Today’s mama does not define herself by societal conventions. . .
In fact she is a self professed swearer and un-crafty mom who is impassioned by helping women design their business and develop world class programs so they can aligned lives of their own creation.
April Beach, mom of three sons and lifelong entrepreneur, has coached entrepreneurs and mompreneurs for 22 years to develop world class programs and businesses that have changed the world.
She believes in the fire that exists within all of us and that with grit, persistence and purpose we can craft the life we want to live. April did not want to compromise her time with her family by working in a job that she felt lukewarm about so she intentionally built her business around a life of freedom, travel and family-minded activities. Like me, April isn’t a natural born cook or gardener and instead likes to fuel her life with what she feels born to do-teach, lead and coach. She admits we don’t all fit into one “mom box” and that it’s totally more than okay.
April, who literally was on her own at age 13, has owned 4 companies, written two books, created a whole new industry consulted corporations.
April has take courageous leaps and followed her heart, even when faced with situations that could’ve paralyzed her with fear. Today she is gong to share about tapping into the fire within each and every one of us. She’ll share about not seeking societal accolades, but instead deriving confidence from within. She also wisely reflects on how we shouldn’t seek perfection, but instead alignment with who we really are.
