10 years ago I started in my first Network Marketing company.
I was young, excited, and naive. The company that my husband and I worked for had just closed its doors, and I was being shown that it was possible to make millions leveraging my own efforts. 🤑
It was my first taste of entrepreneurship.
It totally failed. 🙈
But the one thing that it did do was teach me to fall in love with growth - and how to THINK like an entrepreneur (something most of us are taught the opposite of growing up). A few months later I begrudgingly went for a job interview - where I told the interviewer in not so many words, “I don’t want to do the job you’re hiring me for.” 🙄🤦♀️ I got the job and spent the last 10 years growing myself, my skills, and my network.
It was about 4 years ago when I came across another network marketing opportunity. I had that deep in my bones excited and dreaming of all the possibilities feeling again.😍 I hustled, I put in the work, I even had success building into leadership ranks and getting huge bonuses.
But I burnt out.☠️ I forced it.
But it was exactly what I needed to catapult me into my next level of growth. To unlearn that the masculine force, push, drive, hustle, was the only way to success.
I stepped away from that business and watched my efforts crumble.
The moral of my story is that I could have at any time squashed those dreams.
It was scary. I had to put myself out there. I was laughed at and ridiculed. I failed. I burnt out. I tried to show up as the woman I thought I had to be instead of allowing my true self to be seen.
So many times I questioned this longing in my soul. Why could I just be happy with what I had? Why couldn’t so just fall in line? So much internal chaos, anxiety, and that heaviness of “will I ever get there?” 👉🏻 If you’re going through hell - keep going!🔥 Everything you are going through is preparing you for your next level.
Helping you to embody the woman who has anything and everything she’s ever dreamed of.
Everything is happening for you to learn and grow.
So when you are “in it”, have grace on yourself, and be reminded... *continued in comments
