My road in life took a while to figure out.
First I studied what I was interested in but others were WAY more into architecture than I was.
Then I followed my husband to another new province. My job taught how to organize priorities / action.
Then I studied fashion design because my friend suggested it.
Then I moved again, modelled, designed, taught, managed people, merchandised, started a business.
Then I worked in fashion, modelled, illustrated and shot photos. Falling in love, I moved provinces.
Got depressed because I wasn't around enough people and I'm an extrovert. Got hired by big company.
Then I studied psychology and literature which I dug. Worked 2-3 jobs and started 2 businesses.
Company and helped to grow that biz. Started my own biz--10 years, joined a big co. learned a ton.
Keep following my journey

Day to Day

In the morning, we'd playfully facilitate a group session focusing on designing a path to a new career or a stronger business. Creative game play, provocative questions and enthusiastic support of each person's unique value. In the afternoon, we'd dive deep into discovery with one-on-one sessions uncovering dreams and visions, removing barriers, and using heart to draw us forward. On a really good day, we'd join an idea salon and learn from super smart folks.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Learn how to think for yourself while folding in the best of what you've learned from others. Public speaking is invaluable. A good sense of humour collapses barriers and draws people to you--a powerful relationship building skill. Storytelling helps people absorb your message and story writing to distill your truth.

The Noise I Shed

From Family:

"If people said discouraging things, I didn't hear them. My mom told me not to move all my stuff into the new city until I was sure I wanted to live there. That was good advice."
