Don’t listen to self-doubt – anyone can live an abundant life.
Caitlin Pyle is an entrepreneur who started out as a freelance proofreader and, just three years ago, had zero knowledge about marketing and product creation. Now Caitlin and her husband Ben (also a Foundation alumni) manage BCP Media, a multi-million dollar media company with multiple blogs and digital products, including the site that started it all, Proofread Anywhere.
Caitlin’s life mission is to help hardworking people worldwide develop the success-oriented mindset and skills they need to generate income, from anywhere, online.
In This Interview I Ask:
Mindset: What a Difference Three Years Make
“I look at skills as the real job security. If you can create your own income, you’re way better off than someone who depends on a job for income.”
Three years ago, Caitlin looked at earning money as something for other people. Seeing other people get money made her feel bad because it felt like there was less for her – it was a scarcity mindset that limited her.
This mindset still comes back from time to time, when she is on the precipice of something she never thought would be possible – but, every time, she has smashed through that barrier and life continues to get more abundant.
Real, Limitless Job Security
“We can create our own job security by learning new skills. The more skills you have, the more income you can generate – there really is no limit to it.”
Now Caitlin realizes that there is an almost endless well of opportunity in the world, especially online, if we learn to leverage our skills and make our own income.
Start by reflecting on where you are right now: what gets you excited? Chase the thing that excites you, find people who are doing that, and learn from them.
Don’t try to chase the big picture. Keep your focus on the step that is immediately in front of you, accomplish those smaller tasks, and then the big picture won’t look so impossible or overwhelming.
