The Good, the Bad, and the Hope Shot

When I finished my yoga teacher training, I couldn't wait to start teaching. I had been inspired by my own teachers, and I loved yoga so much that it felt natural to want to share that with the world. In addition, because I have an entrepreneurial spirit and I come from a long family line of entrepreneurs (my maternal great-grandmother brewed beer in her attic during prohibition to feed her family...does that count?), I knew that one day I would open my own yoga studio and make a career out of teaching yoga.

I had a plan that by May of 2019, by my 40th birthday, I would be self-employed. Unfortunately, I lost my job in December of 2016. So I had a choice, start early with the new career, or put it off another five years? I decided to start.
