These pics were taken August 2014 when I just moved out (through choice!) of my brand new spacious 3 bedroom townhouse which I lived in until I was 29.
Anyway, back then I worked in corporate as primary therapist & physiologist and made enough to afford the nice new house. So why did I NOT WANT it?
Why was I willing to “sacrifice” my space and downsize so massively?🤔
You'd think someone entering their 30's would be wanting to upgrade to a bigger & better house🏡, not downsizing to live in a 390 square foot rental from the 1940’s!😵
Well, I had a deep desire to re-sculpt my life in such a powerful way. I wanted to not only be a financially prosperous woman, but also to become an entrepreneur. I desired FREEDOM to work for myself. I also decided I was going to become a millionaire..… so how was I going to get there?
My vision for life was not about looking for a short-term quick fix to feel better (example: upgrade vehicles or house or buy new clothes).
My vision was all about the LONG-TERM and asking myself "what am I willing to do to achieve ALL OF MY DESIRES & have zero regrets?"
For me, I listed to my inner guidance that said step 1 is to become a landlord and rent out your townhouse to start growing your net worth. My inner guidance told me "find the cheapest rental & start making $ on the property you own" so I did.
So when I sold all my things (because my new rental studio only had space for a kitchen table & bed!!) most of the world thought I was nuts🤪. I had people message me asking me "are you okay, what is happening to you?”
It doesn’t help I sustained a traumatic brain injury in 2013 that led some to suspect I really had a problem with decision making.
Most people (not all) could not imagine taking such a sacrifice and living with so little - but for me, I could not imagine living the rest of my life to a lesser degree than I knew was possible for me.
So I lived there, in that TINY shoebox apartment for 2 years.
In that time, despite lack of space, I felt more spacious, inspired and AWAKE than ever before!
During that time, I built and launched my Bodycherish High Vibration Skincare🌿🌸by November 2015. Yes, the company started in that space!!!
During that time, I bought a 2nd property... a luxury high-end condo… and then a 3rd property (one I eventually moved into).
During that time, I also got the inspired idea to become an online mentor & program/course creator.. which lead me to quit my corporate career & launch my new business by March 2017!💗🙌🏻
You see, I grew up EXTREMELY POOR & could have easily been another statistic - but I made a decision to write myself a new story, throw a plot twist and become anything I decided to be💃🏻👊🏻
Flash forward to today, I have 3 rental properties, 3 sets of tenants, 2 separate businesses earning multiple 6 figures and most importantly, the FREEDOM I knew I had to have when I made one of the best decisions of my life (deciding to move into that tiny 390 square foot apartment).
Oh yes, people thought I was crazy for sure!
To me, what would be crazy is STILL slaving away at a job I did not love, that was not my higher calling in life.
To me, what would be crazy is NOT choosing to become prosperous & struggling to make ends meet each month.
To me, what would be crazy is spending all my money for SHORT-TERM rewards versus keeping my eyes on the prize for where I am destined to go in life.
Successful entrepreneurs have 1 think in common. They take BOLD AF action that many are not comfortable taking.
Entrepreneurs often go into debt to build their empires (or live very humbly) in the beginning because they 🔥believe in their dream and the long term vision that lies ahead🔥
If you are looking for support getting your entrepreneurial passion &/or coaching business taken to the next level of financial success, working with the right clients and customers in your unique zone of genius but do not have the time to work with a mentor for months at a time, then you are a perfect candidate for the brand new: VIP 40-DAY PREMIUM BUSINESS ACCELERATOR (1:1)!!

Bodycherish turned 2 years old on November 1st, 2017!!
But let me tell you, well before this company became a reality, my life was in a completely different place. You see, about nearing 5 years ago my life was...really, really shitty (going through a divorce, unhealthy drinking habits, losing my house and a traumatic brain injury resulting in the loss of my smell).
It was that chaos that triggered me along my journey of self-development, exploration and most importantly SELF-LOVE. Programs, courses, workshops, you name it and I was in it. The more I invested into myself, the better my life got. I started to believe in possibilities that I never-ever even dreamed of before.
This new belief system allowed me to move forward on my inspired idea to create a high vibrational skincare line (made with the healing power of crystal essences). This idea came to me on November 15th, 2014, while in Sedona during a nature-filled road trip. Bodycherish launched 1 year later on November 1, 2015, followed by my energy healing practice in May 2016 and my empowerment coaching in March 2017.
I share this story to show you an example on how ideas CAN & WILL come to LIFE if you believe it is possible. I could have come home and brushed the idea aside and convinced myself that is was silly and too far-fetched. Thank God I did not allow my ego/fear to win because otherwise I would still be trapped in my soul-sucking corporate career and not living up to my true potential and life purpose.....and guess what?
We all have UNLIMITED POTENTIAL within us, including YOU reading this. If you are alive and breathing, you have a purpose & a reason for being here. Not only that, YOU DESERVE to feel joyful, inspired, happy and FREE!
