Getting to Know the Real Me
I'm an eclectic mix of left and right brain.
On one hand I’m practical, grounded… and a little bit fiesty…
I had a 25 year corporate career, an education in finance, and I had “made it” to the top of a mans world – as an exec (VP level) in the mining industry.
I LOVED it. So many opportunities for life, growth, and experiences.
It was so much fun… until it wasn’t. And when it wasn’t, it was time to move on. One day, a “final straw” email came in and while reading it, in a totally unglamorous temper tantrum, I threw my take out dinner across the kitchen.
Standing there in the middle of a pile of veggies , pita and chicken – I resigned by Blackberry (remember those things?).
Just like that, I left my near 7 figure corporate career in 2011 with no idea what I was going to do. A few months later, I started my own business.
I thought with all my experience it would be so easy for me. Actually…it was the complete opposite.
I’m not going to give you a “van down by the river story” of struggle and despair that normally shows up in coach’s backstories.
I’ll bottom line it for you – the choices I made in my life up until that point allowed me a lot of financial flexibility so while I never was “BROKE”, I did totally crash and burn the first couple of years and watched my savings dwindle.
Eventually I figured out how to get myself some stability. By working with coaches and following the direction I was given, I managed to bring in an income near 6 figures – Decent, but not great. Despite all my achievements in the corporate world, the result I was getting as an entrepreneur, wasn’t the success that I was used to by a long shot.
The learning is this:
There is NOTHING that the corporate world or traditional education system will do to ever prepare a person for the emotional journey of being an entrepreneur.
And on the other hand, I’m a little bit “woo”….
For years, I was what I call a closet “woo”. I knew there was something missing but my left-brain-trained corporate mind would just not let me go there.
When I finally embraced what I would have formerly dismissed as “woo” – that’s when things changed for me dramatically and my income skyrocketed.
And even better – so did my clients’ income when I brought the “woo” to them.
And if you’re anything like I was, or my clients are, that concept may freak you out just a tad right now. Before you run for the hills, though, what I want you to hear is this:
You can get your business of the ground without too much work on your mindset if you just follow directions.
But to grow profitably into multi 6 and 7 figures, what’s even more important is what’s going on inside of you.
Ultimately, what many consider “woo” in its various forms, is what facilitates digging deeper. It’s what moves the obstacles, fears and emotions that get in the way of your strategies. And it allows you to start transforming the subconscious beliefs and patterns that aren’t serving you (that you may not even be aware of), find your own spiritual path, and really get to the heart of what’s true for you.
It’s about creating what YOU want and going for it without apology.
It’s about understanding that business, life, spirituality, purpose and self actualization – it’s all connected.
It’s NOT about numbing out and hiding behind magical thinking! You’ve GOT to do the work!
And this is the important piece:
Horses are part of my spiritual path, and I practice conscious horsemanship.
Actually, it’s deeper than that. It’s all about relationship and connection and honoring their space in the world as sentient beings, here to help us as humans to reach self actualization and fulfillment.
What makes the work I do extra special and unique is the addition of horses and their wisdom to my coaching, and facilitation programs.
I live with an amazing herd of 4 horses at Believe & See Ranch. A dream 2.3 million dollar property that I was able to buy and bring into my life in 2018 by applying all the “woo” & work that I teach.
And whether you work personally with me or we simply engage through content, I bring all of it together to support you in creating what you truly desire.
The tough love, practical, left brained “Naffy” is still here and you’ll still see it, because it’s part of who I am, and it’s integral to the full picture of success.
Ultimately, everything I teach is all about digging just a little bit deeper so you can climb a whole lot higher.
What do you really want? I’ll help you get it!
