St. Louis, MO
They belong to…
I am a 33 year old married female with no children. I have been in business for 12 years in many different industries and have decided within the last year to start a nutrition and consulting business. I have since partnered with a Chiropractor to not only build his practice but also grow my nutrition business as well.
What it’s like to walk in her shoes for a day…
4:30am wake up time, put meals together for my husband and I, “Me time” for an hour, workout, prep time, office all day, relax time, check emails and checkin on volunteer roles at the end of the day.
Growing up in her shoes she was…
I had a pretty easy childhood but since both parents worked I was required to babysit my younger sibling when I was of age. I also had certain expectations for behavior and schooling placed on me. This has led me to really fear failure and not wanting to disappoint.
Her biggest challenges day-to-day…
Self limiting beliefs and right now hormones.
What are the advantages of being a woman in the 21st Century?
You have unlimited possibilities!
Flashbulb memories (s) or what it’s really like to walk in her shoes…
My life is a constant work in progress towards my end goal of happiness. I am a strong willed woman who works to get what I want at life. This is a constant thing in process. Beyond working hard to build two businesses for my family I am also building a chiropractic business and volunteer as a director for a sorority. I have a strong work/play balance and when warm out get away as many weekends as possible.
Things you should know if you’re going to walk in her shoes…
It’s not hard and people need to stop yelling about injustices and actually do something about it. Stop marching and yelling that we need equal pay and go in to your boss and demand it.
Anything else we should know?
Life is what you make it, it truly is. You get one body, one mind and one shot at this. Make it the best!
