If your response is no, you're in the right spot.
Let's be honest: you're fighting to create a thriving business to positively impact the world aka do something you love and gain the financial freedom you're craving. You set up your expectations, and you go for the GOLD. Because you deserve it. Because you're ambitious and want to make your vision a reality.
