Starting your own business is akin to parenthood. It entails lots of work and persistence. Development takes time and repetition. Patience is required. You often experience growing pains and you’re always just doing the best you can.
In the third post of Pippin’s Inspired Life series, I share my growth from designing spec homes to spectacular custom designs and eventually birthing into the world a business predicated on passion and inspiration.
Have you ever noticed how life takes you on a wild ride even when you’re certain you’re on the right path? It can almost feel like being tested to see if you’re really serious. And even though there are challenges along the way, there are also moments of pure elation and a depth of inspiration that floods your entire being, reinforcing the notion that you are, in fact, exactly where you’re meant to be.
Who is this woman that will be alchemizing your hard-earned money into the home of your dreams?
Does she listen to your wants, needs, and desires?
How can you trust that she’s the right person for the job?
These are questions all my clients are asking themselves. And rightly so! I encourage everyone to do their research and get to know the person who will be so involved with the transformation of their lives and their home.
Let’s be honest, there are likely aspects of your home that literally make your life harder.
You may love your home, yet the obstacles it presents need to change if you plan to live there for many more years.
Or perhaps you’ve grown so accustomed to these challenges that you don’t even realize the impact it’s having on your life.
So, your homelife is changing. The kids have left the nest and now the nest feels overwhelmingly large. Or perhaps you’re needing to welcome an aging parent into your home to provide in-home caregiving. Whether you celebrate this transition in life or not, changes this big often feel uncomfortable or overwhelming.
Finding inspiration for the way you want to live your life can help you embrace uncomfortable shifts with grace.
Let’s be honest. Life changes as you grow and often that means outgrowing your home. In order for your home to continue supporting you and inspiring the life you intend to live; some changes need to be made.
Yet sometimes it’s hard to envision how the home you’ve been living in could EVER meet your current or future needs and desires. When the only thing your home is inspiring you to do is get a bulldozer and level it, we’re here with fresh eyes to help create more options for you.
Do you have a beautiful plot of land where you’re planning to build your next home, yet you’ve been told the property would be difficult to build on?
Though this may seem daunting at first, don’t let it stop you in your tracks.
With a little research and the right team you CAN design and build the home of your dreams regardless of the challenges that may exist.
Do you want your home to represent who you are at your core?
Customizing your home requires getting to know what makes YOU unique!
As part of our YOU-Inspired Discovery Process we, at Pippin Home Designs, learn what you’re passionate about, what your dreams are, and how you want to live into your future.
What would your life look like if you designed it around PLAY? Do you even remember how to play anymore? When was the last time you really cut loose and switched your professional pants for silly shorts? Or have you become too serious and grown up to play?
George Bernard Shaw reminds us “we don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing”.
You know that feeling of something frustrating in your home that you’ve had to put up with for years. Maybe your dishwasher doesn’t work properly, or there isn’t enough space in your laundry room, or the screen door never gets fixed. Think about how these frustrations have impacted your everyday life.
Now think about what your life would be like if instead of frustration you had LOVE!
Love and Happiness can intentionally be designed into your home!
I am Jenny Pippin, founder of Pippin Home Designs and creator of my own inspired living. I grew up as an ordinary southern girl, working in the fields of my family’s tobacco farm. It didn’t take me long to realize I had greater gifts and so I chose to step into my power and create my own path in life, inspired by my heart’s true passion.
