I cannot wait to work with you...

1️⃣1️⃣ years ago I resigned from my job as an Elementary Principal to pursue a business venture. 

19 months later, that business venture failed and I heard a lot of “I told you so”, and “I knew she shouldn't have quit her job." 🙄

Here’s the deal, I learned a lot about life, myself, and my career path in that short 19 months. That journey is a lot like the path to my entrepreneurial journey. 

I heard a lot of “she must be crazy”. Even my former boss said, “Well if it doesn’t work out you can always come back here”. 😂Who would have known, 9 years later I’d be living my truth and my life as I designed it! Thank God I didn’t listen to “They”.🙌🏾

🚨Stop letting fear of what others think hold you back! Stop letting the fear of failing keep you from getting started! Failure is a necessary part of your journey.

💡Remember: A broke mind needs proof. An open mind just needs an opportunity.🔥🔥
