As a kid, our household was filled with anxiety and angst. Mom was very bitter, unconsciously raising my brother and I to be skeptical and judgemental.
I don't know about you, but I've found the biggest growth to come from the most uncomfortable of places.
My fixed mindset had me feeling unsettled and I knew something had to change if I was going to get myself out of feeling so despondent. Through partnering with my mentor, Wendy, I was able to discover how to be a leader in my own life.
But that was only the beginning.
Mom has since passed and I've come to realize that self-discovery is a life-long journey that ebbs and flows. Our past stories don't make up who we are, they are there to help us reflect on how far we've come.
Self-leadership is the greatest skill I've ever learned. It has helped me to see when to lean into life and take greater risks. I have more courage and a deeper love for myself than ever before.
Because of coaching and leadership, I am where I am. Growth opens so many doors you didn't even know were possible. I'd love the opportunity to help you deepen your relationship with life and discover the leader within you.
Nice to meet you
Growing up I didn't realize my mother had mental health issues. It's like that saying "you can't see the forest through the trees". Life was just life and I was just living it... or it was living me. It wasn't until I started University and stumbled into a mentor, that I realized the empty feeling inside was from lacking any sort of purpose.
Up until that point it hadn't occurred to me that I grew up without leadership. You just don't know what you don't know, you know?!
