It was 2003, and I was just starting my business. I had a teen-aged daughter, and some savings on which to live. But that spring, the savings were dwindling, significantly. We had only a couple of months left to live on.
My Plan B was to go get a job if I needed to, but only if absolutely necessary. Building a business was way harder than I had realized and I just wasn’t getting clients in very much. Every now and then someone would come, but it wasn’t happening with any kind of frequency or consistency.
One day, I decided to go to Kelly Girls and take their myriad of tests to see what software I was proficient in. (Not many.) I spent a week there that afternoon. It felt like torture!
When I left, the girl behind the desk looked up at me with a smile and said “Oh, sorry. You’ll need to come back and do this again. Our system crashed and we lost all of your test data.”
Oh, hell NO! Talk about a sign!
I left that afternoon with a resolve inside that sounded like this “I will do anything to make my business work. Anything!”
I had wanted to write an article for our local holistic newspaper but I was confused about what to write and afraid of the paper rejecting it. I tapped. Then I wrote the article and sent it. And the paper published it.
I had wanted to talk about tapping to a group of people, but I’d been afraid to ask if I could do that. I tapped. Then I asked. And the answer was yes.
And so on.
Within two weeks of that awful afternoon, I got three long-term clients. All three of them came frequently and stayed with me long after I left Charlottesville in 2006.
And from that point on, clients began to show up. Consistently. Because I began to show up and market my little fledgling business. Consistently.
This is the power of tapping. This is the power of a decision.
