The Reality of Entrepreneurship + Living an Authentic LifeMar 30, 2023
I always looked at 9-5 desk jobs as extremely suffocating 😷 experiences. I deeply feared having to succumb to this lifestyle, which always inspired me to pave my own path. I started working in Fashion PR 👗 fresh out of college, which felt like a huge breath of fresh air at the time. The next job, I become a Yoga Studio Manager 🧘🏼♀️ and had more flexibility in my days and got to wear yoga clothes doing it- dream 🌈. Authenticity has always been super important to me. I never wanted to live my life like how I was seeing the majority of our world living 🦄.
It had always been a dream of mine to be an entrepreneur for this reason. I love the idea of creating my own income, structure and lifestyle 😎. More importantly, I love the freedom to bring my visions to life 🤩. Now this all sounds super fabulous and happens to be the parts that make it worthwhile being an entrepreneur, but, in real life, it is not so glamorous 🤥. The reality of an entrepreneur is that I have regular breakdowns questioning if I can really be successful doing this 😬. I find myself constantly having to tear away from the validation of how many likes I receive on an IG post 😫 or how many people sign up for my programs and offerings. I am incredibly harsh on myself when I don't hit my financial goals and worry about sustaining myself for the next month 😨. I feel lonely at times, behind my computer, not having any co-workers....
I don't speak these truths to put the fear of God in you. I share these to be real, because I am also really good at avoiding these experiences and pretending like everything is rainbows and unicorns 🌈🦄 (ugh, I just really love rainbows and unicorns so much though!). While I truly believe everyone has a unique voice to share, this lifestyle is NOT for the faint hearted, and I like to be up front about the truth of it all.
So how do you know if you were meant to be an entrepreneur and share your unique voice with the world 🧐? One word that I always come back to is - D E V O T I O N. Whenever my self doubt drowns me until I can't breath 😱 and the grief feels as heavy as a brick 🏋️♀️, I come back to why the hell I am doing this in the first place. I am doing this because of my devotion to the big G 😇. I know God has led me on this path to healing for a damn good reason. I wasn't led here by coincidence 🙅🏼♀️, I was purposely meant to experience the deaths and rebirths 🐍 to share that experience and help others transform.
Then, I think about all the women I have guided. I remember the joy I receive when I see women discovering their intuitive gifts 🎁 and using them to reclaim their power. The power they step into when they heal their imbalances and how fucking amazing 🙆♀️ they feel in their mind, body and soul. I come back to the stories of women breaking away from toxic relationships and forging true, meaningful connections 💕. Gosh, I could cry at the bravery the women who have made the choices to divorce their S/O in order to create their own life of fulfillment ⚡️. I recall the women who felt so empowered they decided to bring their own authentic visions to life with writing books 📕 and starting their own businesses 🤓.
Suddenly, the challenges that were holding me back seem so minuscule in the grander scheme of things and as much as I hate admitting it in the moment, it does make it all worth it. If you have already been initiated into your own healing journey, know that your soul has already chosen this path. The pain you are experiencing was only meant to fortify your wisdom and experience as a healer, so you may serve others to doing the same. If you have a seed of desire 🌱 to live like unconventionally like the rest of the world, this path is for you. It will be difficult 🤬. It will require hard work 👷♀️. But it will also you bring the most fulfillment you could ever ask for in this lifetime ✨✨✨.
