My business dream to make a difference

Hello everyone!!! I know it’s been a while since I have posted.  Since coming back from overseas I have been working out how I can best walk my talk and Live Authentically! So I have decided to bite the bullet and even though it’s scary I am going to start my own business and help others to also live authentically, whatever that means for them.

You see I have a BIG dream, a goal, a vision, to really make a difference in this world.  I want to create a world where people feel safe to be who they really are.  A world where people feel they can take the time to look inside themselves and get to know the person they are underneath all the layers.  A world where figuring out who you are and what’s most important to you isn’t a foreign concept.  A world where people feel more fulfilled and inspired to live the life they want for themselves. I want live in a world where people dream big, believe that anything is possible and are given the opportunity to do this every single day.

My goal is to start a business in which this world can be a reality for people.   I want to help people live with more passion and purpose then they’ve ever felt before.  In this world people are shown a different way of being and create new pathways for themselves.  My background is Youth Work, Kinesiology and Art Therapy.  With these skills I will provide a service that helps peolple identify and remove any stressors, barriers or blocks that get in the way of them achieving their goals and dreams.

My business will include one whole day a week where I will give back to the community.  I will provide my services, time and resources (for free) to those who need it the most and could not otherwise afford these services.

Throughout my time I have some seen some amazing examples of people making a difference when they have the opportunity to do so and the right supports in place. Please help me achieve my goal so that I can set up my business and be in position to fully give of myself to others.  Let us create a world together where anything is possible.

In the process I also aim to inspire and help others to do the same.  I want to create a community and culture around this philosophy of giving. One that values giving in service to others and contribution for the greater good above and beyond making money.

Please visit my Go Fund Me page https://www.gofundme.com/business-dream-to-make-difference and share as much as possible to anyone who may be interested in supporting this vision.

I will be using the donations from this campaign to acquire the business skills necessary for me to be able to launch my business, all set up costs, equipment and stationery needs etc.

I am already so grateful for having the opportunity to share this vision with you.

Thank-you,
LA

Love… The ultimate test!

If you’ve read my post “Breaking Free” you will know that I am going travelling soon and you’ll know what it’s taken for me to get this point.  I thought I’d faced all my challenges when I wrote that post but what was to happen next was not what I was expecting and it was one of the ultimate tests… Love!

What have I learnt… ?

  • Love is a very powerful force but most powerful when it is directed toward the self
  • Letting go is love and love is also letting go
  • Surrendering into the deep sea of the unknown no matter how scary it is a necessary and vital part of growing
  • The more you “feel the fear and do it anyway” the more you will feel it and do it anyway again next time
  • It doesn’t matter what it is, how long you’ve had it or how much you’ve wanted it… Like a child throwing a paper plane off the edge, you watch it fly, hope it lands safely and get ready to do it all over again
  • Loving yourself above and beyond all else, even when it’s hard, even when it’s scary and even when it means potentially hurting someone else… It is still one of greatest gifts you will ever give to yourself, and ultimately to the other person
