Worst piece of advice I was ever given:
YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
Listening to someone when they told me I couldn't do something. You're not ____ (smart, old, young, pretty, skinny, athletic, capable) enough. Fill in the blank - I am sure you have all heard this before. Even the constant conversations now of "when are you going back to a REAL job, a full time job, a 9-5 environment" Sorry Becky, I am NOT doing that. (if your name is becky I am sorry, just a fake person name I am using). I have built my business over the last two and half years and when I was laid off from Corporate America, I felt like a major weight was lifted off my shoulders. I have always felt like I was meant for more than a 9-5 desk job. The moment I was told I was no longer needed at Campbells, I was honestly so happy - scared but happy. Scared, because it was not the "norm" to be working my own business instead of building someone else's dream behind a desk. Scared because I was told my whole life "go to college, get a degree, get a great job, and climb the ladder". I am done listening to what I can't do. I know what I can do, and if its not your "norm" I am sorry. I am happy building my own life, my own dream, and my own business I never have to take a vacation from. I believe in combining work and passion and having a 7 day weekend, more than anything in the world. I CAN and I WILL ✨
