Are you called to start a business springing from your gifts but could do with encouragement and solid steps on how to pace yourself well and keep the vision alive? Well, stick around to read or listen to 20 inspiring women + 3 true gentle-men from 7 destinations (so far): Barbados, The U.S, London, Trinidad & Tobago, Zimbabwe, St. Lucia and Canada.
What started as the ‘Celebrate A Sister‘ series is now more like a ‘let’s encourage one another‘ journey – that was a sweet surprise for me too. Feel free to scroll down for the guest list and click on the links that fit your most pressing questions in this season (might wanna get a notebook and pen one-time.)
It's a beautiful thing when sisters (of any colour or background) gather to encourage, share and celebrate annnd when men know they're welcome to share their insight, logic, challenges and tips too, without us feeling intimidated or annoyed.
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 all by grace.
I found out awhile ago, that intense shyness can sometimes be traced back to a sense of pride. While we’re not meant to be brawling, we’re not designed to be timid.
As uncomfortable as it was, I answered the calling, took the challenge and made one step after another. We can 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 (beyond our careers), navigating business becomes a lot less intimidating. It’s more of a service to others than a celebration of self.
This ‘Celebrate A Sister‘ series is meant to encourage other enterprising sisters to share – not hide their gifts, and introduce their services, products, communities and movements while offering encouragement with anyone reading a guest post or listening to an interview.
There’s something to be said about living purposefully yet quietly, and there’s also something special about connecting and encouraging other women on; joyfully celebrating as they shine through their gifting.
Joy within tings:
Encouragement over envy
Serenity over stress
Joy and not despair
Community over isolation
Wellness and Business
