Not sure what kind of business, you should start. Bring your idea or just your skills and passion to the call. I will help you form a business from them.

Great inquiry Monqiue! Lifestyle business is simply one that fits your lifestyle. As women, we have some many hats we wear plus we have ambitious professional aspirations. Too many times our aspirations and our personal lives collide rather than support. How would it feel to have a business that actually supported the lifestyle you wanted to live? A business that gave you time for your hobbies, family and special interests. A business where you could work from home, in an office or on the beach - whatever your inspiration comes from. Can't wait to discuss more on the call.

I have always heard business women use the term "lifestyle" business and I have always wanted to learn more. Looking forward to this discussion.

I am in my personal joy-space with my career and look forward to revisiting the reasons why I released myself but "golden handcuffs". See you there!!
