Tell us about yourself
I am a wife and entrepreneur and incredibly passionate about helping others. Throughout my life, I have moved through many transitions and experiences that have shaped who I am today. Through life experiences, I have learned to recognize negative influences, establish healthy boundaries, determine the source of my identity, and make difficult choices that propelled me to become a better version of myself. These experiences haven't always been easy, but I am thankful for mentors and wise individuals in my corner who encouraged me to lean in and grow through difficulty. My purpose is to pass this forward. I am committed to helping women minimize barriers, achieve goals, build healthy relationships, and establish purpose.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Getting Certified as a Life Coach and launching a business that aligns with my calling and purpose in life. To me, getting the opportunity to help women live with purpose and fulfillment in life is a huge accomplishment. I love getting to coach women and help them create lasting change in their lives.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
As a business owner, limiting beliefs can easily creep in and try to hold you back from accomplishing your goals. Limiting beliefs can come in the form of thinking to yourself, "Who am I to help others" or "What will my family and friends think of me if I start my own business?" Even though this can be an obstacle for a time, it is incredible when you get to the other side of those limiting thoughts and lies through creating power statements. Power statements are quick, truth-filled sentences that you can say to yourself when you start to believe the lies that creep in. For example, "I build my business one conversation at a time" or "I believe in this business because it allows me to live with purpose and have a lasting impact in others' lives." Do not let limiting beliefs stop you from starting your own business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do not try to do it all alone - Put yourself in an honest, positive, and encouraging community that helps you to accomplish your goals.
- Create personal power statements - Write down your limiting beliefs and lies and combat them by saying positive statements about you and your business.
- Hire a Life Coach - This will help you start your own business on the right foot and propel you to tackle your goals with confidence.
