Introducing Andrea – Leap and the Net Will Appear

netHello, I am Andrea Richards Scott and I’m looking forward to embarking on this journey with you.  I am the founder and director of a personal and professional development company.  I work with individuals who are dissatisfied with what they do for a living.  I help them reinvent themselves; get aligned with their values and purpose so that they can create a life and work that they truly love. I worked in Corporate America for over 20 years.  Although I had a successful career, I always knew there was more to life.  From my earliest recollection, I pictured myself as an entrepreneur.  So, I honed my skills and contributed to the company.  Then in 2004, my opportunity came disguised as adversity.  I was downsized from my job as the lead person on one of the largest accounts in the organization and given the choice to take a downgrade and continue performing at the same level or leave the company.

Struggling with that decision, I talked with my sister, who had a simple piece of advice: Leap and the Net Will Appear.” I took the ‘Leap’ and never looked back. I decided to branch out on my own.  Since that time, I have been designing my work, living my dream and helping others to Leap to Success.  I have to admit, “It’s not always easy but it’s always simple.  I have learned that God is my safety net.  There have been times of feast or famine, but God is always faithful.  I truly believe that if you do what you are called to do, you will be blessed immeasurably. I co-authored Keys to the Kingdom: A Manual for Success in Today’s World and currently I’m completing my second book entitled Purpose Quest.  My goal is to help individuals discover and live their soul’s purpose.

The Word of God says, “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.”[1] That has been my experience.  Even during economic downturn, God continues to show His favor. I believe God’s Word, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”[2] He hasn’t failed me yet! My greatest desire is to help others discover what I did:  God has a plan for our lives and no matter how difficult things get, He will never leave or forsake us.
