Don't be afraid to do what's best for you..

How many times have you put your dreams on hold or not done something for yourself because of fear of rejection, failure, criticism, or even finances? You aren't alone on that one. I don't want to make this blog all about me, but I want to share this with you in hopes that it will allow you to dig deep and have faith in yourself. Chase that dream you've always had, take a chance on yourself. Do it for you, and do it for your family.


A little over three years ago I found my dream job, I knew it was exactly what I needed and wanted to do. I also knew it wasn't going to be easy and knew it was going to take a small investment to get started. It wasn't your typical job down the street or something you hear many people say. In fact, none of my friends and family were working this type of job.


There was judgement in everyones eyes and tone of voice when I told them what I wanted to do. In fact, many didn't even want to talk to me about it. So I kept working my Corporate America jobs and doing "what I was supposed to." I was going through the motions, but I was honestly making really good money and moving my way up in the company. Did I love what I did? Absolutely! I used to tell people it was the dream job I never knew I wanted.


But something was missing.. I found myself listening to podcasts at work of women who were working the career I so desperately wanted. I would have to go into the bathroom before I cried in front of everyone, wondering why not me? Why can't I do that? I was slowly doing this business on the side, but I knew I wanted this full-time and I knew my heart wouldn't be satisfied until I was. There honestly felt like there was a piece of me missing everyday. That's exactly how I explained it to my fiance.


After 3 years of this, one Thursday morning I had enough. I broke down crying before going into work and decided I needed to just take a chance and dive all in. That Saturday I quit my job.

I wasn't making enough money to make ends meet with my side gig, now turned full-time job. But I


knew deep in my heart that I could do it. I knew this was what I was meant to do and that the people I loved would only be getting part of me until I was complete. This was not fair to them. So I did it. I spent the money I did have on my business start up and dove in head first.


I'm now working from home everyday, being proof of the product, and helping others on their health & mindset journey, and helping others start their own business too.


I feel complete. I'm able to do the things I so desperately wanted, even down to the simple things like having dinner on the table when my fiance gets home from work, and taking my dog for a walk in the middle of the day. I'm happy. There's no more coming home at the end of a long workday complaining about how tired I am, what all went wrong that day, and how much work I need to get done the next day. Now I'm talking about the people's lives I changed that day and the motivational Zoom calls I was able to be a part of.


I'm not saying this journey is for you too, I mean maybe it is! But I know there's SOMETHING you've always wanted to do but felt like the odds were stacked against you. They were for me too. But I did the damn thing, and so can you. Put fear aside and just go for it. Have faith in the process, give yourself some grace because every day won't be a win, but just start. Do not spend the rest of your life wondering, what if?


You deserve to do this.


You deserve the opportunity to chase your dreams.


You deserve to be happy.


What are you waiting for?


Do the damn thing!


XO,

Stephanie
