Today I am taking over my husband Jacob Morgan’s newsletter. For years Jacob has advocated for me, coached me, and allowed me to stand on his platform to build my own.
He is a true partner. My name is Blake and I am Jacob’s wife.
If you follow Jacob you know that for more than a year together we’ve been working on building a business to help people learn how to do what I did - go from working for a corporation to learning how to start your own successful business.
Jacob and I have launched a podcast called the Be Your Own Boss Podcast.
BYOB has allowed me to explore topics I’m deeply passionate about - because I personally have changed so much in the last 10–15 years. I went from being a very shy, nervous individual into a seven figure entrepreneur. On stages I’ve spoken to thousands and thousands of people - my biggest event will be in June of 2021 for 20K people for a popular event called Million Dollar Round Table.
This is a video I made to speak directly to women about my own fears, and how I overcame them. If you want more content like this, please subscribe to our Youtube channel.
I was recently ranked as one of the top 40 female keynote speakers in the world by Real Leaders Magazine. I’m still shocked that my job is professional speaker - after all I used to want to cry if ever called on in a meeting. That was humiliating - but now I’m the same person, but I’ve evolved.
It’s incredibly hard to make that leap from having a boss to being self-employed. The change was needing someone to give me work, to going out and hunting the work down on my own - enjoying it, and excelling at it. If I can do it, I know you can too.
That said, I hope my story can inspire other people - but I also want to speak directly to girls and women. I believe that the limiting messages we tell women - that hold them back - starts very early. My goal is to help girls and women achieve their full potential, and I intend to do that by sharing more of my own transformation.
Please watch this video and - if your’e comfortable with it - share it with your friends, family and community. Helping a lot of people starts with one person listening to your message and saying, “YES!”
