These pics were taken August 2014 when I just moved out (through choice!) of my brand new spacious 3 bedroom townhouse which I lived in until I was 29.
Anyway, back then I worked in corporate as primary therapist & physiologist and made enough to afford the nice new house. So why did I NOT WANT it?
Why was I willing to “sacrifice” my space and downsize so massively?🤔
You'd think someone entering their 30's would be wanting to upgrade to a bigger & better house🏡, not downsizing to live in a 390 square foot rental from the 1940’s!😵
Well, I had a deep desire to re-sculpt my life in such a powerful way. I wanted to not only be a financially prosperous woman, but also to become an entrepreneur. I desired FREEDOM to work for myself. I also decided I was going to become a millionaire..… so how was I going to get there?
My vision for life was not about looking for a short-term quick fix to feel better (example: upgrade vehicles or house or buy new clothes).
My vision was all about the LONG-TERM and asking myself "what am I willing to do to achieve ALL OF MY DESIRES & have zero regrets?"
For me, I listed to my inner guidance that said step 1 is to become a landlord and rent out your townhouse to start growing your net worth. My inner guidance told me "find the cheapest rental & start making $ on the property you own" so I did.
So when I sold all my things (because my new rental studio only had space for a kitchen table & bed!!) most of the world thought I was nuts🤪. I had people message me asking me "are you okay, what is happening to you?”
It doesn’t help I sustained a traumatic brain injury in 2013 that led some to suspect I really had a problem with decision making.
Most people (not all) could not imagine taking such a sacrifice and living with so little - but for me, I could not imagine living the rest of my life to a lesser degree than I knew was possible for me.
So I lived there, in that TINY shoebox apartment for 2 years.
In that time, despite lack of space, I felt more spacious, inspired and AWAKE than ever before!
During that time, I built and launched my Bodycherish High Vibration Skincare🌿🌸by November 2015. Yes, the company started in that space!!!
During that time, I bought a 2nd property... a luxury high-end condo… and then a 3rd property (one I eventually moved into).
During that time, I also got the inspired idea to become an online mentor & program/course creator.. which lead me to quit my corporate career & launch my new business by March 2017!💗🙌🏻
You see, I grew up EXTREMELY POOR & could have easily been another statistic - but I made a decision to write myself a new story, throw a plot twist and become anything I decided to be💃🏻👊🏻
Flash forward to today, I have 3 rental properties, 3 sets of tenants, 2 separate businesses earning multiple 6 figures and most importantly, the FREEDOM I knew I had to have when I made one of the best decisions of my life (deciding to move into that tiny 390 square foot apartment).
Oh yes, people thought I was crazy for sure!
To me, what would be crazy is STILL slaving away at a job I did not love, that was not my higher calling in life.
To me, what would be crazy is NOT choosing to become prosperous & struggling to make ends meet each month.
To me, what would be crazy is spending all my money for SHORT-TERM rewards versus keeping my eyes on the prize for where I am destined to go in life.
Successful entrepreneurs have 1 think in common. They take BOLD AF action that many are not comfortable taking.
Entrepreneurs often go into debt to build their empires (or live very humbly) in the beginning because they 🔥believe in their dream and the long term vision that lies ahead🔥
