Attitude of Gratitude – Happy Veterans Day

I don’t like to think I can’t do something.

But I think most people know why I could never be a member of the military – for my safety and the safety of others, I think it’s painfully obvious that I couldn’t, with how poorly my ears function.

So as someone who has immense love and pride for her country and those who fight for it, I’m GRATEFUL to be able to show my love and support for the military on an every day basis, by showing up and bringing my absolute best efforts to my JOB!

Having been a Navy contractor in Newport for 11.5+ years now, I’ve worked with SO MANY amazing veterans and active duty military, and I consider it such an honor to put my pride and my talents to use for their use!

It’s all about perspective; maybe I can’t be in the military, but I can show my gratitude in other ways, so that’s what I do! 🇺🇸💕

Financial Freedom Friday – Can’t Be Laid Off

Having recently been laid off due to funding, (and then picked up by another company, gratefully!), I will say it’s still terrifying and stressful, but there is also a peace of mind that comes along with knowing I have been steadily building my Beachbody business towards profitable. It feels really good to have a backup plan; to know that in a sea of things I cannot control, that’s not one of them – I can’t be laid off from Beachbody! I’m the boss!

I mean, I was asked if I would go to coaching full time instead of looking to continue my industry work elsewhere, and while I would LOVE to, my financial situation isn’t there yet, and I would hate to go backwards – into MORE debt, instead of waiting until I am debt free and doing it the proper way.

So yes, it is a goal – to someday be the only boss I have, and not be at the mercy of funding, or contract disputes, or anything else. But not yet – for now, I am happily dual-hatted 🙂
