Over the last couple weeks I’ve had some major revelations. I did some serious soul searching recently after some major life changing events. As as single mom of an almost 8 year old, I’ve lived the last few years of my life to be a an amazing role model to him.
When I had my son, I saw it as a blessing. But also as an opportunity to step up as a woman. I never had a man in my life that didn’t disappoint me. I had been married twice, and always hoping that someone was going to save me.
When I first started my business, I was also going through an extremely heartbreaking divorce from my soul mate. I had been suffering and lost for many, many years. There were countless times I didn’t want to live anymore.
I never thought I was good enough. I never had anyone in my life be proud of me. I never had anyone push me to be better.
I remember getting bullied since 4th grade, I was never popular, I was always made fun of. I wasn’t even asked to my senior prom.
At 32 years old, I found myself completely broke, alone, in about $60K in debt and moving back in with my parents. I felt like the biggest failure and loser on earth.
I was supposed to have all my shit together. I was supposed to have a cushy job, a happy family and a mediocre income. That was normal.
I went through some pretty tough things all at once. Those things could have kept me stuck. But I took the opportunity to completely change my life.
I literally immersed myself in my work for the last few years. I busted my butt. I did the work. Even when it wasn’t looking like anything was going to happen at all. Even when I had people asking me daily when I was going to get a real job. Even though I literally had NO ONE that believed in me.
I DECIDED TO BELIEVE IN ME.
I’m became determined to be the best role model for my son and raise him to be a blessing, not a disappointment in any woman’s life.
I am determined to show him that he can create anything he wants and he does not have to do things that don’t fuel his soul.
I’ve created a business that I love, that has generated over two million dollars in revenue over the past 4 years. I reach and impact tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people every single day.
I built this business as a proof to myself that I could do it and of course to leave a legacy for my son.
What I’ve learned is that when you have a purpose and you have a real reason to make shit work, you absolutely find a way. Even if there is not guarantee. Even if people think you’re insane. Even if the results might take months or years.
You will do it anyway. If you feel stuck or plateaued, my guess is that you are not living the life you truly want, or not running the business you most desire. You might even be doing something because you think you “should” or because you think that’s what’s going to make you money.
Truthbomb: It rarely, if ever – does.
I’m not dropping it today to be your savior, but to inspire you to get the fuck up and RISE… despite your circumstances, despite your failures, despite what other people might think…
All I know is I’m done with the whiners, complainers and the people looking for handouts. It doesn’t work that way.
If you are ambitious, strong, know you have a purpose, know you are meant for more and are willing to be relentless and uncompromising to make shit happen for yourself, then I’m your girl.
If I can pull off what I did with my circumstances, you certainly can too!
Bottom line: Stop complaining, find your purpose and go live it. If you need help figuring it out or want a shortcut – invest in someone who can help you. No more excuses. You’ve got this.
