Hello everyone, so I know it's been awhile since I blogged. If you all have been following me you know I've recently just launched my dance company in June. Also just last Thursday I "unofficially" launched my podcast WomenTransformed which has been a blessing in itself. But I just wanted to type something up real quick about purpose because if I can be honest after launching a second business in the middle of a pandemic I've learned the true definition of walking in purpose. So, let's start with the practical definition from our good friend google.
Purpose: "the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists."
So I will tell you all like I tell my clients during the Mindset stage in my coaching program WHY ARE YOU STARTING THIS BUSINESS OR NON PROFIT? You have to know the WHY before walking in your purpose because if you do not know the why there is no purpose behind it. What are you really doing this for? You have to also remember your purpose is a solution for someone else, what do you have that can solve their problem? Do you really have the answer and do you have joy when providing the solution aka walking in your purpose? Your purpose will always be greater than you, it is for the betterment of others such as your target audience. I'll talk about me for a second I have three different things going on in my life right now in which I can genuinely say I really feel like I've finally started walking in my purpose. Why do I say that? I say that because there is this peace and sense of joy that is hovering over me every day now, I go to places where I use to complain but now there is peace and I am operating in my joy rather than murmuring and complaining all day like I use too. Keep in mind these are visions that God has given from way back in college around 2013-2015 well at least that's where it all started. After life experiences and single motherhood I've learned so much about perseverance, resilience, strength and how to truly depend on God that everything that He's ever placed in my heart is coming to pass.
Each of my businesses were created to help someone other than myself, they were created to provide opportunities, strategies, and accountability that I did not have growing up as a little girl, as a single mother, and as a woman that is still becoming. My consulting business was created to help mother's and other women entrepreneurs who find themselves unsuccessful in starting their businesses due to lack of support, balance, and resources. My why is because I've been there and I know the struggle of inconsistency, not having the resources, wasting money with all of these different coaching programs, and making one mistake after another.
Monet Dance Company was created because as a little brown girl I never had the opportunity to take dance classes in my hometown because their were no opportunities for me so I was self taught. With that I created a safe space for brown girls to dance and be their authentic selves while doing so in an environment where other dancers look like them. The overall purpose is to allow my students to express themselves through their gift of dance while understanding how to be successful in their education. They use their gifts to inspire, create, get inspired, and give back.
Last but not least WomenTransformed is to help women all over rather they are single mothers, married, entrepreneurs, working a 9-5, in college or wherever to allow God to use them at their fullest capacity! Everyday is a process in becoming transformed and I want to build a community where women can hold each other accountable to do so. Sometimes as women we feel alone and misunderstood so we give up on dreams and goals we once had because we are so busy pouring into other people or simply just doing what we HAVE to do and never make time for OUR OWN transformation. Again I've been there and that is my why and my goal is to ensure I build a safe community for women to grow, transform, and be free. I have ONE purpose which is to help women transform their lives while using God as their source but I am using it in different ways starting with young girls to adult women. There is more than one way to use your purpose you just need to spend that time with God to hear from Him what you should be doing in the current season you are in.
So as you can see I have multiple things going on but because God has given me the vision for my purpose He has also graced me to execute it. You to can walk in your purpose and I promise you the moment you realize that you are truly walking in it freedom takes over and you will find joy in serving others. But remember sometimes you have to do just that WALK there is no race this is a journey and a process you must grow through.
So as always Keep Pushing!
