Stephanie Could No Longer Continue

Stephanie worked hard for her clients and was a natural at devising successful advertising campaigns. The future looked bright until one day, while she sat in her car, she felt a heavy weight come down on her. It was at this moment that she realized that she was merely going through the motions and had, somehow, stopped loving life. Her passion was gone and she knew that she could no longer continue on this path she had so carefully planned for herself.

Taking A Big Leap

A few months later Stephanie booked a one-way flight to Australia, quit her job, got rid of her condo, and put all of her belongings into storage. Up until then, she had never even traveled outside of the U.S., and here she was moving as far across the world as possible to a land where she knew no one. It wasn’t easy convincing family and friends this was the right choice but Stephanie wanted to see where life took her, to be inspired and to find her passions for this world again. Eventually, her loved ones were convinced, in fact, many considered Stephanie brave for taking such a leap!

Worth The Risk

Stephanie’s two year journey overseas wasn’t always easy. She was faced with deadly creatures, crashing waves and strong currents, lonely caves, and even shifting glaciers that challenged both her endurance and stability. But the beautiful, life changing experiences she encountered were worth the risk and more! Stephanie found new strengths within and learned that being confidently vulnerable was the only way to truly experience the joys of life. Most importantly, she learned to love and respect herself enough to listen to her own heart, even when she feared no one else would.

Helping Others Discover Their Passion

Stephanie came back from Australia a very different person than the one who left, wholeheartedly embracing her love for life regardless of the situation. During her journey, she came across coaching and soon fell in love with this extraordinary process. The insights and tools she learned from her own coach played a crucial role in the personal development and success that she achieved.

Stephanie is the founder of Brave Paths Career Coaching and has been a career coach since 2012 after completing Co-Active Coach Training with CTI. She has extensive experience working in sales, marketing and customer success in the areas of SaaS, Digital Advertising, eCommerce, and Social Media. She has worked for large enterprises and high-tech companies including Microsoft, Sprinklr, and Demand Media. Stephanie enjoys working with executives, budding leaders, entrepreneurs and aspiring individuals to discover passion in their lives, whether it be a career transition, a new business venture, or a once in a lifetime sabbatical.
