In 2023, I made a bold move and said goodbye to my cushy, corporate job.  𝗪𝗛𝗬?

Because life is simply too short to play it safe. It's time to embrace the thrill of new adventures and unleash my entrepreneurial spirit! After all, 𝘯𝘰 𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘬, 𝘯𝘰 𝘳𝘦𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥.

As I recognized the value I bring to an organization, I asked myself an important question: "Can I establish a brand, package it effectively, and expand it to benefit other organizations?" The answer was a resounding YES! So, what was I waiting for? The time had come to chase my dreams.

And so, with unwavering determination, I made the life-changing decision to resign from that comfortable, familiar space. It was time to take this show on the road, to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to building my own business.

Now, as an Entrepreneur, my journey continues. I remind myself daily to master my craft, surpass my own expectations, and fall deeply in love with my purpose. Each day presents new opportunities for growth and success.

I've learned that whatever idea has been tugging at your soul, it's time to take action. Don't be afraid to give up the good to pursue something truly great.

Be unique. Be brave enough to be your authentic self. When you exhibit bravery, the universe rewards you.

This is the story of my journey....How J. Schu went from corporate employee to HBIC. Remember folks, happiness is a journey, not a destination.
