Attention Entrepreneurs:
You’re not in this alone!

Today I’ve brought my brand new (been with us for several months) Director of Operations, Megan Hansell Henderson, on to discuss what it means to accept help in your journey.

Megan went from professional, to stay at home mom, to work at home mom because her fulfillment comes from more than traditional motherhood. FYI: there is nothing wrong with that. Despite the fact that her oldest needs an advanced level of care, she knew that she needed more to bring her a sense of fulfillment.

Fast-forward to the past year. While she has her MBA she decided that she wanted to learn more about the online space. She obtained a certification in online operations and began living her dream. Now she’s decided that dream is centered on supporting her family and the I Heart My Life Movement.

Here’s the thing, you don’t have to choose one over the other. Your success in business does not have to eclipse your success in family life. 

Listen in as Megan shares how she has found a balance between entrepreneurship and family and why this model works best for her.

Here’s the thing, we as human beings will find any excuse necessary to avoid the uncomfortable. One of the BIGGEST excuses is that we don’t have the time or resources to solidify our dreams. Megan puts all of those excuses to bed. Listen in to learn why.

If you can’t move beyond the excuse of time or resources… if your mindset refuses to shift… are you sure you’re ready for entrepreneurship? If you are, then this is the conversation you need to hear to move beyond those blocks!

“Are you actually playing small with yourself? … I love helping business owners see what they can’t because sometimes you’re too close to yourself that you need somebody else to just “tell” you what’s going on.” 

-Megan Hansell Henderson

“Are you actually playing small with yourself? … I love helping business owners see what they can’t because sometimes you’re too close to yourself that you need somebody else to just “tell” you what’s going on.”  – Megan Hansell Henderson

“Your network is your net worth…. It’s so true.” Megan Hansell Henderson

Advice for Coping with Unexpected Tragedy

We recently sat down with our lovely team member Evelyn for an extremely important conversation about grief; a topic that we don’t think people spend enough time talking about. In fact, we think many people choose not to talk about it out of fear, overwhelm, or simply because they don’t know what to say.
