Starting Journify had its struggles at first which led Lamia Pardo down a road to what she refers to as professional burnout. She states, “when you become a founder you start combining your company with your personal identity, It’s very risky to not be mindful of it because you are at the early stages of your journey.” Feeling drained made her step back and realize her additional purpose and see if she wanted to proceed any further.

It was not a sign it was a struggle along the way.” Realizing this purpose gave her the drive to create an app that she sees helping many others with their self-care.
