New Adventures, New Business

Finding my passion was something that eluded me for so long. I was never sure which direction to go and what I really wanted out of life. Then one day I took a long hard look at the path I was on and decided that it just was not for me and something needed to change. I changed, I experimented with a number of different paths thinking these were the right paths for me. I went back to school to obtain a Master’s degree but after finally deciding on a program, I knew it was not for me. Then I read the book that literally put me on the path that I am on now. #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. The book not only inspired me to want to start my own business but put me on the path that I was sure I was meant to walk down. If you haven’t read this book, it is a must for anyone wanting to live a passion filled life. I took so much from it that I immediately started devouring all types of content on starting my own business. Now this was not the first time that I had attempted to start my own business. My first adventure into business ownership was in my early twenties, but then I did not have the wherewithal to work hard and strive for business success because everyone and everything around me said that that was not how it was done. I gave it up. But that early passion for having my own business never went away and followed me all the way to now where I not only find myself with one business but now two. The decision to start a new business adventure was one driven by a need and desire to live my ideal life on my own terms. I wanted a life of my own choosing. I manifested the courage to put myself out on a new adventure fraught with uncertainty because the opportunity to help others resonates very strongly with me and brings me joy like I’ve never known. I made the decision, came up with a name, and built a website. And love girl pink media was born. My main goal for this business is to empower women, give them the necessary inspiration and tools they need to live a passion filled life of their own choosing. Sure, there are a million coaches out there for business, career and personal development; how does my business stand out from the rest? It stands out because I have my own unique techniques for empowering women, my individual knowledge and experiences of the past forty-one years gives me an edge and an advantage. Do I purport to having all the answers? Absolutely not, but I guarantee that I will find the answer if you ask. Nevertheless, I took the leap of faith because it fills me with nothing but satisfaction to help another. As I continue to grow both of my businesses, I know that determination is my cornerstone to this passionate life.

My Passionate Life

This is me…

…and this is my passionate life.

What does it mean to have a passionate life, to live the life of your dreams? What it means is peace of mind. It means a contentment you cannot find anywhere else except from where it radiates from deep inside of you. Does it mean the perfect day or the perfect job? Not necessarily, because even the most successful people in the world have a bad day every one in a while. It is what you decide to do with that day that makes all the difference in whether you are living passionately or not. I've learned it is all about the mindset; what you choose to think about your life from day to day. When I first started Pend Publishing I had nothing but doubts, but I knew it was the path that I wanted to walk down and I had to make that passion my purpose if I wanted to live the remarkable life I had always dreamed of. So I launched it, before anything was concrete, I had a name and a website, the only thing I didn't have were clients. So I knew I needed to hustle, where do I find these clients, are they on Facebook, on Twitter, Instagram? I did ads and marketed the business the best I could, but I was flopping still. Then I reached out to a marketing company to help me market this flailing business and came to realize that I had no clue who my ideal client was. Who were they, who was the man or woman who would need my services. And I literally had no clue. So I took a step back, reexamined the business I was trying to build, and began building instead the perfect client. Who were they, were they smart? Were they ambitious? Where did they live? What were their hobbies? Etc. And only after that did my business begin to make sense to me again. Then did the hustle feel right. And the passion returned, my purpose became clear and I started living the life I knew I was capable of living. This is me, living a passionate life.
