As I sit in my office this morning drinking my cup of coffee, I am inspired by my mug. DREAM BIG! And that is just what I have done. It didn’t start out that way. For me, coaching was just suppose to be a hobby. Something that allowed me to get the discount, but it has become something so much more.
When I was young I wanted to save the world! I loved animals and wanted to be a vet, or maybe a teacher, or maybe a child psychologist! I wanted to help others! I give off a tough exterior, but that’s only because of my life experiences. I have a REALLY big heart. In college, I decided I wanted to be a missionary and work with kids in other countries. I went on missions trips and seeing the laughter and joy on the faces of kids who lived such a hard life was amazing. In the end, I chose the path of Accounting. Why?! Because I was trying to choose the “responsible” career path. I didn’t have much growing up and I didn’t want that for myself or family. So I started down a path that I in no way regret because it has brought me to where I am today and made me the person that I am today.
After college and 13 years in the corporate world working for Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, and multiple CPG Companies… I finally have come full circle. I have been a Team Supervisor in an Accounting Department, an Assistant Buyer for Wine, a Pricing Manager for OTC, an Insights Manager/Category Manager for a Wine & Spirit Company, and a Shopper Insights Manager for a Laundry Company. I built my carreer, a portfolio of experience and I was REALLY good at what I did! Others might scratch their heads in confusion as to how I could walk away from such a thriving career and the income I was and could be earning.
I chose to Dream Big. I chose to invest in myself and a passion that I had ignored for years. I am realizing that if you believe in yourself and in what you are doing and you put in the work… you can be successful at perusing your passion. I am my own boss, get to help others, and am able to take care of my family. No more stressing about missing work with sick kiddos or missing their events. As I drove to my children’s parent teacher conferences and attended Muffins with Mom this week I was overwhelmed with gratitude. I no longer miss these things or stress about how I will make it all work. No one is telling me to choose between being a mommy and having a career (And yes, I have actually been told I had to choose) Well, I chose to Dream Big and am so glad I did!✨
I don’t have a degree or background in Nutrition or Fitness. It doesn’t take a degree to have a heart to help others. It only takes caring and being willing to share your journey and experiences. I am constantly learning and doing my best to share what I have learned with others. This is no longer a hobby. This is my business. I am the CEO and I choose the amount of time I want to invest, the amount of work I want to put in, and the amount of income I want to earn. Whether you want to help 1 other person on their journey, are looking to be home more with your kids, want to find a career that allows you to work from anywhere, or want to start your own business and be your own boss… I would love to have you on my team!
