Sisters working together to help make dreams come true might sound a bit crazy, but it works!
I'm sure you've heard working with family doesn't always pan out, or to be careful and keep things light, have a back up plan if things go south, etc. Well, it's been 5 amazing years and working together has actually helped deepen our bond. Growing up, we were usually at each other's throats, constantly bickering. Neither of us would have ever guessed we'd be successfully working together!
When Christina proposed the idea of starting her own surrogacy agency and wanted me to join her team, I didn't feel hesitant to support her at all. In fact, I felt excitement and knew I could help her grow her business and provide the support she needed in an ever-growing industry. I should have felt nervous, but as her big sister I've known Christina her entire life. She has one of the strongest work ethics I've ever seen and is beyond passionate about helping create families. She already made connections in the community and just needed someone she could rely on to do the computerized, background tasks needed to keep the business running.
"When I decided to start my own company, I already knew the first person I needed on my team was my sister." ~Christina
In her words, I was the person she trusted most. She knew she wouldn't have to hold my hand and walk me through the process of any given task. She considers me to be just as passionate about Dream Surrogacy as she is, and says my attention to detail and ability to teach myself things I don't know are what gives her the confidence she has in my abilities.
It wasn't what I had imagined I'd be doing with my psychology degree, but as the company has grown and I've been given more responsibility and freedom to create, I've learned just how perfect this industry (and job) is for me. Christina gives me the creative freedom to run with ideas and see if they work. She never second guesses me and has full confidence in my abilities, even if the ideas I come up with aren't exactly typical.
Office Manager & Content Creator
She knew I could write, create images and profiles, and perform managerial tasks needed. But what neither of us realized was how quickly I would take to web designing, graphic artistry, and social media marketing. I'm self taught in those areas. Writing was always a passion of mine, and when I did so creatively, I learned how to design my own websites and images to promote the material. It was fun while it lasted, but now that those same talents are being used to help create families, it makes it so much more meaningful to me.
All in all, being sisters hasn't been a setback for us professionally. It's helped us grow together, as strong willed women, in a field that allows us to help people achieve their dreams. We both grew up in a troubled family and had to make do with what we had. We both saw hardships, faced neglect, and had to heal from a very rocky past. Because of this, we are able to work together to create smiles, help others find more happiness in their lives, and foster an atmosphere of love and acceptance toward each other and those we work with no matter what obstacles we might face.
It takes heart to grow a passionate business that specializes in creating life. It takes compassion and dedication to build that business into something worthwhile. Together, we have put our hearts and souls into Dream Surrogacy. We don't just create families, we are one.
