Tell us about yourself
I started my business at the age of 23 years old while I was still in college and recently divorced with a four-year-old and an 11-month-old baby. Knowing I had to figure out how to raise two little girls on my own while still growing up myself, I decided to start my business in the clinical hypnosis and coaching industry. Early on, I knew I wanted to help people through life's toughest challenges.
My focus for the first 16 years was mostly on trauma and addictions. I worked with various CEOs of multi-million dollar companies and political figures, helping them get out of their own way and be the best leaders they can be. What motivates me the most is knowing that with a few tools and strategies, I can help my clients become the best versions of themselves and lead successful lives that they will be proud of.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
It can be interesting and equally challenging when you are trying to scale and grow your business in a world as competitive as the one we are seeing now.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Be committed and consistent, and know you will need to step outside your comfort zone the moment you decide to start a new business.
- Find the right community who will guide and support you through the process. We offer masterminds to help leverage these potential challenges a new business owner may face. Look for a community that will challenge you and inspires you to keep going no matter what.
