My name is Alexis Neely.
Not so long ago, I was working 6-7 days a week in an office, missing my children‘s lives, not taking care of myself and doing business in a way that simply felt, well, bad.
Even though I was making good money, I was constantly afraid of running out. I knew I wouldn‘t have enough for retirement and I was racking up debt like crazy.
It all came to a head in 2009 … by that time, I had written a best-selling book, built not just one but TWO million dollar businesses. We would do $2,000,000 in revenue that year.
I was appearing on all the top television shows (Good Morning America, Today Show, O‘Reilly Factor, On the Money and more).
And I was miserable. (I know, get out the tiny violin and start playing, right?)
I was trapped by the trappings of success. My income relied on me showing up in a way that was out of alignment with who I really was and how I wanted to be in the world.
My relationship with my kids was growing more and more disconnected. They were 7 and 10 - the ages at which I had promised myself I would stop working so much and be their mom.
But I couldn‘t stop because my businesses would crumble if I did.
