I learned how to grow slow and steady, seeking the Lord first and strategy second.
I learned how to find like-minded business-owners who valued the same things I did, (instead of experts who didn’t). And together we learned how to help each other grow in the right ways.
I learned how to work in different seasons of my life, balancing my roles as wife, mom, daughter, and business owner by giving my time and energy to the things that season required.
I learned (the hard way) how to lay down big business ideas in exchange for family priorities. On the flip side, I’ve also seen firsthand how God can take a tiny idea and turn it into something huge when I’m not even kind of expecting it.
I learned (and I’m still learning) how to run a business anchored in Christ. One where I am able to fulfill my vocation to my family first, and then be able to encourage others in words and products.
And by the grace of God, running a business this way has allowed me to grow an income that has helped pull us out of debt, finally buy a house, and actually start dreaming about the future.
The blessing of this business has changed my life. Not only has it helped my own family, Anchored Women has given me the opportunity to encourage and equip women from all over the world, right from my own home.
If you want to do the same, I’d love to help you out.
