Member Spotlight

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

I'm MiMi, a mum to an amazing five-year old girl, a leadership and life coach, designer of handmade clothing and jewelry, entrepreneur, and women's advocate. I'm currently focused on changing the lives of professional women and creative entrepreneurs around the world.

How would you define your professional mission?

My professional mission is to support women all over the world to create the best lives they choose for themselves. My goal is to help women bounce back from whatever has them stuck in work, life and play so that they can create soulful, purposeful, meaningful lives that impact their personal lives, work, business, families, community, and the world, if they wish.

What qualities does it take for someone to be successful in your line of work?

The qualities it takes for someone to be a successful coach include authentic relating, powerful listening, empathy and love.

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

I started off planning to be an accountant or investment banker, but decided to go into law. My goal was always to be a fashion designer and life coach. Thanks to 15-years of self-doubt, a loud inner critic and fear of failure, I worked as an attorney until I did the deep inner transformative work I needed to live my life purpose; serving women and children, and supporting women to truly live before they die. To help them share their gifts and talents with the world, and create the lives of their dreams.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I am inspired, blessed and humbled everyday by the opportunity to see women discovering, accepting, loving, and embracing who they were created to be. The transformation is just the icing on the cake.

What legacy do you hope to leave through your work?

I hope to leave a legacy of joy.

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

My job is the perfect fit for me because it allows me to show up fully and use every gift inside of me every day. Fashion designing showcases the creative side of my personality and it lights me up to put smiles on the faces of women and children every day. As a coach, the gift of opening my heart as wide as possible and trusting each woman to awaken to her own brilliance inspires me to be the best version of myself everyday. Inspiring women and challenging them to live their best lives motivates me to jump out bed everyday.

What would you say your personal superpower is?

My personal superpower = Intuition + Empathy.

What does success look like to you?

To me, success looks like living fully everyday; indulging as many gifts and talents as I can each way, while creating authentic relationships with myself and those around me. It means going to bed each day grateful for love and life, and waking up each morning, joyful to make a difference. It looks like my little girl hugging me each day, and reminding me at that when all is said and done, those are the moments that truly matter to me.
