We had the good fortune of connecting with Charde Namaste and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Charde, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
Fortune favors the bold.
When I first thought about creating my own business, this quote was the extra push I needed to pursue my dream of having my own wellness business. The doubt, fear, and worry was building up in my mind and I just wanted confirmation that this was what I should do. I wanted a sign or for someone to tell me I was making the right decision. Then I realized my desire was the sign and the only way I would know what would happen in the future would be to create it boldly. Staying in my head and over-thinking wouldn’t make my dreams appear. Boldly stepping out and taking a chance would and that is where fortune had a chance to find me. Not necessarily fortune in the form of monetary value, but the fortune I would feel from overcoming my own limiting beliefs.
The same works for you! If you have a dream or goal and are waiting for confirmation or the right sign– your desire is the sign! Fortune favors the bold, go out and achieve it!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I connect with people through practices in wellness as a means to become better. Getting to this place has not been easy, but has also been the easiest thing I could do– I’ll explain. The hardwork and dedication it takes to run a small business is unlike anything I’ve ever had to do and constantly keeps me thinking yet, this is exactly how I want to be spending my time so doing the work is enjoyable and has a sense of ease. I’ve learned that when faced with the opportunity to take a chance on myself, I should always do it!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love being outdoors, so visiting the park, walking paths, and being out by the water are some of my favorite things. One of my favorite days started with a green smoothie from Juiceland followed by a walk through Whit Rock Lake. From there having Ethiopian food at Yenat Guada before walking around the Dallas Museum of Art made the day special!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My yoga instructors before I became a yoga teacher were constant motivators in my life. They would encourage me to do physical poses and postures that I didn’t think I could do before. Just doing physical movements helped me recognize that I could model that same example on my personal life.
