Welcome to Abandoning Average!
The idea for this space started while I was in a low place. I felt sad, alone, and disappointed. So often I would get excited about making a change--in my life or for others lives. That excitement always seemed to fall flat on the ears of others. No one else appeared to want to make an impact. I have been told I am "too challenging" and that I ask "why" too much. However, the people saying that are the ones who want to live ordinary lives and be "average."
Well, I believe there are others out there who want to impact the world with their passions, skills, and uniqueness. I want to inspire those people to take action. Break through the average desire to fit in and know that you were created to be you--to shine as an individual. Emerge as one who does the influencing for God's glory.
It's time to stop letting fear stop us. Whether its fear of the unknown, fear of people's opinions, fear of failing, it doesn't matter. God did not put you on this earth to never do anything because you are scared. That's a fact.
Abandon the Average.
Hello, hello, my friend!
Let's get down to getting to know each other! I am first and foremost a Christ-follower, a wife to my incredible husband, a Third Culture Kid (go look it up and learn a new thing!), a history nerd, and a multi-passionate business owner. I currently own two businesses that I am in love with.
The first is Steward Development Group--a faith-based consulting business with the mission of encouraging and equipping individuals to master stewardship of their skills and relationships. The second is in hair care! Who woulda thunk? But through that business, I am helping women break through their fears and insecurities in life and in business. That, in all honesty, provided the space for me to actually start mulling over this idea for Abandoning Average.
And voila! We are here!
