Dream Building

I have gone back and forth hundreds of times trying to decide whether to stay or go. For the past 6 months I have been working remotely on this exciting consulting project for two amazing women. After creating a self-sufficient non-profit organization supporting local weavers, the founder had a vision to integrate the social impact element of the business with the jewelry line.

I was excited at their passion and dived into helping to create the fashion business strategy and rebranding for the merger of the social and business elements to a social enterprise. We blasted ahead with an luxury photoshoot with a large elephant and bengal cat. But as time passed an unease took over and I couldn’t juggle effectively my own business and the work it took developing out innovative initiatives for the brand.

After taking time away during the holidays I sensed that it was time again to commit to my dream and make the tough choice to leave something I love. There is a saying ‘if you don’t build your dream someone will pay you to build theirs‘. Despite having a common vision I am but one person and I choose again to be faithful to this dream. We can only help others by helping ourselves first. I can’t wait to see the seeds we have planted blossom together into lovely fruitful trees. It is never the end only new beginnings.

Just found the venue for the book launch and charity event.
