Embracing the unknown…
… and getting uncomfortable changed my life.
My daily grind consisted of 4-hour commutes and very little time for my growing family. With a sudden job loss, life threw me for a big, yet serendipitous, loop. I had grown tired of the corporate culture for some time by then and this blessing in disguise presented an opportunity for a little bit of a life makeover and a chance to truly step out of my comfort zone.
Creating that life-balance was THE best decision I could’ve made and transformed me in so many ways. Shy and introverted by nature, this journey pushed me to explore life beyond my comfort zone. I am loving every minute of my entrepreneurial-stay-at-home-mom journey that has taught me so much about who I am and what I am truly capable of. I’m grateful that I get to spend more time with my family and create a life that feels authentic.
