[Kathryn]: I am super stoked to have Kacia on the show today to share how to love the process and develop the confidence needed to navigate the entrepreneurship space. So to kick things off, what’s the secret sauce to achieving success in entrepreneurship?
[Kacia]: I think it's the process that’s guaranteed, not the outcome. So I've been able to really detach from where it's going to go and getting too caught up on some arbitrary milestone that I'm waiting to reach to feel proud of myself. It’s learning to love the process because the outcomes aren’t guaranteed. And cultivating confidence is the foundation to this.
[Kathryn]: So what would you say to somebody on how you develop this confidence?
[Kacia]: Yeah, I think for me cultivating confidence is a dance between a micro focus, and then a big macro vision. So the microfocus is so simple. It's like what do I need to do today to win the day, but also not comparing yourself. This is why learning to love the process is so important. We can dream big and set our eyes on the macro but knowing it takes micro-focus to win each day. It’s the microfocus that keeps you grounded.
[Kathryn]: When you talk about getting back up quickly, for some people, it's hard to get back up quickly, or they don't even know how to get the hell back, what would you say to them?
[Kacia]: I don't so I think a lot of people talk about comparison where they say don't compare yourself to other people. And I just don't think that's possible. As humans, we're designed to want to belong. So we're gonna compare ourselves to other people. It’s part of the process. This is what I mean when I say learn to love the process. It’s not meant for all love, but it’s also the uncomfortable parts too.
[Kathryn]: I believe in order to love the process is part of celebrating the wines. How can we celebrate ourselves more, stop for a moment, and actually do that?
[Kacia]: Yes. I crush it when it comes to celebrating! The celebration also builds confidence because we see how far we’ve come. More importantly, it helps us appreciate the process and learn to love it. I've actually lost two friends at age 30. You don't have to lose someone close to you, although a lot of us probably have to recognize that our days are numbered here.
[Kathryn]: I know in my first foray into entrepreneurship, I wanted the results but I was overworking. It was like the business was my life. And I don't have time for anything else. I definitely didn’t love the process.
[Kacia]: I actually just closed down one portion of my business. We had a membership community, and it was generating like $18,000 a month. And it was pretty passive. But it required me to be on these zoom calls at night. And it wasn’t in alignment with what I wanted anymore. That is why having the confidence to switch or pivot is so important. Knowing that it’s part of the process to learn to let things go and not have the certainty of what is coming next.
[Kathryn]: So what would you say to someone to help them release the control and let go and trust the process? I feel like this is all part of learning to love the process. Because nothing is guaranteed.
[Kacia]: Honestly think back to your life when you wanted something to work out that didn't, that you realize it actually turned out even better. This is the epitome of learning to love the process. You get to figure things out in the crazy entrepreneurship journey. And it’s having the confidence to know that things will work out.
[Kathryn]: I totally agree that confidence is the key foundational piece because it helps us navigate uncertainty. It’s been a pleasure having you on today, to share with my listeners how to learn to love the process and cultivate confidence in the entrepreneurship space.
