Once Upon A time
Established in 2004, I embarked on my journey as a bookkeeper, following all the necessary steps to start a successful business. However, like many of my clients, I quickly discovered that completing these tasks didn’t guarantee financial stability. I reluctantly accepted that I was merely running a side hustle, and in order to survive, I needed to seek alternative employment. While I kept my side hustle afloat by a thread, I joined the corporate world, where my skills propelled me up the ladder. Within three years, I found myself overseeing multiple locations, responsible for hiring and training new employees.
Then, in 2013, I faced a pivotal moment when I learned that my boss was selling the business. This prompted me to make a resolute decision – I refused to let my precious side hustle fail. I yearned to build something of my own, something I could be proud of, something that would provide for my family.
