Hello! I’m LaMaya Harris
Hello! Thanks for visiting my site. I would like to share with you a little bit about myself and how I started to take control of my life.
I have worked in the information technology field for over ten years. The I.T. industry can be very unforgiving with long hours, late nights, and tight deadlines. I’m often left feeling depleted physically, mentally, and emotionally. In other words, I’m drained constantly feeling as if rest is always eluding me.
For the first five years of my career, I was a permanent employee. Afterward, I started contracting. To be honest I wanted a change after those first five years of my career. But I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I’d made a career of I.T. and that’s what I knew. So, I started contracting with the idea of being able to take my skills to different companies. I thought that was the solution. It was not!
Contracting was great in the beginning. But as the job market continued to down spiral, it became more increasingly difficult to find work with three months turning into six months and six months turning into a year, and then years of unemployment.
As a result, I depleted my savings and liquidated my 401k account. Eventually, I made the decision to sell my home. So, there I was pretty much starting over again. Everything that I’d worked so hard for was gone. I was angry, hurt, confused, and tired of the fight. Now even more I wanted out of I.T. and the corporate arena. Yet, I still wasn’t sure what my next step should be.
As the days went along things got better. I picked up the pieces and forged forward. But there was still this increasing heaviness on my heart that if I didn’t start putting something into place for my future I was going to be in trouble. I would have to work for the rest of my life. The thought of that kept me awake at night. I had lost all hope that I would ever have the life I’d always wanted. Clearly, my life hadn’t turned out the way I had thought.
Surely this wasn’t going to be all that life had to offer, was it? I started fervently praying to God asking Him to direct my path, open a door, give me an idea so that I could live a more abundant life.
Several months later God presented me with two business opportunities. After looking into the business model for a day or two and confirming this was truly God, I leaned in and hit the ground running with building my business.
Guess what? After I hit the ground running building my business, my hope was restored. That heaviness I felt in my heart was lifted! I could now see myself having the life I wanted complete with financial freedom, time freedom, and peace.
My earnest desire is that others would also experience renewed hope in living life.
If you are at a crossroads in your life and you feel all hope is lost, take back control of your life by starting YOUR own business. Don’t put off until tomorrow what can be done today. TODAY is the day for your new beginning!
