I spent the first half of my life taking care of other people and neglecting myself. I’m spending the second half kicking ass and teaching other women how to do the same thing.
Before the blog, before the Empowerment Experience, before E-School, I was an overworked, underappreciated, stressed out, depressed, and resentful mom.
Full of self doubt.
Full of fear.
Unable to leave a marriage that was preventing me from experiencing true happiness.
Ironically, it was my unhealthy marriage that helped me grow and change and discover what I truly wanted for myself and my kids.
The lessons I learned through parenting and a failed marriage brought me to the place I am today.
Living my dream life.
I didn’t get here overnight.
It’s taken years.
Years of hard work. Years of self-reflection. Years of being super uncomfortable.
What you really need to know about me.
I started writing this “about” page, agonizing over what to say.
Here’s what you really need to know.
- I’m a single, divorced mom of five.
- I believe we are all works in progress.
- I LOVE the beach.
- Exercise is my therapy.
- I fuck up all the time.
- I like the word fuck.
Most people who meet me for the first time will tell you I’m funny and outgoing and a no bullshit kind of person.
But for a long time, that was only true about my exterior.
The first 45 years of my life were spent doubting myself, second guessing my gut, comparing myself to other people, and beating myself up over failures, mistakes, and missed opportunities.
That’s a really fucking tiring way to live.
Now I know better.
And I have created a life for myself where my health and happiness come first.
It took me a LONG time to get to this place.
It took me a long time to be okay with investing in myself before I invested in anyone else.
But once I got to that point, that’s when things started snowballing.
In a good way.
Once I figured this out, my purpose became clear.
I want to help other women get to that place, too. The place where we are the best version of ourselves because we take care of us first.
Because you can’t be the mom, the friend, the wife, the daughter, the sister, the partner, the employee, the boss, or the human being you are capable of being when you are neglecting yourself.
And you deserve complete and total happiness and fulfillment.
That’s why you’re here.
You want more for yourself and your family.
You just aren’t sure where or how to start.
But you’re ready to do the work.
That’s where I come in.
Together, we can change the direction of your life.
You deserve the best.
So let’s start making that happen.
