👨👧Growing up with an immigrant father who came from poverty but worked his way up to a PhD and a ticket to America, I was taught to go to school, get good grades, graduate college, and get a corporate job.
🇺🇸 This was my dad’s “American Dream” for me.
After 1️⃣5️⃣ years of being a rat in the race of corporate Sales & Recruiting, I burnt out and launched my own professional home organization company in 2018.
💰 I netted a profit in my first year of my business that allowed me to cover all my basic expenses with zero debt.
🤷🏻♀️ Dad is slowly coming around, although he still has no idea what I actually do!
🙅🏻♀️ Breaking the limiting beliefs and anchors of our family are key to making it in entrepreneurship- especially as a first generation American.
💁🏻♀️ When I stopped caring what people think, my business soared. This is my American Dream!
