After 13 years in the classroom, Laura took a leap of faith. She tweeted: “I just quit my teaching job to pursue my dream of being a full-time writer.”
What followed was pure magic! ✨
Suddenly, her notifications exploded with encouragement, praise, and an outpouring of support. Half a million eyes saw her bravery, and her website, once visited by only a handful, welcomed 1,400 visitors in a day!
But this heart-based leap wasn’t without its challenges. Laura dreaded phone calls and sales pitches and questioned her ability to find clients; it felt overwhelming.
However, the universe had a plan.
Laura realized this heart-based career change wasn’t just about working differently; it was about finding her perfect-fit working relationships, those kismet connections that make everything click.
Now, she’s thriving with clients who value her style, and every project radiates gratitude + respect. Laura’s days are filled with writing, breaks as needed, and precious moments like taking her kids to school. 💛
I love Laura’s story so much and feel honored to share it with you.
