As parents we all have a mission: to ensure our children find happiness and passion in their lives. This happiness can come from a multitude of things, such as from God, from healthy relationships or by finding an outlet in which they can truly express themselves. Proverbs 22:6 reminds us to “train up a child in the way he should go: even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
The last few decades of my life have been wonderful, crazy, stressful, but most importantly I found my true passion! Everyone knows the common saying, “do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life,” which we all know is easier said than done. For example, for 23 years I was a chemist and although it had its perks it just wasn’t what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. This made me feel lost and worried. However, I did have one thing in my life I loved doing (other than being a mom); I loved yoga and felt called to help others feel great by getting them involved in the best form of exercise.
How was I going to start my own business considering I went to school for chemistry? This is how: with an entrepreneur spirit. Being an entrepreneur is the best attribute a person can have because when faced with problems he or she can find the solution. As a mom I have always taught my children to take on the challenges of the world and I am sure you do too. In this monthly column I am going to give you and your children the insights of entrepreneurship, teaching you and your children what I have learned by building my own business. Be on the lookout for this series in next month’s paper entitled Train Up!
