When I was gearing up to leave my 9-5 and jump full-time into my first dream business, I couldn't wait.
I had spent the majority of my early/mid 20’s building client portfolio talking about interest rates and quoting the minister of finance.
To leave this paper pushing life behind in favour of being the photographer I dreamed of as a little girl, was both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time.
June 1, 2012 was my first day as an official full time local + destination wedding photographer. I couldn’t believe it!! I jumped out of bed with a pep in my step, excited at what the day would bring.
And it what it brought, were crickets.
It had never really occurred to me that I would miss going to my 9-5. Not because of the work, but because of the people.
We were like our own little family in my office, and there was not a single day that we didn’t gut ourselves laughing at least 3 times. The kind of laugh that catapults you into an awesome mood, no matter what you were feeling moments before.
And I learned then, that becoming an entrepreneur who desires worldwide impact, can be lonely at times.
In fact, the bigger the dream you are chasing, the more isolated you might actually feel.
Because not a lot of women are like you, beauty.
I know you desire to live a life of big passion, and purpose. To have a great and positive impact in the world, in your own meaningful way.
And I also know what it’s like to get the deer-in-headlights look when you tell most people about your dreams.
I’ve spent the majority of my entrepreneurial life feeling alone, isolated, and that no one really understood me or could relate directly with me.
It even had me second guessing myself, and my dreams…
But, as the universe always does, I was supported by being shown a way to go after my dreams AND have a team of encouraging soul sisters who were going on a similar journey of their own.
We would celebrate eachother’s successes instead of feeling guilty about sharing them.
We would raise each other up, when one of us faltered.
We would be there for each other 24/7, no matter where in the world we were, or what time of day it was.
I had no idea there were other people like me out there that could really relate to the internal battle raging inside of someone who dares take action beyond their comfort zone. I thought there were only the people who didn’t have any plans of leaving their zone, and the ones who already made it and were already super successful with their dreams.
Finding a small empowering community of women with dreams as big as mine, that were still new to the process of creating them, was life altering for me.
And this is what I want for you, gorgeous.
I want you to know you’re not alone.
I want you to know there are women out there in the world who feel just as isolated as you, but that together, we can soar.
We can cheer you on when your ego is taking over. We can remind you of your why, and protect you from doubting yourself when no one around you, understands you.
We will give you tips and tools and wisdom so you don’t have to go through the struggles we have already wasted precious time on, for you.
We can show you it’s possible.
We believe in your dreams.
We believe in you, beautiful.
It’s time you make a bold move on behalf of your dreams, beauty. It’s time to discover all that life can be, and all that you truly are capable of in this life. And it’s time for you to feel fully supported on your journey to the top.
Let’s rise together <3
Follow Your Heart Always,
PS - I’m taking a group of women who desire to get clear on their purpose + positively impact the world with their online business on a journey of a LIFETIME - from getting clear on their purpose, through the launch of their brand new online business. It’s one thing to be supported by the universe through the opening of a door, beauty - But it’s up to you and your free will to walk though it. Is this the door you’ve been waiting for?
