Even though this subject is not comfortable for me to share, I feel so compelled to share it just in case someone needs this in their life like I did. I can’t be the only mom who craved to be more present, yet wanted to be more than a stay at home mom. I remember thinking for years I wish there was a job that existed that would allow me to work from home, work my own hours around my family's schedule, allow me to make a good income & feel fulfilled as a mom, yet just as fulfilled as a woman. I was constantly craving more purpose in this life. Don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly grateful to be a “mom” & a “wife” but there was a piece of me for many years that just didn’t feel complete no matter what job I had. So when this opportunity was presented to me to work from home that required me to take the best care of myself, while helping others do the same I thought this can not be real can it? What job requires that & creates an income for you as well? I thought about the opportunity for a long time until I finally decided to learn about how this would actually work.
3 years ago when I decided to close the doors to my interior decorating business to become a full time Lifestyle coach, it was scary as heck. This wasn’t what I went to school for. This wasn’t what I ever imagined myself doing. This wasn’t a very acceptable route by society. I knew financially we would take a big loss. I knew I was going to invest a lot of time into learning about social media marketing, how to lead a team, how to become a Lifestyle Coach & constantly push myself out of my comfort zone to grow this business. I knew this wasn’t going to be easy, but something in my gut kept encouraging me to pursue this journey.
Many people become a coach because they think they are just going to be handed the card of financial freedom, travel to all these amazing places & work 1 hour a day for a full time income. I know many businesses out there on social media give this FALSE hope, I see it daily. Luckily when my coach presented this opportunity she never did & told me I was going to have to work my butt off to go after all the goals I shared with her. That this would not be easy & that I would have to make sacrifices to truly make those goals come true on my goal board….guess what??? She was 100% right!
I have worked the hardest I have ever worked & I have always given every job I have ever had my all, but the best part is when you absolutely love every part of your job you don’t dread it or resent it. I am almost feel obsessed with what I do because I love it that much. I am truly excited every morning my feet hit the floor. I never dread Mondays or any day for that matter & even though this was not what I had planned for my future-ever, I know 100% this is what I mean to be doing.
So I sit here looking at my bank account & the pride I feel right now is overwhelming. At one point I was probably making $4 an hour & busting my butt every moment I could. My husband was so encouraging for that first year & said “Babe most people make nothing the first few years they are starting a business”. The thing was “nothing” was not going to help support my family & I was busting my butt for very little which wasn’t an easy thing to accept. Nothing wasn’t going to help pay our college debt off. Nothing wasn’t going to help pay for the kids sports or pay for that quickly growing grocery bill. Nothing wasn't going to help cover our medical bills. Nothing wasn’t going to help cover all the extras that constantly pop up. Nothing wasn’t going to help us achieve all the things we dream of achieving. We continued to make sacrifices where we could, but thankfully I never lost hope & my husband never did either. He saw how hard I was working & knew I was going to achieve those goals on my goal board. So it felt darn good to show him what I earned today. The highest paycheck I have ever received since coaching, the highest paycheck I have ever received in my life & even crazier is this week is more than I ever made at any other job in a month. I sit here in shock & utterly grateful for trusting the process & never giving up giving this journey my all.
I am sharing this for a reason & those who know me, know this is NOT to brag. I am sharing this because when you believe in what you are doing, you are passionate about what you get to do in this life, you set goals, you consistently work hard every SINGLE day & you wholeheartedly are in business for ALL the right reasons success will happen. Goals will be reached. Dreams will be possible. It doesn’t happen when you think it should happen, it happens when you work hard & put people over profit every single time.
My husband has always been the breadwinner in our family & he makes a darn good income from all the hard work he does, but it feels FREAKING FABULOUS to have a job that is finally allowing me to be the present mom I craved to be, that fuels my soul with such passion & that helps support my family more than I could have ever imagine. It feels incredible to have worked hard for every single thing I have achieved & to truly see all those sacrifices along with long hours pay off.
If this spoke to you, if you are a hard working woman, if you are craving to feel fulfilled-yet craving to be more present as a mom, you would love to have a job that allows you more freedom along with flexibility, requires you to take the best care of yourself while helping others do the same then I would love for you to fill out an application & take one of my remaining spots in my next coach training university.
