Did you always want to be an entrepreneur and start your own company?
I am a Capricorn sun and moon and libra rising with multiple Capricorn placements in my birth chart I was born to be my own boss. Did I know that this is where I would be or dreamt of this from early on nope but I will say my main focus in my life was to help others and that is exactly what I have done and continue to do no matter what way my career goes.
What were you doing before?
I Graduated college from the social service worker program and was working in a nursing home as an activity aid, physio assistant and provided restorative care seriously loved my job and so thankful for that journey.
When did you decide to make the switch?
Well this is where my story turns into my magical adventure. I struggled with infertility for three years and was blessed with twins. I was on maternity leave still when I found out I was pregnant again I went back to work when I was pregnant with two 6-month olds at home. I will be honest paying daycare for three babies I would be working for free and the husband and I agreed that we wanted one of us to be home with our babies something we never had growing up. So I became a stay at home mom. This lead to me learning more about my spiritual gifts and connecting with spirit and discovering who I am as a person.
What gave you the idea for your business?
Well to be honest it’s been an ongoing journey of learning and my business is always shifting I like to say spirit is the boss and if any of you are lightworkers you will know exactly what I mean when I say this. It has been me healing parts of myself and allowing my intuition and guidance from spirit lead the way.
How would you describe your brand?
Like no other and honestly mind-blowing. Whenever I do readings and spirit brings forward the exact message my client needs in that moment bring me tears of happiness and pure joy. I’ve Created a safe learning space for other women and have given them a sense of belonging and a community I am forever grateful.
What was your biggest hurdle in starting your own business?
I will say people thinking I am crazy. But now I rely don’t care because I’m healing and working with so many beautiful souls it out weighs what any of the negative could possibly be.
Can you give us an overview of what a normal workday is like for you?
Well I still have three toddlers at home so when they all nap is when I am doing readings, creating content, coaching etc. Once my babies are in bed for the evening is when I will put in a few more hours. On weekends when my husband is home, I will utilize this time to get caught up on anything that’s needed. This is only temporary and my kids will be in school before I know it so when they nap mama is building her empire.
What is your 5-year goal for your business?
You know I try not to look to far ahead and I know my business is constantly changing as spirit guides me in different ways. But I will say to continue to be of service to others and spirit.
What is one piece of advice for you have for other women who want to start their own business?
Take the first step you can do it. Leave the inner critic and self-doubt behind and believe in yourself and believe that anything is possible you are so amazing !
