How on earth did you go from
Reality TV to Mindset Coach?
Now, that's a story I've shared on stages all over the globe for over 15 years. And it's a good one, if you're asking me ...
Here's the kinda-short version: Yes. Guilty as charged. I was on America's Next Top Model (cycle 3, cuz I know some of y'all are about to google that crap right now.) I was a mess. Not the mess you are thinking of right now of a sad girl with a messy bun crying over "what am I supposed to do with my life". No, that's a "cute" mess. I was a legit chaotic, yarnball of self-sabatoge, suicidal ideation, vain, lying, stealing, insecure, depressed, zero confidence, negative bank account, where am I kind-of--mess. Get the picture? A MESS.
The next chapter includes an unforeseen "Divine" intervention.
You should know -- 10 years prior, I abandoned all the faith stuff, mostly because I thought my past disqualified me. But, in the middle of a photoshoot in NYC my Creator came looking for a mess to fix, and from what I hear, I was a great candidate for the type of work He does. ;)
And so, He fixed me. And He's still fixing me.
From there, I slowly began sharing my story. The more I served others, the more I realized what was missing out of the "spiritual" talks (hint: it was mindset work). So, I began consuming all the personal development content in order to share it with anyone who made eye contact with me. Yes, I was annoyingly quoting Tony Robbins to everyone. And I'm not ashamed about it at all.
Soon, my stage presentations became opportunities to coach from the stage - to help people master their mindset (with Scripture) and take agency over their life. And that's when I knew this was the work that I had been made for!
And that, my friend, is how a wild reality TV model became a mindset coach. (we skipped a few chapters, but I doubt you'll mind right now)
I'm sorry, did you say SIX CHILDREN?
Are they all yours?
YEP! You read that right. I have 6 kids. Plus, 2 daughters waiting on us in heaven. And yes, they are all mine (and my husband, Ricky).
I have to answer this question every time I flash my card in Costco...You'd think they expect people like me to shop there??
Ricky and I are raising our free-range children in Southern Missouri on an 80 acre farm where we grow pumpkins. PUMPKINS.
I KNOW! Who is this woman? I ask myself this question almost every day.
