Looking into the face of another mother – I was haunted. She reminded me of a woman that used to look back at me in the mirror 2 years ago. She reminded me how it felt to be completely lost and defeated. It made me feel so grateful to my business that helped me to find myself.
I remember the feeling vividly. I was a fairly new Mum. I had my 2 boys fairly close together, and I loved them more fiercely than I knew possible. But as much as I loved them, as much as I dearly wanted these two incredible little human beings, I needed more. I felt tired as every day seemed to merge into the next. I remembered thinking ‘is this it for me now?’
At a time that I thought should be the most joyful, I didn’t feel joy. I felt lost. It was like my life was over and it was all about them. I never resented it but I longed for more.
Without realising it at the time, I actually started a journey. To lift my spirits I listened to podcasts which helped with my mindset. I started to believe I could have more – but what? At that time I didn’t have a clue.
I had labelled myself the ex-career girl, the ex-entrepreneur – but little did I realise I was far from EX.
In this live broadcast, you can listen to me describe how it felt.
Another 8 months down the line, I discovered the world of online marketing, and I have not looked back.
Fast forward to now, I’m a 6 figure earner, thanks to the support of my husband and family I was able to make a life changing trip to Maui.
But the best bit is this. I am vibrant and full of energy – and I love spending time with my family. This journey has made ME a better Mum.
