I was working in the Pharmaceutical Industry, researching drugs, doing pretty well and working my way up the ladder. And, I was miserable.

To be successful as a woman in the science industry, you have to be willing to take a few people down on your way up, you have to watch your back, and you have to snag opportunities when they cross your path without considering other people. In the midst of all that chaos, I realized I didn’t want to become the person I was working so hard to become. In fact, I wanted quite the opposite! I needed to nurture the softer, compassionate, caring side of my person. I needed a new start. I needed a new career. Then I saw Rhonda on Starting Over.

I had never even heard of a Life Coach before, and I was so intrigued, I leaped and hired a Certified Fearless Living Coach.

It was in that process that I started working on becoming who I had always hoped and deep down, who I believed I could be. Only a few months into the work, I started to think, “Hey, maybe I could be a Coach.”

And here I am today, in touch with that softer, more compassionate, caring side of me, helping others up rather than taking them down and trusting each opportunity that comes my way as I continue to make my way up this ladder.
