Some stories have an “Aha!” moment that creates jagged turns, and others journey along like a lazy river, winding gently but flowing steadily. Alene’s is somewhere in between. She always lived her life “on track”: getting good grades, finishing college early, getting a job where she got promoted quickly and often, buying a house, and never missing a mortgage payment. She was, by most definitions, a shining example of an accomplished young lady.
And yet, she went through her days with a moderate level of dread and the sneaking suspicion that there had to be more than this.
She couldn’t escape this one simple question – what deeply mattered?
This was the turning point for Alene. Living with her light that had flickered only occasionally and most times dimly, she found an insatiable desire to light this world on fire. That moment when her clients would realize what was possible for them when they pushed aside the arbitrary rules that held them down and watched them come alive after a lifetime of walking around half-asleep: that is the moment she longs for on behalf of her clients.
There was no longer any other suitable path than to devote her time and energy to lighting the fire – or stoking it – within her clients. Through one-on-one coaching, group facilitation, and corporate work, she seeks to empower, engage, and support others as they traverse careers, relationships, and adventures in search of their own bright future.
