When I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter, I was still living in my parents basement. About a month after she was born, I found out that my parents house was for sale. I was jobless and now going to be homeless with a new baby so I pooled all of my money together and moved into — what I later found out was — a condo that was infested with black mold. The floor was falling apart, there were no baseboards on half of the walls, there was mildew growing up the walls...
I NEVER in a million years thought that I would be here. Who grows up as a little girl thinking “yes, that’s exactly the situation I would love to be in as an adult with my newborn daughter.” ?
My baby... she was so beautiful and she was my responsibility — she was mine. I was so terrified to my core about her future as well as mine. It was at that time that I drew a line in the sand. I decided it was up to me and nobody else. Nobody else could rewrite my story but me. It was not going to be easy and I didn’t know how I was going to do it. I was completely scared but I had to do it anyway. I had to do it messy. I had to be brave because my future 100% depended on me and the choices that I would make.
The moment it all became clear is still so fresh to me—sitting on my bedroom floor, taking the last $20 I had to my name out of a bible I got as a little girl to buy groceries and diapers for my 2 month old bebe, desperately trying to figure out how everything had gone so drastically off course for my life. I was so scared and I was angry at myself that I let myself even get to that position in the relationships, the financial situation, the thought that I was going to amount to something big.
So I started my first business in the health and wellness industry with a network marketing company. I loved their products, I loved their workouts, I lost all of the baby weight.
Life was on top of the world. Everything was so good and I put one foot in front of the other and I learned how to do it and I did not quit. I did not quit when it got hard. I did not quit when I got told “no” over and over and over again. I didn’t quit when I didn’t have the money or I didn’t have the time or the support. I didn’t quit when I didn’t have whatever excuse I could have let happen. I pushed forward. I did the thing. I stayed positive. I learned what I needed to learn and I became quite successful in that business. I hit so many goals that I could have only ever dreamed possible. I was able to create the most beautiful life of stability and financial freedom for my family. I was able to learn enough about myself — about boundaries and triggers.
So much personal development that I was forced to do in that business allowed me to walk away from relationships that no longer served me and to stick up for myself. I’m so grateful that I’m able to sit here today and tell you this story about how my life turned around because I decided. I just decided. At some point you just have to decide that life gets to be different for you and there’s so many avenues that will allow you to change and do that.
So I ran with the business. I did all the things. I married the love of my life. We bought our home. Life has never been so beautiful.
I’ve learned how to leave the toxic habits, self sabotage and the substance use and take care of my body and learn how to move my body and come into my spiritual body. More recently, I have stepped into another scary place and started a completely new brand and new company and that’s when the Empower Project came to life.
Everything that I could have ever dreamed of in a community of women who hold space for each other and who stick up for each other. We learn together, we build businesses and babies and all of the crazy things and it has just been so incredible.
I was always uneducated. I was always unfunded. I was always stepping into the unknown. Every business that I have started, both this one and the first one I started, walking away from the relationships, setting boundaries, listening to my intuition and being my soul whispers to life — I didn’t have education, I didn’t have a mentor, I didn’t have money, I didn’t have time. But what I DID have was an absolute unwavering belief in the possibility that life gets to be different. I was just going to rewrite the rules and I was going to do it differently.
The deeper I went and the more I learned about myself, the more it forced me outside of my comfort zone + opened up MANY stories I had been carrying through my life that crafted my reality. I studied mentors whose life I wanted my life to mimic. I dove deep into my spiritual journey. I surrendered and trusted the process of growth.
Fast forward to today:
I've scaled my business to 7-figures, gotten handfuls of certifications; finished out my practitioner level for NLP, EFT, clinic hypnosis - which are all beautiful Neuro Mindset subconscious re-coding and rewiring tools. I also got light leader Kundalini certified - which is modernized Kundalini for modernized women and it’s bringing these very sacred ancient technologies for the body and modernizing them for us and our busy lives and crazy businesses.
Learning and integrating these tools into my own life has been crazy you guys - like the stuff that has happened in my own life my own business has just been like mind blowing. We went from 4K months to 65K+ months in less than a year.
Now, my job, my mission, is to empower visionary women to know that they can bravely step into the unknown too. Let the mess happen, be scared, create dreams, and turn the impossible into absolutely freaking doable with a little bit of grit, a little bit of hard work, and a whole lot of aligned vision and action. Just take the first step into the fog, into the unknown, to find clarity. Over and over again. Guiding them back to their power and helping them cultivate an internal environment for success through energy work, kundalini, self-discovery and uncovering their Dharma. Guiding them to really coming home to who they are and who they were meant to be when they’re put on this earth.
You are not ever given the dream without the possibility. You’re not ever given the dream without the soul whispers on how to do it. You’re never given the dream or desire on your heart without being given a way to do it. Yes it’s going to be messy. Yes it’s going to be crazy and you’re going to feel crazy. But you’re NEVER given it without being given a possibility.
