Let's share our stories. What is the reason why you decided to start your own business?
The spark that ignited for me was my desire to help more people on my own terms. I am an educator by profession where I help students be successful in college. My career had been satisfying up to a certain point, but then I realized one day that I was bored, and unfulfilled, and feeling like my job was holding me back from "becoming." I wanted to express myself in a whole new way, but the job limited my ability to reinvent myself. So I had three options: ignore how I was feeling and just settle, seek employment elsewhere, or create a new life of freedom, prosperity and most of all, greater purpose. I chose the latter!! For me settling would be too unsettling in my spirit, and finding another 9-5 would be too difficult as the job market is tight in my field (e.g. lots of hiring freezes, furloughs, etc.). So the only option for me was to create a new life for myself on my own terms. I am gifted in helping people be successful and reach their most important goals, and want to continue along this path-- but on a much broader scale. I chose to re-aligned with my Divine design and life plan. So I did it and I love it :)
What's your story?”
