Back in 2015 I was 34 years old, a new lawyer, newly married, and a new mom. I had been the top of my class at law school and had a phenomenal job.
And yet I was completely miserable. I didn't like the work I was doing. I didn't fit in at work. I felt invisible and unappreciated. All my worth was tied up in my performance and I was constantly living in fear of messing up.
As a result, I was overweight, drinking a bottle of wine a night, stressed, overwhelmed and, frankly, not very fun to be around. But I felt stuck since I'd invested so much time and money into law. Not to mention it was my identity.
And yet there was a voice that kept telling me life was short and, even though I didn't know how or what to do, something drastic needed to change. So, I listened to that voice. I was a bright, vibrant, loving, insightful and hilarious woman. And I started making decisions that reflected that, even if they weren't logical. I hired a coach. I left law, one of the bravest things I've ever done. I re-trained as a coach. I started my own business when I had a 3 month-old and a 3 year-old at home. I completed shifted my life from auto-pilot to on purpose and for a purpose.
I now consider myself a leader, a coach and a woman who is practicing her calling. I support my clients to see themselves as leaders and to get out there and make their difference in the world. Unlocking my potential daily, so you might unlock yours.
