Long story short? I know business. I’ve run multiple businesses of my own for TEN years and mentored solopreneurs and multi-million dollar companies alike.
Yeah, you could say I’ve earned my chops.
But here’s the real story behind Recipe for Success…
2 years ago, I gave up the comfort of my corporate 9-to-5 gig after more than 13 years with the same team (where I helped mentor several businesses from the ground up) to build an online mentoring business to help women like you overcome fear, self-doubt, and limiting beliefs and learn the steps it takes to stand out and be successful.
I have an undying passion for helping Moms overcome the fear of being Mom-shamed and set boundaries around growing both a business and babies. (You might say I get a little Momma Bear on this topic. See what I did there? ;) )
But that’s not to say building a thriving home-based business came easily to me.
See, when I was first planning to shimmy away from my stable, 6-figure plus job, I had a vision of creating an EPIC online business. I wanted to change lives on a big scale.
But TBH? The methods I was taught initially went against my integrity and made me feel Icky.
I had to learn a few lessons the hard way, including the fact that not all resources and programs are created equal. And #allthethings we’re told we SHOULD DO? They aren’t always right for us.
Just like when it comes health and weight loss (my first loves), I have found that there’s no ONE way that works for everyone.
When I first jumped into working for myself, I wasn’t plugged into any sort of formal training, so I scrounged and scrambled and became a "course junkie.”
Yup, I was that girl–signing up for every program I could get my hands on, only to find myself more confused and overwhelmed at the end.
(I was later told it’s NORMAL to be completely overwhelmed the first 3-6 months. Say what?)
I would get so frustrated because every coach/guru/colleague I followed had a different recipe. So, I sampled them all.
But honestly? This was just a recipe for disaster for me.
I knew I had to find another way. I knew I had to think outside the box. I knew I had to find other ways to make things happen.
And I knew I had to prove all my naysayers wrong...and prove myself right.
‘Cause that’s another thing I learned the hard way: Not everyone will get it, or get you.
Not everyone will understand why you “want to go back to work” when you have little ones at home.
Not everyone will get your ambitious nature, your drive, your UNDYING PASSION to DO MORE.
Not everyone will be happy for you when you start a new venture, or get your welcome kit in the mail from your network marketing company, or your first blog post goes viral.
I learned it was just as important to surround myself with incredible people as it was to find the “right” kind of mentorship for me.
Listen: It’s soooo easy to lose our identities when we become moms. I know I did.
But this business, the one I’m running today?
It gave me LIFE again. I’m a living, breathing, booger-wiping example that it IS possible to have both–the sweet kids (who I get to spend amazing QT with) and a thriving business I work on approximately 12-20 hours a week that fulfills me.
It’s okay to want to uplevel. It’s okay to want to do more, be more and have more.
Because yes, you’re a momma. But you’re also a human, too.
The good news?
In time, I found my own confidence and opened my eyes to new ideas and options that gave me results!
I soon learned that if what you NEED TO or SHOULD DO isn't working, or feels hard, heavy and forced... its ok to set those rules on fire and think outside the box.
And when I did just that? I saw my income spike, felt great about WHAT and HOW I was generating my business, and finally could be completely REAL with my clients and myself!
Today, I show up and deliver my message and expertise from a truly aligned place, and with integrity every day– and it feels so damn good!
In the end, I spent over $20k learning what I know about building an online business (not including my Business Degree–oh yeah, I have one of those, too!).
I created Recipe for Success to save you the time and heartache of trying #allthethings and to share my outside-the-box strategies, plus the mistakes and lessons I learned, so you can take the fast track to home-based business success!
I also created Recipe for Success because I know from personal experience how incredible an intimate Mastermind can be. When you have a built-in support team–a group of women who know what you are going through and who are HAPPY to lift you up and encourage you along the way–something magical happens. The connection you create and cultivate with these women is something that not many will experience in their lives.
I can say that without my own #highvibetribe, my own entrepreneurial journey would’ve been a whole lot harder. If I hadn't invested in myself, if I hadn't networked with these women I would not be the Confident Business Women I am right now. The company, comradery, true friendships and HIGH VIBES these ladies bring into my life is truly PRICELESS.
Basically? I’ve packaged up my entire step-by-step system (recipes, if you will) so you can get everything you need at a more modest investment, once.
And now? I’m forking it over to you (lovingly, of course).
