I was recently reunited with a high school friend who is completing her doctoral work in economics. Impressive. She admitted that it's exciting but it's been a very long road. Then she asked what I did.
"I'm a life coach, actress, author, and Urban Nomad."
Her eyes widened. "That sounds amazing! Why didn't anyone tell me that I could sign up for that?"
Well, you can't sign up for that. In fact, I think that's the best part. I am on my own path, using an internal compass, spiritual guidance and past experience to find my own way to spread joy to those around me. And you know what? It works. I live and work completely within my passions and I believe that you can, too.
As a certified life coach, I help people understand who they are so that they can create their own path to where they want to be.
One of the most convenient aspects of creating your own map toward your goals is that you don't have to "start over." You build upon what you've already done. So, here are some of the main highlights of what I've already done that you might be interested in:
I also won a bookmark design contest in the third grade, but we won't get into that.
The point is, if you look closely, you'll see how it all adds up quite nicely into being a certified life coach, professional musical theater actress, and published author who is an Urban Nomad.
When my brother tells people he has a sister and they ask what I do, he says I am a Collector of Experiences. I liked the phrase so much that I added it to my business card. My travels have included road trips through 48 states, being an overnight guest in the private homes of over 500 families, backpacking though Western Europe, teaching English in China, tutoring 3rd graders at PS 54 in Brooklyn, climbing a glacier in New Zealand, and exploring parts of the Middle East. My curiosity and quest for new experiences has also lead me to runway shows at Fashion Week, the inauguration ceremony of the President of the United States, official premiers of movies and Broadway shows, and being a Macy's Giant Balloon Handler. Twice.
