Speak Your Truth Even When Your Voice Shakes
Since founding MoxieLife Coach in 2012, I have worked with hundreds of clients across a range of topics including leadership, brand development, business development and growth, career advancement and transition, personal and professional relationships, marriage and divorce. It's a pretty diverse list, but the central focus is authentic positioning to drive strategic negotiation and better outcomes. I was named one of Boston's best business consultants in 2021 and 2022 by Expertise Magazine. You are always in communication and always in negotiation through every interaction you have with yourself and the world around you. I primarily work with female business owners, executives and entrepreneurs to give women the tools to define and create their own success on a playing field that wasn't designed for them. I also provide certification coaching to new coaches in training. All boats rise together.
In 2020, I founded Smart Divorce Strategy as a separate, stand-alone division of MoxieLife Coach, to make the divorce process faster, more efficient and less costly for my clients. Divorce is one of the most stressful negotiations anyone can endure, especially given how much is at stake. And it is a clear example of how better positioning, especially in this kind of complex emotional, financial and legal negotiation, results in better outcomes for my clients.
Corporate America. Acquisitions. Layoffs. Living abroad (and almost being deported). Marriage. Motherhood. Divorce. Co-Parenting. Finding my passion in coaching. Multiple Sclerosis. Entrepreneurship. Business growth. Meeting the love of my life. And now, living my best life, being my best self and defining it every day.
My experiences don’t define me. I own them, learn from them and evolve along the way. They inform my choices, but don't tell me who I am. I'm the only one who can do that.
Breaking the Fear-Stress Cycle required me to release judgment in order to embrace acceptance. And it was only from that place I could truly access, know and feel confident in myself. It took a long time to get here, but my journey is valuable and central to my purpose in helping you define YOU.
The bumps in the road aren’t meant to stop you. They’re there to help you learn something about your situation ... and about yourself ... to get to the next step. And they’re there to help you appreciate that you are powerful and can move forward one small or huge step at a time.
There is tremendous inequity related to the responsibility and expectation placed on women's shoulders without acknowledgement, appreciation or financial reward. We are wives, mothers, employees, business owners and caregivers. These roles are minimizing labels that reduce our value to only what we do for others.
We are bombarded by social conditioning and media messages telling us our value is solely determined by our bodies. We've been conditioned to think external validation is the only kind that exists. So, already at a disadvantage, we cannot afford to minimize ourselves. Every second that goes by, we are losing. Money. Dignity. Autonomy. Agency.
We must individually and collectively reject external labels and define our value for ourselves, so that we can communicate with meaning and negotiate from a confident position to create personal, professional and financial empowerment. This is how we support each other in owning our power and claiming our rights. This is why I do what I do.
