In Tina’s own words:
“The greatest gift I received from my years of experience in the sales field (primarily in the printing industry) was the joy of sharing information with people that allowed them to make an informed decision. I considered the most important aspect of my various roles (whether as customer service rep, account manager or sales manager) to be education.
It took me nearly two decades to realize that sharing business to business information wasn’t really fulfilling my need to make a positive impact in the world. Once I awakened to my desire to share information that made a bigger personal impact on people, it didn’t take me long to launch myself into into the world of speaking, and of developing and facilitating workshops, seminars and retreats. I loved it!
However, as a typical Type A personality, I did my best to make up for ‘lost time’. I went into overdrive, burning the candle at both ends. It wasn’t until I drove myself into complete exhaustion, with a severe case of adrenal fatigue that left me too exhausted to work for nearly a year, that I had to face the fact that I needed help.
I turned to the medical profession first. My general physician couldn’t help me at all. A specialist began to create shifts in my body with hormone therapy, but my recovery plateaued in just a few months. I began doing research of my own, which resulted in some important nutritional changes that strengthened my body. However, the depression that resulted from the long bout of being unable to do any of the things that I loved, hung on.
It wasn’t until I discovered – and began implementing – the principles of Mindfulness that my world finally turned around. The discovery of Sound Wellness further enhanced my recovery. I am now back to being fully engaged as a facilitator and speaker… but with the knowledge and tools to prevent burning out again.
My positive personal experience with these scientifically-based practices of Mindfulness and Sound Wellness has influenced me to make these practices a bigger part of my presentation repertoire.
It is my desire to bring the peace, calm and overall wellness that I’ve created in my life with these tools into the lives of others.
It would be my humble honor to share what I have learned – both through training and the school of hard knocks – to help you create a more positive and productive environment that makes your people feel happier and healthier, and perhaps even feel more fulfilled.”
