What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
In 2011 I was turning 40 and thought it was the end of the world. I had ‘married’ my corporate career and when the market changed I was one of many laid off. I took it personally and had to learn to navigate into what I’m currently doing which is helping women turn their mess into their message. It takes what it takes for humans to really get to the core essence of themselves. I’m grateful that I have turned my passion for empowering women into more than just a hobby. I love interviewing and hosting shows that allow women to speak their truth because when we get honest with ourselves we are more inclined to turn trials into triumphs. I don’t think we were put on this planet to suffer. I think we are here to serve a bigger purpose which includes self-love, gratitude, and overall kindness.
What message does your company like to promote?
Conscious Conversations with Teresa promotes love, light, healing, and fun. We are living in an Instagram society where we think we are supposed to keep up with the Joneses. (BTW: who are the Joneses?) . I encourage conversations that invoke like-minded and like-hearted people to come together and be transparent and learn to understand that we can do this life together.
In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?
I serve in a lot of different capacities that allow me to LEAD UP. I was recently a Top Finalist in the International competition called The Next Impactor. I have won several awards this year and I love serving as a leader for Junior League, and other non-profits. I’m fortunate to lead masterminds and I have a passion for training members of Landmark Education who live all over the world.
In business and/or in life, share a struggle you overcame that other women can relate to?
Sobriety!!! It is hands down one of the biggest struggles I have had to overcome. I think women are viewed a bit differently than men when it comes to alcohol abuse/dependence. Yet, despite gender, race, religion, or anything else, I know that I used “wine” and other drinks of choice to numb out, avoid responsibilities, fit in, escape, be happy, be sad, have fun, etc. My sobriety date is December 22, 2011, and I must admit that without God and a few of my friends I don’t think I would be alive today.
Did you have a Mentor, Coach or Sponsor along the way that was essential to your growth and success? If so, who was it and why?
YES!!!! I highly encourage everyone to find the right Mentor, Coach or Sponsor that is best suited for their needs. Do your research, investigate and ask the tough questions and don’t be afraid to make adjustments as needed.
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
SERVE, lead and teach are hands down what I love to do. I enjoy speaking, leading group exercise, teaching masterminds and so much more. Ultimately, it’s not always about the money as much as what I do to inspire others. I love teamwork and working on goals with others to solve bigger problems.
If you could give one piece of advice for women who are entering the workforce or launching their own business what would that be?
It’s NEVER TOO LATE!!!!! All dreams can come true.
