For 27-year-old Diana, teaching was always a dream job. She entered Syracuse University excited to embark on the career path she'd always dreamed of.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After finishing with a graduate degree and $201,000 of student loan debt in 2015 - she felt overwhelmed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In her first year of teaching, Diane picked up a side hustle to raise her income and put more money toward repaying her student loans.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 2016, she was able to fully pay off one student loan with her tax refund and this got the ball rolling on paying off the other student loans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“To the new mom sitting in the NICU holding back her tears: You did everything you could to have a healthy pregnancy but yet here you are...sitting across an isolette watching your baby breathe while all the monitors are going on and off behind you. You’re wondering what you did wrong and why your body failed you. You’re blaming yourself while trying to memorize and learn all the new medical terms that keep getting thrown at you.
Now you’re struggling to keep a good breastmilk supply because you’re body wasn’t ready to give birth yet-because you can’t breastfeed your baby yet-because you can’t do skin to skin as often-because the stress is affecting you so you gotta pump A LOT and chug down water around the clock. And trust me, you’re not gonna want to give up because this is the only thing you can provide for your baby that will help her thrive. Also, even though you don’t have your baby with you at night, you’re still not gonna be able to sleep. You will wake up wondering how she’s doing and you will call the NICU.
Or if you’re anything like me, you will drive yourself to the hospital in the middle of the night. You’re going to watch your baby fight for survival and you’re going to wish you could take all the pain away from her. You will also watch her reach milestones and they will fill you with pride and FAITH. You’re going to cry. You’re going to laugh. You’re going to get frustrated. You will also feel your heart sink every time you get a call from the NICU and you’re gonna deal with people telling you things like “you’re lucky you didn’t go through the third trimester,” and it’s gonna infuriate you.
But don’t get mad at them, they don’t know the struggle of your heart. But I do, I know what it’s like to push through the physical and emotional pain. I know what it’s like to watch a little piece of your heart sleep inside a clear plastic box. But I can tell you one thing; you’re doing amazing. You’re a fighter just like your baby and you will persevere. I promise you that one day you will look back and realize how LUCKY you are for being the chosen one. God chose you to witness a miracle and He only did it because He knows how strong you are....

I did it, I finished my 8 week program, Liift4! Woo hoo! Decided to reward myself with a massage 💆 This is such a change from how I used to reward myself.
In the past:
-Project at work went well - happy hour
-Hit a weight loss goal - dinner cheat meal
-Ate well all week - Friday night splurge
Now, don’t get me wrong. I still LOVE food, but I don’t have to stress about it anymore. My plan helps me stay balanced and because of my mindset shift, I no longer see food as a reward. If I want to eat something, I do.
After going through this cycle of new year’s resolutions, hitting a goal weight by summer, only to be back at or above my goal weight by the new year again, I’m so happy I found this program and that cycle is over! AND even better yet, I can share it to help my friends!
How do you reward yourself? I challenge you to find something other than food! 🧁 Need ideas? I’d love to help 😊

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Would you reject the status quo once and for all? Would you finally stop caring about what other people think? Would you chase after every dream you had like it was the last bus of the night?
I’ve learned, you only fail if you don’t try... you only fail if you quit! You’re in complete control of whether or not you fail! The day I realized this, I became unstoppable and once I was unstoppable, I set out to multiply this realization in all those around me!
There’s no greater feeling than helping someone do something they didn’t previously believe they could do. There’s no better feeling than showing someone how to create a life they only ever used to dream about!
So I’m asking you... you who’s been watching me for months who always wonders how all of this is possible and if you could ever do it too... what would you say if I told you I knew you wouldn’t fail? If I told you that you’d have all the support you could ever need or ask for? If I told you, you just had to believe in yourself? ...would you?
Because I’ve got a life changing opportunity on my hands that’s already changed my life, but now, I want to see it change YOUR life too. Deep down, I know you know. 📲 mesage me and let’s finally talk!! ✨

🧡These Hair Oils Though🧡
It’s where our journey began. Hair Game remained strong ever since. 🧡
Do you sense deep down that you're not yet living your BEST life?
I 100% feel you. I felt stuck and frustrated for SO many years, knowing in my heart there was more out there but without any clue what it was let alone where to find it!
It took lots of journeying (both out into the world and back into self) but I finally found my MORE to create a life of freedom and meaning:
✨Living in countries across the world
✨Training to teach yoga in India
✨Hiking up volcanoes in New Zealand
✨Learning to surf (in my 30’s✌️) and following the best waves around the globe in Indonesia, the Philippines and Sri Lanka to name just a few place.
✨Walking on broken glass in Portugal
✨Taking Italian lessons in Turin
✨Living in a van in Europe
✨Creating and facilitating women's workshops
✨Starting a heart centred business that supports others…
...and soooo many more deeply fulfilling life experiences.
But I know the path to fulfilment is not an easy route (I will be forever walking closer towards it). We all face times of feeling stuck, frustrated, unsure and scared of what is next.
If you can relate, then my FREE Soulful Success challenge is for you!
This powerful audio and workbook mini course gives you the tools you need to uncover and start creating your best life. The 3 day training is designed to give you greater clarity, unleash your hearts deepest desires and finally create a clear plan to take you there!
