My 2018 JuJu - Do you believe in JuJu?

It’s that time of year when 2018 is nearly at the end and we can't help but looking back on our accomplishments and all the achievements we’ve made. 2018 was a whirlwind for me. In the best possible way! It’s been crazy and challenging but mostly AH-mazing! ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In June, I was told by a psychic that 2018 was going to be huge year of growth for me. She also told me that I was going to start my own business argh WHAT?? This lady is crazy I thought.....anyway the thought of having my own business wasn’t even a blimp on my radar! It was something I would love to do but didn't have the courage. I was too scared. I mean, I can run big old international businesses but to own one - WTF. All I knew in June, is that I soooo wanted to leave my job but I didn’t know what I would jump into next 🤷🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I took a position, to get me the eff out of what I was doing previously, I thought I’d be happy. Within a month at that job, I had an epiphany 💫Whilst sitting at my desk, feeling ripped off, bored, unfulfilled and undervalued, I text my husband and said “I can’t do this. I can’t work for someone else anymore. I am going to CREATE something that will make me happy”. In that moment, I wasn’t sure what it would be. He said to me "retire, the kids will love it". "Your happiness is all that matters". So I left, had a 3 month holiday and got bored. I then thought I KNOW... I started THIS business using my 20 years experience in business and within days it became my full time gig 😁⠀⠀Looks like the crazy lady was right 🥰⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am so thankful for each step that lead me here. For how crazy quickly my business has grown, enough for me to be 100% self employed and still work around kids. In hindsight, this business was a long time in the making. From all my years of business management, admin and growing my skills in social media. However, I didn’t realise it until this year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It took a job that made me miserable (plus some subtle prompts from the Husband and the good ole universe) for me to finally create the life I truly desired! It was terrifying and I wasn’t completely ready, but now I see how magically the universe has rewarded me for being brave✨🙌🏼I

Bring on 2019, cos it is only going to be bigger and better and I can't wait to see what the crazy lady has installed for me - which I am truly grateful 🙏✨
