A mentor once suggested that I journal what an ideal day would look like for me. It was an interesting and revealing experience – thinking about the day in terms of both my personal and professional life.
The easy one was my personal life. I would want to enjoy a cup of tea on a dock as the sun rose. I would fill my day with quality time with my husband and kids. I would go for a walk in the woods, enjoy good food, laugh, swim in a quiet lake, read and finally share a glass of wine with my husband as the sun set.
The more challenging and revealing one was the business life. I imagined that in terms of a year, rather than a single day. Presently, my chiropractic career does allow me to work in an office with wonderful patients helping them to live a life of wellness. However, the conclusion I came to about my current life was that it wasn’t fully congruent with what I felt would be my ideal work life.
What I really wanted to do was also share my passion for wellness and empowering people to live healthier lives on an even larger and even more meaningful scale than what I could do in just my office. That would be a wonderful step and an exciting challenge to enrich my life as well as the life of the people I would meet on this expanded journey.
Thankfully, I was introduced to a business model that allowed me to still be a healer and educator but not be tied to a physical location. I now get to also teach people about the power of plant-based natural health solutions to support their family’s health and well being. I have built and continue to build a team of women who have similar dreams of needing something more – a flexible work environment, an informed commitment to wellness and an aim to balance their family and work lives as they choose.
Do you thing there is more opportunity for you other than your present life choices or experiences? Do you sense that a life built around a commitment to healthy living choices makes sense for you and those in your life? Do you want to know more about how you can do that?
If so, I would like to talk to you. I want women to join my team, thrive in business, help others and have fun working with a supportive, meaningful and exciting team of like-minded people.
