Happy March and welcome to Women's History Month.
Looking back through women's history, so many women have fought for the rights of women today in the USA.
There is quite a long history of women not allowed to own property, work outside the home, advance in their career, or even have a bank account or credit card.
In my own life, I've been able to do it all; however, there were bumps in the road along the way.
For example, although I worked, had a good career, had bank accounts, and a credit card, when I got divorced, I found out the credit card we used as a couple was in my ex-husband’s name. According to the bank, I was only allowed to use it. After over 12 years, none of the credit history we developed together was under my name! I was furious!!
As a single mom, I was starting over in ways I didn't even know or understand at the time. I was thankfully able to buy a house on my own with my new job and new salary. Navigating the sale is another story, for another time.
Did I Break Facebook?
What Happens When Facebook is Down?
Yesterday I decided to jump into Facebook. You see, that sounds like an innocent activity, one that millions of people do everyday. What’s odd is that I actually scheduled the time and intended to spend some time there. I recently hired a new coach and am participating in her nine month program. I intentionally decided it’s time to engage with the group and ask a question.
What’s true for me is, I have a love/dislike relationship with Facebook. I do jump in every once in a while and I sometimes post. It’s just not my favorite place to be and I find it overwhelming and difficult to navigate (intentional to some degree by the creators, I think).
Yesterday, I decided to create the time and place to go into the newly formed group, introduce myself, and engage with my new “friends.” It really is a wonderful group of people all looking to learn and grow in their online business. What...
When I want to achieve anything, I go fully into it. There is no doubt or question, it's a decision, action, and achievement (or failure). However, when I think I want something... am not sure... "try" it... do it a little... guess what happens... maybe a little success and usually a lot of headache, heartache, and mediocrity. NOT SUCCESS!
So, when I found out I was $30,000 in debt, there was no wishy washy behavior. It was full-on determination to change the situation and create a financial foundation for me and my family. I set out on the journey to live a different life and there was no looking back.
This is the difference that full immersion created for me. I'm all in!
