Why Sleep Consulting...
Since I was little I always had a passion to help others and as I’ve grown and found who I am my interests and passions have changed. When I first started my career I was very passionate about the Early Childhood Education system and wanted to leave my print in that field. I worked for multiple different childcare centers and branched out into doing government work in the education field. This work left me with the feelings of helping others and really influencing others lives for the positive. This is what I enjoyed and planned to continue. God had other plans for me and my family.
I had four kids in four years and quickly discovered that the path I was on was not going to support my family nor gave me the time and energy I wanted to invest in my children. With this realization I made the change to be a stay at home mom. Although I love staying home with my kids I found that I found much more value in the time I had with them if I was able to take time for myself. I dabbled in many different positions in Early Childhood Education but discovered that if I wanted a career that worked for my family in this session I would have to create it. And here we are at the launch of this new business. This new adventure.
I toyed around with many different business plans and paths for multiple years but decided to pursue the accreditation and sleep consulting path due to the need for quality sleep education. When my first daughter was born I received tons of help and she slept great from the beginning but when I had my second fifteen months later I was faced with many challenges and sleep was one of them. My son would not sleep unless held and was having trouble eating. I felt like a terrible mom, babies are supposed to be born knowing these skills (or so I thought) and my child couldn’t. I struggled through this time and place by myself with very little support and I don’t want other parents to have to do this.
Being a parent is tough and there are so many different areas of parenting we are “supposed” to be experts in. But as parents we can’t and we need to find our strengths and acknowledge our weaknesses. If we can do this and support one another in their weakness with our strengths the world will be a much better place and we can really find our village to help raise our children.
