Creating a life you love is not impossible. That is what we at I Heart My Life help women do all day every day. But it takes time, hard work, and support. Three of our amazing community members recently sat down with me to chat about how the community has changed their lives and businesses and knew that we had to share this with you.

LaDawn Townsend, Emily Summersett, and Charreah Jackson have all been in the I Heart My Life community for some time. Each of them had amazing things to say about our community in particular but really listen in to hear what they share about community in general. 

“Just take the leap. If you’re getting ready to or you’ve taken the leap and you’re scared, just keep going. Because I promise, there is a beautiful life just waiting for you.” -Emily Summersett

Listen as they each share more about their stories and why they started their businesses. For each of them, starting and growing a business was not only a dream but almost a matter of necessity. 

For LaDawn it came after an unexpected layoff. For Emily, she needed to find a new and better way to help her husband. For Charreah, she knew that after kicking cancer, she could no longer follow the whims and strictures of others.

But for them all, having the support and access to a community was imperative to their success and growth. 

We had an amazing conversation and LaDawn summed it all up in a very concise and perfect way. We are not born to conform. We are born to stand out, be on our own path, and live our best life. That all starts with having the support needed to forge our own path and then to keep going down it when things get tough!
