I will be sharing lots of details about my online journey to creating a successful business throughout this site. I'll take this space to share all the odd little bits that fit together to make me me.
Pretty much since day one, I have been incredibly awkward, painfully shy, socially anxious, a tireless overthinker and general scaredy cat.
In 1999 I got the great idea to throw myself into another country and travel alone in the hopes that I would overcome all of the above.
It didn't work, but I did fall in love with the culure and lifestyle in Mexico and so decided to become awkward in a new language.
I guess you could say that I'm a rather late bloomer, because it wasn't until I was 43 that I had my first baby, followed by a second at 45. The medical term for this would be "geriatric pregnancy" which always makes me feel awesome. (As my 6 year old would say "When you say 'awesome' you really mean 'not awesome' since we speak English, Spanish, and Sarcasm in our home)
I certainly don't think of myself as any kind of expert, but while I struggled through so much over the years (depression, anxiety, zero self worth, lack of direction, no money... sadly, this list could go on for a while), I always fixated on finding my way out and helping others who feel alone or hopeless with similar struggles.
Obviously, a big focus for me is sharing with others how to create an online business because there is so much power and freedom once you can do that. Of course, you can't be a hot mess and expect success, so you do need to work on the mental and emotional side of you first. Been there, still doing that.
My kids say that I'm pretty smart and they both think that I give pretty solid advice. Since I always trust what small kids say, I took the leap to awkwardly put myself waaaay out there and share what I can just in case you may be someone who could use a gentle nudge, a push, or a full on shove.
So, here I am. Here you are. And here we go!
