In the past 8 years, my life has changed dramatically in every area.
Let’s focus on my finances. When I began this journey, my life was one where I was borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. I was over $50,000 in credit card debt. I had a lien on my house. I didn’t know what to do and was suffering in silence.
I think the thing that was most frustrating, was that I had followed all the rules in my opinion. I had gone to school, I have a college degree and a university degree. I worked my way through my profession, was at the top of my game, and there weren’t many more places I could go.
The income that I was making was close to my ceiling and I wasn’t living the lifestyle I wanted.
I wasn’t making ends meet, and I didn’t have an answer. So therefore I was suffering in silence.
When the pain got intense enough in my life, and the level of frustration became great enough, I was willing to do anything to change.
I had to step out of my what I knew for the first time and try something different. In doing that, I had to create the first step in my vision. Through this process, I was able to go from having a negative cash flow, to a positive cash flow. I think more importantly, was who I became in the process. I don’t think that you can go from a being cash negative, being, frustrated and working for someone else to being cash abundant and self employed without stepping into a journey that transforms you.
The biggest gift is not only who I’ve become, but who I am still in the process of becoming. The person who had to grow, who had to step out of her comfort zone, who had to learn so many different things. It is in that journey that I found the beginning of my greatness.
What I’m inviting everyone to do, is to risk stepping out of whatever comfort zone you are in. Risk going beyond whatever box you are living in. If you are not happy in that box, let’s help you step outside of it. Let’s help you take actions and steps where you are able to find your greatness. My goal is to help you look in the mirror and LOVE the person you see. I want you to be excited by the person you see and use your greatness to inspire others.
