The drive: What challenges have you overcome?
100% the majority of my challenges are seated in my self limiting-belief. I work on this personally with positive self-talk and expression. I consciously encourage myself to step out of my comfort zone with this venture and always find growth. Social media is something I find challenging at times, especially making videoes. I have recently shared more, and it seems to get a little bit easier each time. When I reflect on some of these barriers, it feels so close to my heart; it leaves me feeling exposed and vulnerable. The thought of it failing or not meeting my expectations or even ridiculed is scary. I have found that through leaning into my vulnerability that I, especially in my role as a Mother, can connect better with other Mothers and other businesses too.
For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
Pros of running a business are the creative side, and it feels incredible to share something that I have curated and watch it grow. I love witnessing and experiencing my inspirations unfold, and it feels so exciting to work towards a personal goal. Cons is the uncertainty in it all; the risk factor when it comes to the investment of money and time.
Hopes and dreams: What next?
Well, the website is launched. My dreams for this is to see it grow into a platform where you can find Nature-Based Play, learning and lifestyle connections all in one place. I want the community to grow as we share stories on the blog as well as products and services in the collection. I am a dreamer through. So, there are some pretty wild hopes floating around. By Spring, I will be offering a product I have wanted to get going all year that satisfies my more creative side. You’ll love it.
