Certified Professional Career Coach, I completed my training in 2013 right after finishing my Master's degree
2013 in its entirety was life-changing. I challenged myself to say yes to some scary things. But once they were completed in 2014, I was set up to have a better 2015! It's the power of choice.
I'm a great coach! I challenge others to challenge themselves. My purpose is helping guide others to a happier, more fulfilling life!
In 2013, I had the pleasure of hearing Maya Angelou and Nikki Giovanni speak live. Both of their messages included the advice to, "say yes": take on those scary challenges and give yourself a chance to elevate to a level that you never imagined yourself being on. Never take yourself out of the running by turning down what could be a life-changing opportunity.
Not a chance. Not even a piece of a chance :0) lol
Don't be afraid to be great; the world deserves only your best self.
A domain name (I'm pretty sure those go for cheap), time to grow your personal brand!
LinkedIn; that wasn't always the case but it has become my absolute favorite network.
Hosting a workshop for a group of women in the conference room of my very own office!
Coach people to be more in-tune with their God-given inner voice. I think we'd all be happier, more compassionate, and purposeful in our daily interactions with each other.
An extra 30-minutes of quiet time in the morning. It makes a BIG difference in my day!
YahooNews, LinkedIn, The Muse, and Levo League
That's easy: Instagram and Email
Goal-setting. Every single day I make a list of daily goals and review my long-term plans. Call me a goal-getter!

The Bible - wisdom, entertainment, healing, encouragement, tragedy all in one.
Saturday is my fun day (eating out, shopping, an outdoor activity, movies, date with my fiancé, or an outing with friends) and Sunday is my preparation day (rest, exercise, church, grocery shopping, cleaning, weekly planning)
Knowing that my life makes a difference in the lives of others. I'm needed.
Not living out my scariest and most fabulous dreams!
Prayer, it gives me the clarity of mind that I need to find the right answer. It always makes me feel more confident about what comes next.
Ask questions, even the ones that you think are dumb. There are so many older, more experienced professionals that have AMAZING wisdom to share but you'll never get it if you don't ask. Connect with people on LinkedIn, get a career coach, and find a mentor. But also SEARCH for information. Not everything will come easily, things are not always obvious, and sometimes there is no way to avoid working hard. Don't be afraid to dig for information. You can't cheat the hustle.
Learning an instrument, something like the violin

Blogging! Surprisingly, it is pretty addictive for me so I try not to start unless I have ample time to find my "flow"
