So before I even knew about this entrepreneurial world, I did the norm. I went to work tired, exhausted, cried every morning cause I dreaded it, and then went home to my children, rushed to do everything with them, and waited for the weekend, just to try and catch up on everything I should have done through the week, and then, Monday was here again. To say the least, work was my demise. But this was the life I was comfortable with and wasn’t really thinking about changing. I did everything as routine. Here I was this introverted woman, who really didn’t talk to anyone, minded my business, took care of my family and that was what I thought life would be like, until I retired. I was oblivious to what was happening around me. It was like being an entrepreneur was a hidden secret. I mean, people are really out here doing it!
Before all of this I was pretty doubtful in people, I wasn’t a believer. But it changes something in you when a complete stranger wants to help you. Our customers has blown our mind. I never wanted to put myself out there cause I never wanted to get judged. I always wanted a blog, because obviously, as you all can see, I love to write, and put my thoughts out there, but I never did. Why? Because I was scared of what people would say about me. I never wanted to get critiqued, but doing this has been an amazing journey. When we were fresh and had nothing, 3 followers on fb, a few on twitter and IG, people reached out to us and wanted to support us, for no reason at all; our photographer, jmtpd.com; Myavana; Denise Zakiya, fitness guru on Youtube; Ginny, from Embrace the Natural You; CharyJay, Youtube vlogger, Jenell Stewart, Youtube vlogger; and You! Our customers, from our first ones have been keeping us in business, your emails, your kind words, your words of encouragement, your shares and likes, and most of all your patronage; all of this has made me so overwhelmed with love. I am a changed person, I believe in the heart of other people, and that is the best feeling ever! And none of this would have happened if my husband and I didn’t start EverButter. The business itself is not the blessing, it is the things that came along with the business!
So to all of you, who are like me, introvert, composed, don’t want to be criticized and critiqued, but you have something in you that you want to get out, you have a passion, you have a talent, a mission, do it! We are our worst enemy. Start your business, and think about the “what ifs” after you become successful, but not in money, successful in love, happiness, peace. You see, regardless of how much money you make with your business, rather it is a lot or a little, it will give you life! As I always tell people, live your life, and don’t let life live you.
We thank everyone for allowing this journey to be so good!
