HER DESIGN STORY – WOMEN DESIGNING THEIR OWN WORKING-LIFE STORIES

I went out seeking the woman who was designing her own story…the one when she was out there creating a life and business from her heart on her terms. I asked her to show us the inside world of the strength, fortitude, resilience and perseverance that’s been required to live out her passion and her need to find a work-life balance that feels right in her heart. I was very clear that I wasn’t looking for the superstars in their industry but a woman who was on her journey to get where she wanted to be.  

In 24 hours I had 45 women who reached out to share her story and they continue to come my way, proof to me that these women needed a voice. I am so grateful for their deep honesty and insights and my hope is that you will feel not only inspired, but understood in the pursuit of running your own business from home. In my opinion, they are the heroines of their own story. If you would like to share your story, please reach out to me at hello@carmendarwin.com. You can also find me in my Home Design and Lifestyle Sisterhood group where we talk about how to add more design and a little more lifestyle to your working life. You can request to join for free here. 

Enjoy the read!
