It was March 14, 2020, the office was closed down due to COVID and Patrice, an HR professional, found herself homeschooling her two kids, stressed out to the max.

She was searching for how to make the best of the situation and what the right path was for herself because she was tired of feeling emotionally detached from her work and sacrificing her family time. It was then that she made a life-changing decision - one that, in just three short months, challenged everything she believed about what was necessary in order to do the work she was passionate about AND make a great income.

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake and Patrice discuss how Patrice began the process of learning to trust and value herself and what she has to offer, understanding that none of us are alone when we struggle (and how to reach out and find a helping hand), and being okay with the fact that your journey is an amazing work in progress. Tune in for a firsthand look at a life that changed for the better with a few key mindset shifts.

“Before, feeling stuck was hard for me. I felt like walls were closing in... So, me feeling like I now have a new lease on life in a way like to be able to own my own destiny is incredible to me, it's life changing. To be able to see myself in a light I just wasn't seeing myself before is the biggest life change for me in the last three months. And I'm really proud of it. Because when COVID hit, I wasn't sure. And all of the stressors many people out there are experiencing right now, many of those stressors were overwhelming. And stopping and getting clear about who I am and what I want gave me the confidence to then go and do it.”
