Remember when I said I was done in the salon? Well… I lied a little bit.
The pandemic surged, senior year commenced, the kitchen pantry began to look scarce with everyone being home, and a slow start learning how to begin a blogging career had all been a factor in why I had to take a step back and make some faster contributions to the household.
I felt like it was a setback, but it was actually a set up to come back stronger and better.
There are so many things that took place while I was away, but I’m grateful that I have a trade I can pick up anytime I need to. There’s a blessing in having worked in a career field for 20+ years.
The experience and seniority speaks volumes when you need it most, and I’m so thankful for that.
The fact that I love meeting new people and serving others with my talents adds a cherry on top- that’s what’s in it for me.
I’ve worked hard, built a solid business and clientele, made lots of money, and then I was reminded of my first love and propelled into the Purpose for my life.
Encouraging and Uplifting others by sharing “The Good News,” was fulfilling a void in me.
After 20 years in my career field, a degree in business, advancing to Instructing cosmetology and teaching business etiquette, I was unfulfilled.
In 2017 I decided to close my location and In 2018 I finished my first book. 2019 yielded my first published work and RenaSpeaks! The pandemic began in 2020 and I was able to sustain with book sales, blogging and affiliate marketing for a while but just enough to stay afloat.
In 2021 I realized that there were some things I wanted to be able to do that would require a little more and so I was blessed to have something to rely on. The saying “never put all your eggs in one basket,” came into play!
The hard part was that I didn’t want to stop the momentum with the Blog.
*Sometimes we have to make tough decisions regarding what’s best for ourselves and our families, but I’ve learned that a few pit stops doesn’t have to change the overall direction of your journey.
At the appointed time I was able to make the transition into my NEXT.
Throughout this time I’ve been building and adding pieces to my puzzle without even realizing it, and now I see how it all fits together to create a well rounded business and blogging career.
