Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.

I help you overcome stress, fears, anxiety and insomnia using a unique blend of hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), coaching and many other healing modalities. Over 20 years of researching simple ways to calm stress and anxiety birthed itself into my book "Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom."

Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?

I live by the phrase "A rising tide raises all ships." That is why I am an Ellevate member. I love being able to connect and collaborate with other women.

We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?

I was the very first automated voice back in the 1980s when I was Celebrity Radio DJ “Stevie Knox,” Back then, I “hypnotized” my listeners to come back day after day. When my radio career was over, I needed to reinvent myself. For the past 16 years, as an Integrative Hypnotist, I have been using my voice to literally hypnotize my clients into making incredible life changes. One client with a “crippling fear of flying” went on to skydive out of an airplane AND build a very successful business as The Five Foot Traveler! I am also the author of “Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom.”

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Seeing my clients move into their greatness!

What legacy do you hope to leave through your work?

It's never too late to be what you might have been.

What is it about your job that makes you feel it’s the right fit for you?

I am so passionate that change can be easy. When I help my clients make amazing life changes, I feel so incredibly grateful for the gifts I have and can share.

What is your morning ritual?

I'm blessed to have a husband bring me coffee to start the day. After a cup of coffee, we are out the door for a nature walk with our 2 dogs. Then home, another cup of coffee and meditation. A peaceful grounding way to start the day!

What would you say your personal superpower is?

My intuition! My intuition serves me in all areas of my life, not just with my clients.

Is work-life balance a problem for you? What is one no-fail tactic you use to create balance?

No. I don't have just one tactic to create balance - I have 35 in my book "Goodbye Anxiety, Hello Freedom." I believe the way to create and maintain balance is by experiencing short moments of calm many times an hour. When we offload our stress and anxiety on a regular basis, it doesn't build up to crisis levels.

What is the best career advice you ever received?

"Most hypnotists read scripts. I will not teach you how to do that. I will teach you how to find "the script" inside your clients." ~Melissa Tiers
