I've always been the girl that believed there was MORE to life.
I was walking down a road of shame, depression, misery, and debt. I was a broke reporter and in all reality, there wasn’t much room for growth. I was getting comfortable with the $500 paychecks every two weeks and while I could barely afford to eat, I wouldn't allow myself to believe that this life was all I would EVER have.
After prayer, determination, and a decision to CHANGE, it's like God heard my call. An opportunity showed up in my newsfeed. It was scary, different, and I knew it would require hard work. But if I am being honest with you? I was more scared of staying the same. My back was against the wall, live like this for the next 50 years or make a change. In that moment, I knew I had absolutely nothing to lose. So I spent the last $160 I had on a program and a shake that at the minimum, would help me feel good about myself again.
It started as a hobby. I promised myself I would give it one year. I knew you couldn’t build something in 3 weeks, 6 months, or 9. It has to be a year of WORK. Not coasting. So I showed up every day in some capacity.
Haters came, doubters filled my pages, people were mean to me, hurt my feelings, laughed at me, told me I was crazy. But I kept my head down and followed my gut instinct. I was placed here for a reason and I needed to follow through on my commitment. I loved the feeling of helping someone else. Results, business, whatever it was. I knew I found my calling and I needed to give this to as many people as possible. As time went on, the work continued, and the payoff followed.
Paychecks began to grow and before I knew it, after just THREE years in the business- I had given myself a 1240% monthly raise and it was still rising with no downward slope in sight.
I've now been an entrepreneur going on six years and my life has completely transformed. I've used my health and fitness business to open up new platforms for me, such as starting the Control Freak Podcast and mentoring other women to build at home businesses like I did.
My one crazy decision to jump into the unknown has given my husband and I a life we never could have even imagined. In six years, I've been able to leave that full time job, lead my team to the top of the company, purchase a home in Charlotte, NC, fight through infertility treatments which has now led us to anxiously awaiting the arrival of our baby girl. We have paid off debt, got in the best shape of our lives, and we are able to give BACK to those in need.
I'm beyond committed to helping more people create the life that's been waiting for them. I know that every trial and struggle I faced happened for a reason and that's exactly what brought you HERE.
It’s my passion and purpose to help others. It’s my hope that I get to help you!
