1. Tell us a bit about yourself:
As a Career & Business Coach, I love to help my students and clients pursue their passions. I help men and women discover their dream careers, launch their own businesses, and/or teach them how to produce effective marketing campaigns to elevate their business.
2. What was your first job and how did you get it?
My very first "adult" job was a marketer. I met the CEO of a company and he took a chance on me and hired me as a marketing coordinator.
3. How did you decide and get to your career today?
After 17 years of marketing, I learned that I loved helping staff get to their next career goals. I didn't care so much about the actual 9-5 work that I was hired to do. It was all about helping people excel. Around the same time that I had this realization, my father suddenly passed away and I learned that life was short and I should go after my dreams. I started teaching on the side and took coaching courses to learn how to successfully help others. My learnings, plus my corporate executive experience makes me a great Career & Business Coach. Now I enjoy training others to find their dream careers or start their own businesses. Seeing others create a life that they are designed to have is the ultimate success for me.
4. What advice would you have given your younger self? Or what is the best career advice you have ever received??
Do what you love now, don't wait. Life is too short! Now is the time to create the life you want.
5. In 5 years, where do you hope to be professionally and personally?
I will continue to grow my Career & Business Coaching company. I will have numerous courses for people to learn how to start their own business and create effective marketing campaigns. I will continue to help career change seekers. And I will launch a membership site, which I'm super excited about - it will be geared towards new business owners that want to learn how to build successful marketing campaigns.
