Growing up, my life was not easy! There is very little that you can tell me that I have not done or heard before. From growing up in a foster home, traveling around the world, not having proper education, getting married at a very young age, being a battered wife, having kids at a young age, being a single mother, losing a child and much more…. I felt rejected by the world. I felt like a failure and a loser, I almost gave up. The only things that spurred me on was the urge I had inside me to share the lessons I’ve learned in my life, and the promise of helping people and making a difference in the world.
Over the next few years I decided to become a life coach so I studied everything I could get my hands on to learn how to create the trainings that people really wanted, and how to explain the value of what was in those programs so they would see the value and invest in them. I also had to overcome a lot of my own personal character flaws. Things like fear of rejection, perfectionism, arrogance, fear of failure, and fear of success. Let me tell you, I was a mess. But it was worth it. I learned that I could have anything I wanted, if I put my mind to it.
What I love the most about my job is getting emails and Facebook comments from people whose lives are changing because of my programs. Seriously, watching people have huge breakthroughs and total life transformations because of what I’ve shared with them is absolutely priceless!
One other thing you might be interested to know is that while I’ve made my life I’ve also invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in training and coaching for myself. I needed to learn a lot and I needed to overcome a lot of my own “stuff” in order to get where I am today. It wasn’t easy.
I had to take many leaps of faith. And in the end, if I had known how hard it was going to be when I first started, I probably never would have gone for it. But it was worth all of the tests, challenges, and failures to be able to live my life on my own terms, and watch as the world changes because of what I’m teaching.
