How Did I Get Here?
My life changed when I found myself divorced, without my home, which we sold in a short sale to avoid foreclosure. At the time, I was working at a job with no benefits and it wasn’t even guaranteed that I’d work. I knew at that moment that things would have to change. This was the lowest part of my life. I expected so much more for myself in 39 years.
As I was now single, the first thing I had to do was get a “good dependable” job, preferably with benefits. On 1/10/2010, I started working a state job. During this time, I assumed I would never go back to trying my hand at a business. From 2010 to 2017, I focused on growing and building a new life. I completed my Communication and Public Relations Bachelor Degree and received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing. Once this was done, I wasn’t sure what my next step would be on my life’s journey.
In August of 2017, I was working nightshift at my state job and someone contacted me about an opportunity to make additional income. My first response was no, but after finding out more about the company and the passion the founders have for helping women, I knew I’d found a new place to call home.
Over the past ten months, I have found confidence and I knew as I continued this journey, I’d want to share it with others.
Of course, when growth comes there also comes pain.
As they say, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
I came to the point of feeling totally scrambled and uncertain if I was willing or even able to make the changes necessary to find success. I hate to admit it, but I was to the point of quitting, but it was in that moment that I made a choice. What was going to happen if I didn’t step out and try? I asked myself, what did I have to lose except for another five to ten years of the same thing I’ve been doing?
I believe I have a call on my life to do so much more by helping others and I needed to stop playing small.
