Starting a Business; Can anyone do it? How can Gratitude help?

When I was 21 years old, I decided it was time for me to get into a business. I went to one of those home parties and ended up as a PartyLite consultant. I loved it and didn’t love it. MLM companies are really great to work for. They teach you high level manifesting. It was the very first time that I heard about The Law of Attraction. It gave me an understanding of running my own business and a confidence level of being able to get to the top, like so many before me.

Later that year, an opportunity fell into my lap because of a candle display that I had out at the gym I was working in part time. I ended up opening my first brick and mortar called The Occasional Favor, where I sold invitations, favors, and bridal accessories. I loved owning my own business, but it wasn’t easy. When you have so much freedom in time, it’s hard to motivate.

I went on to own Extravagant Events, another MLM Tastefully Simple, Balanced Soul Bodyworkers, Peace Love Produce and Grateful Guidance. Opening a business is way easier than you think. Being successful is a whole other story.

Honing in on the practice of Gratitude can help you to achieve anything you want! Whether it is motivation, ideas, new customers, products etc… Having a gratitude practice can help you get there!

A few weeks ago, I went to an event called Mega Success, and got to hear some of the best A-list celebrities and multi-millionaires speak. It was incredible listening to everyone’s individual stories, and how they became successful.
