How would you define your professional mission?
My mission is to restore true emotional connection to relationships through compassion and forgiveness.
We’d love to hear more about your career path. What led you to where you are today?
I was led to where I am today when I realized that while I was committed to starting my investment company and driven to succeed, my relationship with my husband was losing it's strength. As a result, he fell for another woman. The work that we did to find our way back to a strong, connected and committed relationship was powerful. Hearing the pain points in the personal relationships of other highly driven individual has made me passionate about sharing the tools we used to get through that major breakdown to be in the breakthrough that we now enjoy.
What is your morning ritual?
My morning ritual is to have quiet, reflective time for about 10 minutes, head to the gym for a workout, followed by a shower that ends in a 10-15 second cold shower while reciting my personal mantra and stating my intention for the day.
What is your favorite social media site? Why?
My favorite social media right now is facebook because that's where I have my greatest reach and can share my live inspirational videos on both a personal and professional page.
What would you say your personal superpower is?
My personal superpower is the ability to find a point of connection with virtually everyone I meet.
What does success look like to you?
Success looks like freedom to me. Money is never a reason that I cannot do what I want to do. And, I am making a difference for people and their relationships. Most of all, the fact that I can work from anywhere in the world and live in Europe in the summers is my version of success. It's my dream becoming my reality.
Is work-life balance a problem for you? What is one no-fail tactic you use to create balance?
Work-life balance is not really a problem except for the fact that I tend to be a workaholic. The only way to not be in that workaholic space is to have days where there is no phone or computer distracting me and to also not have "shiny object" syndrome. Meaning that I need to do and try everything or I'm missing out. I learn to say no and focus on the step that I am in. I make time to escape with my husband and do FUN things!
What is the best career advice you ever received?
The best advice I've received is to trust myself and to say yes to opportunities that forward my vision and goals, even if I don't know how.
What is one piece of advice you’d offer working moms?
The best piece of advice I'd offer working moms is to get rid of the guilt, ask for support and stop trying to do it all. It's okay for things to be messy. Stop being hard on yourself and just enjoy those special moments because every moment is special.
