Why now?

Updated: Sep 11, 2022

I have been thinking about creating an LLC for a long time. Owning your own business! In reality, it often ends in failure. It can be intimidating and scary to start something new and to take a chance, especially when you are responsible for others. The thing that gives me confidence is that I'm launching this company to help people, not to just make money. Being the voice for the "have-nots" is a passion of mine.

Loomin Solutions was created after completing a project for the nonprofit where I am CEO, HFHS. I am still in that role but the time and resources invested in something that I don't own is scary.

Self-reflection is something I do often. This occurs more now than ever. I needed to find a tangible reason to keep investing in something that could be taken away from me at any time. I decided that I would see it as the cost of education and experience.

My first time as CEO. The process of taking the reigns from someone that was in the position for 25 years and from what I inherited, lost interest many years ago. Changes and updates needed to be made in all areas of the organization. Many hours and all-nighters were spent on learning. Learning the role, learning what to prioritize, and basically "what did I get myself into?" Nonprofit org in need of everything with extremely limited resources, a board that could not be less engaged, and no playbook left behind.

Working with the "forgotten" population added to the pressure. I've been the organization leader for 9 months and have come to think of all our clients as family. Success is a must.

I'm going to use this blog as a way to track progress, brainstorm ideas, and some version of therapy. A way of downloading the stress and happenings that pile up working in a field where people are in pain, crisis, and alone. For many, this is most likely the most stressful, scary, and challenging time of their lives. I'm not going to worry about the number of posts or proper grammar. It will be however my thoughts come and will contain my progress and success mixed in with a bit of emotion and feelings.

It is fitting that I assume this first CEO role with HFHS, launch my first company, and start my first blog at this point in my life. Like the people I work for, I am trying to figure out how to make it. I have more in common with them than they know. This period of time is the most challenging and scary time in my life. Many challenges and struggles both personally and professionally are present and I've just turned 40 years old.
