When I woke up the morning of October 28th, like every morning I Timmy wakes me to a kiss and says gimmy money I gotta go and Tyrece is in the shower. I got up gave him money and a hug and closed the door. I went straight to the computer and logged into the IBCLE website. I put in the number on the letter they sent and I sat there for a moment as my brain came to clarity on the blue little P next to my number. I screamed I passed! I passed! I resisted running down the street to catch my son.
On Monday I got my certificate and badge in the mail. The letter that came with it stated that I am certified for 5 years and I can write IBCLC behind my name. WOW! I updated my website with my new title.
My dream has always been to open a private practice where I can give mothers the help they need. With out a lot of politics and red tape and restrictions. Free to help moms in a way they feel comfortable and in the environment they chose.
On Tuesday I was walking down the street when I passed an office I had passed many times before. Funny thing I could not tell what this office was for. A lady stepped out as I was passing. I asked her so what does this office do? She stated they are UR Business Here a marketing company that helps to promote other businesses. Of course I went In. This is how I found my office space. I started doing some brain storming on how I could put my business together.
On Wednesday I paid for a space in the office. Needing money to get started I began a raffle and got my first appointment through a referral.
On Thursday I went to City Hall and La County Registrar-Recorders office to handle my name and license.
On Friday we planned our first class and stared working on flyers and sign age.
