I am so glad you are here.Grab a cup of tea and pull up a chair because boy do I have a story for you.
I chose the path that a lot of you have chosen – to employ myself so that I had flexibility in my schedule (hello toddler at home!), financial freedom (cuz a girl loves to travel) and most importantly my SOUL was screaming at me to do work that has a positive impact on people’s lives? Sound familiar?
Here is where it all went south – I became a serial i’m-not-enough, i-need-to-do-all-the-things, as well as every-coaching-program kind of “entrepreneur”. I was overwhelmed, getting no where fast and on top of it I was burnt out and completely lost sight of all that juicy health knowledge I just spent my savings on.
I CRAVED a successful business but all the noise out there in social media land was causing me severe FOMO paired with a large dose of paralyzing fear.
Plus as a side hustler myself, I was quickly running out of time, burning the candle at both ends and was beginning to fear that something had got to give (yuck that felt constricting).
On one hand, the message blasted at me from my mentors and peers was that I had to leave my J-O-B in order to successfully rock my coaching business. I’m sure you’ve probably heard that, too. But it never felt good to me.
I did NOT want to jump off a cliff and hope my wings would grow on the way down.
Free falling was definitely not a feeling I desired.
It was at this point I decided to do things differently. My way. What would feel right to me was deciding to do both on my own terms. I decided to create a way to take the stairs instead of free falling off the cliff. What felt good was setting the foundation, taking it step-by-step, growing at a comfortable pace without burn out, and guess what? It didn’t have to be an either/or for me, it was actually both.
I got to create a balanced approach to my life and business without sacrificing my lifestyle, heath, or sanity on this journey.
Now that felt liberating and expansive.
So, how do you feel?
What if by discovering how you want to feel in all areas of your life and business it opened up the possibility to always being on the right path.
YOUR PATH. YOUR WAY. Fulfilling YOUR PURPOSE.
Because knowing how you want to feel is the most potent form of clarity you can have.
Rather than jumping off a cliff with your side hustle, I help you intuitively build a strategy and action plan that can show you the stairs to success (because it is not only safer, it is saner)
Doesn’t that sound lovely?
I believe freedom isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey. And I want you to feel free Every. Single. Day.
