About Tamara Ross, the Founder of My Life My Design
Just in case you were wondering...
I work about 20 HOURS a week, I'm the CEO of a multiple 6-figure company, and most of my time is spent playing and traveling with my daughter and husband.
If this is something that appeals to you... you can have it, too!
IT IS POSSIBLE AND I WANT IT FOR YOU!
It's funny to think about it, I wasn't always this brilliant and grounded (insert a laugh here). I mean if you met me, you would probably think I was born a powerhouse. I bought my first property at 23, had four by the age of 28 and was one of the top sales reps in North America for my company. Friends, family and outsiders labeled me as driven, motivated and intelligent. But if you looked closely you would have noticed a few things. Yes I had a big house, but I lived in it alone. Yes I was successful, but I had few friends to share it with. Yes I was at the top of my game, but I was extremely lonely.
And then it happened....
MY MINI BREAK DOWN
Now, I'm not calling it a mid-life crisis, because I was only 29 and I have NO intentions of leaving this planet at 58, but it was some kind of crisis for sure.
Let me take a moment to paint a picture for you.... I'm sitting in the Lion King at the happiest place on earth, Disney World, with my little sister (11) and a friend's daughter (15) when the tears start rolling down my face.
I started crying because I was HIT WITH SOMETHING. You ever get hit with something so profound you can't control your emotions...? Well that was this day for me.
What did I do? I phoned a friend... I hopped on the phone with my bestie and cried until the battery died. I know what you're thinking...how quickly can you send your little ones to be supervised by me? I mean, what did the 11 and 15 year old do while I was breaking down? I honestly have no idea...not my best day on this planet, I'll tell you that.
So what was this breakdown about anyways!?!? Well, there was the realization of my SELF, my existence on the earth and the fact that anything I wanted was in front of me, and I felt like I had done NOTHING. This realization was about the fact that people always talk about when they have enough TIME and MONEY they will ______... And I was hit over the head with the FACT that I had time and money and I hadn't really done anything of much importance. I had properties, money, stuff and a great job, but what does that really matter in the grand scheme of things? So I did what any normal crazed 29 year old would do, I quit my job and traveled.
For 2 years I couch surfed, traveled around the world, helped non-profits give back and became more MYSELF than I had ever been before.
Lots of people want to know how I got into coaching, and this is really how that happened for me.
Before I started traveling I was already coaching people in one of the world's leading personal growth and development companies and it was my travels that had me ground more into my capacities as a coach and mentor. As the dust settled on my travels, people were coming out of the wood work to ask for my advise and expertise. This is how I built my companies... out of the request of others.
Fast forward almost a decade and I have created the most amazing life. I'm married to an extraordinary man, we are raising a beautiful little red-headed girl and we've done some EPIC s*!t! My coaching practice has evolved to include showing people how to master the energetics of themselves, their businesses and money. And because of all of this, my clients have UNBELIEVABLE LIVES.
So I have a question for you... If you had all the time and all the money in the world, what would you be doing?
If you're reading this our paths have crossed. What drew this into your world?
