OH, BUT MY DARLING, WHAT IF YOU FLY?"

REALIZE YOUR PASSIONS
If you had to say what you were passionate about could you narrow it down to just one thing?
It’s a difficult question because we are all so multi-faceted and we are capable and passionate about many things.
Are you in a position to pursue your passions?
Do you have work/life balance so all your boxes are checked?
I have an online business with a company that I adore sharing products that I personally love and that have been life changing for me. I’m proud to be a part of this company because it is integral, ethical and crazy innovative.
My clients are amazingly supportive and trusting. My business partners are bold, creative and consistently blow my mind with their commitment to push beyond their boundaries. They consider different perspectives so that they can create a life and lifestyle that supports dreams.
My other passions, the ones that make me do what I do EVERY DAY, are my family- my spouse, our 3 amazing children, our new home, and our 2 dogs. I am able to support our elderly parents, attend yoga practice, golf in the summer and curl in the winter and I have the most amazing circle of friends a girl could want!!!
I am able to realize all of these passions because of my business and the support it provides. I believe I have found a “golden ticket” for people that see “more” for their lives. Whether it’s financial freedom to pay the mortgage or buy the Loubouton’s or it’s time freedom to pursue/nurture their personal passions, the possibilities are infinite. If you’re looking to retire from your 9-5 or you want to start a family and be home with the bambino’s then let’s chat.
What is it that you see when you look in the mirror? Someone who is killing it or someone who is looking for more? Let me help you realize the person you know you are inside - this is what I do…it’s who I am….I have lived my life accepting the challenges thrown at me (and there’s been many!) and I can help you navigate through yours.
LIVING OUT LOUD
I was a stay-at home mom of two for over 20 years. I took on some small contract work and spent a lot of time volunteering for my children's schools and for the community. I went through a divorce when my son was 10 and my daughter was 13. Those are tough years for kids to face their family separating and thankfully their father was supportive of me being home with them while they finished school.
I knew from an early age that being a wife and mom was going to be my vocation - and it happened and I was never more grateful. I never anticipated a divorce. My own parents had a nasty divorce when I was 13 (which was rare back in those days) and I never wanted to impose that on my children. As life happens, I had to re-experience my parents divorce, my sense of abandonment, loss and rebirth in the years that followed. Thank goodness for therapy!! I don't know where I would be without the help of an amazing cast of men and women that have helped me stay grounded and do my best in some lousy circumstances.
I was financially well supported for many years but I knew that it wasn't going to last forever. There was an end date and I had to pony up and figure out what I was going to do with the next chapter of my life. I found an online business. I could work it on my timeline, I could work as little or as much as I wanted, no college or university degree was necessary and there was no ceiling as to the amount of income you could make. I had a chance to reinvent myself on every level. A different part of my brain was activated and I was starting to feel optimistic and alive!
I believe that because of all that I've been through, I also began to serve as a useful resource to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I have finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I have always journaled about my passions, my thoughts and my curious observations. I started my website with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind (it can be scary in there!), while hopefully providing inspiration as I maneuver/captain this life and grow out of the "boots on the ground" mom roll to a successful business owner and entrepreneur.
My hope is that you take a little time to read my blog, see something that sparks an interest, smile a bit, relate a bit and perhaps feel a little less alone in a world that can feel so isolating at times.
