Six years ago...I was in heavy duty therapy, a hairstylist at the top salon in Seattle and performing stand up comedy for the first time in Seattle, WA.  I was on anti-depressants and using drugs and alcohol to deal with life. 

Five years ago...I was still in therapy, still doing hair, MISERABLE, and hosting a stand up comedy show in Tacoma, WA.  Two months later I was fired from the salon.  My drinking and drug use increased as I had much more time on my hands and less responsibilities. 

Four years ago... I was waiting tables again, unhappy in my current relationship, in serious group therapy, and doing freelance work that was draining and causing me major anxiety.  I coped by using ridiculous amounts of marijuana and drinking vodka + apple juice out of plastic kids cups while I was working in the restaurant.    

Three years ago...I hopped on a plane and moved to the Cayman Islands.  I knew 2 people, didn't have a job lined up and no backup plan.  I just knew I needed a new life and ANYTHING was better than what I had been doing.  I knew that unless I did something DRASTIC, my life was going to be the same.  

Two years ago...I was 6 months sober, dealing with my depression and anxiety without drugs and alcohol, and had started Yoga Teacher Training.  I was waiting tables and getting increasingly anxious to figure out what I was meant to be doing with my life. 

One year ago...I was in my first Life Coach Training Program and saying yes to my first pro bono client.  I had no idea what my niche was going to be, just that I wanted to help women reach their goals.  I was healing from a shattered wrist that happened in February 2015, and had 9 weeks off of work to get really clear on my goals and dreams.  

My plans to be a yoga instructor were derailed, but I realize now that perhaps the fracture occured because that was not my dharma, my path.

Two days ago...I said goodbye to waiting tables once and for all!!  I clocked out from the restaurant and said HELLO to my new life as a Digital Nomad and Entrepreneur.  I have finally done what I set out to achieve: create my dream business, work for myself and travel the world!!  

Today...I am a full time Life + Marketing Coach for new female entrepreneurs.  I help women build their online businesses from the ground up.  

When I moved to the island three years ago, I had no idea how I was going to get to where I wanted to be, I just knew WHAT I wanted.  

Once you put your dreams out into the Universe, the rest is handled.  

I had faith.  I didn't get caught up in the HOW.  It was none of my business.  I just focused on the WHAT.  I created vision boards, started doing mindset work and focused on what I wanted and how I wanted to feel when I got there.  

When I'm working with clients, I always encourage them to FOCUS ON THE WHAT.  Get crystal clear on your goals, your desires, how you want to feel and the rest will be taken care of!

If I had focused on the HOW, do you think I would have factored in shattering my wrist and an insurance settlement that ultimately made it possible for me to start my own business?  

Nope.  

Would I have factored in connecting with a powerful Sisterhood at Inner Glow Circle, completing their Glow Coach Training Program and joining their Leadership Team six months later?  

One year ago I didn't even know they existed!

So my loving advice to you is: Stop worrying about the HOW and get to work on your WHAT!
