About 5 years ago I turned the big 5-0 and my whole world completely shifted.
For years I had heard how reaching the mid-point of life can trigger some pretty big changes and awakening for women. And yet, I never really stopped to think about what those changes could be.
But as my 50th birthday approached, I found myself thinking:
What would the second part of my life look like?
What dreams had I not gone after yet that I was ready to pursue?
What changes did I want to make and how the heck did I go about making those changes?
Fast forward five years and I am astounded at the growth that I have gone through. From going through a divorce to overcoming thyroid cancer, my journey has kept me on my toes, that's for sure.
But it also brought me incredible friendships and connections with amazing, strong and powerful women who all found freedom at fifty.
I began my career several decades ago as a dog groomer, believe it or not. Animals have always been a big part of my life and so it makes sense that that is where my journey began.
And I loved it. And I did that for close to 23 years before I began to notice the wear and tear on my body.
Hours upon hours of bending over bathtubs and grooming tables had taught me that if you don't respect the musculature of your body, you'll find yourself in a whole world of hurt.
It was then that my love for massage and health was born. And while it wasn't easy to walk away from my business, saying goodbye to that path allowed me to pursue my passion for health and wellness in a whole new way - something which I still love today.
It was in walking away from my business that gave me the courage to go back to school at the age of 40 to pursue my designation as a Registered Massage Therapist. And I truly believe that each step on my journey has been instrumental in bringing me to where I am now.
Because it was through my journey of health and wellness that I found a new passion - neutraceuticals such as Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi Mushroom) that reduce inflammation in the body and optimize health at a level I never expected.
Not only has Organo Gold products changed my health, they also opened me up to a whole new revenue stream. And as my success in the company grew so did my confidence.
I now help others find the health and freedom they have been searching for. Because just because you're at or nearing the mid-point of life, doesn't mean it's time to slow down.
My road has had many twists and turns and speed bumps but I wouldn't trade it for anything. It is because of my journey and because of my passion that I find myself here, typing these words and sharing this story.
Because I've been where you are and know how daunting the road ahead can seem.
Iam here to tell you that finding freedom at fifty
Not only that, but the best years of your life are just up ahead.
And I'd love to help you walk that path more freely.
