I don't think I have ever been more excited for anything in all of my LIFE!
WE ARE MOVIN IN YALL!!!!
The bank called this morning and said that the minute the inspector passes us, we can move in the SAME DAY!!!!! I AM SO FREAKIN STOKED!
This has been the most stressful two years of my life! Not just building but SO MANY things have happened behind the scenes. My job, my employees, my family stuff, and this house building process! I had to sue someone which is the WORST thing to be a part of! No one wants to have to pay attorneys to fight for you when you have been wronged but I finally stood up for myself and I refuse to back down! Some days, I wanted to throw in the towel because all of this gets so heavy & I have a huge company to run but because of YOU ALL, I keep going! I cannot tell you how incredible this Kiki LaRue community has been through all of this! I stepped back from my company for most of the last 2 years, had to let go of some top tier staff that broke my heart but I know it was what was best for me and my new boundary creating self! Imagine building your dream home from NOTHING, and then having to rebuild your business from scratch while you are at it! There is a reason I'm not on that INC. list and I have no problem admitting that I have built this business from the ground up THREE times! I learn more each time. Because I have no formal training and I never expected my company to grow so big! And honey, mama is all about a challenge so I rebuild if I have to, a little less each time.
I had to though. I would not be where I am now without setting the boundaries I did. And many of YOU were responsible for helping me! It sounds so crazy to say but I went to Utah and had an epiphany last year! I had a meet up and 28 women came who I MET ON THE INTERNET & they had followed me for years! It was so refreshing to be around people who had an outside perspective but had been around long enough to see what was going on! Not only were they rooting for me but they knew I needed to make some huge changes in my career and in my personal life (because y'all know I share all of it) and they sure did wake me up! One friend sat me down and said, "Becka, if you don't start sticking up for BECKA, you will never get where you want to be because everyone will always know they can walk all over you!" And it was SO HARD! Oh my gosh, so hard. I love people and I genuinely believe that everyone is good. And sometimes, they weren't. With this house and with Kiki LaRue!
But here we are! I am DONE! I did it! I didn't get help from ANYONE other than these incredible humans I have on my staff who love this brand and me and my family like their own! And they know I will move MOUNTAINS for them! I had no clue what I was doing, or if I was making the right choice but I didn't look at a single negative comment. I filtered every comment and email and stayed in my boundary bubble and KEPT ON SWIMMING!
Y'all. I can't thank you enough. For listening to me cry on social media. For waking me up. For rooting me on. Oh my gosh, Im about to ruin my makeup right now.
YALL WE DID IT! WE DID! YOU AND ME! SOCIAL MEDIA JUST HELPED THIS GIRL BUILD HER DREAM HOME!
oh and for the skeptics, tomorrow, when I get my keys, I'll also have more than $1.1 MILLION DOLLARS in EQUITY!
Because my Daddy didn't raise no fool, never live beyond your means!
I AM SO PROUD OF US! You, me and MY GOD SEND of a husband!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I swear to you, I will never ever let this get to my head. I will ALWAYS influence for good and I will ALWAYS be your cheerleader. WE did this. And I can never say thank you enough!
P.S. you can always follow along with my house journey here.
