Sunday, I started something. I became an Independent Consultant for Jamberry Nails, a direct sales company. I ordered my kit that night and was so excited, I thought I would burst! Tonight, I’m ready to throw in the towel because I am so afraid that I’m failing already.
It has been 48 hours.
The real way to fail, I know, is to quit. I don’t want to give in to that. But I am freaking out already. I am doing research, learning more and more about the business and the product. But I’m scared I don’t know enough, I’m not a good enough salesperson.
J says: I’m still new, I’m still learning.
I tell my students on a regular basis that it’s okay to be a learner – we are all learners. Even I am a learner. I have the perfect opportunity to prove this! But here I am: wanting to quit when things get hard! Two days in.
I am scared and anxious.
When designing my About page for the Jamberry website, I wrote my favorite quote was: “You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” –Eleanor Roosevelt
Well… time to do that, I guess.
