In digging deep, I decided to do the courageous thing, despite my fears, (and the nay-saying comments of others), leave the corporate world, and follow my calling to pursue a graduate degree in Marine Mammal Biology.
This degree took me to Hong Kong, where I met a women who ran a successful business, designed her life exactly how she wanted it to be, and was the example of feminine grace, joy, and warmth.
Meeting her, and subsequently several others who were similarly overjoyed about their career, highly financially successful, and free in all the ways that matter, I realized that I didn't need to be like my dad to be successful, and that I could forge my own path to define my version of success!
I realized that I could be young and free, making millions doing what I loved, just like they had. I immersed myself in personal development with a plan to become a success on my terms.
I discovered masterminds which could show me the tools and strategies I needed to start generating revenue.
But then, it took awhile before I realized that I got stuck in the masculine, aggressive way to grow. Again, I was ambitious with big dreams, wanted to grow fast, and hired a mentor who I thought would help me do that. But then I realized a mentor was not going to do the work that I truly needed to do.
Only I could define how I wanted to experience business, growth, and ultimately, myself.
Finally, I found the balance between generating revenue and fully being myself. My feminine, self-expressed, FREE, warm, joyful self. I reached a point where I was generating $40k+ per month without betraying who I am and compromising the life I want to live.
Since then, I've coached more than 3,000 people and helped them increase their revenue by more than $5.5 million.
Now, I only work for about 3 weeks each month (I take the last week, or 2 weeks if it's a 5 week month, off) and create the space to take my entire birthday month off every year.
I am also driven to give philanthropically, so I choose to allocate resources to donate to O.U.R. and ISA Foundation to save lives and support those who really need our help.
