Five years ago this month, I was teetering on the edge.
Living off dwindling savings. Eating food from the care packages my mom sent me.
At an intersection between staying at the startup company where I had not been paid for 5 months...
Or moving into a bigger life.
I was at a juncture, not knowing which way to turn. But I felt like it was time to say goodbye.
Goodbye to working for "the man" - making other people's dreams come true.
Goodbye to long hours, no vacation, little pay, stressful bosses, and wondering "is this all there is?"
Goodbye to looking like I "had it all" on the outside and on the inside, feeling like I was stifled, unfulfilled and inauthentic.
It was time to say hello.
Hello to stepping forward into my dreams.
Hello to launching my own company, where I could live and work from anywhere, anytime, any day, any way (and so could my team!)
Hello to working with clients that I was passionate about, serving and delivering life-changing work that would change their businesses forever.
But I didn't know how.
Then someone told me about B-School with Marie Forleo. All I knew was, I needed results... fast.
I felt like I was crazy, not just taking a step into the unknown, but rather throwing myself off a cliff.
You are going to hear me talking a lot about B-School in February. Like a lot, a lot.
B-School was the pivotal catalyst that forever changed the trajectory of my life. And I want to share it with you, so you get the behind-the-scenes story of what it was really like launching my company, Appleseed Communications.
Spoiler alert: Appleseed Communications is turning 5 years old! *cue the birthday balloons* I beat the odds. (And you can, too.)
