I’ve always been the sort of person who takes charge, plans EVERYTHING and intends to make big waves in the world. With the organization and determination of a first born child, I turned my focus toward politics as a young teenager. By the time I was seventeen I was already managing political campaigns and was making plans for law school on my way to running for president.
I was 17 when my mom escaped an abusive marriage with me and my 3 younger siblings. We were exhausted by how difficult and scary life became and my focus had to turn inward for a while so I could find the same power in my personal life that I had found in politics.
My family really needed a place to live, so my mom decided we should build ourselves a house. Never mind that we had no construction experience, she figured we could give it a try by watching YouTube tutorials. Not a single page in my elaborate planner listed house builder as a career option or even a casual hobby, but that’s exactly what I had to become—at least for a secret part of each day.
I still wore pearls and heels to school as though I had no idea how to run a hammer drill or lay a foundation block. But the extreme duality of these rolls was tough for a direct person like me. And hiding concrete stained nails under presidential pink nail polish was only going to go so far.
In only nine months, my family built a 3500 square foot house. Not only did we have a safe place to live, we became closer and stronger in every possible way. For the first time in my life, I was able to be fearless and confident all the way through.
I immersed myself back into the world of politics and by 19 I had worked with President Clinton, over 14 United States Congressmen, and politicians at literally every level of local and state government.
Until I realized my goals had changed.
Something big had shifted in my entire family after we built our house and it was time I owned it all the way. We had become the kind of people who shared our story—both the inspirational parts about building a new life, and the tough parts about living through domestic violence. Watching our family grow more powerful by owning our history was the most incredible experience of my life.
I began helping my mom build her book about our experience into a brand. And that’s when I realized I wanted to help other people do exactly this same thing. I wanted to help them transform their lives and minds by fully realizing their brand.
And you already know that when I do a thing I do it ALL THE WAY. So at 23 I quit my stable day job—the sort with benefits—and I started helping people build and publicize their brands.
I introduced clients to the same techniques that brought my family 52 television production studio inquiries, interest from a dozen feature film producers, press coverage from more than a thousand news outlets in the US and 75 countries and counting. I signed a deal with one of those major Hollywood production companies for a tv show, with me as the host of course, that is now in the early stages of development.
I tell you this because I want you to know that YES this life is a real thing.
And yes, it IS possible for you, too.
So, puhlease, if you walk away with just one thing from my story, let it be this:
Let’s get you polished, perfected and positioned so you can present your best self to the planet (and reap ALL the delicious, well-deserved benefits!).
I KNOW HOW BADLY YOU WANT THIS BRAND AND I KNOW HOW HARD YOU'RE WILLING TO WORK TO GET THERE. YOU'RE NOT CRAZY FOR WANTING MORE.
