Maybe you’re like me, and in every job or role you’ve held, you have felt something missing, or you’ve just longed to have something that’s your own. I’ve only ever known working odd jobs and multiple of them as my husband and I navigated our way through early adulthood and parenthood.
My most stable and longest-lasting job was in the restaurant where I started as a host and worked my way up to restaurant management (which actually was a fancy way of saying, “I’ll pay you for 40 hours, but you’ll work for 60+, and we will own your schedule and your time”). Don’t get me wrong, I actually loved what I did. I think a part of me thrives in the chaos and fast-paced environment a restaurant brings, but something was missing. I wasn’t feeling fulfilled, and I felt God had another calling on my life.
If that’s you today, listen in, because my guest today is going to bring the fire and share her story of leaving a very stable corporate career to build her own business and inspire others to do the same. You can find joy right where you’re at, in whatever season or job you are in, and you’re called to do that. If you are in a season of motherhood, embrace that gift! If you are in a season as a working mom, be intentional with the time you have and be an example in your workplace and home. Learn to live joyfully where you are, and work to get where you feel God is leading you next.
Lisa Williams is an Alaska girl, born and raised, married with three kids, is a life-long learner, loves to travel, and sings in a praise band.
