Two years ago today I announced that I was leaving my advertising job to pursue a career in fitness.The past two years have taken me from making training, teaching and blogging my living to accepting a full-time position as the general manager of Metro Fitness Club and Metro CrossFit. Each step of this journey has been meaningful and 100% completely worth it. I have never regretted my career change and there has not been a single day in the last two years that I have dreaded going into work. That is awesome.
But I’m not done yet. There is still this fire in me to keep growing, expanding and connecting. I’m so excited (and completely terrified) to announce that I’m launching a new website to support a dream that I’ve talked about for a long time. I love teaching, training and talking about helping people identify their passions and interests. So much so that I want to share it outside of Charlotte. I want to take this show on the road.
I would be extremely grateful if you checked out my new website and Facebook page. I am now booking yoga workshops, speaking engagements and fitness presentations through 2014. All the details can be found on my book me page. Also, this is the first site that I have built from scratch without my web guys to help me so I’m pretty proud. It was many hours in the making but totally worth it and something I felt like I just needed to do on my own.
I have participated in several goal setting workshops over the past couple years, the kind where you have to write down your one year, five year and 10 year vision. I don’t know if you’ve ever participated in this type of exercise but it’s pretty scary. I was comforted to discover that one of the only things that I was consistently 100% certain of was that I knew my #1 passion was teaching and that I wanted teach outside of Charlotte. I cannot even explain to you how on fire I am about sharing my experiences, knowledge and passions with others.
I want to come to all of your cities and teach, speak, train, talk, drink wine…anything! I see workshops, retreats, master classes and so much more on the horizon. I also want to train other teachers and am pursuing my EYRT and embarking on my 500-hour yoga teacher training certification so that in the near future I can lead teacher trainings and continuing education seminars.
Charlotte and Metro will always remain my home base but my soul craves deeper connection and new experiences. I so appreciate your continued support and look forward to continuing to share my career journey and evolution with you! And be sure to email me and connect me with your local studio if you want me to come teach in your city!
THANK YOU! xoxoxo
