During this move I put OUTDOORBELLA on hold. I lost OVER 4k followers. It was hard to swallow. I worked so hard to get over 12k followers. Starting OUTDOORBELLA was so hard. I got a lot of hate when I first started OB in 2012, it was just my personal instagram of me adventuring and trying to get out depression. The feedback I received especially from people I didn’t even know was absolutely overwhelming and it made me want to build and create something that would bring all women (especially women like me) together to strengthen and encourage one another. Then at the end of 2013 I started it I became my grandpas caregiver who was dying from cancer. So I had to put it on hold. Then in Nov of 2014 I got pregnant and but on bedrest a lot through my pregnancy. So I had to put OB on hold for 9 months because I couldn't go out and do a lot of things. Then after I had my son it continued to go on hold because I was a new mom and trying to figure out life tasing a tiny little human.
Then 2017 came around and I thought this is it! This is the year OB is going to explode. And it was doing sooo amazing and we did our first HUGE event! Then October came and it went to a stand still. We bought a house and in Nov we were moving and I had to focus all on that. I then decided to get rid of all my ambassadors. I couldn't have them be a part of something that was in limbo and didn't want them to miss out on opportunities from other companies out there to be a part of. It killed me but I wasn't even sure on what my plans were with OB. I felt like the universe was constantly attacking me and not allowing OB to thrive.
I graduated a Business class in Dec and that was such an amazing class and opened a lot of doors and ideas for me. So for 2018 I am just going with the flow. Starting over and baby steps. I know OB is what I am supposed to do. I feel it deep in my bones. You know in life nothing has ever came easy for me. I have always had to work hard at it. I thought this would be different. However there are so may outdoor women communities out there. I have a personal story to share and when Bella's find OB I hope I touch their heart and soul.
So for 2018 I am just going with the flow. I'm living intuitively and listening to my heart and soul! I am not going to throw all these plans into because if it doesn't happen I internalize it and it makes me sick. 2018 is going to be an amazing year. Lots will be happening and I hope that you will make OB one that you follow on instagram & facebook and let us be apart of your 2018 adventure!
