I’ve known Ape since middle school! We used to hang out and get in trouble together. We’ve come together and fallen apart multiple times, but never far enough that we aren’t still friends. Social media has been a huge help for us, keeping us connected. If it weren’t for Facebook, I would have never been able to bring you her story! Here’s what’s going on in April’s life…
Gosh, I’m not exactly sure where to start,
Maybe for the last year or so I’ve really been thinking about what I am meant to do, obviously being a mom was a given. Haha. But something was just missing after I had my youngest son I really started to get some PPD and I happened to run into the chance to get my tarot cards read, so of course, I did.
Cards kept coming up with regards to finding my passion outside of me and within me.
I thought about this for days figuring out what exactly IS my passion, what am I good at? How do I keep a fire lit on my passion if I am unsure of it, later on I run into a soap making kit at the store, being a stay at home mom I was willing to give just about anything a try with the amount of time on my hands, I got home whipped up my first soaps and have been obsessed ever since, all I can think about is what’s next what flavors what style, I even dream about it because I exhaust my mind with it all day, I decided one day maybe I could make a little bit of money from them and started to sell them.
Starting your own business is one of the most challenging things you can do
It makes you vulnerable and opens your eyes. The hard parts are where you see that the people closest to you can be the ones who don’t support you. But regardless you have to push forward, even if it’s alone. It definitely gives me a better sense of self and those who are really on my team as I create lovely hand soaps for all my lovely supporters. It’s important to find your passion, try something you have never done before and fight for your dreams don’t get lost in a “normal life”. I put a lot into this, and I am finally seeing my hard work pay off. I’m proud. I’m proud that I had it in me to do all of this while being driven crazy by a 5-year-old and a 5-month-old all at the same time. Passion is everything, find it.But regardless you have to push forward, even if it's alone. -April Coleby Click To Tweet
