What you see, is the real me. Straight up, sincere and old enough not to apologize for having opinions.
I'm a California native, artist, activist and proud mom with one grown son.
Just like you, I have a story. My story is a blend of deep emotion and joyful surrender, with heartache, forgiveness and triumph folded in. I pride myself on being a woman whose survived adversity and learned to use her tough life experiences to strengthen rather than repel her. It's taken a while but, I've had decades of practice.
Women have the opportunity to break old patterns and stigmas around being self-employed moms, that our mother's and grandma's didn't, and we can help to cement new narratives for future generations.
I consider myself a come-back Woman, relentlessly committed to continue evolving through my life.
What about YOU?
As women, we don't have to give up everything we are to be great moms. In fact, it's an important model that our kids SEE us doing what makes us happy as parents. That they see us taking chances, overcoming obstacles and staying true to who we are! This is a powerful life example for our kids to grow on.
After working outside the home through my sons formidable years, a milestone birthday forced me to face the reality I'd lost my identity and connection to my art and self-expression. Maintaining 'status quo' and the daily grind consumed me and left me feeling tired and sad about my life.
The woman I saw in the mirror had so much more to give and experience than the day-to-day life I was living - just to pay the bills. That was the moment I decided to make a dramatic change. So, I left my executive assistant position of eleven years and hit the ground running for a fresh start!
In the first few years of developing my business, I became obsessed with learning digital marketing and social media. In many ways, I worked harder than I ever have in my life, tirelessly consuming content, webinars, taking prestigious marketing programs, learning about technology, plugins, branding, copy writing and the list goes on.
Since then, I've helped a variety of specialty and creative entrepreneurs, from complete starters to six-figure earners and ambitious DIY-entrepreneurs, get their content and systems on a steady income track.
I'm fired up about helping WOMEN forge their unique income path or side hustle.
Though I consider myself a quintessential multi-passionate, who loves to paint, sew, make jewelry AND play drums, writing is my true love. The power of communication has motivated and inspired me since grade school. I believe *communication is the pulse of business.*
I genuinely care about your success and I'm very proud, of the fabulous women I've been fortunate to work with like Laura Volpintesta, Founder of Fashion Illustration Tribe.
"Teresa really helped to open my eyes and see what I HAVE accomplished and see myself and my business ("my baby") with so much renewed love and sense of all I have built, so far — and where it can go! Also, as a mom, I love working with a coach that understands that part of my experience. I really needed support around — what do I want, who do I really want to reach, what do I want to say? What's getting in the way of that clarity and blocking the flow. I'm so glad I got this support and let it happen! "
Laura and I have known each other for about 5 years now and I consider her a treasured sister-friend. Laura has taught me a lot about getting out of my own way with art making and keeps me inspired with her abundance of both technical and abstract guidance.
The pursuit of being your own boss is one that forces you to constantly expand and contract. It requires being flexible physically and emotionally and learning to be both an anchor and a good student.
If you’re a multi-passionate like me, I'm guessing you thrive with constant change but, are challenged with focus and completing what you start. Does that sound like you?
Building a personal brand comes with deeper mindset challenges. You might get overwhelmed with tech how-to's, the pressure of earning or incorporating multiple passions into something people actually want and will pay for. I get it!
You may have doubts because someone told you that your idea wouldn't work.
These challenges are normal and with clear planning and consistent action, you will gain momentum and start earning money in your business.
What if you could have someone review your business and help you develop your ideas into a concrete strategy that feels good, is relatable to your ideal customers AND monetizes?
I care about helping you build a business foundation rooted in deeper clarity, sensible planning and deliberate action whether you're just getting started or ready to take your business to the next level.
Clarity begins with conversation but, ACTION is the ONLY WAY to change! Book your face-to-face Discovery Call with me to discuss the one goal that's keeping you at night.
Stop losing sleep!
I can't wait to meet with you soon…
