So this year (and by year, I mean 2016, LOL) has brought a lot of changes in my life. A lot of amazing changes, but it's been a whole lot of changes. And none so more than in this past week!
Yup - the big one is that I quit my government job. It's crazy and it's taking a huge leap of faith, but it's definitely been one of the most freeing decisions I've ever made!! I knew that focusing on being my own boss, owning my own business, being an entrepreneur, is *exactly* what I needed to do!
So my first week of being my own boss started out really well. I had a busy schedule, but one that I planned and *wanted* to do! And on that first Monday, I got an email that stopped me in my tracks. I won't go into a lot of details, because it's not 100% necessary, but let's just say that it's one that had me contacting attorneys and working on changing my business name.
So I spent the first several days of my first week trying to think of a new business name. It took me a long while to think of Wellness Wisdom with Whitney, so trying to think of yet another name was proving to be difficult.
I'll be honest, it was stressing me out. I was beyond frustrated that I was kicking off my first week of entrepreneurship with having to change my business name!
Until I realized this was exactly what I needed. I needed the fresh start. Something to kick off my new business ventures! I had closed myself off to any changes....and it was wreaking havoc on my stress levels!!!
It's sad to admit how long it took to think of my new business name. I won't even tell you how many different things I threw out there, working with my friends and family and business partners. I was googling the heck out of everything, and they were ALL taken!!
It was getting more and more frustrating as the days went by. So here comes Friday...I'm at home washing dishes and it hits me. Literally. My Instagram name, thanks to my beautiful best friend, is 3dub_wellness. Duh. Why shouldn't my new business name be 3DubWellness?!
I started this process on Tuesday morning and it took me until Friday to figure it out!! I was lovingly asked, "Why didn't we think of this sooner?!" It makes me laugh thinking about it now!
Once I embraced that this change was a good thing, it all started coming together. And once I walked away from trying to force a new name, it came to me so easily!
I'm even more excited for these upcoming changes! New business name, new business logo, new marketing techniques, a whole new me, a whole new business!
Here's to the success of 3DubWellness and a beautiful 2016!!
Oh, and how could I possibly forget this other HUGE change?! I am now the Strength Instructor/Coach at DeSel Fit here in Virginia Beach!! You *HAVE* to come check them out!! It really is a place where the workout is the party!!
Try out one of their classes, or come join me for some strength training Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m.!!
I am beyond excited to add this to my schedule, as it's such an awesome experience!! It's a great environment, great coaches and instructors, and an amazing place to workout!!
Here's to my health coaching business, sharing essential oils with everyone (because they really are THAT amazing!), working at DeSel Fit, and yep, even sharing Thirty-one with people! I started using Thirty-one bags to tote around my oils and other supplies to my oils classes and events. And now I am IN LOVE!!
Just another change I've added to my repertoire! Check out my essential oils website to learn more about them, check out DeSel Fit to see what they're all about (I promise, you won't be disappointed), and don't forget about Thirty-one!! From bags to organization for your home to beautiful pillows and jewelry, Thirty-one has it all!!
I hope you have a fabulous week! Yes, it's Monday, but make today the best Monday possible!!
With love and wellness,
