Meet Monaica Ledell – The Mommy Breadwinner™.
Here’s my fun bio (story) and you can find my more professional one below too…
You know, I didn’t grow up dreaming of owning my own business. I had high hopes of being a famous-singer-doctor-movie-star and having some babies.
It was terrifying going to college. I had no clue what I wanted to do except be a famous-singer-doctor-movie-star, have some babies, and I thought being a psychologist might be cool too. And when you’re this clear about your path, it makes perfect sense that your parents should pay $40,000 a year on a private college education halfway across the country.
So I studied science and cognitive psychology (learning why we think the way we do and what we respond to) and sang here and there when someone would pull out a guitar or play “Betty Davis Eyes.”
Actually, the LAST THING I thought I would do in the world was become an entrepreneur. But fate has a funny way of making things come true in your life. You know what I mean?
And it was even MORE shocking to learn I would step in to the role of Mommy Breadwinner™.
Experts say you have to do what you love or you’ll never make it. I think that’s a nice little story (lie).
Sometimes you have to do what is NECESSARY to survive on your way to finding what you love.
- I can remember vacuuming and cleaning nasty toilets with a one-year-old on my hip just to make ends meet.
- I can remember the gut-wrenching guilt and anger that came from dropping my daughter off at day-care so I could go to a job that I couldn’t stand.
- Or the shame I felt when I brought my baby girl home after a trip to the grocery store and we had no electricity. It was in the dead of summer and my husband and I camped out on the deck with her and tried to pretend.When you’re just trying to survive, you do what it takes. I had to be brave and trust that everything was going to work out.
I just kept putting one foot in front of other until I got to the next mountain to climb. I had a very loving mentor who called me one day and offered to train me in sales.
Life. Changing. Moment.
I said, “YES!” (totally freaked out of mind), but he taught me the #1 skill I would need to survive in business. I just didn’t know it at the time…
Fast-forward a few years later, and I have a thriving consulting and online marketing agency. I’ve been featured in some major publications and get to work with some INCREDIBLY powerful clients who are doing amazing things on the planet.
And all that trudging through the crap got me closer and closer to finding my bliss.
Fate will do that if you just trust her and keeping saying yes. All it takes is a sliver of faith and hell of a lot of persistence.
Welcome to my world. I’m happy to meet you.
I want to help as many women who dream of having a thriving online business (whether you’re just trying to survive or you’re crystal-clear about your passion) be successful.
Hang on tight – don’t ever lose sight of your dreams. Fate will work everything else out for you. I promise.
