I know how you feel.
Burnt out. Stuck in a career that doesn’t fulfill you. Stagnant. Knowing that you are meant for more, but you don’t know where to start.
After over a decade working in social media, I had lost the love I once had for it, with companies constantly putting profit over people. Still, I tried job searching in the field. I landed interviews. I thought a change in company culture would be good for me, but everything felt wrong.
Hey, I'm Danielle
I stayed in a toxic job...
where there was no opportunity for professional growth, and continued to overexert myself and measure up to someone else’s standard of success. Because, even though I was working on building side hustles and knew one day I wanted to work for myself one day, my full-time career had always been my identity. I didn’t know who I’d be without it. I had worked so hard to get there.
Meanwhile, my mental health was deteriorating. I had panic attacks every Sunday. It was affecting my relationships because it was all I could think and talk about. I stayed paralyzed in fear, thinking I needed the benefits, retirement plan, and “security” that a 9-to-5 paycheck offered. I never felt more lost, directionless, and alone.
Then…they let me go. So much for security, eh?
In a matter of minutes, I was no longer a corporate drone, but for the first time ever, a full-time entrepreneur (thank you, Universe). With my newfound freedom and stillness, I realized I was part of the problem because I didn’t listen to my gut. I stayed small, defined my worth by the amount on my paycheck, and thought I needed someone else’s permission to take those steps forward.
I finally gave myself permission to call it quits from the corporate world for good and take action to change my life in the way I had been working toward for so long. I even wound up turning down a six-figure job opportunity from a place I would’ve previously considered a dream company to work for because it no longer felt aligned with who I wanted to become. I felt afraid, but in in the best way. So, I sought out and invested in as much guidance as I could: coaching programs, courses, business communities, therapy, mentors, books, and podcasts.
More About Me
I simply decided to trust myself.
I stopped pretending. I stopped being what everyone else needed me to be for them and instead leaned into what made me feel most powerful and alive. I’m not gonna lie, it took a lot of hard work. I was terrified (and still feel that fear every day). But once I figured out how to break through my limiting beliefs, everything changed.
Now, it’s my mission to help millennials and dream chasers who are tired of settling for “good enough.” My goal is to provide others with the tools, resources, experiences, and accountability to help them identify their self-sabotaging behaviors and remove the mental, emotional, and productivity blocks that keep them stuck in their personal and professional lives.
