The Rest is History*
In 2004, my Dad was still alive and he was helping me succeed at my BBA Marketing and Management Degree at Mount Saint Vincent University in Bedford, Nova Scotia. I was a client at a local fitness club and used every excuse in the book to not go. “It’s raining.” “I don’t want to shower there as I’m the only fat person in the locker room.” “I feel like everyone is staring at me. Judging me.”
Finally, I created a nonprofit society called NS FIT 4 U and marketed it at the Centre for Women in Business with business cards I made off my printer. Very basic. My church, Port Wallis United Church, let me hold sessions there for free and I hired a personal trainer to help us work together. The first night I was sweaty and anxious. I had lost sleep the night before as I was scared no one would show.
That night 30 men and women showed up and asked if they could recommend me. Some of them are still my clients, today.
I tried short film video production for six years and went to a Highland Coaching Business Retreat with consultant Jacqueline Kelly from Perel Media. We had a blast, but I realized my company, CharlieMac Productions (which I named after my father), was too much stress as I had been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, low thyroid, prolactin issues and was now Celiac. I missed my Dad’s insight (he passed suddenly in 2006) and knew that I had to do something different.
I had to make a change.
It wasn’t overnight.
I enrolled at Coaches Training Institute in 2013 thanks to support from a business Mastermind group that I belonged to and thanks to my personal trainer at the time.
I was hooked! I knew I could help people and live a life of purpose with daily intention.
