we've talked a little bit. You've told us that you had an MBA and that you're also a creative. But what is this whole kind of journey been for you? And why did you decide you wanted to go also into the business of coaching other creatives? I'm so glad you asked that. Because my why is so strong. I am so passionate about helping people fulfill their creative potentials. And I think that is tied very much to my own background. Because, like I said, I do come from a corporate background. My family is a business family, and growing up, it was always kind of not explicitly maybe, but it was understood that everyone is going to grow up to be a businessman or businesswoman. Um, that was the expectation. So even though I was singing Phantom of the Opera in my bedroom and age four, you know, um, and I was always kind of dramatic. I knew that I wanted to be an actress. Never even allowed myself to think that, you know, um and that was just hard growing up in your basically hiding your truth. You're hiding your true self. So, um, anyway, after I You know, I worked in retail for six years. I ran my own company. And then I got my MBA. I graduated from MBA, and I could not bring myself to open my laptop and start applying to jobs. It was crazy. It was a physical reaction. I just couldn't fake it anymore. And that period of time was one of the scariest times in my life. Just sort of coming out, I guess, to my family. Yeah, it was. It's my own in a weird way, Coming out story. Um, it's just really scary. Like, what will people say? I won't belong anymore. Will they love me? We have all these irrational thoughts, and but yes, So it basically after MBA I directly went to a Meisner acting conservatory for two years, and it was very much different for me. It was different than anything I've done before. Um, but I found myself there, and I just vowed to help other creatives fulfill their potential. So I actually really like working with, um I guess people kind of my past self people in similar situations where they're stuck in careers, maybe, or in their stuck in a path that they thought they should be taking because that's what society or their family told them. Um, but they know deep down that that isn't who they are, and it's my passion to help them basically, and just working with your clients also inspire your.
