ENTREPRENEURSHIP – NAME GAME

ENTREPRENEURSHIP – NAME GAME

Heyyyyy! It’s been a while, happy to connect with guys again! Hope you all have been well! 🙂

Things have been crazy! As I told you in a previous post (The Grass Isn’t Always Greener) I am preparing for the launch of my skincare company! Although I am beyond excited it’s been a little hectic. The rollercoaster of daily emotion of being an entrepreneur is something I couldn’t have even imagined. I am now at the last stretch and things are coming along so well. We’re only a few months away from launch. But to get to this point there has been A LOT of changes.

I have legally changed the name of my business 3 times. YES – 3 TIMES! After logo, packaging and artwork has been completed. With a name change dominos serval other updates – website domain, e-mail, packaging, logo, webpage text, branding and a bunch of other things! Now before you think I’m crazy – a Business Name is SO important. At the time (2 times prior), I did REALLY like the name. But then I would stare at it during final approval before printing and just not connect with it, to the point where I felt I needed to change it. I have to listen to my gut, it’s never wrong. Everything happens for a reason and I’m so glad that I ended up changing it because it wouldn’t have brought me here to a name that I am absolutely in love with. Besides – third times the charm, right?

It now has so much meaning to me and I’m so happy I can connect so much more on a deeper level with the brand I’ve worked so hard to create.

The number 8 has always had some significance in my life Whether it’s positive or negative. It always pops up (To start my life off, I was born in August – 8th month of the year). And without even knowing, when I had originally registered my business for the first time I did it on August 8th 2018 (08/08/2018) – how crazy? When I realized that, I just knew it was meant to be that I include the number 8. And now within the essence of the brand the number 8 has a lot of relevance.

And as you all know, I started this blog to help influence a more thoughtful and conscious way of living through my posts and connecting with people. Only doing things that truly bring you happiness (like how your aura shows true self – Check out my post on Energy).

I’m happy to be able to incorporate my values into this brand, and now be able to connect this blog as well! So in the future you will be seeing much more from me!

Eighth Aura will be launching soon! Stay tuned!

Entrepreneurship is all about the learning experience and part of the journey. I’m grateful for the lessons. And happy to share my learnings!

Sending love, life and wellness xo

THE GRASS ISN’T ALWAYS GREENER..

THE GRASS ISN’T ALWAYS GREENER..

So, you’re either back again or new, either way – AWESOME and WELCOME! 

Social Media has a great way of masking reality. Only showing the highlights of life, and leaving those (like myself) to figure out where we belong if we don’t have the same highlight reel. I’m not envious of the posts with people getting engaged and having babies, all that good stuff. At this point in time, that’s not for me. I’m very career and “do what you love” driven so I’m envious of the people who I see traveling the world, people who own their own business’s, make their own schedules, fighting for what they believe in, changing the world and making it a better place. And those who seem to be able to wake up at 11am everyday! umm, #GOALS

I’ve been home for 2 days since just being discharged from a 7 day hospital stay. 2019 did not start out how I wanted (I’m okay and starting to feel better). But, being in the hospital made me have such an epiphany about life. Without sounding dramatic, while I was there I really could only think that I haven’t done anything I’ve really wanted with my life. And I feel so silly saying that because on paper my life looks great, great job, great money, and amazing friends (trust me, it’s taken A LOT to get to this point) but for the most part the work I do isn’t fulfilling to me. Luckily I have great coworkers (people I now consider friends) who make the work day better to get through. But, I still often feel as though I go above and beyond for a company to make millions of dollars, off my work ethic, blood, sweat and tears where at the end of the day, they see me as easily replaceable. They would just move on, business as usual if needed.

” I want to wake up every morning feeling like the fire in my soul has been ignited. “

I want to wake up every morning feeling like the fire in my soul has been ignited. Like I am genuinely making a difference in people’s lives, the planet and doing it my own way. Breaking boundaries and causing positive disruption going outside the box standards society sets.

That is why I am starting my first entrepreneurial venture. My passion is skin care, so I’m excited in a couple of months I will be launching my own Skincare Company. (I’ll def write a post all about it, and keep you updated on progress) My only regret is that I did not document the full journey from the beginning years ago. But I’m doing it now – HELLO BLOG!

I promise this year I will stop putting things off until “tomorrow”. TOMORROW IS FINALLY HERE! You never know who is wishing for your struggle. The grass (being an analogy for life) isn’t always greener. But, I  realize my grass is green and more importantly – it’s mine. I’m more than happy to spend the time nurturing it, for it to continue to grow. Hoping you all do the same!
