Hey, i'm kelsey.
And I'm here to guide you to your authentic truth and potential.
You're not meant to fit in, and that's part of your Power.
So no more letting it hold you back from your purpose.
Introverted + timid
Incase you want to learn about me and my hero's journey before we get started on yours ...
What can I tell you? I'm a Sagittarius.
I live in Edmonton, Alberta - The part of Canada that literally no one comes for vacation but literally everyone comes to work.
I own a house in a safe neighbourhood with my partner who is literally an Urban Witch.
We have 1 cat and 1 dog, and I often cry when I watch any 3 of them sleeping.
We also have 2 fridges and a deep freezer - Let me tell you, if living in a safe neighbourhood with this much freezer room isn't adult-ing, I don't know what is.
But I digress.
I grew up with extreme social anxiety, I never felt like I fit in, I'm a total introvert and I've been plagued with what I thought was terrible work ethic since grade 3.
I hated school, hated traditional work, and hated the "System" in general. After being expelled from school young, I made a commitment to my self to be very successful without the traditional system.
I didn't anticipate, however, that it would actually involve leveraging certain qualities I rejected in my self for so long.
The same introverted + mischievous qualities that always caused people to judge me.
And truth be told, starting a business in coaching was not a romantic journey or an inner knowing that I had since being a child... Like, at all.
It actually happened along side a lot of pain, resistance, confusion and struggle.
Now, that may not be exactly what you wanted to hear right now, but I'd rather be real with you than make up a fairytale story.
Authenticity, in my world, is king. Would you agree?
BEFORE STEPPING INTO THE ROLE OF BEING A GUIDE,
I DECIDED TO PURSUE THE JOURNEY OF SERVING MY BANK ACCOUNT.
I blindly followed the foot steps of my older, “wiser”, better looking friends and became a heavy equipment operator.
The trades industry is where the money’s at, after all... *insert eye roll*
I thought I was so cool. I mean I LITERALLY thought I was bad ass.
I was a young girl running big, bad machines in an industry designed specifically for men.
I thought I was making "good" money, I drove a fancy car, and I could afford a lifestyle that my young and naive Self thought would set me up for happiness.
There was a small kink in my plan though... It wasn't long before not only my body began to deteriorate, so did my mind and spirit.
Just 21 years young and I couldn't even stand up straight after sitting for extended periods because the facets in my spine were locking.
I was in a constant state of anxiety paired with underlying rage, completely sick to my stomach on Sundays knowing I'd have to get up and do it all over for the next six days.
I WAS MISERABLE, EXHAUSTED,
AND COMPLETELY LOSING SITE OF MYSELF.
Is this really all I'm meant for? What happened to the tenacious commitment I made when I was young?
THE MACHINES I ONCE THOUGHT WERE BAD ASS TURNED OUT TO BE A DEATH TRAP...
THIS INDUSTRY WAS GOING TO KILL ME.
I'm admittedly a very impulsive human, and in an attempt to save whatever passion was potentially still lingering, I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Costa Rica, ALONE, to help rescue Sea Turtles.
I hoped that this desperate attempt at an adrenaline rush would lead me to my true Self.
And to put it lightly, the trip over delivered on that intention.
6 days into my adventure...
I FOUND OUT MY DAD COMMIT SUICIDE.
OVER TWO VERY DEVASTATING, COMPLETELY AVOIDABLE REASONS:
1. My Abusive Step Mum walked out on him after he couldn't provide any more because of...
2. Losing his 40 year career (in the trades) due to an irreversible injury, with no savings or other skills to lean on
Through the grief, I was guided to trainings, coaching, and most importantly, experience that encouraged the pain to propel me.
I've now made it my mission to help guide you do the same, and more, through my signature programs.
Although I have worked with many people of all backgrounds...
My coaching is geared toward the ambitious, entrepreneurial black sheep of the world.
The healers and creative entrepreneurs who never felt like you fit in, but also don't feel confident standing out.
Who are boarder line obsessed with personal development and truly desire to raise the consciousness of this planet through your own unique story and purpose.
The change makers of the world.
Who want to show up as your most REAL, RAW and AUTHENTIC self.
Uncover your magnetism, leverage your experiences (pain and all) and show up in your greatness.
To influence the world, starting with yourself.
To make real impact.
And yes, make damn good, heart centred money doing it (if that's your jam).
I believe the sky is not the limit. We are.
Once we suspend disbelief, reprogram our limiting beliefs, shed our judgements and tenaciously step into our purpose - the path presents itself.
Will it always be easy? NO!
That's what having a coach is for.
Oh, and one more thing:
I do believe whatever we create should also create the space to have
