If you could give your past self some advice, what would you tell yourself?
To keep envisioning your dreams and take selfcare moments to honour yourself as everything is going to work out just wonderfully.
In the months leading up to officially launching my company about 7 years ago, my husband at the time told me he was putting our house up for sale and walked out of our lives. It was a very stressful time. I was consumed by fear and anxiety every minute of the day and would have panic attacks where my heart would beat out of control. Although I could put on a happy face for my children and others, feeling positive was another story. I was worried about the future, finances, how my kids were feeling, where we would live after the house sold, and where I would move my business and farm. Fast forward a few years ahead, I was able to emerge from the deepest depths of despair and regain my sense of confidence, happiness, health and let love flow back into my life.
What or who has been your greatest influence in business?
The people, mainly women, who have shared their personal stories with me about how that small step that they took of setting their intentions or saying affirmations as they were using my products helped them manifest better things in their lives. It inspires me to create more selfcare tools and programs to help even more people.
What is your number one business goal to accomplish this year?
I am currently working on mini courses to help people with their manifesting journey so definitely to finish and launch one program.
What do you have going on that you’d like to share?
Crystal Hills has once again been invited to participate in various celebrity events and upcoming awards shows so stay tuned to see which one we are going to be involved with.
How do you envision your future?
I envision myself smiling and enjoying time with my family and friends. Having a successful company that I am passionate about.
What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
My favorite part of running Crystal Hills Organics is the variety of jobs I get to do. Some days I can sit and write about an ingredient or blog topic whereas other days I focus on marketing, work in the lab or tend to the farm. I love the diversity.
Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
I don’t really have a set mantra that I live by, but I do believe that we have the power to create our reality. Here is a quote that sums it up for me. “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” by George Bernard Shaw.
What is your number one priority when it comes to your career and daily work?
My number one priority is to enjoy what I do, and I accomplish this by helping other people feel successful and empowered in their lives.
What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
Knowing that I have been able to help others by giving them the tools to succeed, whether it was through my selfcare products, manifesting kits, or the online books that I offer. The messages that I have received from other people who tell me their stories about how they were feeling overwhelmed or just didn’t know how to create a better tomorrow, then came across my products and began to see positive changes in their lives keeps me motivated. I am honored to be a part of their journey.
