Here is the story of Hannah’s CourageDo you remember the moment you decided to take the leap into owning your own business? How did it feel and what was it that made you take the leap?
The moment it felt real was when I was sitting with my friend at Casa Real, having a Margarita Business meeting discussing my dreams and ideas and she supported all of them. It made it feel so real. We took steps to design a logo and develop a website and I felt official. Before that point it was all just a dream in my head. That meeting propelled me forward and gave me momentum.How long had you been dreaming of your business? What inspired it?
Soothe Your Soul grew out of my broken heart. Seven years ago, my first husband was killed in an accident. As I grieved and tried to begin to heal, I had a hard time finding resources to assist my children and I. I actually traveled out of the state several times looking for complementary healing and support in my grief. When I began to feel stronger, I knew I needed to give back the gifts that had been bestowed upon me and share what I had learned with my community. Out of that desire grew Soothe Your Soul, and now two years later we are growing. It makes my heart sing with joy. My goal is, always has been and always will be to serve in a genuine and loving way. To provide a safe and nurturing space for healing and wellness to unfold.
