✨Freedom✨

Years ago, my friend Doug Smith planted the freedom seed within me. Over a decade ago he was making moves to be able to work from anywhere with his business True Nutrition . This inspired me. About five years ago, I also began moving toward that type of occupational freedom. I wanted to be able to work from anywhere and to be with those I love, to travel freely and not be tied to just one spot. 

Now I have that freedom. I can be anywhere in the world, do what I love and contribute. I work every day and a few times a week, I wash my hair, throw it in rollers and plug away just like this. This is what I look like behind the scenes.  I work from my bed when I'm home because my cat Jack will climb all over me if I work from a desk. So I brought the desk to the bed. He lays on my lap or beside me and I work away. I love it! Plus, the bed is where I get all my good ideas 💕

Last year I was able to pack myself and Jack up and help my family. While my mother was in the hospital, I was able to be with her and not think about an office I would have to get back to. Being with her during that time, and then having that freedom in the first few months of mourning her, was such a blessing. So many people don't have that luxury to really dig deep into their grief. I remember getting off the phone with a new client and then bursting into tears. I was alone with my cat.  I could break down completely, then slowly put myself back together and go back to work when I felt ready to. 

My office is always with me. In the coming months I'll be moving back to San Diego, but I’ll always have time for Nantucket. People ask, "what will you do out there?". 

And my reply, "Same thing I'm doing now"! 

Working from anywhere does have its challenges. I wake up and I start working. This isn't so much a challenge per se because I love what I do, but the boundaries are not quite clear. There are also days I'm not motivated and if you work from home or have your own business you need to stay motivated. No one is going to cover me or do the work for me. I am 100% responsible. Freedom is precious.💕

One of my gigs that allows me to work from anywhere is with a great company called @tawkify. I'm a matchmaker with them. If you're interested in learning more about being a matchmaker, direct message me and we can chat. If you're into love and helping people, this will be perfect for you! 

I have spaces left for The Love School Feedback group. You'll have access to The Love School for life as well as a bunch of great goodies! Email me if you're interested dorothy@dorothydstover.com

LoveBlog - How to Rise with Love

Falling in love on the surface sounds absolutely wonderful doesn’t it!  Below, at the root of what it means to fall in love, essentially means to fall.  What happens when we fall?  We get hurt.  There is no way to not get hurt.  Even if you avoid people all together, you’ll still end up hurting because all humans need love and connection.  It’s a basic need.  So if one of your basic needs are not being met in some way, shape or form, you’ll hurt on some level.  I want you to love.  If falling in love is your game then do it.  Today I would like to offer an alternative, to rise with love.  To always remember to come from a place of love. I can’t say you won’t get hurt but you will feel better about your relationships with all people and how you are within the world.  I am putting myself out there a little more and have decided to start a YouTube Channel.  Here is the first episode of Love Lessons, How to not fall in love but to rise with love.  I hope you like it!  Now my channel is a baby channel.  This is my first video. So if you like it, please let me know.  If there’s something you think I can improve upon, please let me know.  It will really help me become my best self and hopefully help others with love within themselves and their lives.  I will have videos out every Tuesday.  (I’ve already recorded and edited the next three and plan on keeping this schedule and being consistent.)
