My Mission: who is heather?
If someone had told me back in 1994 when I was a single mom at 17 years old, that I would ownand be managing two successful commercial companies by the age of 39, I would never have believed them! From the young girl who doubted she was capable of being a mom at such a young age, to the woman who is now in charge of running these two businesses, I have now created a third and powerful coaching business.
I grew up in an amazing, loving and spiritually-filled family. I was always supported and given the ability to choose what I wanted for my life. At 15, I found myself in an emotionally, verbal and physically abusive relationship. I then found out at 17 that I was pregnant. I struggled until I was 22 to break free of the debilitating relationship and explore who I really was. With so much negative self-talk and believing the lies he had told me, I had an uphill battle to learn how to defeat the negative thought patterns that I had created.
I struggled though my early twenties as a single mom. One day when I was 25, I found a book that changed my life: Creative Visualization, by Shakti Gwain. That book set a course in motion for me and I have never looked back. I learned to break free of negative thought patterning and create new and positive thoughts. From that, I met my husband and we created an amazing family and 2 successful businesses together! It’s a dream come true for me!
Two years ago, I knew a change was coming…I could feel my soul was on a journey. My heart and soul have yearned to help people in transition for as long as I can remember. People have always been drawn to me and come to me with their problems. I decided in 2014 to become and Empowerment, Life & Business Coach. I have recently decided to finish writing the book I always wanted to write; and now I am finally working with my editor! I am also in the process of opening a Spiritual Retreat Center with my mother as my business side-kick! We are ready for new and exciting things!
My soul is a builder — I must honor that. When I was a young, single mom down on my luck and so depressed, a wise woman said to me: "Heather, you can be pitiful or you can be powerful, but you can’t be both". Which one do you think I chose?
