Hey I’m Vanessa!

I’m a Brand Strategy Coach and Consultant for millennials around the world who want to ditch the cubicle and jumpstart their businesses online.

I’m also a Speaker, Content Creator, and a licensed Neuro-Linguisitics Programming (NLP) Practitioner.

Pssst!  Don’t know what “NLP” is?  Check out the FAQ page here.

But beyond that…

I’m a Corporate Escapee, a Cat & Puppy mama, and a girl who once followed a cookie-cutter path and one day said:

F*ck this sh*t, I’m creating a path of my own.”

You see, for the longest time I’ve always had a dream of being a CEO of a major international company (I got voted “Most likely to be CEO” in a yearbook… Twice!)

I aspired to live in heels and fancy blazers (Hello, Devil Wears Prada), have 2 phones, and be at the head of every large conference table….

To me, this was the definition of true success…

 So I hustled for it.

and dang, I hustled hard!

  • I took countless of internships at international companies.
  • I graduated Top Female of my class.
  • And I became a National Brand Manager overseeing multi-million dollar brands for the country within the luxury beauty industry by the age of 23. 

I checked off every expectation, every requirement, and every rule on “how to be successful” for any modern day millennial.

But when I found myself sitting inside a lifeless cubicle, typing away angrily at the 782 unread emails in my inbox, feeling sick because I was over caffeinated and underfed as I ran from meeting to meeting…

I knew that there was more to life than this.

There was more to life than living for Fridays and crying on Sundays…

And that it didn’t make sense….

  • to work for 40 years of my life only to get 3 week vacations.
  • to give it my all year after year only to get a 4% raise. 
  • to use 99% of my brain but 1% of my potential.

And most importantly, I knew that if I didn’t make an escape…

I would be joining the 99% of the population who don’t go after their dreams.

So one day, I made the decision that I would no longer become CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation… and instead…

I WOULD BECOME CEO OF MY LIFE.

I was done daydreaming at my desk, fantasizing how great life would be if …

  • I could go on vacation whenever I wanted,
  • to make money while working in my PJs,
  • to finally tap into my zone of genius ,
  • and create content around helping other 20-somethings unleash their fullest potential …

But while I had this beautiful vision for myself, I was SCARED AF to actually START…. AND I had NO idea how to create a profitable personal brand or start a business online (…can you relate?)

SO AFTER QUITTING MY JOB WITH NO BACKUP PLAN…

I invested in countless of courses… Read and listened to as many self-help books and podcasts as I could… Surrounded myself with top-tier 6 and 7 figure entrepreneurs… and learned the world of online marketing while working as a part-time coffee barista to support myself as I launched this business.

Needless to say, I walked away from the “glamorous” corporate life I had worked so hard for and instead decided to restart my ENTIRE career path from scratch.

I took the leap of faith, mastered my mindset, sharpened my marketing tools, and took a huge bet on myself.

….And ooooo, did that bet pay off.

Today, I now help other day job desk dreamers (yes – I coined this term) just like you to finally wake up and take the same massive action to build the life you want and a business you don’t need an escape from.

Since taking the leap., I …

✓ Have had the pleasure to work with a handful of other high-potential, high-performing millennials find their calling and turn their passions into a full-fledged reality (and make money doing what I love!)

✓ Have grown a community of over 10,000 people that follow my kick-ass content on Instagram, Youtube, and Facebook

✓ Have been invited to speak at multiple events, inspiring millennial leaders to unleash their inner bosses and lead a kick-ass life

✓ … and have woken up for the past 768 days feeling EXCITED about LIFE (the best part? I still get to wear fancy blazers and live in heels!).

So Daydreamer…

IT’S TIME TO STOP DREAMING AND START DOING.
SO IF YOU’RE READY TO TAKE THE LEAP…
