"How'd you get your husband's support?"
Once I finally had the vision of what I wanted to do and I made the decision that I was going to go after it, I knew I had to have "the talk." See I'd had all sorts of mlm products in the salon. I never had any success with them. So when this new company came into the picture, let's just say @driggins91
was like "what now, Lydia?" And to be honest, I thought this probably would just be new products I'd use in the salon and that would be it. No thoughts of building a team or significantly changing our life.
So fast forward a little over a month from joining, I'm growing a team, money is coming in, I'm learning more about the heart of the company I joined. And something in me knew that this was what I had been praying for every day. I'd be driving the 25 miles home from the salon with our sleeping 5 month old baby girl praying for a way to make an impact but still have the freedom to rock my baby to sleep at night. I'd pray for a way to get my husband home more. See at that point, we had never even lived together for more than 3 months at a time because of his career. So once that voice in me told me this could be God answering those prayers and I knew we had to talk. .
I'm a big believer that to create big and wild dreams, you have to do crazy and wild things. Those of you that know we fairly well know I'm a little crazy. And Dustin knows this all too well. We chatted about where I wanted to go with this business and the sacrafices we would have to make as a family. And then I asked for his blessing. Because if he wasn't onboard I know I couldn't do it. Thank God he said yes to my crazy vision.
This journey hasn't been easy. I get asked how he puts up with me. And I just shrug and say, "It's a miracle! And I don't want to question a miracle." My best advice I could give you is to get them involved. Share your vision and your dreams for this. Be vulnerable with them. And ASK them for support and their blessing. I think you'll be surprised. .
So shout out to the business partners, spouses, and supporters who help us pursue our dreams! Who pushes you forward? Holler at them today....or tag them below in the comments.
