Welcome. Or, welcome back. Let’s pick up where we left off.
Here we are on day 188 of this living experiment.
Lots of things have happened since I last wrote publicly. As some of you may know I pushed pause on my blog back in November when I decided to pivot and take a full time job. I was asked to devote 100 % of my time to the organization. I embraced the risk and made the decision to let my website expire, refer out the clients I’d been working with and prepare for this next chapter in my life. I was so excited for this new opportunity to learn and grow with a team of high energy, ambitious people working towards a common goal. I was enjoying the work, getting a ton of positive feedback and felt like I was assimilating well into my new role.
But, on January 6th life took another sharp turn. I received a video call from the CEO of the company and in less than a minute my role with them was over! No cause, no explanation, no warning just a “I’m letting you go.” Click.
I’ve never experienced anything like it, and I hope I never have to again. It felt so inhumane and was a complete shock to my system. It took a few days for me to recalibrate, re-orient and decide how I wanted to move forward.
Here we are a little over a month later. In retrospect it was one of the best things that’s ever happened. Afterall, it stoked the fire that burns within, expanded possibilities, and strengthened my resolve in my purpose. I finally remembered that I can build my business working with ambitious, high energy people and work towards a common goal: people getting to live in their purpose and up the joy in their own lives in service of others. There’s no doubt I can do it, but I’ve accepted that I can’t do it alone (nor do I want to). My aim is to bring together a community of like-hearted people and cultivate a culture that cares, likes to explore and wants to play for something bigger and better.
The support, compassion and generosity I’ve received has bolstered my hope, and amplified the joy in my life. It’s given me exactly what I need to believe in this new beginning and I want to share it with you.
So, I want to re-start by welcoming you to this new space. Let this be the portal that allows us all to connect and explore together. My wish is for us to learn and play our way to ever-better experiences, relationships and possibilities in life.
I invite you to joining me, reach out, ask for help, engage in this opportunity to go where you haven’t been before, to discover more than you thought existed, to challenge what you know and how you see thingsYou can expect a fundamental shift in the way you feel, think, and act in service of something much larger than you.
