What's going on you guys? How have you guys been doing with this pandemic and tragedies going on world wide? Are you taking care of yourself and your mind? Are you recharging and taking a break from social media? Well you need too if you haven't. Its okay to step away to refuel. Please take care of yourself you are valued, loved and appreciated!!!
I know its been a long time since I've written #Tulipinspirations. I have become even more motivated in becoming my own boss and not to work for the white man after #GeorgeFloyds, #BreonnaTaylor, and #AhmaudArbery death. Also due to a co worker of mine that has been with our agency for 10+ years was given a 15$ GC to say thank you for giving us 10+ years of your life, hard work and dedication to our company. Whattttt oh naw! They dont value us!
Below you will find a transparency post written by me. I feel like it is important to document this journey not only for myself but you guys as well. I am being so intentional and manifesting EVERYTHING that I want when it comes to my life, business and marriage.
I have been in business for almost 2 years now. I started my business the end of 2017 around Christmas time. I told my husband come January 2018 I will be taking Tulip’s Bomb Body Care full throttle and making it an actual business. I told him that I was going to quit my job and work on my dreams and become a FT entrepreneur. He was a lot anxious because we had bills, our business was not making a lot of money, we had personal things going on and losing out on steady income was not it. I was telling Rod some of my visions that I had for TBBC and at the time he did not see what I saw and told me like it was, “babe I’m sorry but you quitting your job can’t happen right now, we have way to much going on and we can’t afford you losing your job/ income; sorry babe". Of course I was pissed, mad and probably crying because I felt at the time he wasn’t on my side, he wasn’t listening to me and he wanted me to work for the white man forever lol!!!
(Now before y'all minds start going Let me say that my husband has always supported and been there every step of the way, he was looking out for our family and making sure we did not move too prematurely. Our business would not be where it is if it was not for him)
Fast fwd to June 2020 I am still in business and our business is successful and growing daily. We are growing so much to the point where it’s hard for me to actually work for my FT job because I’m constantly working, planning, or getting something together for my business. When I’m at work all I can think about is my business, what I have to do, what I want to do, and how I can’t wait to leave my job and transition into entrepreneurship. I can’t wait until I am working for myself, putting my people on, doing what makes me happy and doing things that speaks to my soul!
Boom check this . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Monday, Rod and I were on the couch talking about business ideas and new business ventures. We were conversing about my new and old visions, dreams, goals for #Tulipsbombodycare and how I wanted to take it to the next level. The visions that I have are so grand they really do scare me but I know that I will accomplish anything I set my mind to do by keeping God 1st, staying prayed up and keeping the faith while trusting the process. If I want it, Ima go get it, period! I expressed some concerns I had and how it’s hard to work on my business if I’m helping somebody else build theirs and how I can do a lot more with our business if I simply had more time. Think about it, 8-10 hours a day I am working for a company who will easily replace me once I leave, they don’t value or appreciate me but they use me because I am an asset, I’m educated and I’m a hard worker. That same energy is the energy I want to apply into me and my business. He starred at me and said, “Wow babe yea it’s time for you to become a FT entrepreneur so you can solely focus and put all your time and energy into your business, just think about what you can do for yourself if you are working on your business 8-10 hours a day instead of 2-4 hours a night after you had worked all day”.
Yawl I was screaming!!!!!!!
I couldn’t believe he finally spoke the words I have been waiting to hear for 2 years now. At that point I’m like yes God, my husband gets it and he sees it, Thank you. This weekend we will be mapping out a 1 year plan on how I will transition from an employee to BOSS status. He believes in me, my business and supports 100%. I am betting and investing on myself. What do I have to loose?
Over the next year I will be extremely intentional and dedicated in taking the necessary steps to becoming my Own Boss/ CEO / FT Entrepreneur and motivator. The journey to full time entrepreneurship isn’t easy and I’m okay with putting in the work. However, I am willing to put in the energy, time, and effort to making ALL my dreams a reality. I am so proud of myself and how far I’ve come. Know that nobody or nothing can hinder your success and path that God has for you, you got this. Believe it and receive it. Remember the name (Tulip's Bomb Body Care) cause we coming for everything that is ours plus more. It’s not a game- it’s a lifestyle.
