How are you contributing to women's history as a Brown CEO?
I contribute everyday in the male dominated world of fitness, health and wellness. Men are the CEO, the household names but women make up 95% of the served population. At this point, we don't need to make our own table, they need to make room! I am the CEO and founder of Purpose Chasing Academy where I guide women who lack confidence and a roadmap in the fitness, health and wellness industry. I have a 5 step formula Pivot To Purpose that guides them on a journey to FIND, DEFINE and then thrive in this industry and in life. It's the time of the Woman. I was that woman who was chasing the paper and never my purpose. Morbidly obese, unemployed and unfilled, but by getting uncomfortable I was able to find my purpose through fitness! After I started chasing my purpose of coaching, I successfully worked with a gym owner to create one of the most popular fitness brands today, with over 2200 instructors worldwide and 8 DVDs produced, it's now a million dollar business.
What has been your most exciting accomplishment to date?
Through my coaching I have helped many women and men FIND, DEFINE and Thrive, but my most exciting accomplishment is when a client of mine told me how I changed her life when she joined my program. She was very good at a lot of things but she wasn't fulfilled and knew she was supposed to do more. However, she didn't know where to start and didn't even believe she could until she became a purpose chaser! Now she's thriving in her new business and she is thriving in life!
Any 2 pieces of advice you would share with emerging CEOs?
Mindset is the difference between a hobby and a million dollar business, manage your thoughts! Two be sure to have a tribe who can provide accountability and a different perspective that can help you grow.
What is next for you in 2022?
In 2022, I am claiming that everything attached to me wins! I will serve over 500 women this year, guiding them on a journey to jump off autopilot and start living in their purpose. No longer will we just exist staying comfortable in an assignment that doesn't belong to us, it's our time!
