Hello there! 👋🏻 Welcome to our network. I don't think I need to tell anyone that last year was H-A-R-D. It was challenging in so many ways. As a full-time working mother with a demanding career that also has 3 kids under the age of 6 including one with special needs, who was also simultaneously owning and operating a boutique doughnut shop that had launched 4 months before the pandemic - exhausted doesn't quite seem to describe the roller coaster. I also know everyone has their version of the terrifying ride that was 2020 - many much worse than my own experience.
The good thing that came out of 2020 was a renewed commitment to discipline and a visceral sense that life is short and I needed to get clear about my life's purpose.
My husband and I got serious about our money management - we have a plan to get out of debt completely by 2023. 🥳 We got serious about our relationship and started talking about the things we've been meaning to discuss but always found a reason not to. I started facing the things I never, ever wanted to and began the hardest work I have ever done - trauma integration. All so that I can be a better version of me - of us.
As a result of all of this, my purpose became increasingly clear. The work I have always been meant to do - The work that gets me out of bed every morning and quietly pushes me to become the person in my dreams - was staring at me. It was there all along.
My purpose is to remove the barriers of entrepreneurship through education, coaching and community for women who want to create a business during motherhood that will heal the world & inspire generations.
That is what this community is dedicated to - real talk about the messy, chaotic, beautiful, challenging, rewarding life as woman entrepreneur that is also navigating motherhood. I will share my experience, knowledge, advice and journey in an effort to say that I see you, I know you and together we can do anything. ♥️
For the past 7 1/2 years I have been serving as Vice President & Director of Programs at a company called MAC6. We help entrepreneurs break through ceilings to achieve growth. I coach, teach and facilitate sessions with leadership teams of businesses of all sizes. I love the work that I do and am thrilled to bring these tools and experience to a new audience.
