What a beautiful thing when women gather to encourage and celebrate.

If you’re anything like me, sometimes it’s hard to really put yourself out there in general and as an entrepreneur. But we’re not to dim or hide the light within; we’re designed to shine.

I found out awhile ago, that intense shyness can sometimes be traced back to a sense of pride.

As uncomfortable as it was, I took the challenge and started to get brave in business. Oh, lemme add here that we can do grow our business without comprising our essence.

It’s a learning curve that I’m still ‘surfing’ on but when we remember that our gifts and time matter and we have a purpose and something to offer, navigating business becomes less intimidating. It’s more of a service to others than a celebration of self.

This whole ‘Celebrate A Sister‘ series is meant to encourage other creative career sisters to share, not hide their gifts and introduce their business while sharing encouragement with anyone reading a guest post or listening to a podcast episode.

There’s something to be said about living purposefully yet quietly, and there’s also something so special about connecting and encouraging other women on; joyfully celebrating as they shine through their gifting.

Our approach at Joy within:

  • Encouragement over envy
  • Serenity over stress
  • Joy and not despair
  • Community over isolation
  • Wellness in Business
