I am a big believer that we are all co-creators in our own lives. I believe that all the things we desire are waiting for us to show up. I know first hand that there's a power greater than us, always working to serve us, to guide us toward that life of our dreams.
YES, we are meant to have it all.
Somewhere along the way though, we (the collective, cultural we) forgot that the entire universe was always supporting us, even when things seemingly sucked. We forgot that we were meant to be madly in love with every bit of our life. That we were designed on a cellular level to thrive. It's literally inside of us, waiting for us to access it.
Why aren't we all "there" yet? We've been told a lot of shitty stories. A few of mine- money is hard to earn, starting a business is asking for failure, big dreams are unrealistic, success means no time to enjoy life.
I called bullshit.
I was watching right before my eyes, women waking up to their power, earning money doing what they loved, thriving in business and life, and still maintaining their integrity and beautiful feminine flow. How? When we say yes to our dreams, when we commit to self-work, self-love and a life of service, we are shown the way.
I always had an eye for beautiful design and a tenacious desire to learn. I loved business, strategy, marketing, but I also loved yoga, meditation, and spirituality. I started helping family and friends with their businesses- bookkeeping, graphic design, website design, marketing strategy. I was still working at a 9-5 job during this, but I started to lean in closer to my own thing and further from life as an employee.
Before I knew it, I was let go from the job that gave me confidence and security. It was an out of body experience. I felt this part of me rise out of my body. She rose above my head and started to cheer for me. All I remember hearing that divine day was, "you can't be here anymore". In this moment, I knew that God was doing for me what I could not do for myself. This was the first time in my life that I got to really practice faith and trust. There was something greater that was calling me in a really big way.
Looking back to that day, I realize that many women, including myself, begin their venture as online entrepreneurs from a place of fear. Fear of failure, fear of technology, fear of not doing it right.
Before I got the help I needed to lift my business, I was struggling, debating if I was made for this stuff.
I used to sit and cry, scared that I was going to lose my mind, my boyfriend, my whole life. I remember praying to see it another way. I wanted a thriving business and life, I knew I could do it, I just didn't know how the hell it would happen. The answer I received after a lot of prayer and surrender- take care of you first.
Self-care and a lot of love and appreciation became my priority. I went months with no clients. I just sat in a place of deep surrender, taking salt baths, going to spin class, walking my dog, breathing. Through this massive healing, things started to clear. Things started to make sense. My power was being restored and strengthened in an entirely new way. I came out of this state as a new woman. Ready to step up to the plate and step into my power.
Clients came, business ideas came, help came, money came!
My WHY: It goes way deeper than marketing, web design and branding. I'm here to keep saving myself from lack mentality and scarcity. To experience true freedom and financial security. To support the life of my dreams. Because when I do this for me...
I empower other women to the same damn thing!!
We are in this journey together. I only rise as I help others rise. I only grow as I help others grow. My ease and grace comes from my service to others.
