Fear, doubt, & guilt are some of the key culprits that make us believe we can't change directions in our lives even when we know the path we're on just isn't the right fit anymore.

I'm on a mission to change our perspective.

Join me for the Rewrite Your Story series where I'll interview relatable, fun & inspiring women. We'll talk about fear, success, overwhelm & just have an honest conversation about life & how they keep going even when life doesn't go as planned.

For the first episode, I interviewed Marisa Flores, Owner & Chief Planner of The Event Ninjas. Marisa & I have been friends for over 20 years & she is an amazing woman.

Marisa isn't afraid to switch directions at any moment. She believes that life is fluid & her focus is on being where she is best able to thrive.

We discussed a lot in this episode including:

  • Not letting her past interrupt her dreams

  • How her high-quality inner circle is key to her sanity

  • Knowing who she will & won't associate with

  • What she does when her Inner Critic pops up

  • Why self-care is non-negotiable

  • How giving back to the community is in alignment with her authentic self
