Kickstart Your Work

Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
Finished high school and went to business school because it was the "right" next step.
Got an internship at a law firm, realized the 9-5 cubicle is NOT for me and started my first company at 19
I graduated university and kept doing digital strategy at my company. I started traveling with a 4 month trip to Europe where I realized that travel is absolutely critical for me to learn and grow
While living in Brazil in 2016 I learned how to speak Portuguese. I realized that when you decide you're going to do something that's the first step to making it happen.
I founded Kickstart Your Work, and learned that I couldn't help everyone and needed to focus on building a tribe of people that I could support and connected with so I chose women and the work niche.
Finding a professional community who supports my coaching business and my big dreams was another pivotal shift for me in my work. Knowing that I had a tribe that believed in me changed my life.
Learning to accept support and hiring team members has been a huge shift in the way I work. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do it all, but big dreams require big support.

My work combines:

Helping People

Day to Day

I go to yoga or for a walk, I make my mornings sacred and really prioritize a calm and supportive morning routine, I'll have online meetings with my team members, potential clients, and potential partners. I will batch answer my emails once or twice a day, max. I might run an online coaching session, workshop, training/class or webinar. I take a look at my ad campaigns, financial situation/responsibilities and make sure

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

I've been travelling and working online for the past 4 years and every single country I visit teaches me something new about enjoying work, how to run my business and how people work. Being open to learning and my willingness to say YES to new experiences is what comes to mind when I think of critical skills in making your dream career a reality. Saying yes and learning from ALL results (positive and challenging) is what has been the most helpful in growing my business and building success.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Give yourself permission to really go after this and then find someone who you admire and is successfully doing what you want to do and reach out to them! Learning from someone who is already doing what you want to do will help you feel that it's actually possible, and potentially give you a proven system for how to go about doing it for yourself.

Hurdles

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"You can't love the work you do and have fun. What you want to do isn't realistic, practical and can't make you any money. You will never be able to make a living on this type of work. You can't run a business effectively and don't have enough experience."
