My Founder's Journey: How Putting My Head Down for 6 Months Erased $21k Debt EP272: My Founder's Journey: How Putting My Head Down for 6 Months Erased $21k Debt

Allow me to share with you my personal journey of transformation and self-discovery over the past six months because it has been nothing short of a roller coaster experience.

This episode is going to reveal another level of vulnerability from me, because despite surpassing my business goals and achieving financial success, I found myself feeling burnt out and lacking clarity on my next steps. So I made a bold decision to take a step back from my business and move in with my best friend and her husband for six months. This period of rest and reflection allowed me to pay off debt, save for a home, and make significant changes in my business, including hiring key team members and securing major contracts.

Sometimes, the path forward may not be clear, but having faith in the journey can lead to unexpected blessings and growth. So if you’re currently struggling with life, keep going and I hope this episode will give you the guidance to receive the clarity and peace you truly need.


  • The importance of redefining success and wealth on a personal level
  • The transformative power of rest and creating space for reflection
  • The impact of community, support, and connection on overall well-being
  • Setting boundaries and learning to say no for self-care and growth
  • The correlation between mental clarity, organization, and financial success
  • Embracing change and being open to unexpected opportunities
  • The significance of faith, trust, and patience in navigating life's uncertainties

I loved this last episode!! I’m sure there are many people listening who struggled with having a relationship with God, or don’t know where to start or think they have to be perfect to come to him.. but really God wants us in all our mess! Trust! I’ve been there growing up in church it’s a struggle! but having God in my life is better then going without him I’ve tried it my way and it never works! God always give us what we want so we can truly see it wasn’t what we REALLY wanted! As I’m listening I’m like where is my Hillary! Or am I her? Lol Having a sister in Christ to go to things with or discuss is probably the most encouraging thing to have! But at times God will have us in seasons as he did David in the Bible where he encouraged himself to get through! Keep going up J! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾
