Advancing as a Producer - A Personal Career Update!

First of all,

Thank you for joining me on this journey of dream-catching, entrepreneurship, and more. I love you!

The past two years have been quite the evolutionary transition for me as a leader in the marketplace. 

I have up-leveled so many ways, and I'm so pumped to continue inspiring you to be the best version of yourself.

And guess what...I just finished 6 Months of Advanced Producer Training!

This was like going back to school full-time.

I had teachers, mentors, and meetings with Executives at Canadian Broadcasters.

The pressure was on, and Imposter Syndrome was high, but I got through it successfully.

Humble Beginnings

At the time, I worked full retail time as a visual merchandiser, which was all about styling and merchandising products. It was not what I wanted to do with the rest of my life because I had a degree in religious studies, and I didn't know what to do with it. I'm a coach by profession right now, and I was always fascinated with the universe, God, and spirit. That's why I studied religion and different cultures, and philosophy was a big part of my studies.

When I graduated, I was like, "What do I do?" My options were to become a pastor, a minister, counsellor, family counsellor, and all of these things I did consider, but all didn't feel right. At the time, my mom struggled with a mental illness, and I supported her that way. My high school sweetheart and I...
