I recently set my students an accountability challenge with a tight deadline in my Grow With Challenges course – and I have them ready to share with you today!
Can Running Free Challenges Work for Everyone?
Yes! Free challenges can absolutely work for all kinds of humans, not just the super outgoing and confident ones (which I don’t class myself as), which is why I created my course on the subject. I had a story that it’d take too much energy to run free challenges. But good preparation + a short burst of energy = a powerful AND fun experience for me and my audience.
Honestly, free challenges have been the perfect way to grow my audience and really connect with my right people, and they’ve also become a really powerful part of my launch strategy. But I had to figure out my own way of doing them, which I share in that course. Remember, you also get to do this your way. You set the rules. (But I encourage you to stretch your comfort zone, as it can become easy quite quickly even if you’re nervous at first!)
