After only 6 months in my corporate job, I knew that 9-5 life was not for me.  Opening my inbox in the morning made me want to smash my face on the keyboard.  I quickly felt myself spiraling into a cube shaped depression.

So I took the biggest leap of my life and left my cushy corporate job to start my brand new business.  I was determined to exchange the dream of power heels for power yoga pants; even if it meant completely starting from scratch.

You pop open Instagram and lackadasically scroll through your feed.  Oh, how you love seeing posts from your favorite boss babes.  Their photos are scroll stopping and captions absolutely captivating.  Plus, it feels like you could sit and enjoy a bottle of wine with them for hours.

With a yearning to connect to others, you reach beyond your normal feed and boldly punch #communityovercompetition into that search bar.  You see the face of a person who looks like she could be your new best friend.  Her kind eyes and joyous smile are begging you to tap and view her post.

As you’re reading her caption, you think “wow, this gal really knows what’s up.  I feel this so much!”  Finally, someone who gets your message.  But as you keep reading, a gnawing feeling settles into your stomach.  

She’s doing exactly what I’m doing.
