I’ve learned that nothing of significance is ever achieved alone.
I’m someone who has walked ALL of the talk that you’ll find on this website. And I know sacrifice as well as I know success.
When my future husband and I (we’re goin’ on 27+ years now) moved into our first apartment (1994) we had a card table and two folding chairs (all borrowed). We couldn’t afford a couch and a bed so we bought a sofa-bed and slept on that for a year or two until the springs got un-sprung. (And then we slept on the sofa-bed’s mattress on the floor. Then we got a real mattress. Then, eventually, we got a frame for that mattress. Movin’ on up!)
We didn’t have a car for a year. I walked to work and took the bus to my first student film shoot. Once, to pay my taxes, I wrote a check to the IRS for almost exactly 1/2 of all the money I had. Ours was a one-bedroom apartment but the sofa-bed (and, later, the sofa and the bed) were in the living room. (Oh yes, lots of teasing from friends about this!) But we made the “bedroom” room into our office because we knew it was the work we’d do in our office that would eventually get us into a bigger apartment. And, a couple of years later, that’s what happened. And, some years later, we made it happen again.
Overall, we were happy, hopeful, sometimes doubtful, but always consistently striving towards creating the texture of the life that we desired. We were (and still are) on each other’s team. Since then, my team has expanded: mentors, coaches, advisors, assistants, stylists, videographers, etc. Building these teams – the hiring, firing, managing of, and delegating to – is another realm in which my clients benefit from my own (smooth and not-so-smooth) experiences. And, for a few hours, a few months, or a few years, you can choose to have me on your team.
I believe that each person has the ability, at any moment in time, to change themselves – and by doing so, to change their life.
