If this is something that appeals to you... I want you to have it, too!
It's funny to think about it... I wasn't always this brilliant and grounded... I mean if you met me, you would probably think I was just born a powerhouse, but that may not be entirely true.
However, from the moment I was born, I was a seeker. A seeker of truth and power for myself and the reality we live in. But before this bigger awakening I was pretty normal.
I put myself through college, working 2 jobs while attending school full time. After graduating college summa cum laude I got my first job in real estate with the #1 Coldwell Banker agent in San Diego. I began with him as a marketing assistant before becoming his transaction coordinator. Not long after, I got my real estate license. But lo and behold I never became a real estate agent. Why? Because everyday I went into work, I felt like I was surrounded by a bunch of a$$holes! (See I'm totally enlightened, can't you tell?)
I did ,however, start buying properties. I bought my first condo at 23 and by the age of 28 I owned four properties. But then the market bubble popped and I stopped with the landlord funny business.
After working for the #1 agent for Coldwell Banker, I joined the new home building industry and groomed myself in a few different postitions... (Can you tell how much I love HOMES?!) I later went into sales for a company that worked for the new home builders, but then it happened......
MY MINI BREAK DOWN
Now, I'm not calling it a mid-life crisis, because I was only 29 and I have NO intentions of leaving this planet at 58, but it was some kind of crisis for sure.
Let me take a moment to paint a picture for you.... I'm sitting in the Lion King at the happiest place on earth, Disney World, with my little sister (11) and a friend's daughter (15) when the tears start rolling down my face.
I started crying because I was HIT WITH SOMETHING. You ever get hit with something so profound you can't control your emotions...? Well that was this day for me.
What did I do? I phoned a friend... I hopped on the phone with my bestie and cried until the battery died. I know what you're thinking...how quickly can you send your little ones to be supervised by me? I mean, what did the 11 and 15 year old do while I was breaking down? I honestly have no idea...not my best day on this planet, I'll tell you that.
So what was this breakdown about anyways!?!? Well, there was the realization of my SELF, my existence on the earth and the fact that anything I wanted was in front of me, and I felt like I had done NOTHING. This realization was about the fact that people always talk about when they have enough TIME and MONEY they will ______... And I was hit over the head with the FACT that I had time and money and I hadn't really done anything of much importance. I had properties, money, stuff and a great job, but what does that really matter in the grand scheme of things? So I did what any normal crazed 29 year old would do, I quit my job and traveled.
For 2 years I couch surfed, traveled around the world, helped non-profits give back and became more MYSELF than I had ever been before. You see, lots of people want to know how I got into coaching, and this is really how that happened for me.
Before I started traveling I was already coaching people in one of the world's leading personal growth and development companies and it was my travels that had me ground more into my capacities as a coach and mentor. As the dust settled on my travels, people were coming out of the wood work to ask for my advise and expertise. This is how I built my companies... out of the request of others.
Fast forward almost a decade and I have created the most amazing life. I'm married to an extraordinary man, we are raising a beautiful little red-headed girl and we've done some EPIC s*!t! My coaching practice has evolved to include showing people how to master the energetics of themselves, their businesses and money. And because of all of this, my clients have UNBELIEVABLE LIVES.
So I have a question for you... If you had all the time and all the money in the world, what would you be doing?
If you're reading this our paths have crossed. What drew this into your world?
Fun facts about me:
1. My husband refers to me as a golden girl when I wear my pjs (they might resemble something seen on the show).
2. I enjoy eating dinner at 5:30pm, this he lovingly refers to as my blue plate special.
3. I'm masterful at home improvements and crocheting. If you need renovated bathroom or a new hat, I'm your gal!
