My Why for starting my business… I started it as a teeny tiny Saturday-to-Monday side hustle (that I thought was okay with my 9-to-5 boss until he flipped the script and claimed he never said that) because my 9-5 supervisor told me point-blank to “get out of here and start doing what you were actually trained for, before you lose your edge”. So I did – after several traumatic work experiences involving the toxic/gaslighter boss. I expanded my therapy private practice from side hustle to full time and I’ve never looked back.
My Why for getting up every day and still doing all this crazy “therapreneur” shit, is the clientele I’ve chosen to serve: the neurodivergent, LGBTQ+ folks who feel forced to twist themselves into pretzels to fit into a world that wasn’t built by or for people like them. They’re my Why, because I’ve been them. I *am* them. And I want to be the support for them that I never had for myself.
