Rima catches listeners up on her entrepreneurial pursuits, which include low “ebbs” along the way. With all transparency, Rima talks about a lack of motivation, feeling stuck in work & life, & how “ebbs” can be depressing. She shares how she deals with these moments & how it’s actually a good thing to have ups and downs in life. She talks about the importance of creating space for different opportunities to come in & being open for what comes. Sometimes we need a break from our routine or our story to clear all the voices out before we can figure out what we really want for ourselves. As entrepreneurs, it can be challenging to stick to one path, to get focused, & to not do all of the things that come our way, & this episode talks all about dealing with those things & the attachments we collect along the way.
When I met Emily, she was a pregnant woman in the jungle. When I heard her story, I was amazed! A double Aquarian like me, she spent 15 years in Venice Beach (where I lived for many years!) and followed the traditional path - working for a fortune 500 and spending 1000s of dollars on clothing and shoes. She had the picturesque life but her heart still yearned for Costa Rica - where she had spent 6 months backpacking out of college. She finally returned to the small surf town she fell in love with before, Santa Teresa, over a decade later, and ended up falling in love with a charming French surfer. Soon she returned, they had a baby & the rest is history. Listen in for more details and epic quotes like this: “It’s like if motherhood is a video game and doing it in the jungle is the hardest level.” Emily is amazing!
