Are you ready to make a big change in your life? This was me not so long ago. Let me tell you more about myself and where I was a few years ago, and how this has led me to where I am today. Maybe you are experiencing something similar in your life today and I would love to help you.
Before becoming a mom
About 3 years ago I gave birth to my beautiful little girl, Addison. Before she was born, I was driven by academic achievement and to be frank, I was a workaholic. I thought that the only way my family, friends and husband would accept me is if I conformed to their idea of success, which was to get a “real” job and bring home a good salary. That was it. Anything outside of this, any entrepreneurial spirit I had or the big dreams I expressed was frowned upon, because it wasn’t going to work and “making your passion as your career would ultimately fail”.
So I slugged along. But when Addison came, I hated leaving her at home after my maternity leave ended, and I had to go back to regular work life. Many would say to me when I complained about the intense “mommy-guilt” that I was experiencing, “Oh don’t worry, it’s part of life”; “she will survive without you”; “everyone else does it and their kids are fine”… Have you heard the same thing?
My turning point
Well, I finally decided that this is not for me I couldn’t bare to feel burnt out anymore, and definitely not for something that didn’t make me happy. So I decided that I want to spend the majority of my time with Addison. I want to be present for her in every way that I can. I want to be able to take her to school, to go to her concerts or sports events, and I want to play with her and enjoy it – not hate it because I am so exhausted.
So here I am, running an online business of my own so that I can eventually quit my job and stay at home with my daughter, spend more time on my physical, mental and emotional health and live a life of abundance.
Find your freedom
Even though I am not there yet, I have already found freedom, finally. And I want to help you find that as well. There is absolutely no shame in wanting more for yourself. You do not have to kill yourself trying to live up to other’s expectations for your life. Live your dreams. If there is any time to do it, its now. The online world provides amazing opportunities in any niche. You just need to figure out what brings you the most joy, and what you would love to wake up to everyday.
I would love to create a community of moms (or any woman) who seek freedom from their oppressing life (what ever that oppression may look like). If you need help today, why don’t you consider using my FREE GUIDE to explore how you can start your own business, whether this is online or local, and get it to run for you so that you can really live.
I would love to hear from you. Does any of this resonate with you? What are your struggles? What makes you anxious? Are you living the life you really love? What does that life look like? Leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Come over and connect with me on Instagram. I would love to get to know you and build this community so that we can all support each other’s endeavors.
