In this episode, Marlena shares a bit about her journey as an entrepreneur and finding her way into a very underserved market. She also shares about her lessons in learning to trust God and follow His leading. Sometimes we think we know better, but God always has big plans for us, and great things will happen when we lean in to our calling.

Marlena tells us a bit about what it was like to leave her 9-5 job to go full time as an author, including some of the prep and mindset shifts that had to happen for the transition to be successful.

Let’s be honest, we all struggle with listening to God’s leanings and not just going on our own merry way thinking we know best. Today’s episode will inspire you to open your heart and mind to God’s plans so that you can find your calling, serve the right people, and be fulfilled in the work you’re doing.
