I was a slave to my job. My career at the time had me working hours on end, out of the house and working every weekend. My husband would work 9-5 and I would be working 5:30-10 p.m., and it got old fast.
When I had my twins, I had to make a decision: Do I want to spend my time working for someone else on their hours, spending all my family time outside of home just for a
paycheque, or am I ready to find something I can do on my own – build something for myself and find purpose?
I went with option B. I left behind some pretty big paycheques and took a chance on a career that was in no way guaranteed, but we were going to make it happen. It was the best decision I have ever made.
My intention and purpose in my work is for women from the age of four to the age of 104 to see their greatness, to feel their best and be grateful. I want women to see their extraordinary worth. I want women to love who they are how they are and to find passion and purpose.
If there was one piece of advice I could pass on to those listening, it would be to be grateful. It took me a really long time to learn the secret to having it all. I didn’t understand the power of gratitude. Then it clicked…when we acknowledge that we already have it all and become grateful for the things we have in life, the universe responds and we receive more of what we are grateful for.
Every day is not guaranteed – waking up tomorrow morning may not happen. So love what you have so hard so that when you do wake up tomorrow you’re amazed by the abundance that is your life.
Be happy, don’t stress and just breathe.
