Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
My name is Kyla D. Lurry Ph.D and I am the founder of KylaNicole, LLC. I'm an international speaker, professor, published author and certified Life coach. I'm a Ph.D in Law and public policy and I specialize in trauma coaching. I teach entrepreneurs how to legalize their business from a policy standpoint and build legal documents. I guide my business of the principals of redirecting entrepreneurs, reshaping authors, and redefining lives on purpose!
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I love policy and organization! Teaching comes very natural to. me and I enjoy being an educator so that was a must. Coaching comes along with that. However, specializing in trauma comes into play because of my life experiences. I had to walk through a ton of stuff. I wanted to make sure that I was able to support others in their trauma. Those that have experienced divorce, assault, abuse etc. need healing and need to see that theres life after that.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
I would say, make sure you do it because you love it. That's with anything! Money will follow you if you're passionate and perfect your craft .I would also say stay on track and pursue your purpose on purpose. Everyone's journey is different so keep your eyes focused!
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
There's always professional challenge when it come to dealing with passions and desires. In this field, I am not always the happy person. I am not always delivering the best news to people, that's a challenge. Telling people that their talent only takes them so far is tough! I tend to really power through issues and communicate. That's important to me. There's a normal part of conflict in our day to day actives so understanding that is key! Once you understand something, you can overcome it because you know how to handle it.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017?
Well this season end, I am working on a Podcast called "Pause and Press Play" and I am working on my latest book called the Game of Life. I just released my latest collaboration book called "When a woman's fed up" a collaborative of domestic violence survivors. My brand is certainly changing and growing for the better! I am very excited about this season and look forward to the many oppurtunities and doors that will open!
