Here's how it all began...
Lumiera Solutions started as a way for me to earn a living while being home more with my family, which evolved into a dream I didn’t know I had. I have always loved the idea of helping people, am a natural problem solver, have experience providing administrative support, so why not put these pieces together and start my own online business.
For 15 years, I worked at Stratford General Hospital in the Diabetes Outpatient Program, Intensive Care Unit, Imaging Department and Post Surgical Unit. While off on medical leave recovering from a car accident, I was given a chance to take a look at my life and figure out what I actually wanted. To figure out what lights my soul on fire, and it wasn't what I was doing.
How often are we given the chance to sort life out (interruption-free), so we can figure out our dreams?
During my recovery, which took about 3.5 years, I became really intrigued by mindset and started on a journey to personal development. I was forever changed and knew that I wasn’t willing to go back to the way my life was before the accident.
When the time came to start thinking about returning to work, I wanted to choose a more meaningful life… for me and my family. One that I would find purpose and inspiration from and that would light my freakin' soul on fire every day!
So, I started helping clients online as a Virtual Assistant and quickly realized that my need to learn all the things helped me gain the knowledge to become a Systems Strategist. I absolutely love helping my clients figure out how to better manage their businesses. The relief when things aren't so overwhelming and that they are able to enjoy their businesses again... that's what fires me up!
The best part is that I get to do this while making my own hours, being able to take my kids to hockey tournaments, and doctor's appointments and to be able to have coffee with a friend during the day... I love my job!!
So, let me be the reason that you can stop and smell the roses in your business, spend an extra 20 guilt-free minutes snuggling your kidlets goodnight, or set a no-work rule for the weekend so you can enjoy the life you have busted your ass to have.
