What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
Let me tell you how, in my desperate search for my life purpose, I was missing the entire purpose of life.
I grew up very poor in Russia, often eating only potatoes and onions.
When I was 6, I stole money from my parents. I happily hid the money behind the closet, thinking that I would save it, so by the time I grew up, the money would magically multiply, and I would help my family buy a house and get out of poverty...
My dream broke into pieces when my mom caught me. I felt so embarrassed and ashamed.
At this moment, I decided, “I HAVE to make my own money.”
So, I started to work hard ever since I was 14.
By the time I was 24 yrs old, I was living an extravagant life. I worked for a billionaire. I managed his schedule and created systems in the company. I earned six figures and lived in Manhattan. I bought a restaurant, two grocery stores, and a house for my parents.
I made it! I finally achieved my dream. I finally achieved the “American Dream,” but it turned out to be somebody else's dream. PAUSE
I was traveling globally but belonged nowhere. I lost myself in my career, and I found myself at the top of a mountain that I thought I was supposed to claim. And slowly, I realized there was no mountain...
I was burned out, unfulfilled, and miserable.
I started to suffer from depression...
I realized nothing worked because I was OFF my purpose.
I quit my job to find MY life purpose. I still struggled with depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
Unemployed and lonely, my deep dark depression lasted about a year.
I was sleeping 14-16 hours a day on my beige sofa. I sat in my New York City apartment for a solid month and gained weight. My inner voice was making me feel even worse.
I was in a rock bottom moment when I decided to change my life, truly reinvent myself, and live my life differently.
Having worked with billionaires, I now know what makes people either productive or unproductive.
Working behind the scenes and seeing highly successful people's habits, I learned how to do business efficiently.
I started my journey by focusing on ONE day at the time. One to-do list. One task.
And I realized I needed to change everything!
My career, environment, friends, habits, thoughts - all of it.
So, I did.
I moved to Los Angeles and focused on healing my soul.
I have acquired so many amazing tools that I have learned as part of my journeys, such as becoming a holistic health coach, brain-body kinesiology certified master, focusing on business, marketing, cosmo energy healing, and other fancy words.
But ONE tool really changed my life.
I learned how to manage my time and energy as a woman very well. I can run a profitable business, NOT the business of busyness.
Sharing my experiences and the lessons I learned, is the purpose I knew I was destined to find.
Today I have four successful businesses. Three of which I am an investor, I started myself called “Purpose Full Day.” I started “Purpose Full Day” because I truly believe that each day is another life we get to create. You have this chance to start over again Every Single Day.
What message do you promote?
Bravery - be courageous, be contagious.
We all have a purpose, a mission, a passion. Call it whatever you want.
It all starts with daily actions. Intentional daily actions are detrimental to your success.
Master the purpose of your day today, and your life will automatically become purposeful.
Ask yourself: How can you understand your life purpose if you don’t know your purpose for today?
Time is only a resource that we can’t buy back.
And it’s hurting me to see how people waste their time, not even on purpose, but because we are wired that way, thanks to social norms that we didn’t have a chance to choose when growing up. Unlike the day and year, the week is an artificial rhythm totally man-made, independent of any natural periodicity.
The 7 days a week is wrong for us, energetic beings, who are naturally trying to fit in.
Why do so many people struggle in 9 to 5, 5 day work weeks?
Why do so many people start to be entrepreneurs and want to control their own schedules?
Most people are completely unaware of the powerful 9-day cycle that is actually meant to be how we live. That is how Purpose FULL Calendar System™ was born. It’s a science-based system that centers around a 9-day cycle that can dictate anything you do based on your birthday.
When I say that people think they are going to work 2 days more, but that is not the case. You actually have more balance and freedom to express your creativity.
At the bottom will be the link to grab a guide where I share a description of all 9 days.
I love using all my experiences to help others shift from running a business of busyness to an aligned business that flows.
My purpose is to be an agent for change; guiding people in creating their best life routine, supporting them in taking daily action, fulfilling their mission, and making money doing what you love.
In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?
Most of my influence comes from social media. I pursued public speaking this year and virtual summits. I’ve done 2 of my own and now, consistently speaking as a guest on others. Podcasts are fun, and I’m launching my own later this summer.
I share some insider information and the latest updates with my email list monthly.
When the pandemic slows down, I plan to create a local group in LA, where I live, to share physical presence and energy with each other. To share the latest tips and support on challenges.
This is what leads us to the next question.
In business and/or in life, share a struggle you overcame that other women can relate to.
I did have many struggles. Where do I begin? Being so codependent, raped, mentally abused, being addicted, procrastination, fear of rejection, fear of failure, and I can go on and on. I bet just like every woman in here.
For example, one of them was allowing my ex-husband to tell me who I am, what I should do, and what I should believe in; instead of taking my own stand and following my heart. My mistake.
And abuse here is actually abusing myself more than anybody else. When I was coping with reality with drugs or food, and all this starts with your thoughts. This is worse than anything on this list.
Because if you allow bad situations to happen with you, it’s only for a moment or minutes or maybe an hour. When somebody tells you something that is not pleasant or not true. Right?
But when you are abusing yourself, it’s not one day. It’s non stop.
I allowed my mind to win when I was thinking of those destroying thoughts like:
I'm good enough to do this and this. What if they are going to judge me? I'm going to say something wrong and embarrass myself? Then I’m not going to look good?
Can you relate? And It’s has been impacting my whole life.
Thoughts become things.
Don’t negotiate with your mind! The best lesson I learned.
When you decide to do something, just do it.
You get to decide what you want to think. Align that with what you are saying, and take action. Small Daily Actions. Or big! That is integrity - That is Alignment. And you will overcome struggles easier.
How do you SHOW UP?
I’m a confident, authentic, and loving woman at 10 AM.
Listened, appreciated, and connected at 3 PM.
Fulfilled, energetic, and on purpose at 7 PM.
Those are my 3 daily alarms to remind myself how I want to feel and show up in the world.
I have another one with a few powerful questions; ask me on any social media directly if you are curious, and I will share. =)
If you could give one piece of advice for women who are entering the workforce or launching their own business what would that be?
Take daily actions. EVERYDAY girl. Big or small, it doesn’t matter. When you decide to become an entrepreneur, you get to embody the identity of a “Leader.” And Leaders don’t hide! Leaders show up every day and lead through example.
