Overcoming Burnout and Rediscovering Purpose

In the beginning of 2023, I found myself at a crossroads. After nearly a decade in entrepreneurship, I was facing major health issues that had taken a toll on both my physical and mental well-being. The relentless pursuit of growth and success had left me worn out and struggling to maintain the energy required to run my business effectively. It was time for a change.


I made the difficult decision to step away from entrepreneurship and take a job, a move that was both humbling and necessary. The transition was not an easy one, but it allowed me the space to reevaluate my priorities and reconnect with the deeper purpose that had initially drawn me to entrepreneurship.


The Importance of Seasons of Reflection and Renewal

During my time away from the demands of running my own business, I was able to go deeper in my relationship with God. This period of reflection and renewal was crucial, as it allowed me to address the underlying issues that had contributed to my burnout. I had to confront the ways in which I had been operating outside of God's will, chasing success and growth at the expense of my own well-being and the true purpose He had for me.


For those of you who have not taken the time to pause and reflect, I encourage you to heed the call. It can be tempting to push forward relentlessly, driven by the desire for achievement and recognition. But true progress often requires periods of rest and realignment. Don't be afraid to step back, seek God's guidance, and allow Him to reshape the desires of your heart.

Returning to Entrepreneurship with a Renewed Mindset

As I've begun to reenter the world of entrepreneurship, I've approached it with a vastly different mindset. Gone are the days of chasing trends and trying to replicate the success of others. Instead, I'm focused on aligning my business with the unique purpose and vision that God has placed on my heart.


I have taken several steps to get back on track:


*Rebranding and Refocusing:** I've taken the time to rebrand my book, "The Lessons of My Father," to better reflect the message of deliverance and generational healing that the Holy Spirit has woven throughout its pages. Additionally, I've launched "The Purpose Companion", a framework designed to help others discern and walk in their God-given purpose.

 *Embracing a Hybrid Approach:** While I still maintain my branding agency, I've expanded my offerings to include a live course called "Digital Goshen." This platform allows me to teach essential entrepreneurial skills while also incorporating a strong emphasis on the role of the Holy Spirit in business.

 *Prioritizing Local Connections:** Rather than relying solely on online marketing, I've been intentional about building relationships and seeking out local opportunities. I've found that this approach aligns better with the way God is leading me, as He has been opening doors for me to connect with people in my community.


The journey back to entrepreneurship has not been without its challenges, but I'm grateful for the lessons I've learned and the growth I've experienced. I know that the Lord is guiding my steps, and I'm committed to walking in obedience to His will, even when it looks different from what I had envisioned.

A Call to Embrace the New Season

If you, too, have found yourself in a season of burnout or disillusionment with entrepreneurship, I encourage you to take heart. God is not finished with you, and He has a plan for your life and your business that is far greater than anything you could imagine.


Be open to the new ways He may be leading you, even if they don't align with the path you had previously set for yourself. Trust that He is working all things together for your good and the fulfillment of His purpose. And remember, when you are weak, He is strong. Allow Him to carry you through this season of transition and restoration.


The future is bright, my friends. Let's walk into it together, hand in hand with the One who knows the plans He has for us!
