It’s heartwarming to note that over the past month, more of you have started exploring new projects and business endeavors. What started as a little thread on quarantine-induced new businesses led to us holding a live session on starting your passions, and I’m still not over how so many of you are working towards enrichment!
As we navigate our way through these uncertain times, it’s important to remember that we shouldn’t stop at just empowering ourselves - we need to uplift other people, too.
“The end of all knowledge should be service to others.”
— Cesar Chavez
It would be a dream come true if the world transformed on its own, but let’s face it: a better world is on us. And we need to propel more people towards economic and educational success in order to get there.
I’ve previously mentioned that I was once a single parent, struggling to make ends meet while trying to improve on my skills. Everything I do at Ellana now stems from a deep desire to support others and provide what I and other single parents didn’t have: a support system, a listening ear, a way to grow without compromising the needs of family.
I believe that by empowering individuals, resolving conflict, and promoting equality, we can ensure a more harmonious environment for ourselves as well as future generations.
After all, the future is only as bright as we make it to be.
What are some ways you’ve started pitching in for the sake of empowering your community? I’d love to hear how your new businesses or services are paving the way for others to grow and do more!
