✨ Thankful | Grateful | Humbled ✨
Today YogiNest celebrates 5 years and I woke up flooded with emotion.
I remember the journey that brought me here like it was yesterday, I mean how could I forget. I remember doctors telling me it was time to put me on permanent disability. Lupus was completely ravaging my body and all of my dreams. I had to drop out of college and I lost my job. I lived in hospitals and was drowning in medical debt. Little did I know that my rock bottom would also be my greatest blessing 🙌🏽
After years of hard work I put myself in remission and decided to start my own business. I felt an urgent need to share what I learned about meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and how it played a major role in my healing journey. Maybe this complementary, integrative, alternative, and holistic practice could help others the way it helped me.
I dove headfirst, taught myself everything I needed to know about starting and owning a business, marketing, advertising, taxes, bookkeeping, finances, graphic design, editing, recording, you name it 😂 I went door to door and built relationships in my community and one day I booked my first client 😭
Owning a business is no walk in the park. I’ve shed a lot of tears over the years, but I’ve grown immensely as a person. I’ve gained priceless knowledge about business, people, success, loss, life, risk, perseverance, community, wellness, the list is endless. I’ve met incredible people, business owners, and clients who have become like family.
No matter what happens for us in the future I know this for sure, I will never regret starting this journey! I will never forget the people I’ve met along the way and all the valuable lessons I’ve learned.
I want to thank all of my clients over the last 5 years, I am forever grateful. I want to thank everyone in my life who believed in me and pushed me to not only get started but to keep going when I’ve wanted to give up. I want to give a special thank you to @npalrecha ❤️ Where do I even start! I could not have done this without you. Thank you for believing in me ALWAYS & NO MATTER WHAT! Thank you for never letting me give up on myself.
My heart is full ❤️ Thank you!
