Imagine waking up one day to have your dream destroyed by someone else.
It happened to me.
My name is Rose, In 2015 I started my dream company. From the literal ground up, we started from a local women’s bootcamp and cooking for others. I created a meal prepping company that served clients across the nation. I had locations in two states, 70 employees, and was generating a million dollars a year in sales. I was living my dream of being an entrepreneur that aligned with my passion of fitness and health.
Then in 2020, I went to bed living my dream and then woke up the next day to discover my CFO and business partner embezzled over $2M from my company and stole everything I had. Someone I trusted took everything from me and left me to pick up the pieces. As I dug deeper and deeper into what happened I began to see that my company had been dealt a financial blow and mental trauma to everyone too big to recover from. I realized that everything I had worked for was too far out of my reach to continue as an owner and operator. I knew that I had to shut down my business that so many people gave up their dreams who believed in mine. When humans experience trauma or severe life stressors it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel.
It hit me hard. The blow life had just dealt to me was so much that it dropped me to the mat. As I was laying there, thinking about what I had lost, wondering what I could have done differently, I realized that I was not done. That there was still fight left in me and that I was not done finding my way to achieve my dreams. I wanted to do something to make the world a better place, to make a difference where people could physically and mentally love themselves more, including myself. I fought and went back to work 3 days after losing everything. Crying through each day, with the help of family and friends I was scooping Twisted Dough.
