We had the good fortune of connecting with Dylan King and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dylan, is there something you believe many others might not?
The concept of Hustle Culture. At my former job, I used to have a sign posted that said, “Good things come to those who hustle.” & I was committed to that thought process! I worked fast; I worked hard. I put in long hours because I knew “eventually” I’d reap the rewards. But what actually happened is that I created a space for myself without boundaries, where I was constantly trying to prove what I deserved to everyone- mostly myself. When I run my own business, I choose not to engage with hustle culture. For me, that means honoring my energy, spending time with my daughters, and embracing my inherit worthiness. In a direct 180 from other positions I’ve held, and mistakes I made at the beginning of my business, when I respect my own energy, and value myself more than hustle culture allows room for- then I flourish.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a Spiritual Alignment & Success Coach. I work with women to create the confidence they need to become the badass God designed them to be. But before that, I was just a mom who never saw her kids, a wife with a crumbling marriage, and very, very unhappy store manager. I was actually so miserable that I created a secret Instagram account where the bio was ‘a place to be all the things I can’t in real life’. And then one day, I decided… I am done living the life I want only on an Instagram account. I’m going to make this real. & I quit my job, and started my journey.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would probably hit up a class or two at Black Swan Yoga- by far my favorite Yoga studio in the area. I always take friends & family to the Mercer Botanical Gardens as well. My favorite bit is the Shakespeare section of the Gardens.
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?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my husband, who has always believed in me and my success even when I hesitate.
