometimes means just doing what you gotta do...even if it’s not cute. Or fun. Or even lucrative at first (I’m looking at you, Instagram posts!).

For me when I just started my business, “doing what you gotta do” looked like plopping myself down on my cold bathroom tile floor – even in my prettiest dresses, because yes, I am the person who dolls up for client calls because #vibes – and doing what I needed to.

It looked like charging $27/coaching session because I didn’t quite know my worth yet. It looked like crying me eyes next to the toilet after another no on a discovery call. It looked like contemplating selling my engagement ring to be able to invest in my business...

But looking back now? My 7-figure business started with half a million mark that I crossed at 18 months. And till today that milestone feels like the biggest one. So all those nights on the bathroom floor, all the tears and self-doubt, in retrospect? Seem so, so worth it!

But I get it. You’ve got such lofty goals and audacious dreams and a vision board that includes a mansion and a yacht and of course, a closet full of Valentino and Gucci (just me?).

So, maybe you don’t love where you’re at right now because it feels so far away from your true desires.

Maybe your work feels hard, or tedious, or you know, like eating crap everyday – aka the furthest thing from glamorous.

Well, there IS some good news, gorgeous because in today’s brand new champagne soiree episode, I’m giving you my top success hacks to making a million dollars online.

So, you want to know how to REALLY make a million dollars online, lovely? Well, you get started by starting. Seriously: Just start. Somewhere. Anywhere! Even if it’s your bathroom floor.

But here’s what I want you to know:

It probably WON’T look glamorous or feel super easy most days. Especially at first.

But that’s where commitment comes in.

You’re going to have to constantly remind yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing. Like, every day. Even if you LOVE what you’re doing! There WILL be times you want to quit. To throw in the monogrammed towel and head back to corporate.

But there will ALSO be times where you’ll get to sip bubbly while soaking in a hot tub, or nom on pastries while savoring a mid-afternoon picnic in front of the Eiffel Tour. (Or whatever your uber-glamorous equivalent is.) So every day, I want you to take a pause and remind yourself what you’re working toward.

I want you to keep your goals out in front of you–and don’t you ever waver. Watch this video every day. Bookmark it. Set a reminder on your phone to re-watch it. Boomerang yourself an email with the link in it.

Do what you have to do to keep these very important, millionaire-making hacks in mind.

‘Cause trust me, friend: If I can make a million dollars in my business–given my humble, beginnings as a girl from Ukraine who legit was scared to open her mouth and worked from her bathroom floor – I know you can, too.….Even if you have to work from the bathroom floor, too. ;)

(Just make sure to do it in your cutest dresses. Obviously. ;) )

Love you,
