My life became all about work and little about living, which was not what I had pictured for my life at the age of 30. I desperately wanted more time to spend with my daughter and knew I was meant for something bigger when it came to my career choice. And most important, I realized I had to take responsibility for the life I had in order to transform it to the life I imagined.
Finally, enough was enough.
I remember the day clearly. I was taking a bath when my husband at the time came in and asked me what I was doing. I thought it was obvious that I was taking a bath, but it turns out his question had a reason. He informed me that I had left the garage door up, my keys in the car and the door was unlocked. I had been home for over an hour! It was at that moment that it became crystal clear to me that I was no longer present in my life. The Universe was giving me yet another sign that something had to give, and if I didn‘t heed the warning, who knew what the next sign might look like.
At that moment, I decided to start living—to stop waiting for life. I knew I wanted to travel. I wanted to work on my terms. I wanted to enjoy life with my daughter.
My life depended on me making changes.
I then discovered that you can create a business around your lifestyle; that it is possible to package your knowledge, experience, and expertise into products to sell online, in addition to offering coaching and so much more! The best part about this discovery was the idea that I could leverage my time in such a way that it would allow me to work on MY terms; this meant freeing up my schedule to allow more time to spend with family and friends, travel, and share my passions with others in the way I chose to do so.
At the same time, there was so much for me to learn and so many steps I needed to take; I was paralyzed and overwhelmed. To build an online platform, I needed photos, videos, a website, an avatar, scripts, lead pages, and the list goes on and on.
