Bee joined Mario on 10 Minute Mindset to tell her story of leaving the corporate sector to start her own publishing company that she successfully built into a 7-figure plus endeavor. The only problem was that she realized that she created monetary success, but still didn't find the happiness she desired. She then left the publishing world and started her coaching company that empowers women to find both monetary success and happiness in the process. Bee is the founder of Manifesting Squad, teaching women to manifest money and abundance into their lives. She has helped numerous clients to break through their manifestation blocks and supercharge their manifesting power. She has created a business that she is passionate about, a life full of freedom, abundance, and happiness. For a long time Bee felt trapped and unhappy with her life. She was unhappy, felt stuck in a job she did not enjoy, trying to make ends meet, making money, losing money, and feeling lonely as her dreams just did not seem to work out for her. She wondered why the Law of Attraction was working so well for others but did not work for her. So she dove deep to figure it out and unlocked the secret of true Super Manifestation. Now she shares her wisdom and helps other women to turn into Super Manifestors! Connect with Bee at ManifestingSquad.com and follow her on Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest.
