We revisited one of our original reflection story interviewees, a dear friend and a favorite client, Julie. When we interviewed Julie several years ago, she spoke about her personal commitment to Clarity, Truth, and Voice. In the midst of transition then, Julie again found herself recently passing through another unexpected transition.
Julie’s reflection story revisited shows us that although life may present you with unexpected changes and challenges, it’s possible to keep yourself grounded through your personal truths. For Julie, much has changed over the years since our first interview, but her personal commitment to clarity, truth, and voice has not changed.
What did you want to see reflected?
Claudia and I, and our other soul sister entrepreneur, Marta Ferro, have been dreaming out loud together for almost two decades. As I was about to launch my tech startup, Bettyvision, Claudia asked me to think of the three words that I wanted to guide my way. “Truth, Clarity, and Voice,” I replied. To my delight, Claudia surprised me with gorgeous rings, each reflecting back my chosen words!
What was going on in your life that prompted you to need this reminder?
My startup was all about turning your dreams into reality with the support of a community that believes in limitless possibilities. Of course, we all teach what we most need to learn, which is why I’ve been creating vision boards since my early 20’s. It’s been my experience, personally and with those whom I work, that if we aren’t clear with ourselves, we end up manifesting a life we aren’t that jazzed about. When we dig deep enough to hear our inner truth, and then courageously follow it up by giving our dreams a voice…magic happens!
