I began my journey as an entrepreneur at age 19, and had I known about homeschooling, I would have become an entrepreneur much sooner.
From a very early age I felt like something was missing, like I wasn’t being told the whole story. I was constantly searching for more; I just knew that for me, cars, external beauty, college and white picket fences were not all that life had to offer. I was determined to stay true to my passions, and find the fulfillment and happiness that I longed for.
And that is why graduating from high school, is still to this day, the absolute happiest day of my life!
Back to my first business at 19. You know how people say “You can never niche too much”, well I think I figured it out. When I started my all girls skateboard company with my twin sister Tiffany, we were quite literally all the girls who skateboarded that we knew of or could find, and we looked! We even tried to convert our cheerleader friend into a skateboarder, that failed. It took a couple of years before we spotted another of our kind.
All that said, we forged a path into a truly male dominated industry and catalyzed a movement where there was none. Years in we had major male skateboard companies not only sponsoring our video productions, but seeking to collaborate with us.
Since that time I have had a number of other entrepreneurial adventures. I went on to co-create a very successful, multiple 6 figure, permaculture, farming and primitive skills program, as well as a ½ a million dollar a year business with my, then husband, that included mentoring, workshops, online courses/trainings, speaking engagements and more.
I say all this not to toot my own horn, but to share that staying on purpose, having more than enough money and sharing your gifts is more than possible.
My ultimate passion and continued journey is to live an integrated life, where I feel fulfilled in my many roles; from mother to business owner. I truly believe that how you do one thing is how you do everything.
I lived for many years as if this wasn’t true, but the only person I was fooling was myself. It pains me to reflect on how much of my life, and my children’s lives, I missed in busyness and constant overwhelm.
I don’t regret it, but instead use the deep sadness and grief I feel about my loss, to fuel my commitment to living life on my terms; fully and with a great deal of presence.
I am all about having it all and thriving!
If you want this too, then you have come to the right place. You don’t have to give up on your dreams, and you don’t have to sacrifice yourself, your family or your happiness to live them.
I know that my purpose is to show you how, and help you avoid the costly mistakes that I have made along the way.
You can have prosperity, you can be on purpose and you can fully enjoy every aspect of your life!
