How Being a Mom has Prepared me for Entrepreneurship

 

Raising 6 children is a book in and of itself but since I have under 1000 words to express so I’m going to cut to the chase. 

1. The Training Ground

I would consider having six children to be one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. The sheer strength, stamina, selflessness, courage, energy and fortitude to birth my babies all at home; the organization, cooking, cleaning, education, teaching them skills and tools that they could carry into their adulthood to cultivate and maintain relationships and to support themselves; self-care, values, priorities, ethics and not to mention the extraordinary love, nourishment and spirit to support their well-being. WHEW! Just talking about it blows my mind that I spent more than half of my life dedicated to them, and of course even as young adults (now 22-33), I will always be their mom and deeply care, support, act as a confidante and best friend to guide them when called on. And of course, then there are the grandkids...7 months and 5 years old.

2. Giving Birth

At 56 years old, after my last child left the nest, I decided to birth yet another baby as a solopreneur… Beyond Broth. I really had no idea what was in front of me. I just knew that my driving passion and mission for over 30 years has been to support humanity in excellent holistic self-care and wellness as I had offered my clients and family.

 

3. The Inspiration & Passion

Alongside raising my six children, my passion couldn’t wait, and so I taught yoga and dance, was a massage therapist, health and wellness coach, guided folks to have a healthy lifestyle and diet, taught cooking and even became a personal chef. My  mantra has been... "Everyone deserves to be well nourished on all levels in all ways... it is our birthright."

4. Oh The Lessons!

So in addition to my dedication and commitment on my path of service I also needed to embark on serious lessons in business because I had never done anything quite like this before....and it certainly has had challenges...all worthwhile!

I launched Beyond Broth almost 2 years ago with the support of so many friends and family as well as those in the industry that said "there is nothing like what you’re doing and we want it!" As well as the warnings from seasoned entrepreneurs in the industry..." Most won't make it through their first year either because the product just isn't good, or the packaging; they try to move too fast too soon or they run out of money". I am listening to you all!

I could not have even attempted this extraordinary adventure without the training I received from raising my six children because to do this business is requiring not only tremendous energy, faith, passion and perseverance... but flexibility, humility, organization, an open mind and heart plus learning skills I have never known before.

                          

 

What really keeps me going is my desire and mantra that everyone deserves to be well nourished! I am doing my very best to help that happen in the world by not only serving healthy delicious vegan broth to mainstream and health-conscious Americans... but I want to see it on every red cross truck... feeding people in disaster areas or who can’t get good food because of shortages or other tragic circumstances.

I’m on a mission to see it in hospitals, universities; for folks that want healthy, simple yummy food for camping, hiking, travel; for families who are on the go; working Mom's that don’t have time to make good food because they’re trying to juggle so many things in their lives. The possibilities and needs are truly endless. 

                        

Everyone deserves to be well nourished. It is our birthright! and I am excited and so compelled to make this happen! 

Try a blend today and share our mission with the world!

Thank you for all of the love and support.

Grace
