Tell me if this sounds familiar:
You’re a hard working, driven professional committed to advancing in your career. But the more time you spend at work, the more guilty you feel spending time away from loved ones, other hobbies, or other opportunities for personal growth.
Or maybe it’s this: You’re active in your community and dedicated to the social and familial relationships in your life. But the deeper you work to forge those connections, the further away you drive yourself from your professional passions and desires.
I’ll be the first to say that the myth of the work-life balance has pulled the wool over my eyes. I spent years thinking it had to be one or the other – work, or life?
Personal, or professional? Eventually, unexpected health challenges sidelined me from both work and life.
The stress of chasing down a philosophy that’s no longer relevant in today’s world left me feeling physically and mentally drained.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
I had the education of my CPA, CMA designation, the experience of executing and delivering high level strategy as a CFO, COO, and CEO, and the expertise of steering companies in distress in a direction of growth and stability.
But it was ultimately my passion for helping others reconnect to their own priorities and desires that led me to the path of integrative coaching and mentorship.
After years of getting caught in the either-or struggle, I did the hard (and heart) work of figuring out what balance really looks and feels like. I developed an integrative approach to business and life, and I realized that I knew how to help others to do the same.
