Hi friends! Thank you checking out Hustle With A Happy Heart! You've landed here for a reason, so my hope is that you find some stuff here that you will find fun and helpful. I've been married 28 years to an awesome, stylish dude named Jay, we have 3 beautiful daughters, and a wheaten terrier named Lucy. In 2004, I left a successful corporate career to stay home with my daughters and start a business I could run from home. Four years into that role, with 3 little girls at home, my life totally changed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I've learned more during my time at home with my kids, going through cancer, and running 3 different businesses, than I did in 17 years in corporate America. I love making connections with people and sharing things that I have learned along the way that I believe have made me a stronger, better person, and I'm on a mission to ensure my journey NEVER goes to waste.
Today, I am proud to be part of a new breed of entrepreneurs who are changing the face of business. By combining business, purpose and service, we have the power to create powerful social enterprises that can truly change the world. I feel SO lucky. I've worked hard to create a life around my family that allows me to run 2 businesses from home, spending time doing the things I’m most passionate about -- entrepreneurship, helping people, and giving back to my community.
I love traveling, entertaining, and college football. I love sitting down for coffee or wine with a friend. I love making charcuterie boards and decorating my house for every season of the year. I love photography, books about business and self-improvement, and listening and dancing to music (I'm a country fan, but I DO love me some boy bands too -- please don't judge!) I love being around positive, compassionate people who bring out the best in me and push me to do the uncomfortable things that I know will help me grow.
I believe we all have gifts and talents that can be used for the greater good. I believe that even the smallest acts of kindness can change the trajectory of someone's life. I believe we all have the power to make a difference.
