I wasn’t always so relaxed and comfortable in my own skin.
For a long time, actually, I was very rigid. I wanted to control everything and make myself perfect for the world.
My primary concern was "doing the right thing," going to the best schools, acquiring degrees & certifications, and busying myself with things that would make me seem more accomplished.
I thought to myself the more I learn, the more worthy I am.
Yeah, it all seemed perfect. But really, I was tired of making myself up, smiling through the pain, and putting on a happy face when all I wanted to do was check out.
I was sick of performing, pretending, and trying to be perfect all of the time.

So as scary as it was, I decided to STOP hiding. START living. And to just BE.
I chose to be honest about who I am. To stop putting on the mask, or dress, and pretend like I am perfect and everything is all right.
To say “THIS IS ME” -- take it or leave it. To have an opinion and voice it. To have an idea and make it come true. To own that I am enough and claim what is mine. To be fiercely courageous and go after what I want.
This is what the Pajama Coach is - it is me claiming myself and encouraging others to do the same.
Sometimes it means starting a business or exiting an existing one. Sometimes it is about trying on a relationship or leaving one. Sometimes it is about going on the journey to “find yourself: only to realize that you have been there all along. You just have forgotten how powerful you are.
This is about putting your foot down. Taking a stand. Being ALL of you and saying "Screw it, watch what I can do with my Pajama’s on."
