When I started this journey I was very nervous, well to be honest I was "scared". I didn't know how things were going to turn out, I wondered if I would be able to pay all of my bills by teaching sewing. I encountered some naysayers along the way. But my "FRIENDS" kept encouraging me, they told me to pray about it, they told me they had confidence in me and they know everything will workout in the end.
There were times when I did apply for jobs back in the Corporate World but I never got hired. After each interview, I would receive a telephone about a sewing opportunity. I KNEW that was GOD talking to me. He was telling me to TRUST HIM. So, that's what I did. TRUST HIM!!!! I started looking for sewing opportunities.
I contacted several Community Centers in Prince George's County where I was already working as a part-time employee teaching sewing. Several community centers were in need of a sewing instructor, so they hired me (to my advantage I was already in their system). I'm also an Adjunct Professor at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM). I contacted the Administrator at CSM to see if I can teach more classes. They told me "yes" and added more classes to my schedule. I also started advertising that I would be teaching sewing in my home as well....the response was GREAT!
About a week later, I received a telephone call letting me know the response was good. At the beginning of our conversation, we started off with me teaching one day a week for 5 weeks for a few hours, the response was so great, I was asked to teach two days a week AND to teach on a continuous basis. I was asked to write a contract to be an Independent Contractor. I'm soo excited to have this opportunity.
GOD is opening doors for me. Just think if I had not gone into that Boutique, I would not have been given this opportunity. I believe things happen for a reason and there was a reason why I was determined to find that Boutique the second day.
One of my girlfriends gave me a T-Shirt for my birthday that says "WON'T HE DO IT".
