Life has thrown a few curve balls at me in the last few years- breaking up of family, lockdowns due to the Rona, losing 75% of my work and guiding my girls through it all. But here I am, trying to figure it out.
As life was in the beginning of 2020, I had my prom and wedding clients scheduled, new lesson plans written for my classes and looking forward to moving on with the new life that was being created for me and my girls. Hopeful. Then, on March 13th, it all changed. To this day, I am still here, surviving, and trying to figure out how to thrive.
The one thing that the Rona has allowed me is to try to re-invent myself and my business. I am on a time clock to figure out what my future will look like in 18 months. My girls most likely will fly to the next phase in life and I get to figure out what my life will look like. I am trying to put my vision into action. I think I can see it a little bit more clearly. The question for me to answer is- how to I use my skills and my experiences to recreate my business, Home Ec Express. I lost most of my business due to the lockdown. I got laid off from my teaching job. Now I re-imagine.
I love to teach. I love to learn from others. I love to share information. I love to help others create their vision of their perfect day or event with perfect fitting clothes or perfect menu. Can I put it all together? I think the answer is yes. I think I have been inspired. I want to re-invent the world of Home Economics for the generations that have missed out on the education I was blessed with.
Stay tuned. I think I may be on to something!
