When everyone else is 10 steps ahead…
There is no such thing as overnight success. Even when it seems like everyone else has exactly what you want.
My journey and where I am today has been a 10+ year progression of Entrepreneurship and over 15 years of personal and professional development. Therapy, healing, and plenty of Coaching.
I started my first company when I was 23. (Wow! What a lifetime ago! 🤣) Agapi events—an event planning company.
Years later, I launched my second passion: a Greek iced-tea beverage. This was a tremendous undertaking, ended in a partnership dispute and eventually closed the doors of my business. Using my grandmother’s recipe, I thought the tea company would be my family legacy. Emotionally attached is an understatement. My heart was broken. (Why you shouldn’t be so emotionally invested in your business.)
I can’t tell you how often I have had to pivot and re-invent myself.
Entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart. It takes so much grit and strength; it truly isn’t for everyone. I don’t wish to have it any other way, but I am thankful that my journey finally has stability and consistency. I can enjoy the fruits of my labor!
I’m ending a decade of the hustle and approaching things differently now. My focus on making money and survival lasted so long and really took a toll. But this next chapter is mission-based. It’s about uplifting humanity and leaving this world better than when I entered it—changing lives and leaving a true legacy behind.
Today I wanted to share these moments to remind you: you can’t compare your chapter to someone else’s chapter 10.
If your current venture isn’t working, pivot. Follow what flows easily, what feels good, and what is working. Ask your customers what they want. Don’t assume. Try not to stay emotionally attached to your brand or stuck to one way of doing things. When you have an open mind, you will see endless possibilities. If a door is trying to close on you, let it. The Universe is trying to direct you to something bigger, better, and more aligned with your soul’s purpose.
Celebrate the chapter you’re in!
