What I've learned you need to start an Online Business.

Too often in coaching sessions people tell me they fantasize about escaping their current job or career. That their unhappiness and symptoms of depression are nothing but a byproduct of what they do for a living. And if the job were just to change, well then they’d find themselves living a completely different life. The intrigue of leaving the old behind and running to something new and exciting, chasing “freedom”, it's more than tempting. I know, I impulsively chased it and it was the best decision I ever made. Hard as hell at times but worth it. Which brings me to why I am writing this. There are small moments of glitz and glamour in this entrepreneur online world, which is what it being shown to you (social media). Awareness of what's behind the curtain will save you from blindly jumping towards it. 

The key to finding your purpose.

Ever feel like you’re floating from one job, one career to the next? Take it from someone who has done just that. The ridiculous amount of jobs I had in my twenties:

Fitness Instructor, undercover researcher, waitress, event planner for the olympics, real estate project manager, tennis instructor, communications coordinator, key leader at lululemon, nutritionist, life coach…All while floating from one degree to the next, 3 in total and countless certifications.

All the time spent aimlessly wandering from job to job, yet I knew exactly what I wanted: to work for myself. I just didn’t know how or when, but I knew I was meant for it.

Why overeating is not your fault and what to do about it.

As you may have heard me confess before, I have struggled in the past with binge eating. It became my full time job trying to solve the problem, I could bore you with all of the tactics, tools and things I tried but why don’t we cut to the fact that the biggest shift happened when I realized:

How to start using social media, instead of watching others use it.

How often are you meeting up with old friends and potential new friends in person? And how much time are you scrolling social media? The reality is scary. The time spent on our phones is only increasing. Instead of trying to resist what is happening in today's culture, embrace it. Use social media to connect. Here's how:

Ready to be judged.

I’ll never forget the day I was teaching a fitness class and one of the students came up to me after. With a washed out look on her face, “I think there is something you should see”. I was confused but agreed to give her my email address. I went home that day and received an email with a link. Curiously I clicked the link and instantly started hyper ventilating. It was me.
