What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
This can be quite a long story! But in a nutshell, what made me the awesome self I am today began with my decision to live for myself first and drop the habits that were holding me hostage so that I could live free. And when I say live free, I mean free from all negative attachments, impulsive actions, and people-pleasing codependency! Today I am able to receive the gifts in all experiences. I am capable of embracing every difficult situation. I am strong enough to sit in and move through traumatic experiences.
What message do you promote?
Everyone deserves to live free. This is your life too; it can look, feel, be, any way you want it to.
In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?
People who engage in the standard practices of breaking bad habits have no idea what it really takes to do so. They don't know that you must condition a new way of responding in place of the reactionary action they want to remove. Furthermore, they have been told they can make any habit change, but they aren't told how long it will take to make it stick. That is what I teach! I coach adults who are tired of being held hostage by their habits. At my Life Coaching practice Turning Leaves, the Learn to Live Free system dives into training modules, podcast-style skillset episodes, and confidential community group collaboration. That helps them reign in the impulsivity, drop their habits, and feel how they want to feel every day through persuasive tactics. And in doing so, they realize they can attain any aspiration worth dreaming of. So, I am a Life Recovery Coach, a mentor, and I'm a public speaker.
In business and/or in life, share a struggle you overcame that other women can relate to
To give you a little background, in the first half of my life; I had experienced numerous sexual traumas and assaults, domestic violence, emotional abuse, poor adult and peer modeling, too much senseless death, near-death experiences myself, body dysmorphia, anxiety, depression, Panic, fear, social isolation, and of course I can't leave out the resulting eating disorders, chemical dependency, and a myriad of process addictions such as impulsive shopping, people-pleasing codependency, and perfectionism.
Currently, I live with multiple autoimmune disorders that I embrace every day.
In business, my industry specifically, I have had to overcome imposter syndrome, be seen as a competitor, or unnecessary by the addiction treatment facilities I desired to help. They considered my proven to be an effective treatment transition to life methods was an assertive continuum of care.
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
Helping people create a life long, manageable, and maintainable way of living in the light they wish to see themselves in, free from negative attachments.
How do you SHOW UP?
I am consistent. I walk the walk and live what I teach. I am transparent, open, and honest.
If you could give one piece of advice for women who are entering the workforce or launching their own business what would that be?
Know your why. Believe in what you do/offer. Be yourself. Let your morals and ethics lead the way!!! Don't put the profit on the face of your consumer (well within reason)
