#119: How I Grew My Business While Working Full Time in Corporate

City Girl Savings launched January 1st 2015, but I didn’t end up going full-time until May of 2021.

That’s nearly 6 and a half years where I was working in corporate while trying to grow this business.

As I say that, I wonder how I got it done and still found time to travel, see friends and family, and focus on my health.

It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

In this episode, I’m sharing how I grew the City Girl Savings business while working full time in corporate America.

Some things worked well, others not so much. 

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • [02:35] Raya shares how she was offered a remote job, in order to keep working for the company she was with when her father passed away.
  • [06:30] The corporate job was always top priority, because it was how the bills were being paid. Raya treated it as such.
  • [11:01] Once Raya decided she wanted to run City Girl Savings full-time, she began to act accordingly. This led to her experiencing the power of manifestation.
  • [16:32] Raya shares how she couldn’t even enjoy vacation. She discusses how she reached a point of burnout and the impact it had.
  • [22:39] Raya gets raw and real when sharing how she went about leaving a company that had been with her for nearly one-third of her life.
