For many women who are searching for a fresh start, the search starts on the outside. You look for a new job with a new commute, better pay, different people… and then you flounder, until you realize that the work starts with you.

Leslie Quinn found herself waking up each morning dreading her commute & the time spent away from her kids. With traditional retail in decline, she had been thinking for years about starting her own business as a way to give back and make a real difference in the world. But fear of failure and not knowing the right steps to take (or if she could successfully replace her income) were holding her back. Fast forward a few months, and the response to Leslie’s business exceeded her expectations. It was all she could do to keep up with the demand.

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake and Leslie discuss how Leslie finally came to the point where she was ready to make a radical change, creating space to give back to your community and meaningfully connect (especially now), and the most important improvements Leslie’s new direction has made in her life. Tune in for some encouraging inspiration on innovating during a tough time.

Favorite Quote

“If you're even thinking about it, you've got to explore it. You've got to look into it further. And don't wait. Time is precious. Believe that you can do it, know that you're capable of doing it... And, you know, it's just so much more helpful if you have someone to share that and help guide that path for you.”
