People often ask me how you got into coaching.
To summarize my childhood, there was a lot of comparing myself to others feelings of inadequacy lack of self-worth and just a whole lot of self judgment.
Growing up living off of food stamps, I always had the scarcity mindset. I think my love for food and why I became a Nutrition major in college was that I felt like I never had the proper Nutritional knowledge to eat healthy. I did not value my health as much. Part of it was I just didn’t have the knowledge to even learn what saturated fats were and how your body works.
I became obsessed with learning, reading every book I possible can. People that know me when I become passionate about something whether it’s cross fit, coaching or whatever I put my mind to. I do with a ton of passion and ton of energy.
I have always struggled with money, money was a topic that was tough for my family.
My dad left us when I was young, I think 12 or 13. I can’t even remember. I just remember that the day it happened, everything in my life changed. I had to work 40 hours a week while putting myself through high school and college.
Anyone that knows me knows I always had 3 different jobs while going to school full time, whether it’s waiting tables, selling knives in high school, knocking door to door selling Verizon Fios. I have done it all. I am proud of myself coming a long way from working at Quizno’s to having the privilege to sell Enterprise software.
This is pretty embarrassing for me to admit, but even though I seem to show a lot of my success on Facebook and social media. My life is a wreck financially. I am doing a life coaching program that really has changed my life. Everyone that knows me knows I am a true giver. Like in Adam Grant’s Give and take. I am always helping out others. Whether it’s random people that reach out to me or people asking me to help them with their resumes. I never ask for anything in return.
But I am at a place in my life with 90k in student debt plus maxed out credit cards.
I feel like I am at a place in my life where all I can think about is my debts and it really has consumed my life.
I was at a place in my life with severe depression. I was living on my own in a random state in the middle of nowhere. (CT) didn’t know anyone and I felt like I was such a failure.
Until recently, I started to find my passion coaching and helping others really seeing the shift in their lives. It’s been so amazing! I am at a point where I feel purpose again.
I went on vacation this year for the first time in 4 years. Anyone that truly knows me, I have always had money problems. I have taken some actions to just be more self-aware like creating a budget and using spreadsheets.etc. I would love any help in conquering this area of my life.
It is scary for me to share you all my true insecurities, because I do at times seem like I have it all figured out.
Any amount at all. So I am going to post on my social media. If anyone just donates 1 dollar. It would mean the world to me. I would be able to continue my passion and my vision for spreading the message and help everyone believe in themselves. I think we are all connected and that I have recently found my mission in life. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you are not able to donate, if you can spread the message and share I would be internally grateful for your help. Even reading this makes me feel better.
