Passionate About Helping Others
After completing college and successfully earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, I landed a job at a retail store. Wait! What?! Yup, you read that right. You see, I was swindled by the idea of the "American dream" that if I went to school, I'd immediately land a fancy corporate job. But, the truth was, that's not what happened. After graduating, I applied to lord knows how many jobs in the business world only to get so many "nos" I couldn't fathom any more rejection, especially as someone who suffered low self-esteem and shyness for years. Even after I managed to switch jobs five years into my retail career to become an office manger at a wealth management company, I still wasn't living the dream that I deserved. I was unhappy, unfulfilled, and frankly, uninspired. But, all that changed once I discovered my purpose.
Now it took YEARS of grueling away doing work I didn't enjoy and getting paid at a low rate while building up my side hustle to get where I am now. This is the reason why I enjoy coaching woman entrepreneurs on how to create and grow purpose driven businesses. My purpose journey wasn't easy, but it was sure worth the fulfillment, happiness, and passion filled life that I am experiencing now.
