Many of us reach crossroads in our lives and we don’t even know it. At these times we just have to take a leap of FAITH and follow the path that opens before us.
This past Friday and Saturday I took such a leap of FAITH. I was at a crossroads. I was at the point where I needed to take the steps to make money with my blog or relegate it to a hobby. If you don’t already know this blogs and hobbies don’t make you money, businesses do. Blogs and hobbies can turn into a business but they don’t always. It takes intention.
That was my purpose this weekend to learn how to turn my blog into a business. Along with 1600 awesome women I attended Christy Wright’s Business Boutique in Ft. Worth Texas. It was wonderful. One of the best events I have ever attended. There was inspiring speaker after inspiring speaker. There were great break out sessions and motivating stories. But most of all there were women from all ages and walks of life at different crossroads. Women with amazing stories and big dreams. Women like me and you. Women who made me say, “If they can do it so can I.” And that was the purpose of the event you see. To realize that yes you can live the life of your dreams. To see the shining examples before you and know that you can do it too. That you can say ME TOO.
Per Christy’s classifications I am a DREAMER. One who has lots of ideas. One who wants to start a business but doesn’t yet have a plan. And I will tell you at this special event the kernels of a plan started to appear. All of the mismatched ideas in my head began to form into a cohesive whole. I found my JOY. I found my PASSION. I am EMPOWERED to change my life.
I know what you are thinking. It was just a business conference. How can it do all of that? But you see this is a very special business conference. A place where women are being helped by other women who understand their situations. A place where GOD was present and at work in women’s lives. A place where you can find other women just like you trying to BUILD the life of their DREAMS. So if you can’t guess I highly recommend attending Christy Wright’s Business Boutique. The life that is changed may be your own.
