Hi friends! It’s been a few days and I haven’t been posting as often for a couple of reasons. One, my husband has been home on paternity leave for 6 weeks! It has been amazing so far! The second reason is because I have been speaking with a business mentor.
If you read my blog post on February 28th, 2021, I talked about how I took the steps to make Heartening Forward a business. I had no idea how I would do any of this with very limited resources, but I trusted that God would provide, and He did.
My mentor volunteers her time to mentor business owners. What I thought was really awesome is that my mentor specializes in helping people startup businesses and guides them through the process. It was exactly what I needed at the right time.
I know that there is someone out there who may read this and be where I was a year ago; unsure if you should start your business or take that step of faith. But I’m here to tell you, keep praying. Keep asking God to show you what He has for you in your life. He will show you.
Have your friends pray for you too. I admit that this whole process has been scary and I have procrastinated in some areas, but praying and having friends pray for me too has been helpful. One of my best friends and I ask each other “What are you avoiding today?” This helps us hold each other accountable and is something that has encouraged me to start my business.
Maybe you are the friend/family member who sees this in someone in your life. If this is you, encourage them today. Let’s lift one another up together. Let’s help one another see what God has for each of our lives. Let’s build up and experience the awesome things that people around us are doing. That’s what I’m excited to do through Heartening Forward. I’m going to encourage as I create.
