The life you want is there waiting for you, all you have to do is take the first step.
5 years ago my husband and I were burnt out. We had a baby on the way and we were tired of the rat race. We wanted to get ahead, but both of us were in careers where we traded time for money. It was impossible to make more money without working more hours, and that’s the opposite of what we wanted to do.
Unexpectedly, 7 months into my pregnancy I had a terrible shoulder injury that stopped me in my tracks. I was unable to work and I didn’t have a back up plan... yikes!
Then when my daughter was born I realized immediately that I didn’t want to go back to the way life was before. I didn’t want to miss out on singing her to sleep at night and reading her stories... because I was at work. I didn’t want to miss out on weekends camping, days at the beach or family birthdays and barbecues... because I was working. That’s not the life I wanted to live being her mom.
I realized times were changing and to get ahead I had to figure out how to create an online business... one problem, I didn’t have any experience, education or skills in that area.
But one thing I was open to doing was learning a new skill or way of working that would create the life I was dreaming of... one where I could make as much money as I wanted, on my own time with no schedule. Where I could consciously raise my daughter and spend more time with my husband. I wanted to be able to travel whenever I wanted, give back to charity and my community, and help others along the way.
Another factor is that my husband and I have always been entrepreneurs and we know that having multiple streams of income is one of the smartest ways to create freedom and stability during uncertain times.
We also believed whole heartedly in clean living, optimizing our health through healthy choices in the food we eat, the supplements we take, and know that it is the pinnacle of living the good life.
So we learned how to hedge our bets, and make decisions based on how we wanted to live our life, not on where our next pay cheque came from. We are living in a slash culture where we get to harness our gifts, and do what we love in all aspects of our lives as we create an income around our lifestyle and not the other way around.
Since the day we decided to change it all, we’ve paid off all of our debt, sold our house in the city for our dream acreage in the country, set up multiple streams of income and live like we are retired in our thirties.
Real estate, investments, brick & mortar business (we planted 500 apple trees and are going to plant 500 more for our long term legacy project - an estate cidery), social marketing, health coaching, business coaching, consulting, public speaking, authoring... are all things we have or do to create the life we love.
So if we can help you with any of our life experience over the past few years as we create our dream life, help you run towards yours... just ask. I’m always up for a conversation.
And I’d you’ve read this far... it means you’re curious enough to have a conversation so don’t hesitate and message me right now.
