What inspired you to start your company?
The growing awareness of a need for multi-dimensional self-care, one that addresses the complexity of the human frame from emotional to social.
How is The Resiliency Club making a difference?
My company is providing encouraging peer to peer support (not social debate) and unique self care ideas across a holistic scope of emotional, mental, physical, social and spiritual dimensions provided through an easy to use app. This is a flagship product under the umbrella of a mental health club subscription.
What are some of the challenges you have faced?
Complexities of creating a product that provides a space which moves beyond labels and limitations. A space that defines winning as lifting someone else up, not having the last word in a political or religious debate. A space which recognizes the richness of culture, gender and background while balancing this with one that is spiritually sound, easy to use and yet rich in content. However, I would also say that has been the richness of my journey as I build new relationships and remain teachable along the way. I have a heart full of gratitude for those who have provided their wisdom, opinion and guidance during this project.
What is your biggest win?
Award Winner of 2021 Technology and Innovative Solutions
Who is your role model?
My Husband. His ability to see people for who they only wish they were. He’s a constant inspiration to me. He makes everyone around him a better version of themselves, including me.
What do you wish you had known before starting your company?
It will never be perfect but that doesn’t mean it won’t help someone out there!
What is your CEO superpower?
Prayer and the 2 biproducts of tenacity and teach-ability, or not knowing. Ideas come that I wouldn’t have ever dreamed of (such as turning a journal into an app to help others) and impediments are overcome instead of stifled by fear that is so characteristic of our human experience.
Anything else you want people to know?
I have known serious loss, fear, illness, debt, and a myriad of broken dreams. Sometimes we have to “believe to see” instead of the other way around. Life moves quickly. Don’t let yesterday steal tomorrow. Hope that emerges from believing beyond our selves is the kind of hope that finds a way where there seems to be no way.
