For as long as I can remember, I have been curious about how people work. What makes some individuals happy or successful, while others struggle with depression or feeling inadequate? I have always been a huge fan of personal development and self-discovery education.
As a woman who loves to wear many hats (both literally and figuratively!) I found myself passionate about other things as well: yoga, travel, writing, meditation, and the creative arts. So I explored different career options in these areas as well. I wondered how all of these amazing things could fit together and I struggled for a long time trying to figure out "what I wanted to be when I grew up".
I was frustrated, trying to fit the mold of finding that "one thing" that would make me happy. I felt like everyone else had it figured out, and I didn't. And soon I realized that the "one thing" wasn't an absolute...that I actually had more strength through my many interests, skills, and talents.
Up to this point I had a multitude of careers, working as a therapist for women with self-image issues, managing a multi-location martial arts studio, teaching fitness and self-protection classes, working as a massage therapist in wellness centers, and being leader on a sales team at a national education company. Each experience helped me develop as an individual, and I had no regrets, but I still didn't feel the level of joy and fulfillment that I knew I deserved. I knew there was something missing and something more. So I took a risk and took the plunge of becoming an entrepreneur as a life coach and began to use all of my combined talents to help others.
This is when I began to feel alive. Everything that I had experienced began to fit together. And that big puzzle filled with all of my different interests began to make sense. The picture was getting clearer.
I discovered it was possible to be successful AND creative AND happy.
You really can have it all.
My life's purpose began to unfold once I made the decision to follow my heart and go after my dreams without hesitation. I had amazing opportunities appear, not by accident, but through intention, determination, and faith.
I also was honored with the amazing opportunity to be a TEDx Wilmington speaker, sharing my personal story to viewers across the nation. My talk "Modern Mindfulness for Today's Busy World: The Power of Intention", has become a topic of conversation on a national level.
And one of my biggest joys was finally meeting my soulmate Paul, who is my best friend, love, and partner in life. I have met my match for someone who loves adventure and helping others as much as I do!
We created an amazing business together, helping photographers create a business that serves them on all levels.
We wrote our book together PROFITographers, Creating a Successful Photography Business, which was a #1 best seller on Amazon in the photography section.
We continue to coach and teach the photographer community and I am so blessed to be doing what I love side by side with the person I love most.
I am passionate about helping people live the life that they truly deserve…a life that is full of joy, love, abundance, and success…a life that seems so far out of their reach, but is right there in the palm of their hand.
You've already got it all. You are unique and have something special to share with this world. You are creative. You are already the total package. Sometimes we just need a little nudge to figure this all out. I want to help you with that nudge.
