I was a competitive athlete and the "class clown" while growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. When it came time for college, I didn't know what career I wanted to pursue. Result...I explored three majors over eight years, built a pile of debt and still didn't know what career would light me up.
Three years later, I was bored and burning out as a life insurance agent. I was performing well, but I wasn't happy, and I was sick of working 50-hours a week.
At that point, I made a firm decision to move on and finally find the type of work I would wake up excited to do every day.
One week later, I met a coach and received a session from him. At the end of the session, I looked him in the eye and said, “What you just did with me, I’m gonna do with others for the rest of my life.” I found my calling, started taking steps towards creating a coaching business and never looked back.
After discovering that my purpose in life is to help people become more fulfilled and free, I became obsessed with personal, professional and business development. With that, I started to make the changes I wanted in my life. And, it goes a little somethin' like this...
In 2006, I created a business doing what I love for a living.
In 2013, I moved to Boulder, Colorado, which I dreamed about doing since I was young. I love be surrounded by inspiring people and playing in the magic of the Rocky Mountains.
In 2014 I decided to conquer my pattern of having "pretty good" romantic relationships and attract my soul mate. I started to apply the tools that worked for everything else, and BAM!...she showed up two weeks later. My most rewarding manifestation yet! Our ability to grow and work through challenges is a thing of beauty. So is she.
Last, but not least, I stopped working so damn much and created a flexible, fun and healthy lifestyle. These days, I spend a lot of time with friends, family, nature, music, dance, travel and something called spontaneity.
Alright, enough about me. What do YOU want to change in YOUR life?
