Tell us your bold boss story!:
I run Create Coaching & Consulting where I help women build purpose-driven businesses based on their goals, strengths, and talents. I have a passion for helping others create work and lives that are meaningful and fulfilling. My inspiration was sparked in my own journey to finding my true career path. After many years of climbing the corporate ladder, I ended up exhausted and unsatisfied, and I realized it wasn't for me. I began a journey of soul-searching and reconnection to myself during which time I decided to sign up for coach training. Eventually, I was able to combine my skills and passions, honor my dream of working for myself, and focus on an area I loved: Helping others grow and step into their power. My journey took a great deal of self-awareness, patience, perseverance, and trust, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I love what I do and feel so privileged to help other women create work that fulfills them and has a positive effect on the world. I am super inspired by other women business owners and find that this community as a whole is so supportive, resourceful, and full of connection.
We're all about bold boss moments, tell us about one of yours!:
Owning my expertise has been a real boss moment (or journey, rather!) for me. I always struggled to combine my passions and interest and skills and once I did, it wasn't enough to do the work -- I needed to step up to the plate and play bigger. That required me to own my own expertise and put myself out there. Confidence comes with practice and I think it's a skill anyone can learn and improve. (And a necessary skill for business!)
What advice or words of encouragement do you have for the Bold Boss Tribe?:
One piece of advice that might be surprising to hear from a coach, is that YOU are the ultimate resource on your business (and your life, for that matter). When you learn to listen your intuition and rely on your own sense of knowing, that is where the real magic comes in. The best support you can receive in your business will be from those who allow you to lead from your intuition and brilliance, while providing the necessary skills, resources, and tools that help you accomplish your goals. And, mindset is everything. When you learn to master your mind, you have done 90% of the work :)
