Give us a little insight about your journey that got you where you are today.
Back in 2012, I began my journey as a broke, single mom with two little kids, struggling and hustling to build my career from scratch. So much of this journey was about overcoming my tendency to fall into toxic relationships, being strong, yet, still having an invisible pull where I "needed" a man, and doubting my own abilities as a mom and a career woman. No matter my circumstances, I had a dream. That dream kept me going to do the work, even when the outcome had no guarantees. I took massive action that felt so scary and risky. I worked through the hurdles, obstacles, and major triggers, to "make it" to where I am today. I am extraordinarily happy and proud to have accomplished the dream of working from home, building the business of my dreams, and having wonderful, connected, healthy relationships.
Can you tell us about some success stories you've had with your business/product or anything of which you are extremely proud?
I started my coaching business doing 1-on-1 coaching, and that lasted a long time. Subconscious reprogramming can feel very unique and person-specific, and I never thought I could scale this to a group level, but I did. The great thing about the group is that community support is something really valuable. People don't realize how much they need it, and how much it helps them, until they experience it. I even created a DIY course called "Magnetize Money™ " on money blocks and breakthroughs, which I'm proud to say is the best I have ever come across in the industry.
What is one motivational quote that has inspired you in your journey? Do you have any advice for other women who are working towards starting their own business?
"The only way out is through." - Robert Frost
When you start your business, that's when you'll be required to do the most self-development than you've ever done. Even if you think right now that you've done a lot, you will be challenged more than ever when building your business. Don't wait until you're more ready. Instead, start now, and deal with the growth you need as they come up. You're not ready until you start.
Why do you think it is important for women to support each other, especially in your field of work? How do you or your company help combat systems and policies that exist to keep women marginalized?
Absolutely. Every industry is male-dominated at the top. We're still learning how to "wear" feminism properly, as a society. There are few women at the top, and it's important that women support each other, because every woman has to overcome their gender and cultural conditioning to "play nice, be nice," to be a convenience, to be pleasant and helpful to others while even sabotaging herself. My company helps women set and reach for her uncomfortable big goals, open her eyes to finally see the depth of the blind spots of: the automated habits of putting others first, feeling antagonized by other women, and not wanting to show off or stand out too much. She needs courage and support to go against the grains of millennia, of mental conditioning women received, to live her highest potential, and make the difference she's meant to make. My company supports and stands to be the leader of the next chapter of true feminism.
What are some ways you practice self care and how does it help you in your life and career? Do you have any tips for other women to stay balanced?
The most important self-care is what others don't see. Not our nails, makeup, hair, although, those things are nice and important. Meditation, having a strong support system of family and female friends, as well as hobbies and interests outside of her business, give her the mental and emotional recharge that she needs so she can show up more powerfully and be productive.
What are some long term goals you have for yourself or your business?
Taking the business to 8 figures to help more women around the globe, then, opening a not-for-profit that helps to support women in developing countries who do not have access to such resources and support.
Is there anything else you want people to know about you, your business, or any projects you are working on?
Women and money blocks are a prominent problem. Her gender and cultural conditioning gets in the way. I created a short mini-course to help her start getting to the root of the issues, and start resolving them. I also have a program for women in business where we do this work together, and form a strong, supportive community, exactly what she needs to reach her highest potential.
