What’s in a Name?

What’s In a name? August 18, 2014 was a day like any other workday in a number of ways; the ritual I went through to get ready for work that morning, the drive to work and walking through that door. What was about to be different about this day, was that I was going to set myself free to live the life of my dreams! I signed in to my computer, gathered all of my belongings and wrote my manager a letter of resignation. I looked around the room one last time and walked out the door. What a weight off my shoulders I felt the very minute I walked out that door.

My new business furniture painting business, began that very day. It took two years of painstaking deliberation to make the decision to move on. I’m not going to lie, this was a really rough time in my life as I felt I was going to retire from this company someday, so the decision to walk away didn’t come easy. I am so grateful that I made that decision, as now I have moved from furniture painting and graphic design to coaching female entrepreneurs to live an extraordinary life creatively.  I tell you all of that to say this is how I came up with the name for my business, This Life Goes On.

Going through the process of leaving what I thought would be security for me and my husband until we retired, to starting a brand new venture is very scary. I doubted that I could do it and be as successful as I wanted to be. The phrase “life must go on” is one that always came to mind when I went through something difficult in my life. I believe there are lessons to be learned every day. I know the path I have taken was laid out for me to get to where I am now and I am truly grateful for all of it, because I feel I am in the best season of my life. I have progressed from furniture painting and graphic design to coaching women entrepreneurs. I’ve touched fellow creatives’ lives and inspired them to build their own dream life. I love this part of my business the most. I get to share my experiences to help women grow from the inside out to create a successful business and fulfilling life for themselves and their families.

 

 

What I Do

My background has morphed through the years, from my education in the Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design, to working in quality assurance for a cement company, to furniture painting and graphic design. In this journey, I have found that many creatives come to me for more than just ideas for their next project. They also come to me for advice in their business. I’ve taken all of my work and life experiences and poured it into my certified creative coaching business, where I empower experienced women entrepreneurs to see their value so they can creatively and unapologetically charge fees for their work that reflects their new higher self. Nothing makes me happier than hearing or seeing the joy that is brought to a woman who has had success in her own endeavors.

Our Family

(Photo Credit: JoEllyn Schultz) Tom and I married a year before I finished college, in 1984. Tom has been in business for himself for all but three years of his career. If you were to ask anyone him, they would say he is honest and hard working and he would help you out if he could. He started out truck crop farming vegetable and now owns a sand and gravel business, Dalton Sand & Gravel

Tom and I didn’t have children, but we have many nieces and nephews that we love to spend time with when we can.  We just recently lost Maggie, the last of our second generation of dogs. We are currently looking for another Shih Tzu, as a companion for Jelly Bean, who is now five years old. We are down to three horses, Lily, Sam and Leta. I had seven horses at one time when I was barrel racing and raising them.

My parents lived in the lower half of our house for the past eight years. My mom passed away this year in April. Dad is still living here with us in our lower level. Having lived in the country for most of his life, he really enjoys it out here and is close to family that can care for him. 

My Purpose

I am sincerely grateful for the opportunities I have had to pursue my dreams and I want to pass on my experience to those that are looking to create their own dreams. I remember those early days well.
