What if....?

Have you ever asked yourself: “What if…” and then took that leap of faith and believed in yourself to take that next step? I would love to hear your experience!

Professionally, there have been two times that stand out where I took that leap even though it was unknown territory and I had massive butterflies and a good amount of healthy fear about whether it would work out or not!

The first “what if” was when my husband and I were first married and I had finished my second year of teaching middle school in Colorado and we made the commitment to move to NYC with zero jobs lined up. I’m a huge planner so this was definitely an exercise in trust for me. It was terrifying, exhilarating, exhausting, exciting and, gratefully, it turned out beautifully. By the time we left NYC, I had been promoted multiple times and moved from the reception desk to being a Director of Human Resources on the East Coast, overseeing five states and over twenty five facilities and 1,400 employees. It all worked out phenomenally, but it was a huge leap of faith.

The second time I asked myself “What if” was when I was a brand new mom and wondered if I could have success in direct sales. I didn’t make the final decision until I sat eyeball to eyeball with our owner and founder at her kitchen table and asked her every question I could think of and more. A couple minutes into our conversation, I felt completely at ease with who she was and so I decided to trust my abilities and try something I had never done before. After all, the start-up cost was affordable and the risk was low. Since I had vetted our owner, I knew I could trust her and I believed in her vision. Instead of creating natural products to go direct to a retail store shelf, she chose the more complicated path of selling her products via direct sales so she could impact individual’s lives on a personal level. She chose the tougher path for herself to make a BIGGER impact for individuals like myself. I was all in and made the decision to believe in myself. I started my journey with a team of one and now have the privilege of working with hundreds on my team and I grow and learn new business ideas every single day. I’m never bored and there is always something to learn and I feel appreciated and valued.

Have you ever asked yourself, “What if?” Have you taken a leap of faith that made all the difference? That last sentence reminded me of Robert Frost’s poem that I always shared with my students: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

One of the best things about working for myself is that I have been able to decide how to work and when to work so this fit in beautifully when I had babies who napped sometimes and not other times, and it also works now. I don’t have to miss any of the important events with my family and I never have to get anyone to ‘cover my shift’ since I determine my schedule and define what success means to me.

What could this mean for you? Let me know if you would like to have a conversation and if I can help you determine if this could be your “What if” moment!

p.s. We have something special happening, so let me know if you would like me to message you the fun details. Simply comment below or send me a pm if you want to hear about it. (Hint: it is only available for a few days)

Here is to BELIEVING that your “What if…..” will turn out phenomenal for you.
