"Whenever I can, I head out on the open road in my Airstream. It reminds me that life is meant to be enjoyed. I never know who I'm going to meet and the connections and memories I'm going to make. It's what makes me feel alive!"
About me. (AKA, Why I do what I do.)
You could say that Create Your Life's Journey ™ has been a lifetime in the making, and is the result of my life experiences, and the search for what would make my soul sing.
I spent most of my 25-year career in the advertising world, working with very creative people in a fast-paced, demanding business. While I enjoyed what I did, I eventually I found myself wondering "What am I doing here?" I tried to convince myself that I was just going through a phase. Deep down, I knew that wasn't true. I'm sure you've had that feeling at some point in your life...that's your intuition, guiding you along.
So, without a specific plan, and with the support of my husband, I quit my advertising job to explore what would make me happy down to my core. My purpose.
I believe you owe it to yourself to live the best life that you possibly can -
whatever that looks like, and whatever it takes. Not everyone can do it in such a drastic way, and I actually don't recommend it for most people. I would love to say it was an easy transition, and that everything was yippy skippy.
It wasn't. There was a lot of self-doubt, judgement, and stumbling. And pressure from within.
"What am I going to do next?" kept repeating in my head.
I won't bore you with the details of the various chapters. Let's just say, there were a number of them.
Each time I tried something and it wasn't "it", I felt like a failure, failing to see the gift in it.
Failing to see that each "failure" got me closer to what I was supposed to be doing.
I continued to explore my options, and try things that interested me, while doing a lot of inner work at the same time. As Elizabeth Gilbert says, I followed my curiosity.
I looked back at the highlights of my career and life, and a common thread started to appear.
What gave me the most joy and a feeling of accomplishment was when I was helping people in my life, when they were stumped with career and personal challenges.
It's one of those things that I loved to do, and could not pull back enough to see that it was my passion and that I could actually do what I loved as "my job".
A thought that I know a lot of people have in the back of their mind when they find their purpose, "How can this be my job... it's more fun than work!"
Bottom line, I gave myself permission to do what I love.
Over the years I found myself drawn to self-development classes and learning how to work more with energy and my intuition, and I realized that the answers were within each of us. That's how Create Your Life's Journey ™ was born ... from my desire to take what I had learned to help women do what they loved.
To help them tap into their own intuition.
To help them figure out what the heck was stopping them from experiencing their greatness.
What does that mean?
Simply, it means I help women realize that there is no excuse to not create a life that makes them happy.
So I dove right in and over the years, became a certified coach and became an EFT/Tapping practitioner, adding to other modalities I was trained and experienced in, including SRT/energy clearing and Reiki.
My tool kit.
The answers to your questions and purpose really are within.
Sometimes, you just can't see them or hear them. The tricky part, where we get stumped, is figuring out how to hear the answers or see the solutions, and not doubt our own "inner compass."
That's where I come in.
I have an innate ability to show women how to discover what they want and how they can make it happen ... in a simple, straightforward and supportive way.
Nothing really makes me happier than seeing the transformation of my clients, when the light goes on in their eyes and they realize that anything is possible.
