I’ve always been attracted to entrepreneurship.
In business school, not yet 20, when I learned that a competing business school had launched a new program in Entrepreneurship, something inside of me perked up. I felt called to explore this nonsensical “thing” that I didn’t quite understand, as if some kind of knowing deep inside of me was trying to get my attention.
I ignored it.
Instead, I graduated and joined “Corporate.” I worked for a number of startup companies too. After I got married and had kids, I went to work with my dad. He had two businesses. I joined both.
Later, I started graduate school (oddly, to earn an MFA), yet found myself attracted to a campus job at the Innovation Center. I got the job, and I was ecstatic. I loved hearing all the ideas, innovations, and achievements from entrepreneurs, both on campus and off. I lined up resources, co-planned events and pitch-offs, and supported statewide entrepreneurship initiatives. While there, I earned a graduate certificate in Innovation Engineering.
I loved every minute. Deep in my soul, I knew I wanted to run my own business, be my own boss, and innovate/iterate. Still, I resisted. (At the time, I believed I didn’t have any innovative ideas.) I stuck with the safety and security of a salary and benefits.
After the University gig, I took a remote Corporate job and worked from home. Over time, I was miserable. I hated how the organization was run. I got so exasperated one Friday afternoon I almost quit on the spot. I gave my notice on Monday.
I started a business.
I was scared.
I lacked confidence.
I oozed self-doubt.
Along the way, I’ve made a lot of mistakes.
I’ve pivoted and changed my niche several times.
I’ve felt like a failure.
I’ve been confused, overwhelmed, and uncertain.
I’ve cried. I’ve been broke. I’ve wondered how I’ll ever get by.
But I’ve always kept going.
Something inside of me has known all along that I’m following the right path, even in those times when I haven’t have any solid evidence to support me.
A couple of years ago, when I discovered NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Time Line Therapy®, I learned that I could heal my fear, failure, unworthiness, and thoughts of being lost in my business. And I healed long-held emotional scars from other periods in my life too, like childhood and after my divorce. I learned that these negative thoughts and emotions were serving as energetic blocks—imprinted into my unconscious—and they were holding me back. I got rid of them.
That’s when everything got better.
I'm exactly where I belong.
Today, I LOVE operating my own business, and I LOVE supporting other women in growing their businesses.
My clients and I experience magical exchanges of vitalizing energy, business growth, and personal expansion. I take great pride and pleasure in the win-win.
I am aligned, fulfilled, and happy.
I feel deeply content and satisfied in my business and my life.
