It all began when I said “What if…”
What if I don’t have to wait until I graduate college to live somewhere new? What if I don’t love my 9-5 job? What if 20 is old enough to raise a dog? What if I can have ice cream for dinner and pizza for dessert?
Well maybe that’s taking it a little too far, but you get the idea.
Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
Beautiful Detour was born after a very lackluster first year of college and after feeling a lot of pressure to do things just the right way (whatever that means). After a lot of going back and forth and with the amazing support of my family, I decided to take a year off and travel. I didn’t set a deadline to go back to school or to really know what I was doing at all. I traveled the world, eventually went back to school, graduated with a job directly tied to my degree, and then I quit that job to start my own business and work with amazing, passionate women.
My favorite thing to do is to work with inspiring women and help them pursue dreams and goals that they are actually passionate about to create a life filled with joy and intention.
If you are here because you want to take that day dream and turn it into a reality, or maybe you want to figure out how to work less and travel more, or maybe you want to create a community of like-minded women, I am here to help. Beautiful Detour is all about never putting a bucket list on hold. We need to stop waiting for the perfect time or for permission and instead start living for the right now.
Dreaming big and doing good. You are the best example you can set for yourself.
The fluff, I want to provide the best information and take out the stuff that doesn’t matter.
