Unlocking Financial Freedom: How I Surpassed My Monthly Salary in Just One Week as a Full-Time Entrepreneur

Unlocking Financial Freedom: My Journey to Success as a Full-Time Mompreneur

Embracing Full-Time Entrepreneurship

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or LinkedIn, you would know that I did a thing. I quit my corporate job a few weeks ago. Becoming a full-time entrepreneur was a leap of faith, a shift from treating my business as a side hustle to making it my main focus. 

With over 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, the decision to resign from my day job, despite facing challenges and anxiety, marked a significant turning point. It took me weeks, honestly, to get over the initial hurt and depression, but, as soon as I made up my mind, there was so much peace that I thought I’d share my journey with you. 

I hope this Blog helps someone who may be going through the same thing.


The Catalyst for Change

Turning Point: The Missed Promotions

The decision to fully commit to my business came after being overworked and being passed up for promotion twice in my day job. It was a catalyst, triggering weeks of reflection, emotional turmoil, and ultimately, a resolve for change.

Support System: My Family’s Encouragement

The theme of my recently concluded Ultimate Mompreneur Brunch was “Empowering Mom Entrepreneurs and their Support System”. How I was supported through this journey was exactly that. Discussing the decision with my family, particularly my children, was crucial. Their unwavering support, even expressed through applause, fueled my determination. 

I had lots of days of letting the tears flow. I had to grieve the death of my life as I knew it for the past seven years. As soon as I got past that stage, it was time to move on.

I attended an event a few months ago in New York and met one of my Ultimate Mompreneur Brunch panelists, Antonia Fifi. We were chatting about a few things, and this one statement stood out to me and gave me so much comfort. She said that I must have belief in myself and know my capabilities. She said if I know that I am the type of person that can make things happen, then I will be alright, because I will find a way to get a solution to any challenge that may arise. 

The transition from a traditional job to full-time entrepreneurship began with this belief.


Planning for Success

Strategic Shift: Treating My Business as the Main Focus

The key to success hinges on treating my business as the primary venture, not just a side hustle. This shift in perspective marked the beginning of a well-thought-out plan to achieve financial freedom.

Hard Work and Planning: The Cornerstones

While the week started with high energy and a meticulously planned schedule, reality brought unexpected twists. The completion of all quotations set the stage, but it was the unforeseen success of a quote that became the game-changer.


Surpassing Monthly Salary: The Turning Point

Financial Triumph: Profits Beyond Expectation

Throughout my life, God has always shown me by confirmation that I have made the right decision. This situation was no different! In a turn of events, or by divine design, the profits from a successful order surpassed what would have been my monthly salary in the day job! I felt a sense of confirmation that I made the right decision, and I am on the right track. This moment solidified the decision to transition fully into entrepreneurship, unlocking the financial freedom I had envisioned.
