Growing up, I was always an athlete and I've always been drawn to health and fitness! However, I always found myself stuck in boring desk jobs that did not light me up AT ALL. From a very young age I knew I was destined to help others and inspire change. I also knew I wanted a to be an entrepreneur and have a job that didn't feel like work; a career that blended my interests, and a job that I jumped out of bed each morning and got excited about! I wanted to have a presence in someone's life that sparks a ripple effect that will continue to positively impact others. I remember getting so excited thinking about creating the job I wanted but then got discouraged when I told myself that kind of job didn't exist! I found myself saying, "just suck it up and go back to your 9-5 desk job. No one you know truly likes their job so at least you're not the only one." My moto was, "another day, another dollar...just get through it and get your paycheck." Clearly, I felt stuck and miserable!
The Turning Point
Just a few months before my wedding, my father passed away suddenly at the age of 57 from a massive heart attack due to less than stellar eating habits and an insane amount of stress. That's when I decided to WAKE UP and stop playing small and finally take action and pursue my dreams and desires...I decided this was NON-NEGOTIABLE! That saying, "Life is too short" really hit home for me and I knew I needed to TAKE BACK MY LIFE! So I decided to INVEST in myself for the first time in my life and hire a personal trainer to learn about weight training and nutrition and get my body and CONFIDENCE back. Then I hired my own Life Coach to gain clarity on what my next steps should be regarding the other aspects of my life. Through experiencing this mindset work with my coach and realizing how powerful it is and how it changed MY life (Oh Lord did it change EVERY aspect of my life!), I decided that Coaching was my calling. In one of my first sessions I told my coach that I've been to several different therapists to try and heal and get "unstuck" in my life but it never helped. In just one session with my coach she made me realize that the best way I can honor my father is to stop playing small and LIVE MY LIFE the way I was always meant to- be my own boss and do what I love. I finally felt empowered enough to make that happen!
So I took a leap of faith, did my research, and enrolled in a Coaching Certification Program!
