About Me

Hey! :) Thanks for visiting my page!!
.
So, just a little background on me, I was always EXTREMELY shy, my entire life. I wasn't popular, I had very low self esteem, social anxiety, and I was bullied in school. My mom passed away when I was little and I left my dad’s house the beginning of my senior year, when I was 17. I went from a straight A student to living with friends, going down the wrong path, and almost failing my first semester. That’s when my grandma invited me to live with her. I enrolled in a new high school for the second semester of my senior year, got myself back on the right track, and graduated.
.
It wasn’t until I started going to cosmetology school that I learned how to experiment with hair and makeup, as well as fashion, which helped build my confidence. I finally started to make friends and feel like I fit in. I met my (now) husband, Joe. Then started working at a salon for 2 years before I decided that I wanted to go back to college and get my degree, because I felt like that’s what you’re ‘supposed to do’.
.
I decided to go into Education. I chose this for two reasons. One, school is where I was bullied and I felt like I had no one on my side. I wanted to be the teacher that kids could turn to for help. While student teaching, I was part of the anti bullying program. I just wanted kids to know they had someone who cared and who they could go to for help.
.
The second reason I chose the education field was because I want to have kids one day, I feel like this is my purpose in life. I want to give them the childhood I always wished I had. Put them in sports, be at their events, chaperone their field trips, spend the summers with them, and just be present. Teaching would allow me the schedule to do that.
.
SO, I completed student teaching and graduated college with honors. I continued to substitute teach while job searching. But I never actually applied anywhere because I was TERRIFIED of the intense interview process that you have to go though as a teacher and I think that really held me back from actively finding a position.
.
Then my friend contacted me saying her company had an opening. It was a 9-5 desk job. And well, substitute teaching and donating plasma for extra money, just wasn’t paying the bills, so I took the offer. A year later, I realized I was miserable. I was unhappy, I was struggling to pay off student loans and debt, I was out of shape, tired, unfulfilled, and just not myself.
.
I remembered quite a few years ago, my husband, Joe brought home P90X and Shakeology. I had no motivation or desire to workout and hated the gym, but since I could do it from home and I had him to help motivate me, we decided to try it together. I was never consistent with it, but I enjoyed it more than the gym and we got really great results from it. So I decided I would do another home workout and maybe that would help me get out of the funk I was in.
.
I started googling, and that’s when I stumbled upon Online Accountability Groups!! I found a Coach, picked a workout and nutrition program, and joined the group! WELL, turns out I LOVED it! I was noticing so many positive changes in myself, not just physically either! I had more ENERGY, I FELT better, I was HAPPIER, my CONFIDENCE was growing, and I was making new FRIENDS <3
.
Once I started sharing this journey, people started asking me about it and wanting to join me! I had no clue what I was doing! I have no background in fitness or nutrition or sales or anything. But I started Coaching and running my own Accountability Groups based on the info I was given and learning along the way!
.
I've always been driven by helping others, not by making money. I had accepted the fact that I probably would never be making a lot of money as a teacher but I didn't care because I was making a difference in peoples lives, so I was ok with it!
.
But then when I stumbled upon the Coaching Opportunity and it completely changed my entire life!! I realized that I could fulfill my Passion of helping other people while bettering myself physically, mentally, and emotionally as well! And that it doesn't have to mean being broke forever. You can make a substantial income while helping others!
.
I never imagined in a million years that I would own my own business. I am so GRATEFUL for every opportunity that has come my way. I am THANKFUL that I BELIEVED in myself and had faith that everything would turn out, because GUESS WHAT?!?! It DID!
.
I am now in the best shape of my life and FEEL better than I've ever felt before. I've learned to be myself, own it, and not care what others think. Not to mention, I've met some of the most amazing, supportive friends through this journey!
.
We went from a tiny one bedroom apartment, living paycheck to paycheck to being able to RETIRE my Husband from his Corporate Job, which has given us the FREEDOM to pack up and move to Florida and take vacations whenever we want to. And, never though I'd say this but we are DEBT FREE!
.
If you are ready to make a change in your life, let go of the FEAR that is holding you back. BELIEVE in yourself. Take that first step toward getting there and just have faith that everything will work out as it is supposed to!
