When I was 34 years old I had a heart attack and spent five days in the hospital. I had three children between the ages of 2 and 13 years and hadn’t realized the journey I was about to go through would be challenging.
For 18 months I experienced daily chest pains that were a mystery. My employer and disability company thought it was mental health issues and I was not able to work until I found a very skilled cardiologist. She diagnosed me with Vaso-Spastic Angina and the career I had known for nearly a decade came to a permanent end.
By the end of this journey, some beautiful things had evolved. I had built an international podcast, overcome anxiety and learned how to manage stress. Having had the privilege to interview many successful people that had overcome tremendous obstacles and been given a second chance in life inspired me a great deal and allowed me to help others just beginning their journey.
Earl Nightingale said we must first define what success means to us and described it as, “The progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.”
Seeing how many of the people I interviewed were life coaches introduces me to the world of helping others. I decided to become a certified life coach and start my own business. Today I help professionals and businesses to live lives they love, sleep better, think clearer and experience less stress and anxiety.
