“Be Resilient. Everything Happens For A Reason.”
My Dad Would Say
My parents came from the old country. My dad was Swiss and my Mom was French. I was the first person in my family to be born in America. My Dad started a textile business in Greenville, South Carolina in the 1970s and with a few thousand dollars to his name created a multi-million-dollar business. My dad was my hero.
I started working for my dad when I was 11 years old. I started learning about entrepreneurship and building businesses at a young age. My Dad’s love languages were SUCCESS, HARD WORK, and PRECISION.
One of the most important things I learned from my Dad was the importance of maintaining a positive outlook on everything in life, no matter the circumstances, and even amidst tragedy. His mantra was “Everything happens for a reason.” My dad was my first mentor and my first introduction to Mindpower.
At 16 years old, my whole world was falling apart. My brother (my best friend) went off to school. My birth mother had been long gone for years and my step-mom left my Dad. My Dad left on a sabbatical and never came back. On top of all that, my girlfriend had just broken up with me. One of my favorite sayings is, “In order for the new to be built, the old must crumble.” Boy was my world crumbling!
My motto to myself was, “Be Resilient.”
This was when I started my first business… mowing lawns. And as my world was falling apart, I was asked if I could help other people put their lives back together. The principal at my high school asked me to become a Natural Helper, which meant I was going to be trained to coach people at my school out of crises and hardships.
This was when I started really understanding Mindpower and would step into my purpose, which is to make a positive impact on the world. I knew I was put here to help others… Be Resilient.
At 21 years old I began to leverage both my business building experience and coaching experience to become a highly-decorated INTRApreneur within some of the country's top Fortune 500 companies.
I made my first million dollars in my mid-20s by outworking all of my competitors and by consistently reminding myself to… Be Resilient.
Now I’m on a mission, with my partner, Shay, to positively impact the lives of 1 Billion people by helping them increase their mental toughness and emotional resilience.
Why? Because the individuals who have mental toughness and emotional resilience are the most successful people in the world. They are the exception who choose to… Be Resilient.
I grew up in a rural town outside of Reno, NV in a blue-collar family. I have a brother 6 years older than me who was my hero. I was a tomboy and played a lot of sports growing up and I was even the only girl on a boy’s little league team.
It wasn’t until my early 20s when I would start to grasp the idea of what Mindpower was, what my purpose was, or when I started helping others. Shortly after landing my dream job in my dream industry, I was laid off during the dot com bust of the early 2000s. I became depressed and stopped taking care of myself. I started drinking a lot and eating for comfort. My health took a digger and I gained about 35 pounds.
Then one day I woke up!
I decided to make a change, and that I could BE more, that I could DO more, and that I could HAVE more. I was flipping through a fitness magazine and became inspired by the fitness model, Jamie Eason. I decided I wanted to get healthy and fit. I took this magazine into an MMA fighting gym and walked up to the lead Trainer and said, “Can you make me look like this?” He asked me, “Why?” I said, “I want to be more confident, and I need help doing this.” My new trainer said, "OK, let’s do it!”
It took me a lot of Mindpower, mental toughness, emotional resilience, discipline, and MASSIVE ACTION. And… I got my goal!
I lost all the extra weight, got in the best shape of my life, and most importantly, unlocked my confidence that was hiding inside. I had the opportunity to become a fitness model and represent some companies so I went for it! Shortly thereafter, a lot of women came to me asking me how I did it? They started asking ME for help. This was the first time in my life that others were asking for my help. I was inspired to help them, and this is where I unlocked my purpose, which is to help others become the best version of themselves.
