THE SPIRITU 4
HEAD, HEART, STOMACH, & FEET
How has motherhood shaped your path?
However, I think that if time hadn't become as valuable as it is now that Matteo is in my life, I would still be waiting on circumstances to change and be in places that I wasn’t happy in. He pushed me to make my own path and to let God take the wheel
Tell us more about that journey.
I left my news career, job security, health insurance, and paid vacations. It was the best decision of my life - for my son, my husband, and most importantly, for me. I put in my two weeks notice, I moved close to my parents, my husband secured a job with a promotion, I lost weight, I got to spend more time with my son, and I started my own business. I gave God my trust and he showed me his power.
What else pushed you to start your own business?
I always desired to be an entrepreneur and it was only a matter of time that I would follow my calling. I left news without a plan but trusting my heart and gut that everything would be alright. One day, I got an unexpected call from Kimberly Easton, the CEO of KEI Connects, a strategic communications firm and she told me, “God told me to call you.” She took me under her wing and motivated me to open up my own business.
I’m proud of the woman I’ve become. I started to speak up more and put myself and family first, and that has been life changing.
