On a recent trip through downtown, as we approached the noteworthy views of the Pittsburgh city skyline my daughter exclaimed “Look mommy your old work building” – and she turned to Colt and shared “Mommy used to work there but she didn’t get to see me very much”
And while that comment half tugged at my heart strings and left me filled with guilt – because I did in fact MISS the majority of her first two years of life – it also was a gentle reminder…to give gratitude that many years ago – I followed my heart.
I left my career behind with no back up plan so I could be a more present mom than I had been the two years prior and a just a year after that found this opportunity.
I didn’t realize it then but looking back I now BELIEVE this opportunity was INTENTIONALLY placed in front of me because this is where I am meant to be.
I was a working mom THEN and I am a working mom NOW…but its different.
The career of coaching was never something I sought.
I had no idea the term “network marketing company” even existed but that’s what I joined…I signed up and I have never looked back.
3 years in – and I am leading a top team in the entire COMPANY – grateful that I followed my heart.
I traded in my suit pants for yoga pants.
And while my rise and grind time still starts at 5am – my days look much different than they did a few years ago.
It has taken many late nights and early mornings but I designed the life I love…
A life that led me to find a NEW FOUND passion in life
A life that allows me to continuously help others while always working on becoming a better version of myself
And a life that allows me to be PRESENT in the lives my family – of my children and with my husband.
I realize that this job isn’t for everyone but I learned a few years ago – that this glass slipper, or shall I say nike – FITS…so we roll with it.
If you don’t LOVE your career or the lifestyle you’re leading…only YOU have the power to make a change.
No one else can do the work for you.
And when in doubt…take the road less traveled. It’s never crowded
