Geraldine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me to grow my business by providing coaching services to mothers on work-life-balance.
I started my business as a blog in the very beginning. I used my passion for writing to speak to others and document my journey through motherhood as a single working mother. As my blog grew I began to touch many other mothers whose stories were similar. That’s when I decided to become a certified Life Coach to take the extra step in helping. My passion for this stems from my own story of being a single mother losing myself in motherhood and not knowing my purpose in life outside of providing for my son. After having my son at 20, I decided to take time off from school to focus on providing for him. I finally graduated with my Associate's degree in Health Services Administration. Although it was a huge accomplishment I realized it wasn’t what I really wanted to pursue. That’s when I decided to further my entrepreneurship education. I decided to go back to school and get my certification in Women’s Entrepreneurship from Cornell University in September 2020. Society makes mothers feel that their only purpose is to be good mothers but I wanted to show that we can be amazing mothers, with confidence, conquering fears, balancing life, and managing our time to include self-care and self-fulfillment. That has been my mission from day one, to let mothers know that they are not crazy for wanting more. During my journey, I too felt that I was crazy for wanting more for myself and in my life, something to show my kids that anything is possible and to make them proud. But I wasn’t crazy, and the mothers who’ve lost themselves aren’t crazy either.
