Growing up I went though the typical phases of what I wanted to be when I was older. By the time I was 10 years old, I knew I wanted to be my own boss. Looking back I should have been more specific about what that meant. Like so many other children, I grew up, and joined the Restaurant Industry. What can I say? Cash is king.
After 22 years in the Industry, I decided that I would cut back my availability by 2021, to Monday through Friday only. I was already on a lucrative day schedule and it was working out great for my family. The idea was to start looking into my future career once my children graduated high school. I was focused on the idea of my children first, then myself.
This year I turned 40 on March 20th, by March 24th Hawaii entered the first state shutdown of 2020. Thanks to the global pandemic I was furloughed and eagerly awaiting my unemployment like so many others. Not much happened those first few weeks of quarantine. Then one sleepless night it occurred to me that I had been given an opportunity to start building the career I WANTED. It was time to commit to being my own boss, just as that little girl in Shawnee, Kansas realized all those years ago.
I will save the process I have been undergoing for future posts. This was meant to be an announcement post. I am announcing my career independence!
It has taken a village of amazing people to build the person I am today. I will be relying on that same village to guide and support me as I make this commitment and transition. It is time to start fulfilling my purpose.
I have updated my current websites and Facebook groups. I will be posting more blogs on Sandaled Shaman and Vocal. Look for live Facebook posts, starting next Saturday October 10th on the Edgar Cayce Oahu group page. There are a few more things in the works such as new programs, online services, and three certifications that I will be adding to my rebranded practice.
All of my social media links are below. I greatly appreciate the support of everyone who has contributed to this journey. Although 2020, has not been ideal, I am making the best of it and pursuing my personal calling to be of service to others.
