I know how you feel. I’ve been there, too.
I spent almost fifteen years as a lawyer and executive – at large national law firms, publicly traded companies, and high-growth startups.
Everyone around me thought I had made it. I had a great career, a supportive family, and beautiful children. But, on the inside it felt very different. I was always distracted. I couldn’t sleep. I doubted whether I was on the right track in my career, and hated the toll it was taking on my well-being.
I knew there had to be a better way…
Through a series of experiences, I began to realize that I was the only one who had the power to change my reality. I could find a new job, download all the best productivity apps, and read book after book on happiness, but none of it would matter unless I made some fundamental changes of my own.
I began to really pay attention – to be present in my own life – in news ways. I noticed how I was causing my own problems – from hanging onto my perfectionism and fear of failure, to letting my insecurity steal my confidence – and started taking full responsibility for solving them. I committed myself to building a mindset primed for real success – a thriving life and career.
Gradually, I began to see results. I learned to give myself grace in the face of mistakes or shortcomings. I stopped wasting time worrying and started taking action instead. And, I prioritized the things that really mattered to me, regardless of what others thought I “should” be doing. Finally, I began to feel the sense of accomplishment and ease I had been seeking.
A new chapter begins…
Encouraged by my own results, I knew it was time to make a change in my career. I wanted to help other ambitious professionals take the same journey I had. I wanted to see my friends and colleagues bringing their very best into their workplaces, communities, and homes. I trained as a professional coach, combining my own real-world experiences with the study of personal development, mindfulness, and other practices to support change.
Today, I use my training, and my experience in managing teams and developing people in the corporate world, to help professionals and leaders in all walks of life take same journey I did. My clients get clear on their most important priorities, move beyond their own stumbling blocks, and build careers focused on achieving results that really matter to them.
You can have a great career without sacrificing your sense of well-being. I’d love to show you how!
