I was an achiever AND a giver, and leaned on my smarts and determination (and a *little* yoga) to get me through.
And it worked pretty well, until suddenly it stopped working.
You see, in my 20's I was a full-on hotshot in the budding NYC tech scene, with some cool products to my name, a loft downtown and an IPO under my belt.
But the stress, strain and increasingly frantic pace were taking a toll.
Anxiety, brain fog and procrastination started creeping in.
Then short-temperedness, which royally screwed up my relationships.
In the mornings it took everything I had just to get out of bed.
During the day, more and more I'd wind up staring blankly at the computer screen, forgetting what I was trying to do.
Before I turned 30 I hit the wall, and hit it HARD. In fact, I had a full-on nervous breakdown. (Yup, paid medical leave and everything).
And just to make things even HARDER (because, you know, *LIFE*), my mom was suddenly diagnosed with AML and given less than six months to live. And our relationship was so bad at that point she wasn't even talking to me.
I was SO far gone I literally had to blow up my life in order to rebuild it.
So I left my high-powered high-tech career to study massage therapy, and from there Zen, high performance psychology, and productivity.
Massage didn't turn out to be the right career for me, but it WAS life-changing and opened important doors that I'd never even seen before.
INSIGHT: there's a difference between "managing" stress (which is really just treading water) and consistently letting stress wash over you like a gentle stream.
Now I've successfully juggled the most busy and stressful times you can imagine, like simultaneously building a business, taking care of a new baby (and mother!), shopping for a house, and helping take care of my elderly mom. (Yup, she made it :)
I wake up each day excited to help achievers like you build amazing businesses and outstanding relationships.
