After years of serving as a professional in traditional settings, what I dreaded the most had become my reality. I was under-valued and expending way too much energy on projects which limited my passion and creativity. I found myself living for the weekends and dreading Mondays. I knew there had to be a better way. I desired the means to be a responsible contributor to society, an available mom, and a professional with the ability to earn an uncapped income. But, how? I did what was expected by completing my degree and working hard. Yet, I could not fathom remaining in the traditional work setting for decades to be classified as successful. I prayed daily for God's wisdom and clarity on how to move forward, and within time, my vision became clear.
After walking away from my most recent corporate position in 2014, I quickly realized why I was so dissatisfied with the traditional norm. I had traded my freedom and true worth for someone else’s dream. I was fulfilling another person’s calling and not my own. The office politics was real and I had become a slave to those who took credit for my work as I remained in bondage to the very thing I hated that stifled my gifts.
Due to my dissatisfaction with the lack of freedom associated with the corporate setting, I felt drained of my enthusiasm and creativity to thrive in my positions.
I realized that all along what I craved was:
· The freedom and creativity to work from anywhere I chose;
· The ability to connect with clients worldwide;
· The freedom to complete tasks without being micromanaged;
· And, the escape from the restraints of a time clock and hourly wage, not to mention the mandatory overtime associated with a salary.
I wanted my freedom back, and it was up to me to create the change I yearned for while earning a salary conducive to my true worth, rather than predetermined earnings based on the company’s bottom line.
Once I developed a mission and a plan, I found myself in a happier place – a place where I have the freedom and ability to offer my services on my schedule, on agreed upon terms, and at my true worth. I knew in my heart of hearts that I was not alone in this venture. As I connected with other professionals across the globe, I quickly learned that our goals were similar. After carefully partnering with like-minded entrepreneurs and professionals, my network provided me the connections and opportunities to grow my business.
During my journey, I have learned to never limit my abilities. Now, my mission and freedom are directly aligned, and I love it!
Aside from creating a thriving career as an entrepreneur, I am grateful for each experience, every victory and setback, and for those individuals who remained steadfast during my process.
As a single mom of two Millennials, my children have pushed me beyond my comfort zone, fostered my self-awareness, and taught me how to love beyond words; they are the best children I could ask for and I am proud to be called their Mom.
I am honored to have graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. My formal education, training, and professional exposure have afforded me to work with clients who have taught me the value of integrity, honesty, and transparency.
Born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and raised in New York, my Caribbean roots and northern tenacious attitude have driven me to overcome many obstacles and setbacks during my journey.
