You're here by divine intervention because you and I are meant to be.

You're overwhelmed, frustrated, and unhappy.

You're tired of planning, wishing, and hoping. You just want to get more of what matters done. You want to make progress on your goals. You want to finally achieve the great things you've been talking about doing for years.

You're done with failing to turn your hobby into a business, struggling at work, having surface level relationships, and feeling meh about your life.

Simply put: You want to enjoy the process of living. You want to feel joyous.

I'm a writer and catalyst life coach. I'm here to help you bridge the gap between all that inspiration and the action necessary to implement your plans.

my story

My story began when I became a mother and wife at the ripe *old* age of 17.

By the time I was 27, I was a divorced single mother of three.
I was unsure of what was going to happen next.
And I was completely unhappy.

So I went on a journey.

I've read 150+ books on happiness, positivity, habits, mindset, high performance, and more...

I've attended dozens of seminars with industry-leading personal development experts...

I've listened to more expert lectures and podcasts than I can count...

But it wasn't until I received this swift kick in the butt that my transformation truly began:

"I did this?" I pondered

As I meditated and looked within myself, I became enthralled by the notion that if I created the life I was unhappy with then I had the power to change it.

And this time, I’d create the life I would love to live.

I’d own it.

I'd live with intention and purpose.

I'd be responsible for me.

I’d find my version of balance so I could enjoy what matters most and stop getting lost in all the emotional, physical, and spiritual clutter.

Fast-forward ten+ years and I’m happier than ever..

For more than a decade, I’ve been living my life on my terms.

Connecting to my values and balancing all of life’s demands.

Achieving all the goals I set out for myself, and my family.

Delighting at the thought of another day.

Owning my purpose and pursuing my passions.

Being proud of my journey and loving myself unconditionally.

What is a teacher? I'll tell you: it isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.

But when you're on the perpetual hamster wheel of yet another day in the life, it's easy to lose your way.

I work with women who are tired of that never-ending cycle and are ready for CHANGE.

Women who have decided that their time is NOW.

Life is happening. The years are flying by. Why would you want to waste another minute without at least giving your thriving life a try?

If you are ready to get started...

A few fun Carin facts...

I live in the DMV {DC/Maryland/Virginia} where I was born and raised.

I believe coffee is the root of all happiness 🙂

I have a BBA with a double major in Human Resources and Business Management {graduating cum laude *whoop whoop*}. I also have two Master Degrees - an MBA with a Public Administration major and a Master of Science in Project Management.

I'm an E-S-T-J MBTI Personality Type, which basically means I'm an outgoing-partyer-planner-organizer-systematic-practical-decision-maker-who-loves-rules-and-gets-sh*t-done.

My most favorite quote and guiding principle for staying sane, courtesy of the prolific writer Maya Angelou, is: "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it"
