Two Years Of Compass Maven

It’s hard to believe, but Compass Maven is officially 2!

Time is a funny thing - it can feel fast and slow all at the same time. In some ways, it feels like setting this website “live” and sending out my first newsletter happened even more than 2 years ago. In other ways, it feels like yesterday.

While time can be a tough thing to understand, I know one thing for sure: I never could have predicted the journey my life would take over the past 2 years.

If you told me I’d be where I am today, I wouldn’t have believed you. Some things have stayed the same (my commitment to personal growth, to helping other women reconnect with their inner voice, to reshaping how we think about our careers and passions), while many things (a list too long to go into) have changed. All of it a learning and growing experience!

Thank you for being here, reading my content, sharing it with your friends, and working with me over the past 2 years! Entrepreneurship is invigorating and challenging all at once - and your support means so much to me! It’s been an exciting ride and I can’t wait to see what comes next!

To celebrate, I'm rounding up my favorite blog posts that I’ve written over the past 2 years.

It’s a new year and each of you have different goals or areas of your life you’re focusing on for 2019. No matter where you are in your journey right now, I hope there is something below that resonates with you.
