Having a dream is important. Having a plan is important. But, life goes on, and it often takes different turns than what expected, or at least in my case; I ended up living on autopilot.
The dream and ambition to start something of my own have always been in the cards. When I grew up, both of my parents worked from home, and were available. THIS was one of the highlights of my childhood, having my parents around – and I always wanted to be able to pass it on to my family. Bad luck, or whatever you want to call it; after both of my pregnancies I’ve lost my job as a temporary worker, and been out of work. It ended up with me being a full-time mom, with a son, with challenges, and a little girl.
Which is equivalent to a pretty full time schedule – life went on autopilot and I lost myself. I ended up feeling like being “just a mom”, questioning “who was I?”, “what should I contribute?”, “where will I be in life, 5-10 years from now?”
Then I met with a very close friend, who had started this journey herself. She had quit her job and fully committed to this business and was dedicated. After knowing each other for many years, I met a new and improved friend, full of energy, pride & positivity – and, this put grills in my head.
We tend to always look for the perfect time, but there’s none. Either you jump into it, or you stay on land. After a few weeks in the think tank, I decided to jump! To this day, I’ve reached my first leadership title and I’ve found myself again. I’m working on being the best version of myself, a mom to my kids, structured and dedicated to me and my business. This has been more than just a job opportunity, but a lifestyle change and my journey has just begun. I’m really looking forward for the future!
