On. The. Money. This ladies are nothing short of that. We had a great talk about the psychology of money and how we earn/spend our dollars. All of us are in different stages of our career and successful in our own definition we set for ourselves.
Most of us are entrepreneurs and took the leap of starting a business. It was therapeutic to talk about the uncertainty of it all and how the initial setup is ultimately spending money and NOT making money. However the high when you see your efforts pay off is unmeasurable. In our discussion, we talked about not always getting paid with money. Many times you are paid in connections to other people, invitations to events, or the freedom.
One of the ladies is changing her career path, she has been practicing her business for many years. She moved out to Colorado and decided – Hey, I want to put that down and do something different. It was energizing seeing someone evolve right in front of you. We discussed what to do when you are ready to change your path and how to reinvent yourself. She left that day with a new career and a new spring in her step. That alone made the day triumphant.
HOWEVER, it did not stop there. A successful lady, who is not an entrepreneur, gave us atta-girls for our fearlessness in starting a business. She expressed that not everyone are entrepreneurs in spirit and it is still possible to live your life’s mission without being a business owner. This woman is a living testimony to that truth. If you are ambitious and recognize opportunities as they present themselves, you can do what you are passionate about. Her career has granted her the freedom to help people, create community, and work with people who are able to make a difference in our everyday lives.
Very grateful for the time I get to spend with these ladies. Unsure what the American Dream is, however I know what’s mine. We are living ours truly…
Living the Dream. Define your own.
