Once a month I attend The Queens Of Finance meetup hosted by Laurie Goodman. We talk about money, creating wealth and starting and growing your own business. So our meeting was yesterday and I wanted to share a great story with you from one of the young ladies who is a member of the group. Her name is T. Harris. At our meeting last month she expressed an interest in quitting her job and starting a medical billing service. Another young lady in the group was thinking about going into the travel business because she too was quitting her job and needed to make some money. This young lady however had expressed an interest in another industry which she said was her true passion. So my advice to her was to not chase money, but follow her dream instead. I had been where she was, thinking that I could start another business to fund the business that I really wanted to do, not understanding that the work would be the same no matter what business I started. So instead of starting just any business for money, start the one that she really wanted to start. Do what she was truly passionate about, because that will be hard work to get going, so do it once where it really counts.
Last night towards the end our meeting T. Harris told us that she thought about what I had told the other young lady and had to do a discovery with herself and look at what she was really passionate about and discovered that it was not medical billing, but it was being a nurse. She said that she was once a CNA and that job was so fulfilling to her. She wanted to go further and become an RN, but felt that she would not pass the exam. Because of her fear of failing the nursing exam she got degrees in other areas and not the one that she truly loved. Well after her self discovery session with herself she decided that it was time to kick fear in the face and go for her dream. She enrolled back in school as a nursing major and will start classes this Fall. Man I felt so good to know that what I shared was able to help her get past her fear and move towards her purpose and her true destiny.
Now my question to you is are you following your dream or are you chasing that mighty dollar? I hope that you got something out of this story.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
