After college, I got my first “real” job. I worked as a graphic designer in the marketing department for a huge national engineering firm, creating technical graphics and working on proposals. The office was downtown Seattle, and for a fresh 23-year-old graduate, the excitement of being in the big city every day was amazing. About one year in, the excitement began to wear off. The 2 hour daily commute exhausted me, I was bored, stagnant, and questioning if there was something more to life.
Enter my first life coach.
Within a year of working together, I quit my job, moved back into my parent’s house to save money, bought a ticket to Europe and traveled solo for about 6 weeks.
I got back feeling empowered and ready to take on the world. I launched my graphic design business and it was a major flop. My desire for freedom pushed me from one extreme to the other, I jumped out of the corporate cubicle world and into being my own boss and having ultimate freedom. I wasn’t ready for this big of a leap quite yet.
Back to the job search, I ended up landing a job at a creative agency. It was the opposite of the stuffy corporate office. We had exposed brick walls, beer in the fridge, an open floor plan, and creative collaboration. The environment had the makings of a perfect job. A couple of years in, my desire for more flexibility and time freedom came back. This time was different though. I had been building my business on nights and weekends, working with more clients, learning about how to actually run a business.
A couple more coaches, weekend retreats, and live events later, here I am.
I took the leap in February 2019 and haven’t looked back since. Today, I get to help coaches who are on a mission to make a difference in the world. My clients are committed to creating impact and contributing their gifts and I feel excited and honored to get to work with them.
