Contribution – My first “real” job in America was to help provide access to lifesaving drugs to the poorest communities in sub-Saharan Africa. C., I could be found in places like Mali, Malawi, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Tanzania, and Liberia.Now I give my time and expertise to smart professional women who struggle with love in big cities like New York, Los Angeles, London and Hong Kong.I realized that I could take my life in ANY direction.By 18, I was 20 pounds lighter (tall and skinny enough to model), quit drinking and smoking (never touched a cigarette again), became a vegetarian (never ate meat again) and read existentialism.Casuals, commitment-phonies and just plain jerks that were self centered.
If you live in a big city (with people around you all the time and everywhere), have a successful career/business, great friends and an active social life while every night going to bed feeling lonely and wondering if you’ll ever meet him, then you and I need to talk. If it worked for me and works for other women, it can work for you too.Although I thought that I was open and approachable, men rarely approached me. I tortured myself with self-doubt and negative thinking based on disappointing experiences.Those few who did were players and douche bags who could approach any woman—you know the type. I realized I couldn’t and didn’t want to be stuck on my own anymore.It also helps you understand what made me the person I am today.
Independence – Born and raised by a single mother in Moscow, Russia.
I left a career in international development to start my own coaching business in January 2011 and never looked back.
