I grew up on a family farm in Middle America where I spent my days daydreaming of flying to far off lands to help people in need.
One week after I graduated from college, I boarded a plane and then spent the next 17 years working in development and humanitarian response to conflicts all over the world.
I followed this path because I wanted to help others. But I often felt far removed from the people I was there to help or more part of the problem than the solution.
As the years passed, the desire to help people in need turned into a pursuit for more money and career status and the adventure and adrenaline rush of life overseas.
I couldn’t understand why I felt so off. I was living the exact career I had dreamed about as a child.
To ease my restlessness, I started waking early each morning before work to create for an hour or two on the side. I wrote two books and tried to launch a line of women’s business suits. I then took 6 months off to wander through Europe, but I still felt lost.
One day I woke up fed up with two things: writing stuff that no one read and the violence in the world. So I launched a peace blog called, Shanti Pax (which means “peace” in Sanskrit and Latin), hoping the blog would start a revolution. And it did…in my life. It led me to life coaching, which enabled me to discover how I want to use my core gift to help others.
But knowing what I wanted was one thing and actually doing it was another. By coincident (or not), I launched my coaching business at the same time I got married and became a mother of three (“second mommy” to two and a baby I birthed). This is when I became a mompreneur – a journey with a steep learning curve, a long list of struggles, and the sweetest rewards.
After living in 9 countries on 4 continents and quitting not one, but two “gold-plated jobs” to pursue my dream of being both a mother and my own boss, I’ve learned a thing or two about taking calculated risks to stay on my true path. If you’re ready to uncork your full potential, then I’d love to help you create that magic you’ve been yearning for.
