How did I go from Investment Banking to Professional Writer to Internet Entrepreneur to Spiritual Mentor? Because I can. I go where life takes me but when it feels ‘right.’ I follow my passion. I can say that I was privileged to work on some important and notable projects from television series, to movies both big screen and television, Broadway plays, and touring events, but with that privilege came real effort and drive. That is simply life. It takes effort. What you think and believe drives that.
I am often asked how I manage to live such an exciting life and my answer to that is that I “Just Do It!” Anyone can live an exciting, satisfying life. I don’t overthink things and even when I’m petrified, I plunge into fearful situations regardless. I often seem to achieve the impossible. My secret? I have an understanding with “Fear.” I don’t run from it or blame it for my disappointments. I took charge of my life and told both my ego and fear that they no longer made my decisions for me.
I go after things that I desire regardless of the odds while others convince themselves that they can’t possibly achieve the impossible – so they never try. My core belief is that somewhere deep down I know that I DO have a chance. Everyone does. There are no failures. Listen to my interview on Voice Of America.
I illustrated, wrote books and won awards as early as age 10 with The Young Authors Award a State wide honor. While I was at a University accepting my award, my teacher, Mrs. Dill told my classmates that they were in the presence of a famous writer. Did she know, or did she plant the seed that helped me to believe? Words are powerful. Remember that, because your words can change someone’s life and your own.
I was a professional cheerleader (NBA and Pro Soccer), a writer on Capitol Hill, a business owner from age 19, traveled extensively, lived and worked overseas, taught myself German and earned several scholarships, then ended up as an investment banker. I worked with the rich and famous, professional athletes, on big real estate projects, startup companies, franchises, Broadway plays, screenplays and movie deals. I flew on private jets, met celebrities, and funded some well known projects with names you’d know. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot and met some awesome people, and some real crooks too.
After years of stress, and long hours, the excitement wore off and I came to the realization that I didn’t love my career. But changing careers after 20 years isn’t an easy task. Be careful of what you ask for, because the Universe is listening! Both my parents died within a short period and I was in charge of handling the estate details. It was an overwhelming task that required my attention daily. I had no choice but to halt my own work, but something happened. I didn’t miss my career and I knew that this was my opportunity to make a big change. I took it. I finished writing a book that had been sitting around for 2 years and published it in four months. I got a interior design degree, something I’ve always loved, and started designing homes. Somehow, everything just worked out! And my life changed. Again.
I made my publisher’s best seller list, won two awards and got the story optioned for a movie. Within a few months, I got the call from my agent with the news that we were ‘green lit” (a term indicating that the option was triggered and the movie would be filmed). All within one year with a first try – an unusual achievement, my agent told me. I wasn’t surprised. It was one of endless probabilities that I brought into my reality. That isn’t a skill, it’s who and what you are. Unlimited.
It’s never too late to change your life, to shake up things and go after your dreams. There are no excuses. Not age, or education, or money, or your bad breaks as a kid. Only you decide how your life story plays out.
I learned Internet Marketing when I realized that the world, individuals, and businesses flourish online and that it offered a life of financial and time freedom. And something happened along the way. I launched a YouTube Channel that became popular. I had decided that I needed to share my secrets with others and to let them know that there are no secrets, just a realization of what they are. I found myself wanting to empower others, and a whole new life opened up for me. Here I am. Would you like to join me in a life of passion and excitement where you can speak freely and go after your dreams, no matter what the world thinks? We are the path finders and we are changing the world by finding our own voice and our own joy.
Joy, passion, abundance and peace is not reserved for a few. It exists for everyone. It exists for YOU! Isn’t it time to go after that life? Isn’t it time to change that last breath scenario that is in your future, from “Why didn’t I?” to “Damn! I did it!” My mission is to open doors to positive change for everyone willing to listen, learn, and most of all take action. Yes, it will take a total mind shift, effort and most of all daily maintenance. Isn’t it worth it? You get to decide. I hope you choose happiness!
