Right out of college, I began a career in Corporate America-- planning to follow the traditional path of working my way up the corporate ladder and paying into my 401k. The problem was, I was only a few years in and already so burned out, so miserable, and I couldn't imagine 40 years of spending so much of my life this way.

And what the heck was going to happen once my husband and I started a family? I was going to see my co-workers more than my children?? Or sacrifice half of our household's income?

Nothing about this model of work worked for me. Something inside me was so desperate for more and was sure it was out there. I had to find a better path.

It became very clear to me early on that I was an entrepreneur at heart and needed to pave my own path. And ever since I started, I've tried to take as many other people with me as possible. I've been coaching other entrepreneurs for over 10 years in developing any skill they were interested in that I had already studied and mastered. 

Since 2009, I've run several different types of businesses from ecommerce, to being a social media manager, blogging, coaching, running an Etsy shop, and now primarily my podcast, courses and Etsy coaching. I've also worked with and coached a hundreds of different people with different entrepreneurial paths.
