WTH Do You Do When You’ve Built A Successful Business That You Hate?
I don’t care what anyone says circa 2000 to 2010 was the best decade EVER!
Period – Full Stop – Don’t DM me.
Isn’t it funny how we all believe that the decade of our youth was the hottest? That’s because, as humans, we have a habit of romanticizing —our past, future, and the things that we don’t have.
Before I became an entrepreneur full-time, I would sit at my desk and imagine the time freedom I would have once I became a full-time entrepreneur. I could practically feel the sun on my face as I imagined vacationing with my homegirls.
Fast forward to a year later, and I have made over $500,000 in my business. The bag was secured – but honestly, I hated it. I was overworked and unfulfilled.
As entrepreneurs and especially black women, The mere fact that we are successful in business is an anomaly. Admitting that financial success isn’t enough is taboo in our community. We’ve been conditioned to believe that money is the answer to fulfillment, which it isn’t.
I created The Empowered Coach Podcast so spiritually conscious coaches and healers had a safe space. We discuss mindset, empowerment, and the entrepreneurial journey through a culturally relevant lens.
In the first episode of The Empowered Coach Podcast, I share why I walked away from a half-million-dollar a year business. This episode is for you if you’re stuck somewhere between scaling in your business or throwing in the towel.
In this blog post, I will be answering the top 3 questions I get about closing my business at the height of my success.
Did You Really Make A Half-Million Dollars?
What Happened That Made You Walk Away?
Simply put, I wasn’t energetically aligned to my business model. When I chose to live according to my human design, I released the limited belief that I had to keep doing things that no longer served me. Culturally we believe that making money solves our problems – it doesn’t, and neither does being broke. Being in alignment and helping others is where you find happiness and freedom on ALL levels.
