The Important Benefits Of Staying In Your Own Lane


Why is it that we as women are always beating up ourselves even when we know we are doing the best we can?

The other day I was having a conversation with a friend and I was sharing with her that I was feeling defeated. It just seems like everything I try to do I’m always 10 steps behind although I’m busting my ass every. Single. Day. 

I wanted to QUIT.

I wanted to throw in the towel and GIVE UP.

Although I am the one to typically keep my blinders on and stay in my own lane I have found it challenging when I see that other people are out here killing it.  As my friend would say, no tea, no shade. I want nothing more than for other women to succeed and secure ALL the bags. But I can’t help but think will I ever be good enough? Will I ever be the one to make an impact on other women they way they have an impact on me? I don’t know why I get sad and discouraged when I know I’m doing all that I can.

The Important Benefits Of Staying In Your Own Lane-Tiffany D. Brown


I don’t have a team.

It’s just me.

A one-woman show.

With a husband and THREE kids.

To put that into perspective for you, I have a website, YouTube channel, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TDB Insider Newsletter, The “P” Word Podcast (and all the social media for that account) and I am a social media influencer. Now, there are times that I may hire out for some video edits, or maybe someone to proofread some of my content but that’s it. Maybe I am trying to do the most. Or maybe I need to understand and accept that I need help.

I need a TEAM. (Or at least that’s what I think)

Everything else falls on me. I am the one that is keeping things going. Although it makes me incredibly happy, I am also tired and exhausted. But you see I don’t stay up until 2:30 a.m. most nights for my health. I stay up and push through for those of you who enjoy my content and the information that I love to share. 

I’m here for you.

I do this for every woman that looks up to me. For every woman, that has asked me a question on how to build their brand. For the women who support me 100%. I am also here for the women you want to build a life walking in their purpose and making money from their passions. But with all that being said I still feel like I’m not doing enough.


I don’t understand why I feel this way? Why don’t I trust myself enough to know THIS is what my purpose is. When I look at other women doing what they need to do and getting their coins I can’t help but ask myself what can I do better? How can I be better? For starters, I need to believe in my purpose and my passion. Because let be real. No one said this would be easy. I wake up every day and do what I need to do for my brand while working a full-time job.

No excuses.

One of my biggest faults is not knowing when to ask for help. I don’t ASK my community to support me, to purchase the latest resource, or to share my content with their friends who may enjoy it. Simply put…

I Don’t Ask.

Y’all, I know better than this. If I have learned one thing while sheltering in place, I have learned that in my own lane is where I need to be and not in my feelings. Because being in my feelings is getting me caught up on the wrong things and causing me to lose focus on my goals.

So here’s to get out of my feelings and get into growing my brand.
