The Woman who started it all

Woah. Twelve featured female entrepreneurs. Twelve courageous women. Twelve badass stories and I am beyond grateful. The happy tears are real.

Why do I even do this though? You'd be surprised how much work goes into making this blog run. Finding women on a high as fuck frequency to share their truth, all the virtual coffee's, the edits and the posting takes time and energy. It's worth it.

We all deserve to share our stories and our message and this blog is a vehicle for not just me to do that but for others too. Isn't that a beautiful thing?!

I realised that with sharing all these wonderful ladies, I hadn't actually shared my own story in business. So here it is.

I've worked full-time (occasionally more by working multiple jobs) since I was 18. I still work full-time around this blog, social media, two Facebook communities promoting happiness and 1:1 Healing sessions.

My business journey as with everyone else has had its ups and downs. I started out with a Network Marketing business in 2018. It was successful to the point we turned over £10,000 in a month, then the next month wasn't so good and I gave up. My business had been a freaking rollercoaster and it was time to get off. I felt like a total failure but by the point of the below photo, I had reached full burn out.

Yup, that's me. Fallen asleep in the middle of the day, facedown on the living room floor, and mid message to someone about a product. It wasn't pretty. I wasn't having fun. I decided to quit instead of learning to rest. That's on me and not Network Marketing. I decided to make a change but to what... I didn't know! I took a break and it was uncomfortable. I felt lost, confused, and stressed. Battling my inner voice telling me to just stay in my lane and give in. Telling me that I couldn't do it. Telling me I wasn't good at anything.

In the middle of all of this, I had an on and off relationship with my yoga business. I taught at retreats, in-person, online, and 1:1. I enjoyed it but I couldn't stay consistent and my body started breaking down after recording over 9 classes every weekend for a month. Not sustainable.

Then I found myself on a healing journey. I invested in coaching. I listened to my body and fuelled it with what it needed. I opened my soul to the universe and I found my superpower. In all the pain I'd experienced I'd always been able to find joy, see the good in others, and keep going. I always had the energy of a freaking springer spaniel. That inner voice was fucking wrong!

I learned in my healing journey how to activate my strength. My emotional strength. My physical strength. My spiritual strength. I found my path to happiness and through healing myself I know that I can help others to heal too.

That's my mission: to help women get off the rollercoaster of life and live happy by activating their strength. So come on the next part of this journey with me!
