hey There, I'm Britt
The reason that it was never enough was because I was pushing myself up ladders I was never meant to climb. It took me many years, tears, and regrets to realize that no matter how much money I made or how impressive of a title I had, I would only feel fulfilled when the work I was doing was meaningful to me.
Little did I know that...
After graduating from the University of Michigan with my degree in Clinical Community Psychology, I landed myself in a comfortable corporate job. As the first generation in my family to have attended college, and a former farm girl from a rural community, it felt like I had finally "made it."
Over the course of the next decade, I was always pushing myself toward the next raise and promotion, working longer hours and gaining handfuls of designations and certifications. The strange thing is that every time I would meet my goal, the satisfaction, assurance, and validation I was seeking to experience never came.
My saving grace over the next several years was working lunches and nights as a coach's assistant for a professional and personal development course. Witnessing and catalyzing transformations for clients made me truly come alive, and it was proof that when helping people succeed, I could feel on-purpose and fulfilled.
Thus, I obtained my coaching certification with the Coach Training Alliance and built my company, Authentically Aligned, LLC while also maintaining my current employment so I could provide for my family (Oh, did I mention I was pregnant with TWINS?).
The largest (and hardest) mental shift I had to make was to stop emulating others' versions of success and embody my own.
I founded Authentically Aligned, LLC because I wanted to help others courageously find their voice, claim their power, and create a life that brings them pure joy.
And now i'm going to help you claim yours.
Once my twins were born, I soon realized there would be a conversation, prompted by me insisting they could be whatever they set their heart on, only for them to ask me if I spent my days doing what made my heart happy. As it stood, my only options would be to lie to my children or make some B.S. excuse for why I wasn't living true to my word.
I opted for an alternative, where I would courageously claim my career choices so I could make the necessary changes that would allow me to look my children in the eye, and confidently respond, "Yes, I absolutely love the work I do."
That was when it all changed for me. Then, I reclaimed my power...
