Profesional bio…

Balancing getting all the things done at the same time as being the exact kind of person each different stakeholder expected me to be.
I hated that part of the job.
And I didn’t know that it was ok to be any other way.
I didn’t realize that the people I served would be BETTER served if I approached my job from a place of feeling comfortable and safe in my own skin, being just me, in all of my me-ness.
When I realized I could be all of myself, all of the time, my life radically shifted.
I stopped spending time with people who made me feel like shit about myself… and I started liking myself more (imagine that).
I stopped talking about shit that ran counter to my beliefs, so my belief in myself and my integrity skyrocketed.
I stopped apologizing so much, stopped catering to people who I thought were bullshit.
I allowed space in my life for the possibility that I was just human, and didn’t need to have it all figured out already.
The messy middle became my sanctuary. I was a work in progress, and I was (mostly) ok with the discomfort of allowing myself to grow beyond a white-bread, cookie cutter executive career path.
My anxiety plummeted.
My self-confidence soared.
Again and again and again, I chose myself over the version of myself other’s felt comfortable with me being.
A new normal set in, one where I was comfortably uncomfortable knowing that each day, week, month, financial quarter, and year would look different.
My income doubled.
Then tripled.
Then quadrupled.
My sense of Who I Am as a person detached from what I do; my people pleasing tendencies disappeared.
I stepped outside of the boxes I had placed myself inside as I tried to conform to who I thought I needed to be in order to have the career I wanted, so that the one I’ve always been meant to have could start to form.
Ease. Joy. Authenticity. Trust. Comfort. Safety.
Things I never felt when I was still crafting a high impact career in the way I thought I was supposed to.
Things I feel in such abundance now that I am floored with gratitude each night by the time I close this here laptop that I’m typing on right now.
I want you to have the juicy delicious FREEING feeling each day when you hit go.
Your drive, talents, creativity… the world needs you.
Not the Wonderbread packaged version of You you were taught to be in grad school.
You get to be all of you, all the time. It’s your birthright.
I want to show you how.
