Stop Over-Thinking and Just Start

“Where do I start? I feel overwhelmed, and have no idea how to do it.”

Social Curator user Amanda had tears in her eyes as she asked me this question. 

Have you been there? Are you there right now? Can you relate to her feelings of overwhelm, frustration, and anxiety? 

If you’ve ever been where Amanda is, or perhaps you’re navigating those feelings today, allow me to share the exact advice I gave to her:

You know that business you want to start, that course you want to create, the podcast you want to record, the blog you want to write, the Reel you want to film? 

Whatever it is that’s on your heart, right this moment…


How to Just Start

The only thing stopping you is, well, you.

Listen, I get it. You can list a million reasons why there are others who are more talented, qualified, or smarter than you but guess what? They're not you. 

>>YOU have a gift to share with the world, so do it. JUST START.<<

You may have tears in your eyes, anxiety in your gut, and feel like the Hot Mess Express, but guess what? 

Those feelings are surfacing because you are passionate about what you want to do, and what you want out of life.

You are not a hot mess. You are a dreamer. Now it’s time to DO.

It’s ok if you don't know where to start, but it’s not ok to give up on yourself. 

Just start. 

  • Start where you are.
  • Use what you have.
  • Do what you can.

Just start. 

  • Be better than your past self. 
  • Be bolder than your excuses. 
  • Be braver than your circumstance. 

Just start. 

  • If you want to start a business, start today. 
  • If you want to film your first Reel, film today.
  • If you want to create a course, create today. 
  • If you want to be one step closer to your dream, take one step forward… today. 

If you want to empower, educate, and/or entertain, your progress is not found in your dream, it’s found in the action you are willing to take. 

Perfection? Throw it out the window. It doesn’t serve you or your business. 

Comparison? Let. It. Go. That person or business that is living the dream you want didn’t get there overnight. They aren’t special (no matter what it looks like on social media)

The assumptions that say others are more educated, privileged, or luckier than you are an excuse. They simply took action: messy, scrappy, imperfect action. 

The only thing stopping you is you. So… 


Trust your crazy ideas.

Embrace not having all the answers.

Chase after failure, because that’s where you’ll find success.

Everything that you need to accomplish your dream is inside you. 

How do you “Just start?” Great question:

  • If you want to empower, start uplifting by sharing an inspirational quote.
  • If you want to educate, start teaching by featuring an insight you’ve learned. 
  • If you want to entertain, start creating by filming a fun Reel. 

I have learned and progressed the most in my life and business when I show up-without all the answers or resources-and just start.

This is me, (lovingly) calling you out: 

  • Stop the excuses. 
  • Stop the comparison. 
  • Stop the perfection. 

What you want IS possible. What you want CAN happen. Your dream is waiting…
