How a hiking trip impacted my business...

How the heck did a hiking trip impact my business??

About 6 years ago I decided, very last minute, that I was going to take a hiking trip in the mountains of Vermont. I had never done anything like before, and wasn't even entirely sure that I liked hiking, but it was October, so I figured the foliage and weather would be perfect. I was half right.

It rained EVERY SINGLE DAY. And we still hiked up mountains for about 10 hours a day.

I'm not going to lie to you, there were many times I thought to myself "I am doing this willingly?! What the hell was I thinking??" Every inch of me ached and muscles I didn't even know I had were screaming at me.

But, there was no other option then to keep going; I was halfway up a freaking mountain, where was I going to go? So, I kept at it. I should note, I was with a group of more experienced hikers, so I didn't make this trek solo (I'm not THAT brave!).

The week finished and while I was more exhausted then I had ever been in my entire life, I was also more exhilarated. I did something I never thought I could or would do. I showed myself that I am capable of more than I thought possible and I was PROUD as hell.

That's how I feel about my business. I had a rocky start (no one supporting me, boy friend telling me I would fail, starting at 40), but I felt called to do it...so I kept at it, even when that voice inside me was screaming that I must be crazy. I mean, I'm halfway up a mountain, right? Only thing to do is keep going. Eventually, you see the results. I promise.
