Are you a woman who sees a million possibilities and is excited to reach for them? Are you ready to build a life on your own terms, running a business that helps others to live better lives? Do you hear the call to live a life of greater purpose?
I sure am, and I love working with other women who feel the same way.
Let me admit something. I'm not the woman I thought I'd be. Nope. And what of the woman I've become? I'm a woman and an entrepreneur. I believe in abundance and work daily on my wealth mindset. I am growing spiritually, personally. I focus on growth every day of my life. I have a burning desire to help other women lead empowered, heart-filling, soul-feeding lives.
It took me almost 25 years to learn that there is no "us" and "them"; there are no special people that can have things others can't. There are only people who say, "But I can't have that; I'm not them," and those who say, "Anything is possible for me."
I'm excited to serve entrepreneurs and Blossoming Leaders called to change the lives of millions and who desire to become Gold Toilet Rich. I help you move past your resistance and come into alignment with your calling so you can make a massive impact on the world.
This work grew out of my talents, passions and needs. I'm surprised by how natural my path seems now in hindsight.
The truth is, I knew from 14 that I really didn't want a full-time job when I grew up. That's when I interned at the Environmental Protection Agency. I don't know what role the work I did played in the larger picture of protecting our Mother Earth. I just know I spent 6 weeks that summer sitting in a cubicle, walking past homeless people each morning on my way in, and freezing in the A/C while listening to Hanson on my mom's yellow Walkman. My eyes struggled to stay open in the fluorescent lighting. I just couldn't wait to be done.
I've held other in-office jobs and they all just ended up the same: soul-sucking torture fests.
Some people are built for that life. I'm not about it. (And you're in the right place if you're not about that 9-5 life either, unless you recognize it as a temporary stepping stone to something bigger for you.)
Even as the daughter of an small business owner, it took me a shockingly long time to realize that choosing to avoid the 9-5 path meant I was choosing to be an entrepreneur.
At first, I wanted to take what I'd learned studying journalism at Temple University and use it in a career as a freelance magazine writer. I imagined myself writing long features for glossy national pubs like Marie Claire, penning recipes for Bon Appétit, and building a following by blogging about romantic relationships à la Ms. Carrie Bradshaw.
Actually, I even started an online magazine while in college that made maybe $10 from 4 issues. And I dreamed that I might someday found and edit a publication for 20-35 year olds who live in Philadelphia, but I'll have to find a money guy, I thought.
Post-graduation, I ended up writing about business, the arts and hard news for Philly-area publications, and wrote a few pieces for Pacific Standard, Salon.com and Philadelphia magazine.
But the money was unsteady.
It was torturous. I felt really passionate that I should be able to do work that I truly enjoyed without struggling to get by financially. (I firmly believe, by the way, that when something feels like it just has to be possible, it most definitely is. We could never imagine something for our lives that is actually impossible.)
I sought other ways to pay rent, and after working part-time at a PR agency, I figured out that by providing marketing strategy, public relations and social media services to my own clients, I could afford to write for pleasure.
Naturally, I found my attentions shifting and I spent more time and energy on what came to excite me more: my client work in marketing and PR.
On my own growth journey, I've seen several shifts in my business (who I serve and how I serve them has evolved and I'm no longer doing what I was doing in the beginning). And I'm so excited to share my history with my clients as they make their own. I serve my clients not by turning them into copycats of myself, but by using my own experiences to help them navigate their own journey.
Now, I'm the Mindset and Marketing Coach to entrepreneurs and Blossoming Leaders called to better the lives of millions and who want to be Gold Toilet Rich.
