Hey! I’m Miriam.
I am a coach and speaker who is absolutely obsessed with everything personal development related. Why?
Because it has been the key to every transformation i’ve created in my life…and there have been many.
When I was about half way through university, I realized that it was not at all what I wanted for myself. I debated dropping out so many times, and every one of those times convinced myself that it was the ONLY way to success.
Surprised? Of course not. Most of us Millennials grew up with these same ideas, not only from our families but from society at large.
I did get my degree in Psychology (thankfully because it comes in really handy as a coach!) but it nearly killed me in the process.
My stress levels skyrocketed, almost all of my hair fell out, my confidence shattered and I felt completely confused about what I was supposed to be doing with my life.
By the time I graduated, I was desperate for a change of scenery. I was craving excitement and fun and adventure, far away from home.
Thankfully, at just the right time I was selected to participate in a competitive internship program in Nicaragua. Someone had dropped out, and they said if I wanted it, I’d have to be on the plane and ready to go in 2 weeks.
I don’t think I let the lady on the phone even finish what she was saying before I said, “Yes, yes, absolutely. I’m going!”
That internship was the beginning of MY intentional life. It was the first time that I even considered that I exist as a separate entity from my family, from my community, from my country. I was just me…and that was an incredible feeling. That 9-month internship was the one of the best times of my life, but before I knew it I was back to the ‘proven path to success’ laid out in front of me.
I got a job and climbed the ladder very quickly in the International Development field. I became the Executive Director of a non-profit organization and taught an International Development course at York University.
I’m fairly certain I had reached ‘success’, but it certainly didn’t feel like it.
To be honest, the world of work had always been a struggle for me. And as a result, years earlier, I started to explore options. I gave myself permission to see what else was out there aside from what I already built my career in.
It was scary as hell, to say the least, but I took the leap of faith and opened TWO businesses at the same time. lol Of course doing one at a time was just gonna be too boring. (Note the sarcasm)
That was early 2016, and here I am almost for years later.
I always had a little voice inside that nagged at me, saying ‘Miriam…don’t settle! You’re getting closer. There’s more out there for you. Don’t stop exploring!” Thankfully, I listened.
Today, I’m a full-time Entrepreneur, Mindset Coach and Inspirational Speaker.
And I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
It took me 10 years to figure myself out and what I wanted, and then a few more years to figure out how to actually make it happen!
This transformation and every single other one began with self-awareness.
I learned to dig deep into my psyche to figure out what my thoughts and beliefs are, because those were stopping me from finding MY version of freedom and success. I also learned to properly identify my emotions, manage my reactions towards other people and things in my environment, and to create long-term sustainable change in my life.
I have sharpened my most powerful tool (my mind) and I now know how to create and maintain transformations for myself and my clients.
Every single transformation that you want to create in your life - is possible. And I’m here to help you do it.
Hope you’re excited to make magic happen over here in my corner of the internet…because that’s always the intention! ;)
