My Journey to Entrepreneurship: The Big Leap
I did not start out with the intention of becoming an entrepreneur. In fact, my entrepreneurial journey started in corporate.
While at the height of my executive career in public service, I felt an inner restlessness to do something more, be more and realize a much bigger mission, but I was too busy to pay attention.
It took me another three years before life made me pay attention — I headed straight into burn out.
One day while convalescing, I finally realized that if I did not make a change I would forfeit my future, my health, my happiness….and my soul would dim its light.
So, I ended my 15-year corporate career in a five-minute phone call.
Why did it take so long?
The driving force of my fear…was money.
The idea of leaving a six-figure salary behind made me question, what if I fail and can’t repeat that level of income, success and influence again?
My fear also took me back to an anxiety-filled time in my early twenties as a young, single mother living from paycheck to paycheck.
Fortunately as a highly trained coach, I was well-equipped to deal with the fear.
And…success leaves clues. I finally accepted that I was destined for more.
So, I set out to answer my life's calling and become an entrepreneur.
A Mission to Empower Visionaries to Rise
Along the way, I recognized that coaches, entrepreneurs and experts are inherently visionaries. They want to make a difference and impact on the world with their talents and gifts. So, I developed programs and trainings to help them turn their calling +mission into a thriving, profitable and fulfilling business.
I also recognized that many women were experiencing the same emotional conflicts that I had experienced with money and needed support.
This led me to write my book, Money Manifestation & Miracles on transforming women’s relationship with money. Women's empowerment holds a special place in my heart.
Foundational in my approach is to first help all of my clients to empower their mindset and relationship with money.
Why? Because it is the gateway to allowing success and wealth to flow + to becoming unstoppable!
A Life of Service, Purpose, Meaning, Wealth and Joy
The honour of helping soulful, ambitious and visionary coaches, entrepreneurs, and experts, like you, to thrive as successful leaders, entrepreneurs and business owners fills me with joy.
I truly believe that the more visionary difference makers are fully empowered, the bigger the ripple effect of good that you, me and we can create.
We have a wonderful opportunity to leverage our calling, mission, wealth and business as a powerful force for good in the world.
