Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
Wanted to be an entertainer but my family said I would never make any money so I didn't do it.
Followed the traditional path of getting a degree and a normal desk job and felt utterly miserable.
Went to a personal development seminar that made me realize that I could do what I want with my life.
Quit my master's degree program and started doing stand up comedy.
Hired a coach to help me reprogram my mind & behaviors and stepped into my authentic self.
Realized that I wanted to be a coach and pay it forward because I was so happy after being coached.
Tried to keep a normal job while building my biz, and started www.awakentherebel.com

Day to Day

Every day is different. Some days I am introverted and I write blogs, reply to email, and stay in all day. Some days are extroverted where I am networking and talking with other speakers about collaborating. Some days I am planning content for The Shereen Show, and recording video trainings for the people in my Rebel Forever Membership. Today I spoke with a casting company that is doing a pilot for powerful women in business. I also recorded videos and had lunch on the beach with a colleague.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Anything and everything that your spirit is inspired by. My stand up comedy experience taught me not to care what people think, and to welcome the adventure that is called rejection. My coaching taught me that there is always something to learn and the world is my playground. My college days taught me that studying isn't so bad when it's something you love. There is always some intrinsic value in learning, so follow your spirit, it is your perfect guide.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

Balls to the walls. Absolute and total commitment. It is so important that failure is not an option. In the beginning of doing this business I was constantly afraid of not generating enough income because then I would have to go get a job again to make do. Then I finally got to the point where I told myself getting a job was not an option, that I would make this work no matter what. And coming from that space I became more creative and focused on solutions to make it work.

The Noise I Shed

From Family:

"You should be a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer. Entertainment is not a career it's for losers. Since you are friendly and bubbly you must be a bimbo. You will never be able to make it as an entertainer. It is impossible. Entertainment is for people who are uneducated and low class. Your coaching business is ridiculous why can't you just be normal and hold down a job. There must be something wrong with you since you don't have a stable career path. Your dreams are too big."
