Still sweaty from teaching two back-to-back corporate fitness classes, I decided to duck into Target to pick up a few groceries. I found myself wandering through the office supply aisles, looking at everything from white boards to file cabinets to storage containers.

I am truly embarrassed to admit this; I own a lot of this stuff, I know I need this stuff, however, I just don't know exactly what I need, and how to use it all effectively. BOOM, on that sweaty day in Target, I had an "Oprah-style LIGHTBULB Moment." THIS must be exactly how my clients feel when they walk down the fitness and nutrition aisles!

We all have talents, gifts, and expertise. My "expertise" is in fitness and health. Fitness and health are passions that I have chosen to LIVE through professionally, and personally. As a business owner, I still need to stay organized and professional, which is why I hired an assistant. I needed help, I found help, and it has made my life so much easier!

Now, flashback to me standing in the aisle surrounded by file folders, pencil cups and reams of paper. I felt LOST, it was an overwhelming and horrible feeling. Having Jess on my team, has alleviated that horrible feeling and I am able to feel successful with her help.

On the flipside, there is no need for you to feel lost in the fitness and nutrition aisle of Target, or LIFE! I am here to help you make YOUR life easier, and to help you feel successful with your fitness and health goals. You can find me here on the K102 website, or reach me on Facebook! This is what I love to do, so if you are one of those people, who feels the way I feel in the office supply aisle, drop me a line, I'd love to connect with you!
