What’s your backstory?
Years ago I used to be very sick, very upset, scared, depressed and lonely. I visited lots of doctors and therapists for years and none of them had any impact. I was listening to a podcast that was interviewing a Veteran and he mentioned that he saw a practitioner of NLP to eradicate his PTSD. It took me another year to look into NLP. After having enough of the way my life was, I knew I had to make a change.
My marriage was falling apart, my finances were in rough shape and my health was suffering. I first saw a hypnotherapist, that meeting was enough to get me where I needed to be. I next got on a plane to learn NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis so that I could help myself. I left my training a new person, with no fear. It took me quite some time to adjust to living on the planet without being afraid because I've never known what that felt like before my training. I also left my training certified to work with other people, and so I did.
I felt called to become a trainer so that I could share the techniques with other people so they can live fulfilling lives and assist others to do the same. I now live in a beautiful home, I own my own training company, my health has improved drastically, my marriage is a 10 and I want others to share and experience what I have, and they will now.
What are 5 things you wish someone had told you when you first started, and why?
1. I wish someone had told me about the great tools that are available for automation in business. Knowing the tools I use today would have saved me a lot of time and energy.
2. I wish someone had told me about the Panda Planner. I wasn't great at planning and keeping up with tasks and that affected my productivity and that sure has changed.
3. I wish someone had told me that I would be in a leadership position before going through all my trainings. It's a position that I certainly am growing into.
4. I wish someone had told me that there are many programs available for installing great work flow habits. I found one by accident and now enjoy are great workflow.
5. I wish someone had told me to take a break every 1/2 hour to go recharge so that I can bring my best self to the table. I used to work hours at a time and it was draining. Now I work in time slot increments so I can show up 100% for clients and students.
