Don’t break your pot …

Set yourself up for success before you stretch

“Your business will only grow as much as you do” 

That means …

You’ve gotta grow YOU so you can grow your business.  

I’m not talking height here. 

Nor size. 

Not more cake. 

Nope, not chocolate either.


Imagine YOU as a plant. 

You live in a pot. 

The pot you live in is a combination of your mindset, your beliefs, your actions, your choices, your decisions; all held together by your support team.  Those people who you are closest to. 

You are the average of the 5 people you spent most time with

Jim Rohn

Those people you are closest to are essentially the glaze on the outside of your pot, your support structure.  

When you’re growing a plant in a pot, the plant will only grow as large as the pot allows it to. 

The plant’s capacity to grow is limited by the size of the pot. 

If the plant did continue growing in its original pot it would break the pot, crack the glaze, and sabotage its efforts to grow as without the pot the plant endangers its continued existence. 

Once the pot breaks, the plant doesn’t have a supportive environment to continue growing or even existing in. 

Same for you. 

Your capacity to grow is limited by the size of your pot; your mindset, your beliefs, your actions, your choices, your decisions and your support people. 

When you stretch any of those, you grow you and then you are empowered to grow your business. 

Truth is you’re stronger and more able to grow when you have suitable support in place.  When your close circle are people who are growing and stretching themselves so they are empowered to support you as you grow and stretch. 

Personally, I’ve grown so much more within a conscious community of choice than trying to do it all alone.  I’ve achieved so much more when I’ve allowed myself to receive coaching and accountability from others.  

Super important piece of advice that I wish I’d known years ago …

Always ensure you have support so you set yourself up for success when you stretch and grow.   


I’ve opened up some spots on my calendar so you can pick my brains, ask me anything you want and receive some guidance as to what is your best next step for right now.  

Your only investment is your time.  

Let’s do this!  I’m excited to speak with your soon and help identify your very best next step.
