2nd Anniversary - YAY!!
Celebrating a successful year in business :-)
This month marks two (2) year since I began my coaching and HR consulting business …right at the beginning of the pandemic that has resulted in many restrictions on businesses. I am very proud to have survived this roller coaster ride the last couple of years. I’ll be honest, I really struggled using the word “proud” and I couldn’t figure out why. After some soul searching and couple of nights tossing and turning, I decided to look up the definition of the word in the Oxford dictionary defines it as “feeling deep pleasure or satisfaction as a result of one’s own achievement, qualities, or possessions.” So why did I feel a little guilt about being proud of my accomplishments? Could it be because as a woman, a black woman this is something I have struggled with all my life? I feel like women are often not given opportunities to be proud, whether black or white, I mean we work hard, in many cases harder than our male colleagues, so why not?
After tossing this around for a few days, I let it go. I am proud! Especially in this climate to have overcome the obstacles we all faced the last two years. Despite being in lockdown, not being able to coach my clients in person, shitty internet, (and I mean shitty… the joys of living rural 😊), I made it! I’m still standing! My business survived two crazy years, I have some amazing clients, some I have not even met in person yet, but we are building great relationships, something else I have always done well and also very proud of. Oh yeah, I am also proud to be a Black woman owned business. This is especially more meaningful since this is Black History Month, the time to celebrate
