I want to start of by apologizing for not posting last week. As I’ve written before, sometimes life gets in the way. I just want to share with you why I missed my posts. Being an entrepreneur can be challenging at times. So many people think because I’m home, I do nothing all day. There is nothing further from the truth.
Corporate America was so stressful, but you go with the flow. We all need to have a job and most of us don’t like our jobs. I was no different. The environment I was in was extremely toxic. People were nasty, backstabbing and condescending. The last 3 years were the worst; causing several health issues. When I lost my job in February, I was devastated and I was not sure what I was going to do. After having my pity party, I put my big girl pants on and figured out what I was going to do with my life. I decided it was time to change my career. I’ve done it so many times in my life; it’s nothing new to me. Since I was already helping people with their health and fitness being a Beachbody coach, I thought why not increase my knowledge. That’s when I signed up at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to become a Certified Health Coach.
In addition to my IIN classes, I have been taking 4 other classes pertaining to running my own business. I have totally spread myself too thin. I finally put one class on hold. Besides all of my studies, I am a giving my heart and soul to growing my Beachbody Coaching Team. I’m finding out there’s a lot more to do than just keeping up with social media, writing my blog posts and maintaining my website. The list is actually pretty long and I don’t want to bore you with it. The past month has been very stressful for me. My Twitter account got hacked into 3 days in a row. Then, my Hootsuite account got hacked. I am having plugin issues on my blog that is preventing me from submitting my articles to Ezine articles. I’ve got some parameter issue on Facebook that is preventing me from advertising. Someone on Facebook is using my Born2BeFit name on their page, so it’s preventing me from sharing my page link. These are just a few things. Every day it’s been one thing after another. And each issue is taking not hours, but days to fix. There are a few that I’m still dealing with. I have really been struggling. I’m exhausted and emotionally drained. I’ve fallen off track, off focus and my time management has gone out the window. I’ve really wanted to just give up and just throw this all away and just go back to working IT in Corporate America again.
But then I think of the reason I’m doing all of this. I love helping people succeed in health, fitness and in life. You’re the reason I’m here. I have been getting to know so many of you through social media. When people say things like “Thank you for all your help and time, you are wonderful” it truly makes my day. Everything I’m doing helps people see where they have to work and with the small tips I share, each day they improve. With a little support and some lifestyle adjustments, Lenni lost 10 pounds in my August support group. Now I can’t make anyone lose weight, but I can guide you and if you listen, you will get results. How can I give that up? This is what I truly love and I’m going to keep pushing through my struggles so I can stay here and help you push through yours.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and helping me define myself. I learn from each one of you. You inspire me to keep helping others. Thank you and God bless. Sending you giant hugs. I love you guys.
