Corporate Independence Day

vision Mar 05, 2019

One year ago this week, I quit my corporate oil career. “Knees weak, arms are heavy there’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti. He’s nervous but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting what he wrote down...

This Eminem intro song perfectly sums me up on the morning I quit my corporate career. Well, everything but the vomit and the fact that I am a she.

I had spent five years building relationships, climbing the corporate ladder, getting accolades and performance bonuses. This was going to be a bomb.

The day had come, the day I had been counting down for a year. IT WAS HAPPENING! Honestly, I felt like a little kid asking for permission to go to the bathroom in class. But, I had made the decision to do this thing.

I told my boss calmly and confidently that I had the opportunity to start my own business and if I didn’t do it, I would always regret it. I was met with stunned silence, and then the question…

“Are you sure?”

Yes. I had never been more scared in my entire life, but I was sure.

I was sure that my time could be better spent than in meetings and marching to orders

I was sure I was done with the mansplaining and the constant direction

I was sure that I wanted to have more control over my time than 3 weeks of vacation

I was sure that I was done dreading Monday

I was sure that I needed to make a change

I was sure that this ‘pull on my heart’ was something I needed to follow -> yes I am completely aware of how ridiculously corny this sounds

I was sure that I was ready to bet on myself

I was sure that I would make it work

I was sure I wanted to do something MEANINGFUL, something that fulfilled me.

I was sure I could figure it out.

But I wasn’t always sure, in fact for five years I wasn’t sure, and it took me one full year of saving up like a chipmunk to be sure. It took a LOT and I mean a LOT of mindset work to be sure.

“I'm not afraid, To take a stand, Everybody, Come take my hand. We'll walk this road together, through the storm. Whatever weather, cold or warm. Just letting you know that you're not alone. Holler if you feel like you've been down the same road.” Eminem is honestly a lyrical genius.

If you want to walk together we can do it together in BALI! 

When I was building my business I wished there was something that existed where I could build my business quickly, because I was time poor.  Get hands on support, because I had no idea what the hell I was doing. Where I could unplug from corporate and find people who GOT what I was going through, because no one understood why I needed something more. Something I could do in a cool place, because I only got two weeks off a year and I'd love to explore somewhere new and get out of my current environment. 

I couldn't find it, so I created it with all of that and more The Business Builder Immersion Retreat in Bali is open for applications. Want to come with? Holler.
