I am so excited to be starting this new venture, and to be able to use my business background to help women start “heart-centered” businesses, also called “social enterprises”, that make a profit and make a difference in the lives of others.
After almost 20 years in the corporate world gaining great experiences, I feel that I am finally standing on my path, and doing the work that I am meant to be doing. And I am excited to be able to help others succeed by utilizing my experiences, gifts and passions.
I believe that many of us follow paths set out for us by others who are all well intentioned. But sometimes we find that we end up on a path that is not really our own. As a result we aren’t happy or fulfilled, and my experience has been that it is exhausting and can at times lead to resentment. In addition, I think that when we are on this path that isn’t our own, we can feel really stuck, like we don’t have many choices, like we can’t go back or choose another path. What I have come to learn through my own journey over the past couple of years, is that we always have a choice.
Every day we have a choice to continue to do what we have always done, or to listen to our hearts and make the necessary changes that will lead us closer to the path we are meant to be on.
My intention with this blog is to share my experiences, insights, and lessons learned through working with others, maybe not unlike yourself, who want to find work that fits into their life, who want to find their way back to their own path, who want to make a difference through the work that they do, who want to start or grow a successful business providing goods or services that make a difference in the world, and who want to have a lot of fun and cultivate more joy in the process!
It is my hope that this blog will be informative, that it will resonate with you, and that it will be the starting point for building a community of like-minded women who will come together to support each other in realizing our dreams, and fully and passionately using our unique gifts to contribute to a better world. In the process it is my hope that we have a lot more fun, learn to laugh more, learn to be kinder to and more compassionate with ourselves and others, and spend more days than not letting our hearts be our guide and trusting that the universe will be there to support us in living the life of our dreams!
