Welcome to my newsletter! I am Ana Yokota, and I can’t wait to help you to explore creative and simple ideas for your lifestyle.
Things may seem smooth and easy for me now, but they weren’t always this way.
Despite pursuing my dream job earning top dollar as a project manager for over 8 years, I felt that there was something missing. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love executing strategy and resolving complex problems; however, I just had no work-life balance.
As I’m processing my dreams, goals, and fears with my best friend, she motivated me to brainstorm on quantifiable ways for me to accomplish those aspirations and overcome those fears. Contrary to my usual multi-paged competency frameworks, It was such powerful yet simple advice. I found it refreshing and a spark of inspiration filled my heart again.
I thought all would be magically perfect if I just reset my goals. But, that is only part of the solution. You see, you can be the most organized, efficient and effective human being, but if you don’t believe in yourself, “work-life” balance will never be a thing.
I began a new journey of discovering my self worth and inadvertently my new work-life balance gave me confidence, strength, and hope to slowly but surely help others around me experiencing the same struggles.
With the help of a dear friend who believed in me, I will never forget how I managed to start this blog, which has grown an average of 80% month over month just by sharing tips and tricks on finding creative and simple ideas for relationship building, food, faith, and so much more.
Thank you for reading my story!
Keep your eyes peeled for next week’s email, where I talk about when it all changed. See you!
