I've always believed the age-old saying that happiness breeds happiness.
My journey to freedom started when I launched my industry recognized PR agency while I was 8-months pregnant with my first son Max.
After he was born, I went back to work immediately. I had postpartum and my fiancé was in the midst of an acquisition. The workload, sleepless nights and hormonal changes in my body were taxing. The stress of parenting far outweighed the stress of work so "burning the midnight-oil" was a relief for me. What I failed to recognize was how stressed my body and spirit were.
Max wasn't 4-months old when we got the second biggest surprise ever. I was pregnant AGAIN!
All the while we were moving into a second home, and launching yet another business.
Two babies, two businesses, two moves all in two years. Yikes!
Happiness at this point, felt like finding the needle in the haystack. Impossible.
It took hitting rock bottom with my health, my sleep, my relationships and ultimately my happiness for me to turn things around. So my husband and I set out to create systems and procedures that have, over the course of that last six years become the Family Academy. Using those methods, I was able to bring my 7-figure agency to 50% profit margins and enroll clients from all over the world.
Knowing that my family was healthy and happy AND that I could work on my business when I wanted (most of the time), was the biggest relief.
