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.
