Why I Do What I Do?
Why am I so passionate about helping others succeed in life and business?
In 2004 I had left my job as a software developer because I hadn’t been feeling well for a few years. I thought it was most likely stress but finally after many tests I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the age of 30 and went through surgery, 6 months of chemotherapy and 17 days of radiation treatment. I knew I was sick before this diagnosis but no one knew what was wrong with me. It took me getting to the point of not being able to breathe properly that I was sent to the emergency by my chiropractor. Crazy right?
As if that experience wasn’t enough, as soon as I was finished my chemotherapy treatments my mother told me her breast cancer had returned. She had battled it on and off for 6 years and sadly, this time around…a year later she lost her battle with cancer. I didn’t know what to do with myself, I had never lost someone so close to me. No time to celebrate that I was now cancer free, I sunk into a depression. Crying myself to sleep every night for 6 months.
The good that came from this, is that in trying to help my mom I had started researching cancer and all aspects of health in order to help her. Losing her fueled my fire to learn as much as I could about holistic nutrition and the keys to essential health. I enrolled in several health courses and worked at a health store to learn even more.
After some time passed I began working as a business consultant, helping new entrepreneurs in their first year of business. This lit my inner entrepreneurial spirit within me. I loved seeing them succeed and I also learned the path to failure for many of them too. You have to know how to set yourself up for success and I saw what was working and what wasn’t. A lot of it came from their passion for what they were doing.
A few years later, I ended up having another issue. I had developed some breast lumps and after a few doctors visits, I knew without a doubt what I wanted to do. I had seen my mother fight her cancer on and off for 6 years, I didn’t want to go through this myself again, so I made the decision to have a double mastectomy. It was a preventative procedure and it was my choice. I had a family history, had radiation already on my chest and now new lumps that would have to be monitored for the rest of my life. I have no regrets about my decision. It was the right choice FOR ME. It was a lengthy process which resulted in 3 reconstructive surgeries over a few years but I never doubted my decision.
I had made a choice that my health was going to come first; I wanted to be the best me I could be.
I started working with a company in the digital marketing industry and learned so much in 3 years it is incredible. I loved being able to work from home and follow my passion for helping others succeed in their own lives. Now a self employed business owner I get to combine both my passions together.
