Taking the plunge and starting your own business in a field where you have been working for others for your entire career is daunting. Branching off on my own has been a goal of mine for a while and now I finally have the opportunity to do it in a new town; a new environment that is much different than the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that is Los Angeles.
I must admit that I am looking forward to the slower pace of a beach town yet lately, I look in the mirror and see the same look on my face as I see on so many of my client's during that first breastfeeding consult post-delivery. It is the look of a mind swimming with new information, fear of the unknown, and a drive to succeed and meet new goals.
What I always say to my clients is that learning to breastfeed is hard, just like learning any other skill it comes with challenges, takes time, repetition, practice, patience, and strength of self. It is unrealistic to assume you will be good at something new right away.
I plan on taking my own advice and honestly, the good news is I know I have built an excellent foundation for achieving dreams and changing lives. I have had incredible mentors, and a wealth of success thus far and I couldn't be more thankful for that. Most importantly, I LOVE what I do. Helping mothers and babies build and establish their foundations is a joy that I am addicted to and luckily get to bask in every day.
SB, I am coming' for you! and to you SB county mamas, I am SO excited to help you build a strong foundation for your family through infant feeding support, and newborn care.
