Episode 104: Entrepreneurship and Healing: Balancing Business Growth and Personal Loss

Jun 14, 2023


The anniversary of my mother's passing and the painful memory of my miscarriage always brings up a whirlwind of emotions for me, especially considering that these events occurred within the same month. Last year, I faced the devastating loss of two incredible women within just two weeks, leaving me grappling with grief while simultaneously building a business and caring for my family

In this heartfelt episode, I reflect on the importance of self-care and the value of a supportive network of friends, family and fellow entrepreneurs. 

Join me as I share my experiences, discuss setting achievable goals for my business, and incorporating daily nurturing practices to ensure my own well-being doesn't suffer. Even if it's just a few minutes a day, I encourage you to take time for yourself.

Listen to this episode to discover:

  • How hearing stories at my great-great-aunt's funeral contributed to my personal growth journey.
  • The significance of listening to my intuition and recognizing the signs from the universe, which prevented me from feeling stuck.
  • The importance of sharing my grieving journey, even when it feels uncomfortable, to help others.
  • Why this year feels like a time for celebration rather than mourning.

And so much more.
