Several years ago I found myself burnt out, super stressed and overwhelmed. I felt like I was living out the movie “Groundhog Day” -- but with “mommy guilt” on top of it all.
Mornings entailed me rushing around getting breakfast and lunches ready, trying to find my kids’ shoes (how hard can it be to put them where they belong??) and screaming at them to get out the door so I wouldn’t be late for work.
Then at work I was bored, lacked motivation for office politics and felt like I was missing out on my life.
After work I carted my kids to all their activities and dealt with the dreaded question, “What should I make for dinner?”
By the time I put the kids down, I was exhausted and hadn’t spent as much quality time with my kids as I wanted and had no energy left for my spouse.
I felt like I was a hamster stuck in a wheel, asking, “What’s the point of it all?” Sound familiar? Starting my own passion based coaching business empowering people like you was my magic bullet to a life I love -- and time with family.
This is why I started my program to teach wanna-be entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and executives like you how to create a business/career and life you love.
Now, she is (as of today!) a bestselling published author to boot! Check out her book on Amazon here!
