I am so grateful to share this amazing woman’s story. She is the true definition of someone who took yes for an answer, and built her business off of a simple dream. Her biggest girl power? – helping women build self-confidence and inner strength so they can START going what they’ve been dreaming of. I am ALL for this. Also she has a killer sense of humor, and we both share the same celebrity crush. Grab a cup, sit back, and enjoy your Friday read! Get to know…..
Current City: Toronto, ON
Hometown: Orangeville, ON
Full-time job(s): Mindset Coach, Flight Attendant
Hi Kelly! Welcome to The Boss Diary! So glad you’re here. Tell me all about how you became a Mindset Coach.
Thank you so much for having me Nkay! It’s an honour. When I was living in Dubai, doing my flight attendant thing + travelling the world, I was doing a lot of soul searching. I was figuring out who I was and what I was meant to do. So, I hired a life coach! And she opened me up to the whole coaching world. When I moved back home, I did a Life Coaching Course, started a website and coached my first two clients!
I think it’s incredibly awesome that you dab your skills into so many things. What is Bossbabe In The Making all about?
Thanks love! Yes, I am multi-passionate, that’s for sure! Fitness is also my thing (not just coaching + mindset work). Bossbabe In The Making is an online course I am currently working on! It’s for aspiring entrepreneurs who finally want to UN-STUCK themselves and start building an online biz. I honestly CAN’T WAIT until it’s ready!
Who are some of your favorite business women or entrepreneurs that you look up to and have inspired your work?
OMG – I am obsessed with Amanda Frances (@xoamandafrances) I love everything she does! Check her out if you need a GOOD dose of confidence, a money mentality makeover or tips on manifesting! For fitness, I love one of my good friends Kyla Ritchie. (@kyritchfit) She’s killing the fitness game and has a strong passion for helping women through group coaching and running fitness challenges! She also got me started on my first fitness program, taught me how to meal prep, and count my macros – She basically re- ignited my fitness LOVE which launched my whole LoveFIT brand. For deep soul + inner work – My own coach, is my go-to girl. Kris Britton (@Kris_Britton). She is so deeply feminine, connected to her soul and teaches on following your soul + working with the universe, in life and biz. Oh, and of course Gabby Bernstein…because DUH!
I absolutely love your Instagram highlights, especially ‘Spirit.’ How important do you think it is to have the right mindset within your personal and business life?
Thank you! I may actually need to update some of my highlights haha (currently working on my Instagram game). But yes, Spirit to me, IS mindset. It’s about connecting to your soul in order to find the answers, and then shifting your mindset + reprogramming your subconscious mind around getting to where your soul is trying to guide you. Basically, our minds are in our way, and blocking us from our truth. So, to answer your question…I think having the right mindset is the KEY to getting what you want in life (and biz)
Tell me one thing that most people may not know about you.
I’m single AF – anyone know some hot, successful, loyal, fun, humble, supportive, men? Does that even exist? lol
Are there any projects you are working on, and/or upcoming events that we should know about?
Def keep an eye out for my BossBabe In The Making program! For any beginner babes out there, I GOT YOU! It will be launching by August 1st. I’m also working on a 4 week, at home health & fitness program! Called Fierce + Fit! For anyone who wants a plan to follow, and a nutrition guide with some coaching and support along the way!
Name one thing that your hometown city is known for that some people may not know.
Lacrosse! Everyone here plays, and is OBSESSED with lacrosse. I also played! For team Ontario, my club team, and all through University (go Hawks go)
Where would you like to be in exactly 1 year from now?
Sipping a pina colada on a tropical island, with my laptop – taking over the world.
Before you go, what is one piece of advice you would give to women out there who are looking to start their own business?
NEVER GIVE UP! Getting started with building a business is a LOT of ups and downs. It’s a lot of “can I really do this?” “I’m not smart enough, good enough, capable” etc. And, it’s honestly all bullshit. You are capable. You are good enough. You are smart enough. Trust, that whatever desires have been placed in your heart – need to come to fruition. You are meant to create whatever is on your heart, whatever kind of business, whatever gifts you want to share with the world, THAT IS YOUR TRUTH – and it needs to come alive. What you focus on expands – focus on your greatness (even if right now, you don’t feel like you’re that great) Find a few small things that are really f*cking great about yourself – and start from there.
