My Journey To Starting A New Biz

There once was a time in my life when not being productive was the worst thing ever. I felt like I was just waiting for my life to start and wishing that I would “make it” in my career and life in general. As I got older though, I started to appreciate the nothingness in my life. Life has gotten hectic and caused me to be stressed and tired so spending my day reading e-magazines, eating salads, meditating, and organizing my walk-in China closet started to sound like ecstasy. So I forged into the semi-retired lifestyle, basically, I allowed myself to be bored. It was actually super fun. I lounged in my t-shirt and shorts the whole day, caught up on all the Netflix series that I missed over the years (Pretty Little Liars, The Good Wife, House—you get the picture), and I just delighted in the fact that I never had to take any anti-anxiety meds to chill. Life was good.

For someone who began working at an early age, shifting my focus to relaxation marked a welcomed change from my previously fast-paced lifestyle. In the process, I discovered how to center myself and found inner peace (#namaste). Literally, my life felt like a marshmallow—sweet and soft, haha! My body was relaxed and calm, my mind clear and focused, and I found myself listening to my intuition. After a three-year hiatus, I came to the realization that living the lady of leisure lifestyle was, well, overrated!!! LOL

Don’t get me wrong, indulging in moments of doing nothing can be blissful, but when it comes to leading a fulfilling life, I realized I needed to take risks. That meant returning to work, generating ideas, and turning them into reality—this time, with a deeper sense of purpose and a wealth of experience to boot. A quick background: I kickstarted my career in advertising, transitioned to sales and management, and later delved into fashion and styling. Creating concepts and promoting products felt innate to me, not just because I was “maboka” (chatty or possessing good oratorical skills), but because my passion has always revolved around sharing. When I believe in something, I am the first to champion it! I believe that my blog and social media accounts serve as a testament to my intention and passion to inspire and live the best life.

And now, here I am, passionately pursuing my entrepreneurial side, discovering products I believe in, and sharing them with all of you.
