1. What is your business?
I’m a mind and body connection expert, coach, inspirational speaker and newly published author! My brand new book Madly Chasing Peace: How I Went From Hell to Happy in 9 Minutes a Day launches tomorrow, January 8th.
2. Why did you launch this business?
I’m definitely an accidental entrepreneur! Just 4 years ago I was clinically depressed, horribly addicted to alcohol, and planned a date for my suicide. Being pinched to the point of deciding between life and death, I felt like I was literally broken open and rewired. I ended up quite unintentionally developing what I call 3×3 Meditation (3 minutes, 3 times a day) – a highly focused visualization process that I came up with solely because it was physically impossible for me to sit still for longer than 3 minutes – where I first visualized and then physically experienced complete healing from alcohol and food addictions, lost 7 pounds in 10 days, lowered my cholesterol by 50 points in 3 weeks, and transformed the way people treat me. I’ve created unique 3×3 methods I call Intuitive Eating and Pre-Forgiveness, among others.
3. What gives you your greatest pleasure in your business?
There is nothing more satisfying then letting my innermost self, the highest wisdom and inspiration I have access to, flow through me to reach, uplift and inspire others. I absolutely LOVE being a coach! I’m living a dream I never even knew I had.
4. Where have you run into challenges in your business?
The biggest challenge I’ve had is letting go one by one of each fear as it has surfaced. I’ve released fears around writing a great book, supporting myself financially as an entrepreneur, filling and conducting teleseminars, speaking in front of large groups, and of course, fear of what other people think!
5. What is a key resource that has helped you?
Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) was one of the first people who believed in my ability to write a book and earn an abundant living as a coach. He has become a friend and major supporter of me and my 3×3 Meditation process. I highly recommend reading his book The Success Principles and attending one of his live trainings if you are looking for inspiration and connection with like-minded people!
