What is holding you back from living the life you always dreamt of? What is your biggest fear? Are you fear of failure?
Are you afraid to take a risk to move forward in life because you are imagining yourself becoming homeless on the side of the road, clutching a bottle of cheap liquor and begging for change? Are you afraid of losing everything, not knowing if you could ever gain again?
What if I told you that no matter how much you lost, you could still rebuild your life? What if I showed you how to do it? Would you allow yourself to be free to let go and take a firm grasp of your destiny?
This is exactly what I did nearly a year ago during TheRebuild Your Life Project. I became homeless on purpose, giving away everything that I owned and starting over with nothing in order to teach women through my women’s empowerment website, how to rebuild their lives after an extreme loss.
During the 4 months that I spent as a homeless woman in Hollywood, Florida, I discovered the truth behind those who fail and remain failures versus those who bounce back immediately. As I catalogued my journey into and out of homelessness on my youtube channel, I revealed the strategic mental strategies that every woman needs to have in order to bounce back from failure. I also investigated the homeless lifestyle and presented the survival resources you would need if you ever became homeless.
Homelessness is not a permanent situation for those with a heart to grow. You don’t have to remain in an abusive relationship or feel trapped by your lifestyle any longer. You can walk away and rebuild again and again. In fact, your loss may be the key to unlocking your brightest future.
Take a journey with me during The Rebuild Your Life Project as I explore the pitfalls and benefits of homelessness. This was no picnic for me, during this project I experienced the worst case scenarios that most women fear. I was raped. I spent time in jail. I failed to meet my goals as I organized a job fair for homeless women. I stood on the roadside begging for donations in the hot sun and was ridiculed and laughed at, but I persevered and I still managed to overcome.
You can too.
