I’ve been inspired by my friend Jenn, a cool and amazing business gal, who recently re-branded herself, to better express her heart, passion and direction. I have been going through a transition myself recently with my business and my focus, but I really hadn’t taken the time to explain what it is I’m doing. I wanted to focus more on what’s in my heart and what drives me and excites me.
It’s not easy for me to expose my heart, and to share the ups and downs. Quite the opposite. But one thing I’ve learned is that sharing our journey can help inspire and encourage others.
Last year I started a new business and had to dive into the world of technology, social media, marketing and learning how to reach others. Not so easy for a 40-something, not tech-savvy gal like me. But I followed my heart, because my desire and my passion for building a business is stronger than my fear. I do not feel that I was just meant to pay the bills and then die! I don’t think any of us are. So I jumped in with both feet and have been learning all I can, teaching myself new things, going out of my comfort zone, and becoming a new version of myself.
I believe that EVERYONE has something special to offer the world, something to share and teach. Something unique and amazing! Inside each one of us is a gift that God has given, and it is our privilege to give this freely.
The things that drive me are Creativity, Business and Health. These are the things I want to share with you, teach you, help you, motivate you, inspire you. I hope that I can be a light in this way to some. These things are my passion and my purpose. What lights me up. And the driving force behind ALL of it….is people. YOU. Relationships. That’s my heart.
So in a nutshell, here is the brand and the focus of me and my business:
Creativity: each of us has something in us that brings us joy and pleasure and is a way to express ourselves in a healthy way and gives a creative outlet. Spending the time cultivating your creative side is good and healthy and makes for a well-rounded, mentally healthy person.
For me, it’s quilting and making food. :)
Ok, it’s not JUST those 2, but those are the main categories, you know?
Business: I’m a born entrepreneur. It’s in my DNA. I love business, love the satisfaction of working for myself and making my life and my world on MY terms. My passion and purpose is to teach others to do the same.
Health: This is something I’ve learned to love. Living a healthier lifestyle has helped me become stronger, more active, happier, have better mental clarity and attitude, more energy, and just all around feel better! It’s not about being skinny. It’s becoming a better version of yourself.
I want to thank you for your support and encouragement, for allowing me to express myself here, for your kind words, and for allowing me a place to share my heart and purpose with you.
I love you guys!
