Since the first time I heard about Mother Teresa while sitting in my 3rd grade classroom at West Union Elementary School, I knew I wanted to be a difference maker in this world. I can still vividly remember the awe and inspiration I felt when seeing the kindness in the eyes of a woman dawning a white veil with blue stripes in one of my history books, and although my path would be much different, I knew then and there that I wanted to be a source of love and compassion in a sometimes dark and lonely world.
Fast forward into adult-hood and I'm definitely no patron saint 😂, but I still have the same love and compassion for humanity and the same strong desire to make the world a better place.
At times in my life I have bounced off track, but I’ve always been able to get back to my center and back to MY BEST LIFE through contribution and compassion. I LOVE MAKING PEOPLE FEEL GOOD. I love being part of the solution. I love when people feel accepted JUST AS THEY ARE. And I especially love when people step into their own purpose and passion - LIVING THEIR BEST LIFE DAILY.
I started realizing that I’ve been blessed with this amazing love for people, and I’ve also been a ‘geek’ of the self-help industry my whole life. (Don’t believe me… I had to write my dad a paper at the age of 11 on the 7 Habits of Highly Successful Teens by Sean Covey. Yeah… I was geeking out on this stuff even before I wanted to be. Lol.) And I simultaneously started to realize that I want to help people feel good for more than just a day or a couple of hours. I want to genuinely help people live out their passion for life every day!
So, in 2016 I decided to go back to the drawing board after 13 years as a successful hairstylist. I became a Certified Transitional Life Coach in June of 2017, and shortly after launched YOUR BEST LIFE DAILY. I also began writing a book called THRIVING THROUGH TRANSITIONS around that same time. As with many new businesses, it's taken me awhile to figure out how all the pieces fit together. Thoughts like, "how the hell do you brand yourself when you simply want to make the world a better place?" clouded my mind a lot during that first year. I listened to the advice of many mentors telling me to choose my avatar (the ideal client I'd like to coach), and I struggled to narrow down what that avatar would look like. How could I choose to represent a certain demographic or group when one of the core principles I live by is inclusivity?
Always being one to go against the grain, I decided to forge a new path. I decided that I don't need an avatar to make a difference in the world. I simply need to live on purpose with my mission—to inspire and motivate people all over the world to live their own, unique, best lives each and every day!
So, whatever path you want to walk, I'd love to come on that journey with you! I want to help you live life on YOUR OWN terms and truly live YOUR BEST LIFE DAILY. If you're struggling through a particularly tough transition, my new book Thriving Through Transitions—a practical guide for turning life's most challenging moments into opportunities to thrive, is sure to help you get back into the driver's seat of your best life.
I'll also be launching many exciting programs in the next 4-6 months (including the THRIVE TOGETHER MASTERMIND), and I can’t wait to share them with you! YOUR BEST LIFE DAILY is getting a major makeover! I've teamed up with some incredible, inspiring women to take the movement to a new level! In the meantime, I invite you to explore my site, schedule a complimentary discovery session where I'll help you uncover your biggest obstacles to success and we'll create a game plan to overcome them, or sign up for one of my upcoming events.
I wish you a life of LIVING YOUR BEST!
