What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

After spending eight years working overseas, different time zones, and datelines, it was time for me to return to the US. I lived and worked in the Marshall Islands and Australia during that time. Before my overseas work contract, I was a beach bum in Maui for 16 years (jk no beach bumming, but Maui life – yes). After so many years of living on an island, I decided Arizona would be a great place to call home. I was fortunate enough to begin my life in the desert and new career/business as a personal assistant. That lead me to work as hard as I could to grow my business, and not look back!

Here I am, not letting my fears stand in the way of my own success.

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Diane George, HR Expert for Luxury Companies

thrive thursday May 19, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today? 

My story is one of leadership and embracing the role.  As a young girl, I dreaded being seen.  In grade school, as we lined according to height, I was always the last in line because I was the tallest in the class.  Not only was I tall but considered skinny. This came with taunting and I wasn’t thrilled at sticking out and tried to make myself as invisible as possible.  That, however, didn’t stop teachers from calling on me or picking me to do special projects.  I thought if I wasn’t so tall, they couldn’t see me. 

I didn’t understand why.  As I got older, I realized they weren’t calling on me because I was the tallest in the class and stuck out but because I was a leader.  This became more apparent as I found myself constantly in leadership roles whether I asked for it or not.  Learning to embrace it was a much...

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I am ME and there is no other like me!  I have always been told I have a twin but beyond looking like each other, I think that would be it.  I am complicated.  My awesomeness is made up of my experiences, my knowledge, and my being.   So, here are the highlights as concise as I can be:  

A – I am authentic.  What you see is what you get.  Don’t ask me if you don’t want to know.  I won’t mince words but if I don’t have anything nice to say…well, I will be quiet. Enough said.

W – I have this uncanny wisdom which I can only explain from a prior near-death experience where I was told to “remember”.  And, when needed I do.  So, I would say ‘wise beyond my years”.

E – I have experienced in all things eclectic.  Growing up overseas, traveling often,...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Achea Redd, Founder of Real girls F.A.R.T.

thrive thursday May 13, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

In 2016, after battling with chronic undiagnosed mental health issues and a cancer scare, I had a nervous breakdown that drove me to the doctor's office. That was when I received a diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression. Once I received the diagnosis I started a blog called Real Girls F.A.R.T. (Fearless, Authentic, Rescuer, Trailblazer) wanting to point to the stigma surrounding mental health conversations much like the taboo around the word ”fart”. I wanted women to be okay with showing their vulnerabilities and be comfortable shedding perfectionism. The blog was therapy for me as well as the desire to help others through their mental health journey. From the blog, we became a social media platform as well as a for-profit that hosts empowerment sessions for women and girls in the community. Continuing to write the blog I started turning my story into a book called Be...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Allison Jordan; Founder of Allison Jordan Events & Epic Arts Entertainment

thrive thursday May 13, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

My story is ever-evolving. What I know today, I did not know last night. Hour after hour, minute after minute, I am constantly searching for areas to grow, to do better, and to be better. I have become more vulnerable over the years, which has created a more authentic way of being, this has allowed me to search for truth, for answers and for guidance from others and my creator. I have many women over my life that have mentored me, supported me, and left me with diamond nuggets of information, affirmations, and love. My story is one of hard work, sacrifices, failing, growing, breakdowns, and breakthroughs. Today I am a work towards Awesomeness, today I am a student of Peace and Universal light...So today I am almost Awesome.

 

What message do you promote?

As a little girl, I was always curious, I learned to cook from my dad, I learned to pray from my mom and I learned to dance from my brother...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Veronica Vargas Imagineer and CEO at Shaboo Prints

thrive thursday May 05, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

All my life I dutifully did what I was told. I was a model daughter and friend, then a citizen, a girlfriend than an employee.

I became a marketer and was working in various corporate environments, the last being commercial aircraft. I worked hard and lived for the weekend, like everyone else. By the time I was in my thirties, I became very unfulfilled and depressed, which baffled me because I was doing everything “right”, what society defined as successful living. I started to think that I was broken, that something was wring with me and it all peaked with a breakdown in the shower one Monday morning before work. I hated everything about my life! I realized that if I was going to survive within that context that I was going to have to do more activities that brought me joy. But at the time I didn’t even know what that meant so I remembered the joy I felt as a child. I recalled...

#Thrive Thursday Meet Dr. Anita Sanchez Author- Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times, CEO Sanchez Tennis & Associates, Trainer, Speaker

thrive thursday Apr 30, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today? 

I attribute my joy to the power of dreams, the wisdom of indigenous elders and nature, and the presence of support from all my relations (family, teachers, executives, pets, trees…) along the way. As early as age 4, I recall a dream where there was this huge earth with many stick people of different sizes, colors, shapes on it.  We each had our hands on each other’s hearts. I knew very early that this is who I was going to be when I grew up. Although I have new dreams, this early dream of connecting hearts persists. So even in the darkest times, when I held the painful secret as a little girl of being sexually abused and the trauma as a new teen of the race-related murder of my father, I had lots of healing to do: forgiveness to practice for myself and others, rekindling hope, and drawing on the power of unity.  

I am living my dreams, and I know that it is...

#Thrive Thursday: Meet Deborah Capaccio; Beachbody Coach, Physical Therapist, Leader, and Mom

thrive thursday Apr 22, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today? 

At the age of 47 years old, I was probably at one of the lowest points of my life.  I truly believed my time had come and gone, my ship had sailed, and frankly, it was too late for me to make any sort of difference in the world. 

However, on the outside, I appeared to have it all. 

The perfect life. Two college degrees, a 22-year career as a successful Physical Therapist, a loving husband who is a physician, 3 healthy children, and the ability to travel and work part-time.  What could possibly be wrong?  How ungrateful must I be? 

Well, on the inside, I had lost my sparkle.  Aside from being a great mom, a devoted wife, and a caring Physical Therapist, I had no idea who I truly was.  I lacked passion, fulfillment, and purpose.  I knew in the depth of my soul, I had gifts and talents that I wasn’t tapping into.  And as...

thrive thursday Apr 15, 2020

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I came to the US without much when I was 23 and started on the bottom to climb up with hard work and determination. Nothing was given to me, I worked for everything I am today.

I worked at Walmart with little English and within 6 years, I owned my own online marketing company. I know the struggle of running the business with family and went through turmoil for years. I never gave up and brought the companies I started and managed to the multi-million dollar level. I have been in a place of transformation and ready to share what I have.
