“I’m going to have to let you go,” my boss said.
“You’ve been listening to entrepreneurship podcasts & planning workouts while at work.” I couldn’t argue with her, it was the truth.
Back in 2017, I was trying to use my technical writing degree at my desk job working for a start-up, and trying to keep my identity as an emerging fitness coach a secret. At first, my heart sunk as my ego couldn’t believe that I was getting fired. As soon as I got let go from that job, I felt a sense of relief.
I didn’t have to hide my burning desire for starting a business and being a fitness coach any longer.
My first love as a coach was in fitness. I also had overcome 6 years of binge eating disorder and healed my relationship with food. I knew that there were so many others that were silently struggling just as I had, and I was grateful to help them with their relationship with food, their bodies, and their mindset.
As I grew my fitness coaching clients, I started to build a community. I learned strategies I continually use today to help my clients succeed.
I wrote an Amazon bestseller called “Fit Through Love” and started my own podcast. My business was going well and I had several high ticket clients.
I should have felt successful, but I felt stuck after just a few years.
I felt like I had gold within me, still waiting to be discovered.
