How I went from corporate burnout to running a business I love and helping thousands do the same
Building any business takes hard work and perseverance just like a marriage.
But building a business you love and that doesn’t feel like work takes a whole lot more.
This is my Journey
I was working tirelessly covering over 300 cases in addition to the Chief Attorney’s media-sensitive cases praying to find something else, something more fulfilling when I was T-boned in a car accident leaving an agency training on my day off. I remember God telling me to go back to school & I did.
I was a remarried wife, mother of 5, disabled, Master’s degree student but with determination and support I finished and started a small private practice & ministry after going through a long transition with myself.
Business was great it was founded with the focus of a great purpose, had a mission, a vision & values. I also finished the Doctorate program. Yeah, I did it, I was able to serve in a major way built on a Godly foundation for my business and was about to become a Ph.D. grad. It was also my 1st year of almost making it into the 7 figures club. The Ministry, Private Practice and small Private school this was the start of an empire.
This was a year where I added multiple streams of revenue, we also grew rapidly, and entered into the 7 figures club. I also ventured into product creation and started a Spa product & Hair extension line, in addition to the ministry, private practice, small private school but also started to lose sight of our foundational principles which was prayer & obedience.
Things still growing but never let your heart to serve, lead you into the ground (mentally, emotionally, physically & financially). It seemed like things were great, we hit another 7 figures that year. I started venturing into coaching, I actually hired a coach who advised me to make some changes in my business, that should have been in place from the beginning for business and personal protection.
Early that year we were already into 6 figures from the multiple streams of revenue. Just about to implement the final phase of protecting my business structure and revamping employee procedures **BOOM** an employee had committed fraud 2 years prior, which I made an agreement to close my private practice turn mental health community center. I was crushed, devastated, felt like a failure. Back to praying, discernment & obedience.
I felt sorry for myself, I felt like I lost everything, but I didn’t. I had to refocus on the positive things, get back to the Godly foundations for my coaching practice and other business ventures. I had to get clear and aligned in my businesses. I needed a Purpose, an Aim, a Map, to Profit and to Score= PAMPS.
Now I am focused, having fun teaching women entrepreneurs and coaches how to get clear, how to align and monetize the purposeful business. I also consult with Mental Health professional on credentialing, compliance & billing for starting and or maintaining a successful practice without negative impact. I also help churches, ministries, and non-profits expand into adding multiple streams of revenue. I now get to serve in a major way in many areas where I was blessed to have educational and or real life experience.
