As a Creator, please share how your efforts help women to thrive.
I teach millennial moms and start-up entrepreneurs how to master their mindset and balance their lives through the 3 Pillars of Self (self-care, self-worth, & self-discipline). Each of these pillars affects us subconsciously at a personal and professional level. It’s important to recognize how our thoughts show up in those areas. Our thoughts are very powerful. They’re the first key in dictating the reality we live in because our behaviors are influenced by our thoughts.
I am passionate about my work as a peak potential strategist and speaker because when I teach women how to master their most powerful tool (their mind), they thrive all over the place and I love it! The reason I focus on women is because when women grow and develop, they impact the lives of everyone they are connected to. However, many women struggle with the feeling of “I’m not good enough”. I’ve had to overcome that in my own life – from an absent father to an abusive relationship to being called “miracle woman” after a 2007 car wreck left me brain dead and paralyzed. My biggest obstacle was overcoming my mind and knowing that I am more than good enough. Now, I combine my education and experiences to teach women how to overcome any obstacle they are faced with so that they can thrive, too!
What top 3 steps helped you reach success in your passion?
The first step is to make self-care a priority. Self-care is more than spa days. It’s practicing boundaries. It’s saying, “no”. It’s learning how to effectively manage our emotions and heal our limiting beliefs. It’s putting our self first so that we can continue to pour into others.
The second step is to be intentional. When we aren’t intentional about our goals, our day, our lives…we end up in the same place 20 years from now. When we don’t set intentions, it’s easier to become distracted by things, people, or situations that don’t progress us forward. We end up staying stagnant. Being intentional also helps to keep us focused when obstacles arise.
The third step is to take consistent action. The best mindset and advice in the world means nothing if we don’t put action behind it. It’s the seemingly insignificant things we do every day that add up to the big moments and to achieved goals.
How have you pivoted this year to still achieve your goals amidst the unprecedented changes we're all experiencing?
I already run part of my business virtually. So, the biggest change that I had to adjust to was having my two children home all day, every day. Although routines can be helpful, I had to through all routines out of the window because that no longer worked. I had to allow myself grace to make mistakes as I navigated new waters and home-schooling a public school curriculum. It was frustrating, at first, but once I did that, the days got much easier. If home school didn’t start until 9pm, so be it. At least it got done. When forced to pivot, accept that it doesn’t have to be perfect, and instead of trying to walk the path that others create, do what works for you.
