She was kind enough to share some of her story with me to share with all of you.

What was your ‘Ever After’ moment? (The moment that changed everything)

I started my online math tutoring business earlier this year. I used to work for tutoring companies before but I decided to try things on my own this time. It is true that entrepreneurship is character building. I discovered a lot of things about myself that I did not know before. Doing the inner work was difficult and uncomfortable but it was something I needed to grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur. Commitment, focus and patience were the areas that I’ve struggled with at first but by doing consistent work, things are becoming easier now.

What is a challenge that you have have faced and how did you overcome it? What did you learn along the way?

I struggled to set boundaries at the start of my business endeavor. I did not strictly implement my boundaries with my clients, with my family and even with myself. It resulted in resentment and burnout. I learned to set my priorities straight and to communicate effectively to the people around me. As a people pleaser, this is something difficult to do but by being more confident, I know I am being better.

What is a practical strategy or tool that you have found most effective for achieving success and/or personal growth?

Being consistent is necessary for growth and improvement. Whether putting myself out there for my business or spending more time reading the Word of God, I always push myself to stick to my goals. It’s not always easy but we need to persevere and endure if we want to be better at something.

How do you deal with self-doubt and limiting beliefs? What practices have you found helpful for building self-confidence?

As a perfectionist, I deal with a lot of insecurities. Irrational thoughts and fears keep coming in my mind, bringing my self-confidence down sometimes. I’ve tried doing the strategies and tips the internet gurus are recommending but what works the best for me is talking to myself in a kind manner. I encourage myself by acknowledging the efforts I put into my work and by continuously reminding myself that I am worthy of peace, success and abundance. It’s difficult to give myself grace sometimes but I know I need to be patient and things will fall right where they belong.

What advice do you have for staying resilient in the face of adversity? How do you maintain a growth mindset and learn from failures?

I am a Catholic and through time, I learned to offer my thoughts, feelings, and circumstances to the Lord. I believe that God is in control and all I need is to have faith that He will deliver me from the challenges and difficulties. This is easier said than done and I still struggle to commit everything to Him sometimes. But I am certain that God is faithful and He will always be with me on this journey.

What are some common misconceptions people have about your area of expertise, and what would you like people to know?

A lot of my students struggle in Math today because they don’t have mastery over the arithmetic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. To achieve academic success, it is vital for students to do these operations without the aid of a calculator. I understand that we have a more modern curriculum now but Math is a cumulative subject. A student should be proficient in the basics first before he can understand the more complex Math concepts.
