I’m sure you’ve all heard the comparison of birthing a baby and birthing a business. Well, for me, those two life events are even more closely aligned.
It was my first pregnancy (in 2002) that set me down the path of reflection and research that would alter my life. That time period planted the seeds for what would become my business Balance Personal Fitness Training, my blog Running on Balance, and the online community I hostess as Well Balanced Women.
Never when I started my research into running and pregnancy did I think that it would be the gestation period for a decade-long career. I was just someone who knew what she was interested in– running– and experiencing the new world of pregnancy.
I also knew that I liked (like– still true in the present tense) to be informed.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
For the details of this twisted, bumpy ride into entrepreneurship that still is fueled by my passion, check out my interview with Paul T. Shafer. Paul is a the host of Passion to Prosperity, a podcast that features people who have used their passion to fuel prosperity in their life.
(Spoiler alert: Prosperity does not mean I make so much money I don’t know what to do with it.)
In my episode of Passion to Prosperity, Paul and I chat about how I still feel lucky– prosperous!– to live a life with my passion for helping people feel great in their bodies as part of my everyday.
This life of mine is all about running to wellness.
Do you live a passion-fueled, prosperous life? Tell me about it in the comments.
