There must be more than this (provincial?) life
Like Belle sang in Beauty and the Beast, have you ever wondered if there’s more to this life?
That perhaps God must have more in store for you than working the typical 9-5?
That was me back in 2016.
When my baby girl came into this world, she changed my reality forever.
Before her, I was on the typical path in life. I had studied hard, got a degree and was on climbing up the corporate ladder. From the outside, my life looked pretty great. I had a great corporate job, nice house and beautiful family. It was everything my parents wanted for me as a child.
But I still felt miserable, like something was missing. I felt like there was more to this life.
I wanted to be more and do more for my family than just average.
I wanted to MORE time.
Time to spend with the people I loved the most – my husband and kids. I was tired to giving them my emotional leftovers.
Time to make an impact outside of my family. I didn’t just want to live an average life. I wanted to live a life of SIGNIFICANCE. One that made a difference in the lives of others.
I didn’t want to just tell my girls to pursue their dreams and that they could change the world. I wanted to BE the example. For them to see mum chasing her dreams and changing the world.
I know money does not buy happiness but money can give you options. For me, it was the possibility of the option to stay at home with my kids. For you, it might be the option to travel the world without having to ask permission from a boss. Or it could be saving the elephants in Africa.
Money does not buy happiness but I knew that once I got money out of the way, I would be able to gain control of my own time and do what I was passionate about.
That’s where I started look for a way to make more money on the side. People around me said it was just a fantasy. That my dreams were CRAZY.
THE CONNECTION THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING
My life changed the day I got connected to a values driven couple.
There was something very attractive about them. It wasn’t their beautiful family, beautiful home or beautiful car.
But it was that they were living in the MORE that I knew was possible. They were chasing their dreams and making a tangible impact around them.
They had been able to create financial independence. To get money out of the way, so they could live a life based on the values that were important to them.
My husband and I knew, we just had to learn EVERYTHING they knew. We pursued the relationship like CRAZY and when we found out they took a handful of people on each year to mentor, we were like PLEASE teach us!
Long story short, we went through a qualification process to earn their mentorship. Now they are mentoring us in life, to build an asset on the side that will give us the option to live a life based on values that are important to us – being full-time mum and dad.
What would you do with your life if you didn’t NEED to go to a job for money?
Would you design your life differently?
So here begins our journey, going from corporate ladder climber to entrepreneur living life by design.
I invite you to join me on this journey.
I promise to share what I learn along the way.
If you want to be more and live a life of significance, join me on this journey.
I was made for MORE.
YOU were made for MORE.
So let’s BE more and grow the best selves that we were CREATED to be!
It’s GREAT to meet you my new friend.
Please do reach out and let me know about YOUR story and journey.
I would LOVE to connect with others on the personal growth journey and add value or help you out in any way I can.
Lots of love,
