Defining SHUT UP Moment:

I’ve been in business for over four years. The day I decided to attend coaching school was the day I also decided to start my own business. I had originally gone to grad school to be an actor. I lived in New York city and getting a job as a an actor wasn’t covering my bills. I was working day jobs in the finance world but it was not in alignment with me. It was draining my soul slowly. I needed to be doing something impacting people with my gifts.

I was thousands of dollars in debt after I had been laid off from my finance job and transitioning into temp job. A friend told me I should get into coaching and how it would give me flexibility in my life and schedule. There was a caveat. Coaching school was an investment of about $10,000. While I was visiting family in Florida during that time, my father who was a businessman and entrepreneur himself and I were talking. I cried and said to my dad, “What if I screw this up? What if I don’t get any clients? What if it doesn’t work and I end up $10,000 in the whole than I already am?” My dad said, “Everything is a risk and you have to take risks in life. I believe you can do it. I believe you can create a successful business.” I made the call that day and from then on fear drove me a little bit because I knew I had to make it work. I decided to go all in.
