Success and Alignment didn't happen overnight.
At the time, while I was running a successful house music blog, interviewing the biggest DJs from around the world, living the life of any 23 year old's dream, there was a deep void I couldn't bypass any longer. If I wanted to live the life I always desired, I was going to have to get to work and do the REAL work.
Growing up with severe depression and PTSD, I did my best to be the light, but truth was, I was in such pain. I had deep, unprocessed trauma, found myself in abusive relationships, and even found myself calling a suicide hotline. All in all, I was a hott mess who needed a reset.
Giving it all up, I devoted my heart and soul to embody the most authentic and truest version of me. Truth was, I couldn't serve others wholeheartedly if I didn't first learn how to serve myself, my needs, and more importantly, my inner child first. I had to learn how to fill my cup, heal the wounds of my past and my lineage, while learning how to best honor my boundaries and energy if I wanted to experience true success in the Golden Era and my business.
Along the way, I learned that if you want to succeed in these changing times, you too must evolve and shift. That means getting radically honest about old habits, beginning to rewrite stories from your past are still running the show, and to do the deep work to heal the wounds and childhood traumas once and for all.
Like many others, I ingested everything I could about all things spirituality and fell for the "love and light" trap of deep spiritual bypassing.
You have to understand something, many people who are just embarking on the spiritual path are doing so because they hit a rock bottom. For me, I had zero confidence. All my trauma and wounds were open, I didn't know where I belonged, and most of all, I was ready to finally break free from the shackles and reclaim my sovereignty once and for all.
After years of visiting healers around the world, reading hundreds of books, partaking in countless medicine journeys, and all the certifications and courses around, it wasn't until I stopped looking for answers outside of myself and started to learn to trust myself and my intuition that I was able to finally ascend and align to my full, authentic power.
While my Marketing Professor back at Chapman University anointed me with the name "Marketing Machine," my passion for brand development and market strategy has always reigned supreme. Essentially, what kept me moving and going during the dark night of the soul moments was that I knew I had a massive mission to live out here on this planet and I wanted to help those who knew they had a bigger purpose to fulfill.
in 2012, my pup Bud and I were struck by lightning. yep, you read that right.
