As she describes below, Halley Gray was my client – until she became my strategist. I’ll let her tell ya about that transition, but man oh man, does what she say prove my point that there’s not always trumpets that come with your perfect dream career – but it’s so worth working on/waiting for.
I’ve wanted to run my own business for an eon before I even knew what I wanted to do. Corporate day job after corporate day job kept proving I’m definitely more a Captain Hook than a First mate Shmee. Mutiny was on the books.
Finally I got a break from whatever deity or energy source hangs out in the cosmos. I won a free session with Michelle.
Hook. Line. Sinker. Destiny knew my soft spot.
We spent a year together exploring my possibilities. Vintage Kimono Handbag Designer. Adventure Coach. Sassy Copywriter.
They all pinched and squeezed in the wrong places.
The day came when I put it all to one side. I didn’t know. I wouldn’t know. I lost hope.
I spent a weekend on a soft gray couch you could get shipwrecked in helping my friend with her business and as I came up with new ways to expand it: national to international, unknown online to known and which products to create – she enthusiastically yelled out, ‘You should do this for a LIVING!’
Till I realized my passion isn’t a career, it’s a mission: to help other people succeed.
My personal strength to get them there – marketing strategies (read: desirable business growing).
Michelle and I blasted thru the rest. She knew I’d get there and let me discover it for myself.
My life now? Hard, satisfying, challenging, fun, profitable. MINE. All mine.
It’s not easy but it’s totally worth it.
Halley tunneled her way out of her day job as an office coordinator to live on the outside as a Marketing Strategist. No way she’s going back, man, no way. Evolve helps businesses succeed online with many a naughty metaphor to make you snicker.Meaningful Mindsets
