When did you start your blog/business?
Inspired Life Media Group launched in 2010
What triggered you to pursue your dreams and begin creating the life you want?
I was dissatisfied with my life and started to feel like a victim of my circumstances. Rather than dwell on the things that were wrong, I decided to start doing some personal development. That was the single most important decision I made. My life is not completely different, and I’m much more satisfied overall.
What do you enjoy most about living life on your own terms?
I enjoy the freedom. My lifestyle comes with a lot of responsibility for the outcomes, but it also comes with the freedom of being able to change the course of things at any time.
How are you living out your purpose?
I’m working in industries I love on projects and businesses that inspire and fulfill me.
Describe an a-ha moment.
One night, I realized that death could happen at any time. We aren’t promised tomorrow and none of us really know how much time we have to pursue our dreams and do the things that matter to us. That was the turning point for me to get serious about setting and achieving my goals.
What does being free mean to you?
Being free means having options.
What has been your biggest challenge pursuing your purpose?
The biggest challenge has been staying focused on outcomes and being patient with the processes.
What is your biggest fear? And how do you overcome your fears?
My biggest fear is not fulfilling my potential as a person. I overcome that fear every day by taking action toward the things that are important to me. Action is the best fear repellant.
How do you stay encouraged?
I read positive things at the start and end of my day. I also spend time in gratitude for my blessings.
What are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of the woman I’ve become as I’ve moved toward my ideal life. I’ve had to grow in very significant ways in order to be, do, and have more of what I wanted. I still have some growing to do, but I can honestly say that I genuinely like myself and who I’ve become. I’m proud to be comfortable in my own skin.
How do you support other women?
I write books, speak, and create content in addition to privately mentoring and supporting women. I have a long track record of investing in the success of other women and being a champion for women working collaboratively.
What is your favorite affirmation or quote?
Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
