Why I'm Still A Chief Inspirational Officer

It’s been eight years since I took on the title “Chief Inspirational Officer,” and recently I’ve been wondering if it’s really the right title for me.

When I asked professional business owners, entrepreneurs, leaders (people like you) what do they need to STOP doing; 9 out of 10 responded with ‘stop doubting myself’.  This is the PROBLEM that I SOLVE as your CIO.

It’s been extremely natural for me to create systems, strategies and tangible actions to take to pick yourself back up and get going again.  The mantra that I speak is this; a setback is a setup for a comeback.  I breathe this daily discipline myself as I too have experienced numerous setbacks.  For me personally I’ve had to overcome health obstacles on a regular basis.  I like to say, “I’m the healthiest, unhealthy person you’ll find”.  I took myself out of the game for an entire year and through that, this brand developed.  I’ll share that powerful story with you at a later time. 

 Robyn Roberts recently said something that struck a BIG chord with me.  She said ‘make your mess your message’.  Ok, now I’m not the kind of person to think this way, I don’t see things as messy, hard, difficult, or impossible. I took this and empowered the statement to match my current desire to be more transparent. 

 This journey to transparency has caused me to reevaluate my choice of creating the role of Chief Inspirational Officer and how it impacts my clients and people I engage with. The truth is, inspiring people and teaching leaders to inspire their teams is a foundational aspect of my purpose. My mission to eliminate self-doubt and create as many confident, bad ass people in this world as possible cannot be done alone. In order to make the greatest impact, I need to teach leaders how to elicit that same confidence in their teams.

So tell me, Rockstar, is that leader you?

Are you the person who needs the tools to ignite confidence?

Do you have what it takes to be a bad ass in the business of confidence?

 I built this brand on the idea that everyone deserves an opportunity to feel confident, peaceful, and at ease with their business and their life. When I created my title, I’m not sure that I fully understood the profound impact it would have on the people I serve. However, now more than ever, I’m committed to teaching the principles of inspiration and impacting more people in 2020 than I ever have before.
