Intention is the vantage point from which I view everything. From how I live and work, to how I encourage my clients to market themselves, to the brands I choose to buy from and support. Intention is about slowing ourselves down enough to actually have a clear aim.

YOU’RE HERE BECAUSE YOU’VE ALWAYS FELT LIKE YOU WERE MADE FOR MORE…  

You were put on this earth to do amazing things, but right now, you find yourself doing everything but what you were destined to do.

I’d say we have something in common! 

After only two years working in the corporate world, I got that feeling. You know the one I’m talking about, right? That feeling of disconnect, an indescribable pull in another direction, a gut-wrenching realization that you’re not in the right place. And while you’ve acknowledged this feeling, you’ve also resisted it because of all of the time, money & energy you’ve already invested in pursuing this path. But you know you can’t ignore it any longer. You desperately want to feel that alignment again and to re-connect with your core purpose. But you’re totally lost, confused and feeling majorly stuck on how to move forward.

I GOT YOU, GIRL.

I’m here to hand you the road map and guide you along the often rocky road of entrepreneurship. 

I’ve experienced the burnout and the all-consuming overwhelm that tends to surface when trying to build a full-time business on a part-time schedule. Living the double life of employee/entrepreneur wasn’t easy. 

I dreamt of the day where I could march into my boss’s office, hand in my letter of resignation and start living a freedom-based lifestyle, completely by my own design. But I knew that if I really wanted to get my business off the ground I had to let go of my DIY mentality and get the support that I needed. While this had me literally leaping outside of my comfort zone, I knew it would be game-changing. And so it was!

Here are some of the things that I did:

  • I hired my own personal mentor when it didn’t make sense financially on paper, putting myself into debt for the first time in my life and two months before my wedding.
  • I worked on my mindset and wealth consciousness like my life depended on it, focusing every day on breaking down the limiting beliefs that had kept me stuck for so long.
  • I let go of my of my perfectionist tendencies and adopted the mantra, “Done is better than perfect” and finally saw my business take off.
  • I honed in on my true talents, skills and unique abilities to craft a business that I’m totally passionate about.

There is nothing special about me though. I’m just a girl who decided to stop waiting, start listening to that voice inside of my head that told me to believe in myself and began taking fierce action every single day.

ABOUT THE WRITER

One part creative, one part strategic, I’m always striving to look at the bigger picture and prioritize what matters most in both my work & my life. The beauty of intention is that, once you become attuned to it, it starts to seep into every aspect of your life. It’s become the vantage point from which I view everything. From how I live and work, to how I encourage my clients to market themselves, to the brands I choose to buy from and support.

Throughout this blog, I'm excited to share inspired ideas and mindful practices that guide us to simplify our lives, yet fill them intentionally. Isn't that what we're all really after? If that's you, too, I think you'll enjoy what you find here. —Happy reading!
